I've never bought a console at launch before. I just can't bring myself to pay so much money when I know it'll be half price (or less!) in a couple of years.
The WiiU doesn't really amaze me so I will be waiting for a decent Pokemon game to come out before I even consider buying one. Though the Wii never delivered on that, so I'm not holding my breath. I am not really a big gamer though... xD
