be wise to buy next-gen consoles at launch like 360 or ps3...
but its fine if you buy a last generation concole in a new box it would probably be ok..(wii)

If you buy anything at launch (360, PS3, Ipod, whatever), buy a warranty, as there will always be problems with new, complicated devices. This author acts like this is something new.

I bought a warranty with the 360. I am on my 3rd one now. I expect to go through 5 at this rate before they get it right. I will buy one for the PS3 also. Nintendo seems to be the only company that has ever had a reliable launch machine.

I bought a first-run Xbox and a first-run 360, and I've never had a problem with either.

Ssooo... the safe time to buy a first-run console is... now?

This is "NOT" a console only issue.

TV
PC
Media Players
Paintball Guns
etc, etc

Anything on its "FIRST TIME" out will either

A) have issues (although my launch 360 still runs great)

or

B) Will be improved over time

-------

It is not that it NEVER happens that the FIRST RUN is a GOOD RUN, but "First Adoopters" of a new product should be aware that they are in a way doing the "Beta" testing.

Cheers
