I havent had a console since ps2, so since my bday is coming up i have decided to get one.
I don't know anybody who play's online, so the ''get what your mates have'' doesn't apply to me. That said, i will like to play online against random people since playing against the computer or story-mode can get tedious.
I am not a huge gamer so will only play occasionally (maybe weekends). The games i want to play are, NBA 2K13, FIFA 13, CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS2 and GTA V when that comes out.
I also don't want something too expensive since the next generation of consoles will be coming out soon.
