Next-gen consoles: should you buy on day one or play the waiting game?

GamesinAsia: The PS4 will launch this Friday, November 15 in the US, Tuesday, December 17 for Hong Kong and we’ll receive the rest of its Asian release dates soon; the Xbox One comes out next week, on Friday, November 22 in the US and late 2014 here in Asia.

It's always smart to wait for later but, I can't resist. I'm always a day one buyer.

I'm the same way. I have 3 PS4s to pick up and an Xbox One. I'm currently second guessing whether or not I should buy them this week and next but the kid in me really doesn't want to wait.

3 ps4's? 0.o

Also, I don't get the articles telling/suggesting us not to get teh console day 1, i mean, all pre orders are gone and it's a bit too late now isn't it. It's not like I'm going to cancell my pre order, it'll only annoy the people who didn't get to the chance to order it in time lol

It's always best to play the waiting game when looking at purchasing electronics

Next year , PS4/X1 will probably come with a 1 or 2tb hdd , a game or 2 bundled , for the same price as now.

Waited long enough.... 8 years.

Day One for me..... If, I can get my hands on one.

I'm just waiting for the developers to keep up with the progression. :)

This generation is more than a few years over time.
