Where I am at every initial release - Wherever is best to laugh at the people who jump when companies say "Here boy!"
I wouldn't say consoles have come to that just yet. Apple products maybe, but not consoles.
In what way?
I'll probably wait a few months to see if any hardware problems arise on a large scale. Though my luck is pretty crappy, so while others may not have a problem, my console more than likely will. Outside of the PS1, both my original PS2 and PS3 had a laser failure.
I had the same luck with my launch PS2 and launch PS3, along with my launch Gamecube (lens and laser kept giving me problems). So this time around, I'll probably do the same and wait awhile.
I did go to the store to buy an Xbox on the day of release, though not waiting in line (it was the next day, reserved). Can't be bothered doing stuff like that again.
If what I see pleases me, I'll pre-order it and get it delivered to my door. Problem is, I'm just not that hyped for it because PC gaming has taken over for me and I've been playing a PS4 (metaphorically) since last year.

It all depends on what games are available at launch. If there's nothing I want to play I'll wait. Though I would strongly consider picking up a PS4 at launch if it was at least BC with PS2 and PS1 games.
