Why would you buy full priced games for $59.99?

Would never buy games at full price anymore. Games are discounted about 1-2 weeks later.

Not always, some games take forever to drop in price and/or rarely go on sale. But if it's a game I really want from a developer I really like, I'd be glad to pay full price to support them.

Depends on the developer.

i've only bought a couple, Oblivion when I first bought my xbox many years ago, and FFXIII because I figured it would be epic (good game but not FF epic imo).

Most of the time if I want a game on release I can find a deal, amazon used to have them now newegg has been having good promos.

But yeah I buy alot of games for 10-40 bucks tops

I'm a poor college student, so I agree completely with the TC. If I paid full price for every video game I own, the IRS would stab me to death.

Usually wait for price drops but if it's a developer I support or game I really want I will buy it at full price.

goddamn it, i wanted to boast about how this one electronics store sells new games for 44 euros, but then i did a conversion to us dollars and it turns out that it's 57 dollars <_<

*new games anywhere else are still 60 euros - almost 79 dollars D:
