poll results are always like this. Few people other than enthusiasts adopt early. People were mortified by 599 US DOLLAR and here's a poll from right after the wii came out

24% bought one, 15% weren't able to obtain one yet despite wanting it (mostly likely because of the stock issues the Wii had), and 61% didn't have plans to get it yet. Those are actually pretty good stats right there.

Isn't today's poll more optimistic though?

Eh, yeah I guess, I had just finished off my coffee, was a bit hyped up.

I want to buy a PS4, but no reason to buy it at launch, I still have PS3 games to play, and good exclusive games are getting released after next year

If anything, it's time for everyone realize that we should wait when it comes to new consoles. Don't buy into the hype because it's never fun spending a lot of money and waiting over a year for a decent game library to get established. Not to mention that some consoles do have defects early on. I had probably 5 or 6 PS1s because of disc reading problems, around 8 PS2s because of disc read errors, and 3 Xbox 360's that got the red light. Then after a year or two they come out with a better designed console. It sucked having the original 360 with a 20 gig hard drive with 12 free gigs when the slim came out with 500 gigs, console replacements don't bump you to a slim. With the PS4, you just know after a year or two they'll do a price drop and release the PS4 Slim.

For me I spent my money beefing up my video card and I'm set for quite a long time. I'll be able to run Watchdogs on ultra graphics. The only reason I'd get a next gen console would be for some really kick ass exclusive games like of course PS4 will have some new Ratchet & Clank games, new Quantic Dream art game on a AAA budget, Naught Dog doing something amazing, new Infamous, and so on. I can wait until the console gets a new model, a price drop, and a good handful of exclusive games are under $30.
