iPad 4 or wait for rumored iPad 5

So for Christmas I kind of have a debacle. I'm a freshman in college, and use my iPhone 4s, iPad 2, and MacBook pro late 2011 daily for school work, entertainment, and watching Netflix/Hulu. As for entertainment on my iPhone/iPad I play multiple multiplayer games, recreational games, and many memory intense games like mc3 and such. My iPad 2 seems to run fine, but the Internet keeps telling me what a big jump it is from the second exertion to the fourth generation. I've been saying up specifically for Christmas to buy myself something nice electronic wise, and I think the iPad 4 is right for me, but on the other hand, I don't want my precious money to go to a device tht could all but be outdated in 70 days from Christmas by the rumored iPad 5 with its new features and design. Is it worth withholding my money from the iPad 4 to wait for the 5? Or is it worth having the 4 for the time being and just being a bit behind when apple releases more iPads?
