Does anyone buy pc games at full price anymore?

With all the sales I really see no point in buying games at full price anymore.

Sales on the good games don't happen till months after they release. If you get hyped for a game and don't have a lineup to hold you over it's pretty tough to not pay full price.

If $5-10 off a pre-ordering/release day purchases of games counts as "Not full price", then no.

Even with buying the odd game on or before release, it's still not hard to get 10-20% off most major titles.

It's pretty tough to convince myself to buy at full price. Yeah it won't be on sale for a few months, but the one that came out a few months ago will be soon.

No reason to ever pay full price short of limited quantities. Never has been

Yes, I bought a gaming PC because I have money, and I support the devs unlike some cheap ***** who wait until the game is like 5 dollars, but that usually takes more than 2-3 years, and I don't have patience for that ****.

These stupid sales and pirates are why some devs are giving PC the finger.
Nope Nope Nope!!!!

I do depending if it's a game I really want day one but most of the time I wait for a more appealing price.

For me a more appealing price depending on the game can be like $40-$45 dollars. Like although I did want the pre-order bonuses for Saint's Row IV it was not to get the 10% discount for being a SR 3 owner.

Torchlight 2 was the last game I bought for a full price (only $20) It was by an indie developer, and I tend to support high quality indie products more than others..

If I'm really hyped and want to support the devs, yes.
