    Yes I play a lot of games and nowadays games are getting really expensive to be honest. Good thing I found this website, it has some good ideas to save on video games. I like the fourth hack where it says buy a used game. That is something I wasn’t aware before. it is awesome that it can be 30% off.

    Thank you so much sharing this post.

      Sales are always abound, but why settle for buying from a pawn shop or a game shop? Why not directly buy it from someone who doesn’t need it anymore?

      By going straight to the source you can eliminate the extra cost of going with a middleman (ie; that pawn shop or that game store). You’d be surprised what kind of gems they will part with for just $5!

    I’ve noticed that with games getting bigger, demos are also getting bigger…often to the point where they’re like free games. The Valkyria Chronicles 4 demo on Switch lasted me at least four hours and that was simply how long it took to go through its available story chapters. (The demo is no longer on the eShop which suggests Sega caught on to the fact that it was too fulfilling…but still, it’s something that existed.)

    There are even demos that are more fun to play than their full versions. It’s true!

      That’s interesting to note. I haven’t taken a look at what the Nintendo eShop has to offer me. A couple of my friends recently started streaming all of the demos they could find on there. It seemed like fun.

    This is a great set of ways to find cheap games. I’ve found so many awesome games for resale on Amazon it is unbelievable. You can get away with old top notch titles for only a couple of bucks, especially if you don’t mind waiting.

    Another option I’ve found that works well is getting one of the network monthly passes, like Playstation Plus, It comes with free access to a lot of different games for download which is a nice perk, especially if you like the online interactions many games focus on.

      Oh yeah, I remember about those. They’re not bad at all if you’re focused as a console player and if you do deem it necessary to play online. I left those out because I’m not a fan of buying a subscription just to play online, which is something that all three of the major console makers are doing right now.
