Yeah, probably. I'll be more than old enough to drive and I'll probably have money to shed.
Actually, I prefer that idea. I love the cold, but I can't stand pisssing rain or freeze for long periods of time.

Depends on the hardware. A Wii-like system? Already made that mistake this gen. It would have to be amazing enough to tear me away from PC gaming, which would take strong hardware (relative to price), diverse features and at least a handful of good launch titles, with future AAA exclusives in queue.

Nope, I wait at least a year after launch.

Nintendo?  Yes, without a doubt as I have every console since SNES.  I have yet to be disappointed.

Sony?  About 3 years in when the price is actually reasonable (I am still waiting for that to happen with the PS3) 
Microsoft?  At least 2-3 years in when I am sure they are actually functioning properly and cheaper.

No. I got the Wii at launch (launch-era, really) and to my dismay, Twilight Princess was kind of... lame. It took a while for the Wii to have any games that I would consider "Must Buy". Same could be said for PS3. The 360 on the other hand... had great title support right out of the gate, but of course I doubt there are any launch 360s still intact by this point because of the red ring debacle. 
Basically experience has proven that the right method is to wait and see what happens first, then purchase the console after either a price drop or a high quality release.

Nope. Whenever I am able to get it, I'll get it. If I don't or do, then whatever!!

Probably not. I have never bought a console at launch before.

I never bought a console at launch so I'm not gonna start now. I usually wait a few months until I can walk into a store and buy one without waiting in line overnight. 
Then again, I proved I can wait for several hours in line when I got a Wii.

" Yes...and my strategy will be the same as always. Pay a bum $50 to wait in line for me all day and all night. Rip the $50 in half, he gets the other half when I show up to take his place. Worked like a charm for both the PSP and Xbox 360 launches. "
That's expensive!  I'm pretty sure you can reserve stuff like that.  I did that for the PSP at futureshop when it came out.

" @WinterSnowblind:   It's precisely because of the build quality that I'm not going to buy their next console at launch.  Why should I reward them as an early adopter if I don't feel particularly confident in their ability to produce decent hardware? "
Indeed, my point was that the original Xbox was one of the sturdiest machines ever made, as are the Zunes.
There's no reason to believe the next Xbox will be as poorly made as the 360 as, like I said before, they rushed it onto the market.

no after getting the 360 and ps3 at launch  the first few years were just spent waiting and waiting for the good games to come out not worth it, i wait a few years till they drop alot.

I'll be in University so the likelyhood is no considering what I will get in terms of money, but hey that's what you have to put up with.

No, buying a system at launch is ALWAYS a bad decision.

I've never bought a console at launch. In fact, I tend to leave adoption a few years late.

If games continue to come out at the rate they are, and I continue to play games at the rate I do - I'll more than likely have at least a year's worth of backlogged games.
I'd put off the purchase until I've exhausted the current gen's offering.

Why? So I can have a shiny new system with no games to play except for hasty ports  that are so-so upgrades from last gen?
