It doesn't count as a launch, but, I saved an entire year for my first NES.  That seemed like forever.

I remember when I first heard of the WIi (aka Revolution... I think). I waited for that thing to release for decades! Well, it felt like that. When we got it on launch I wanted to play it all day, but I remember I had to go to a Yugioh tournament, and I was a bit upset so I took a Wii remote, lol.

I waited a couple years before getting my first 360, I got it in the summer of 07 and didn't get Live until November. I have been wanting to get it, but didn't have the money at the time so I rocked on with my PS2 and original Xbox.

I'm going with the PS4.

 

Most console generations have been 4-5 years. The PS3 will be 7, it seems like I have been waiting 3 years to get my hands on a PS4.

 

 

Shortest wait ever was the Saturn with it's now famous apple launch, "it's available today"
