I bought my Wii and PS3 both a year after their launches. Both work absolutely fine.

Around the Network

I have a european launch PS3, which still works (I exchanged thermal grease and so on though), but I gave that one to my brother a few years ago and personally am using a model with much less power consumption.

360 broke within a year 5 times, PS3 (knock on wood) hasn't broke.

Got my Wii at midnight on launch day in November 2006 (with Twilight Princess :D). Still works perfectly.

Upcoming Games To Get

Definite: Kirby Star Allies (Switch), Mario Tennis Aces (Switch), Fire Emblem (Switch), Yoshi (Switch), Pokemon (Switch), Kingdom Hearts 3 (PS4), Monster Hunter World (PS4)

Considering: Fe (Switch), Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (Switch), The World Ends With You (Switch), Ys VIII (Switch), Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (PS4), Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Remix (PS4), The Last Guardian (PS4), Shadow of the Colossus HD (PS4), Anthem (PS4), Shenmue 3 (PS4), WiLD (PS4)

my cousin owns a launch X360.
It only had RRoD once, but they fixed it and still works.
Pretty amazing huh?

Still have a working launch PS3 and Wii. X360 has broken many times.

My 8th gen collection

My 2005 Xbox 360 is long dead even after many reflows, my Ps3 60 gig laser went after 2 years, but I repair consoles for a living so easily fixed.

Never had a console die on me. But then again, I did sell off my OG PS3/360 and have them replaced with Slim models.

Day 1 60GB PS3 still runs like a champ.
Day 1 20GB 360 the same.
Day 1 Wii in the land fill, about 1 and a half years.
Day 1 PSP died after 6 years.
2006 PC died in 2008.

Never owned a DS.
