5 Reasons It’s Still Worth Buying Video Game Consoles At Launch

Here’s five reasons you don’t necessarily need to feel bad about wanting to buy an Xbox One or PS4 this year. (Blast Corps, Dev, Industry, Pilotwings, PS4, The Last Of Us, TimeSplitters, Wave Rave, Wii U, Xbox One)

And hardcore gamers like me, a sony camp member will get the system of their choice at launch :3

It's never worth it unless you're a passionate diehard gamer. Other there you're going to want to wait until the library gets bigger.

...or unless hardware manufacturer has pulled yet another Wii, where the console was so original and interesting that it was a race to buy it at launch.

It's too subjective.. I prefer to wait a few months until the hardware have been tested out and i'm more confident it won't have many bugs.. only then i'll buy the best console this gen IMO.. the PS4.

Same here. Not getting my PS4 till late Janurary. Let the diehards guinea pig it until then.

I'd rather wait till there's more games. Both launch lineups are pretty bad, only two games(Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3) between both systems that I would buy, even then I'm still not sure I'd get a Xbox One until they do a non Kinect version.

I'm getting my PS4 now because i don't want to wait any longer, it's been unbearable enough since the console was first announced back in February and then actually shown at E3.

There's 8 days to go and the days are going by slow enough as it is already, i want my PS4 nowwww....lol
