Why would you buy full priced games for $59.99?

I only pay full price when I pre order stuff if it has good bonuses with, other than that I only buy used games.

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

I was thinking the same thing when I was in the store today. I've made a killing this gen by simply waiting a month or so (backlog keeps me busy anyway).

Give it a month or so after release and you can find most releases discounted 20 bucks or so.

Fry's had Halo 4 this week for $39.99. Pretty typical these days.

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.

^^^^ This.

I only bought one game "day 1" this year, XCOM because I wanted to be able to play it as soon as I could, and also because I like Firaxis as a developer.

Hitman has dropped to half price in less than a month. I'd be angry if I paid full price.

Because I'm not poor like you.

If it's a game I really want and a company I want to support, sure.

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow II", "God of War: Ascension" and "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance" are already on my list. GOW is limited and I would easily pre-order LOS2 LE or whatever it's called once I know what it has and how much it costs.

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.

Same here. If it's a game I really, really want and/or want to support one of my favorite developers (we need to do this now more than ever) I'll gladly pay $60 on day one, maybe even more for the limited edition. If it's a game I want but can wait til a price drop I will. If it's a game I want now but do not want to support the developer because of their business practices, I'll just buy it used when it's around $40 or so.

So I don't have to wait, duh. Why would I wait months to play a game I've been waiting for for months just to save 20 bucks?
