Lets take a look at trends for a min. What pops up on forums 2 weeks after a game launch. From what iv seen over the past several years it goes something like this.
1 week prior: Now announcing whicked cool game that might have this this and that
Launch day: Wicked cool game review including changes from the pre-release demo
1 week after: After playing the game for a week we reviewd it some more the replay value is this. its a system killer and we have a bunch of screen shots
2 weeks after launch: Help i fell through the floor and I saved what do? Help it crashes ever 10min. Help my xbox blew up. Help my PS3 hardlocks 20min into game.
3 weeks after launch: Patch/Patch/Patch/Patch/Patch
1 month After launch: Patch/Patch review on looking back and how the game is still f@#$%d also $300 DLC 10+ minutes of game play, and if you order now we will ship you a pair of scissors with wicked cool game engraved on them!
You've obviously went through hell with these consoles, I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm pretty sure not everyone's had the same experience as you. Needless to say I do agree that the current gen is already bad for its intended purpose.
