Remembering past video game console launches

For younger gamers, the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this month will quite possibly be their first console launch.

Think back and try to imagine what it might be like to be a kid right now with the Xbox One and the PS4 looming, and set to be released in only a few weeks.

I was there day one for the Xbox 360 launch. It felt so awesome. What was really amazing in hindsight was that, that console lasted 3 years before it suffered a RROD

Given that it seems about half suffered that defect within a year's time, that's amazing, indeed.

Enjoy it, its a unique experience. Especially if you go to a midnight launch or an early opening

Yeah ill be in line that day. It's been cold here in San Francisco but having my console ASAP is a must. I have lined up for shoes before but hopefully this experience is a little more civil and enjoyable

I've experienced every console launch since the Atari 2600. The PS4 launch ranks up there with some of the best. I don't know why, but it has given me that kid at Christmas feeling again. Something I have experienced in many years. Only a week away.

This launch will be different because we can all experience it throught pre orders in a larger scale, thanks to amazon that grew in this gaming gen. Nothing beats that camping outside and having that little thought behind your back that you might not get one but the great amazing feeling you get when you do
