Buying A Next-Gen Console On Day 1 Might Be A Bad Idea

Really, why bother? We've reached a point where it seems utterly silly (and a huge waste of money) to buy a new game system on launch day. Just wait. (Next-Gen)

If no one buys new hardware early, than early-term hardware problems won't be solved, thus becoming long-term problems instead.

The only system I bought at launch was a Wii and that turned out fine. the rest I've waited for around a year or two then I get it.

I guess it depends on what you're looking for. I'm definitely buying a PS4 on launch day, if they keep this quality coming. I bought a Vita on launch day and haven't regretted it for a second!

I will wait a couple weeks after the launch of the xbox 720 to see if there are any issues and if not I will go and purchase one. Same for the PS4
