Ok what do you think is best when it comes to getting a console chipped.

I am reasanbly new in the fact i only got a PS2 and XboX both chipped middle of last year, i am not into online gaming so am not bothered if i cant.

with the next gen consoles though would it be best to buy early and wait for the chips and get it done, wait for second gen chips, or perhaps anohter option i have not thought of.
