It was released November of 2006 and I bought one in July of 2009, nearly 3 years after.

I am not gonna wait another 3 years for PS4 as the age thing is catching up to me.

Anyway, how long did you wait?
Add me if you are a trophy hunter or if you are a cool worthy gamer

About 2 years I think. I expect the same wait time for the PS4.

About a week.

I was working at a Toys R'Us at the time, I was able to hold one until I got my paycheck.

I think December of 2008 probably.

June or July 2008. I wanted to grab a 60GB BC model after they were discontinued but before they became rare and (more) expensive. I intended to wait until LittleBigPlanet launched in Oct. 2008, so my PS3 got to collect dust for a few months before I used it.

Of course, it has collected a LOT of dust since then, so I guess it was good practice.

Got my 120GB Slim in the Fall of 2010 I believe. So four years after launch.
