I'm going to preorder regardless, but may cancel if its $600. The fact that it's backwards compatible and probably wont launch with any games I wanna play will make me hesitate. May wait til holiday 2021 with some bundles or something.

Day One.

If they have some dope launch games it will be day one.

Close to launch, but not launch day. I'm not dealing with long lines, standing around people who are laying face-down in filth on the sidewalk, then a switch is flipped and it's waves of onrushing savages.

Is this still a thing? Just preorder it on Amazon (or some other online shop) and let it deliver to your home at launch day.

The last time I left the house for a console launch was 2006 when I picked up my preordered Wii... and even then I didn't have to wait in the store (or in front of the store).

Sure it's still a thing. The Switch is the most recent major console release, and there were threads posted here that showed loooong lines of people waiting to buy one at various retail outlets. In fact, I'm quite sure I even made the same, or similar "face down in filth" quip as part of my comment in those threads. And also in PS4 threads of a similar nature. Because I'm a fuckin' piece of repeatin' shit.

I'm sure such scenarios will be lessened by the continued rise of Amazon, but I bet they still happen with the PS5.

Depend on the exclusives and the price

I'll pre-order at launch from Amazon. If it's too expensive, i'll take advantage of the same as cash deals that Amazon offers.

pre-order ASAP of course, why wait!?

I would love to be able to hold out for atleast 1 year, for the revised models with a most likely upgraded fan for less noise, and power consumption. But the temptation will be too strong i believe.
