Next fall is an optimal time. You will have a sizable backlog of games, plenty of exclusives coming, and also fewer cross-generation titles.

I agree with the above two posters. Getting a new console a year or so after initial release is always best. More games are out, bugs have been fixed, general kinds are worked out.

When you buy a game console you dont' buy it for that weekend, or that month, or that holiday season. You're making an investment in your entertainment dollars for the next five to six years. Doesn't matter if you bought it at launch or in a year. It's the same idea. It all comes down to when do you want to part with your money.

2015+ by then there should be some games to play. As of now it's kind of lackluster with games to play.

I bought my PS4 soon after I got my tax refund of this year. I fealt that was the best time for me to upgrade. I really wanted to jump in on this consule gen early. I was unable to buy a PS3 till last year as well. (Lot of personal thinks went on in my life to make it imposible to afford and play in general last gen.)

 

However, I say for most people fall of 2015 would be the prime time. Most games will be out by then, more sales should be going on, and lots of games should be able to be picked up at a cheaper price then they are now. All in all, it's up to each person to decide when to upgrade to PS4. I've been perfectly happy with my purches and love the PS4! I have used it every single day. Even if it's just for Netflix/Hulu(Which I find runs better on my PS4 then my PS3. Power consumption issues asside.)

I bought my PS4 launch day and I love it, but I didn't need to buy it then. I keep going back and forth between my PS3 and PS4. For almost a month, I was exclusively playing on the PS3. Honestly, I would wait until 2015 because in my opinion that's when all the titles worth buying will come out.

I  hear ya,. But i like staying ahead of things if at all possible.  I'll most likely turn it in for a new one in a year or two and bugs should be fixed. So maybe buying a ps4 on release date has some advantages.
