Been wanting to upgrade my 34" 21:9 Acer for one of these for a while, but at this rate, I might as well keep on waiting.
Perhaps next year's will bring the VESA-1000 certification, HDMI 2.1, and perhaps a less ridiculous price tag.... Well, one can hope.
I try not to buy any game with DRM unless I REALLY like the franchise I'm buying into.
Otherwise, stay away from anything-DRM, and support the likes of CDPR and their GOG platform which is 100% DRM-free.
DRM's can go to hell.
On launch date? Neither.
However, PlayStation has ALWAYS had the better exclusives. I honestly have 0 reasons to go for Xbox unless I wanted to play Halo or contribute further to the US' bloated economy.
My criteria for getting PS5 on launch is if followed up on that rumor of being backwards...
Out of all these I feel GOG is the only one worth supporting. Though of course when not given a choice, we all have to use the "exclusive" platform something is released on so sometimes it's irrelevant.
If the PS5 truly has backwards compatibility to all PlayStations before it, isn't region-locked (not just for games, but BluRays also), AND can play 4K UHD BluRay discs, it's no contest, day 1 purchase for me.
Late to the party but thought I'd add that Skyrim is trash compared to Witcher 3. Played and beat both, enjoyed one, was bored to death with the other. Skyrim has the most boring plot I've ever seen. Even the first Super Mario had a better plot than that. Some of the side quests were O.K. but...
