PS1 - the week of launch

PS2 - waited overnight in line for it.

PS3 - 2 days before launch (friend was the store manager and gave it to me it early)

PS4 - Unlikely or 2016. I have no interest in the 720 or Wii U either.

Maybe I am losing interest in gaming, maybe my expectations were too high for the PS4. Maybe I am happy with my PS3 and will play numerous games I missed out on the next few years?

PS3 - Early 2008
PS4 - Possibly never, but if I do it will be after 2 -3 price drops.

Bought my PS3 last year of May used for $199, the 160gb model. I don't like the direction where console gaming is going with the $60 retail price of video games, all the drm, and other forms of anti-consumer restrictions.

I don't like Sony. I don't care how good the specs are on the PS4, I only bought the PS3 because there is a lot of good games for the system. Sony hasn't released a good gaming device since the PSP. I'll buy a Wii U in the future once it's hacked.

PS3- 2009(?) as a gift from a friend, and interestingly the 60GB backwards compatible one.
PS4- By sometime in 2015? There are a lot of factors, including providing(though I suspect this will be the case, at this point) the PS4 does have NO restrictions whatsoever in how many different PS4s you can play a physical disc in(a la all previous PlayStation systems). I also want to know more details, such as how well streaming of the PS1-PS3 library exactly works out. Also I'm in no hurry, considering I still have enough unplayed and underplayed(former the case less often, thankfully) PS3 games to play through.

PS3 - when they started phasing out 60gbs with PS2 BC

PS4 - When they release an exclusive Disgaea 5, Persona 5, Yakuza 6, Metal Gear Solid 5, or next gen GTA.

That's not suspicious at all!
