Why shouldn't you buy a game system when it first comes out?

Report as

Maybe a sense of fulfillment With all the titles we have on current gen console I just don't see a point to upgrading at the price they're asking. Unless you're an MP hoer who needs the next COD, It doesn't make sense to purchase it at their selling price.

I held out with the xbox360 and the ps3 and didn't miss out on anything. In fact I waited for the ps3 slim to come out before buying it and am glad I did so.

I made the mistake of buying the PS2 at launch and was bored stiff for at least 8 months, even considering buying titles like Bouncer. (50 bucks for 5 minutes of gameplay). Laughable.

The whole reason I even wait for price drop anymore is the same reason I wait for price drop on new releases: I'm an adult who isn't THAT rich and when I game on a budget I get way more bang for my buck. The industry is TOO pricey!

Because a better version might come out a bit later like when the ps3 first came out versions with more gb capacities came out.

I bought my Xbox 360 Slim that was under the price of the Xbox 360 when it first came out!

I didn't buy the Xbox 360 Slim when it came out, I just meant that the price I bought the Slim for was under the price of the Xbox 360 on it's release day.

The prices are twice as much when it comes out. I would wait at least a month before buying it.

So you can return it if it doesn't work and if its used, if its new then you're screwed

Why you should wait is because the prices could go down and you could save more money when waiting a little bit.

It will be super expensive when it first comes out because everybody will wanna buy it, and that's the time when the Company will be making most of its money.. They will lower the price later on to make everyone Else buy it.. so wait a bit.

Well im guessing you mean Play station 4 i'd say because just to hear how it's like from other people and if it's good comments and people say they like it then buy it i'm buying it with Call of Duty Ghosts LOL!!! Oh and one more thing they later come with games the game systems you want they come with games sometimes with the same price so i'd wait.

I don't think you should because what if another one comes out and you want it and it's better and don't you want to know if it has some problems. So if you buy the game system it will cost more money if you're a millionaire then you should buy it but if you aren't think about your money.

It costs more money, but on the other hand the first models are glitch-able, meaning you can easily find a glitch chip for it within' less then a few months of its release, download and play burned games.. Gaming companies always release a shittier more expensive version before the better one because they know people WILL glitch the system. -- And since PS4 is going to be built out of all computer parts, it will be glitch chipped or even as simple as a software hacked in less then a week. Lol.

Yes it costs $500 + $20 for the chip, but you won't pay a dime for games. In the long run, its cheaper to buy now.

Because it cost way more money when it first comes out because every one wants one but, if you wait a little time then it gets less expensive and there are probably be more games out for that system and stuff anyway. Besides its always best to see the reviews first because what if its a complete joke.
