I got my PS3 one year after launch. My PS2 was about 2 years and a half later. My PS1 was about a year and a half later.

The reason there a bigger delay for the PS2 is because I was into PC gaming at the time and more or less lost interest in consoles. I got back into it one the PS2's library looked interesting to me.

I usually get one a year or 2 after so I can have a lot of games to choose from and also a price mark down.

I've never got a console at launch, I was going to get the Wii U at launch but I was reminded why I normally don't. The launch games are mediocre to crap. I wait for essential games.

it usually takes a couple years, i like having a large selection of games to choose from rather than sitting there once i've beat the one or two launch games i was interested in hoping something else i'm interested in comes out soon.

I don't have a time frame. I got PS2 a year or two in. I got 360/PS3 like 6 years in.

Whenever the price drops to a decent level and I have income to spare.

When it's priced at a price that is fair for the console, there's enough games I want for it already released, enough games I have interest in releasing soon after and everything is up to date like online and everything else.

I've had both a PS3 and a 360 since launch. I've played the PS3 a fair bit more than I've played the 360 and yet my 360 died on me once and had to be repaired. On the other hand my launch day PS3 is still working fine.

Depends on the Games. I preordered 3DS with Megaman Legends 3, but once MML3 got cancelled i quit my 3DS preorder.
