What consoles have you purchased at launch?
I'm changing one of them because the topic is about what we purchased ourselves, not just what we got at launch. The NES I didn't buy, that was my mom. Everything after that was me though, saving up allowances/birthdays/job earnings once I got a job/etc to get the new Nintendo systems every time they came out.

So you meant if literally nobody buys it at launch? Ok, I suppose if that nearly impossible scenario occurred then there might not be much support (nearly impossible, at least, for a major console launch from a major company). Still doesn't make a person's individual decision to buy on launch day a financially responsible one.
A vast majority of the top 20 (something like 17) Wii games in terms of sales are from Nintendo EAD. It is commonly known that the Wii has suffered from not having good 3rd party support. I hope the WiiU will be better.

Yeah, that's more of what I'm saying. Galvatron said anyone that buys a system at launch is an idiot, but if it wasn't for early adopters there wouldn't be a system later on for the late adopters. Therefore the late adopters should thank the early adopters for keeping the system alive until they find it worth picking up.

Everything else never had anything of interest at launch for me, so I waited.
