Of course it's not the smartest thing to buy one this year, especially if you have a huge this-gen backlog anyway, but being one of the first is just so tempting. Also, I'm kind of bored by most recent games, a lot of games just feel like I've played them before.

one thing I did like about buying the PS3 and Wii the first year was that they had much more in terms of hardware feature than later versions. The PS3 Phat had 2 additional USB, Card/Flash Readers, and thew ability to play PS2 games, whereas with the early Wii Models had the gamecube controller slot and ability to play them.

I don't really see that happening this time around, since neither have backward support nor do they have additional feature rooted to the hardware that seem likely to be cut later.

Wow, first time I have ever used that word.

Next Gen consoles are like Star Wars and beer. Same rule applies.
