No i have never purchased a new console ever on the launch day and the only reason is because of the lack of games at launch. The price also is the secondary reason i wouldn't buy any console at launch.
Beat me to it...but back then the Aussie dollar was trading at arround USD 0.70, now it's arround the USD 1.0 to 1.05 range.
It would depend very much on what titles were available at launch and how much of an improvement there is to the hardware. If it starts off with nothing but a plethora sequals, then like the PS3 I'll wait for the library to build up and the price to drop. But if there is a couple of exclusive new "must have" IPs that offer something new and a significant hardware improvement, then maybe I'd be willing to pay $1000.
Ha ha, yeah but still they like making us pay heaps for games so you never what outrageous price they could put on a PS4.
When the ps3 first came out in Australia it was really close to $1000, I did NOT and NO WAY IN HELL did I buy it at that price, I can get a beast of a computer for that price. Wait a few years (not even that long) and wham prices on the ps3 drops to like $300ish~ and then I got it. So I guess I'll also wait with the ps4~

i brought the ps3 when they released slim was very expensive in australia for a console when it first came out
australia making alot of sales on ps3 now though since the cost of it now compared to before was ridiculous
i would wait maybe 3 yr until i buy it. reasons why..
1. back when ps3 was first released, i hated it because it was to big, reminded me of sega and sega cd put together.
2. to many ppl had hyped up ps3 like it was a drug. i rather wait until all the orgasming over dies down.
3. i read a how buch of articles about ylod...i ask myself "WTF IS YLOD?" i told myself i wait until they fix or upgrade the ps3.
4. this a big 1....if japanese consumers dont like it, i am not going to buy. i was going to buy a 360 but the guy in the store told me the pros and cons about every system in the store.
No, I wouldn't... And Sony won't charge that much.
Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.
Gauss's Rating Rationale:
0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
2-4: A just plain bad game.
5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
7: An average game, should be played at some point
8: A good game, should buy at some point
9: A great game, day-one purchase
10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
Way too much.. If it was like 600$ (about 450euro or 375pound) I'd do it for sure. But that's about my limit..

Honestly, depending on launch titles possibly yes. Now that Ive finished with school and I have a pretty high paying job I wouldnt mond paying that little bit extra. However I think Sony should release it with a lower price, to boost the strength of the console in its early days.
