i fucking hate when people think buying a console is an investment because its not ,its simply a purchase. an investment is something that should pay you over time and increase in value , consoles depreciate as soon as the box is open
From a strictly fiscal stance, yes. As a gamer, I have to say the opposite is true. A console appreciates from when you buy it because new games come out to play on it. No one ever said a console is a financial investment (unless they collect retro consoles).
By investing in a console, you see the return when more games come out for it as a result of its success.
