Broken poll. I gotta believe most people buy them at various times. Some I want day 1, some I don't wind up getting until years after they're released, and everything in between.

I usually buy my games at or close to release. I have pre-ordered a few.

My wife has gotten a few free but that was 15 years ago and before two kids lol don't tell her I said that :P

Generally, I'll wait a month to get it for $40 instead of $60, but I won't wait another five months to save another $10. That is diminishing returns, especially if the game has MP.

Buying at Gamestop is a very bad ide(a)... The price on new games in store are ridicules high.


$59.99 as opposed to $59.99 everywhere else?
I love video games : )

Depends, usually AAA titles are pre-ordered and pick up on launch day.

Everything else is random.

Pretty dumb poll. I'm pretty sure not one single person always buys their games at the same time.

There are barely any games that come out now that are worth $60. Been that way for years now so I just wait until a price drop. With the decline in quality in games I'm not surprised more companies are eying the digital approach. It's funny and sad as I don't want to see them do it but they are the ones responsible for their poor sales since everyone and their mother are being cheap with production and releasing these half-assed games not worth the retail they ask for.

The reason for poor sales is people like you with unrealistic expectations of quality and value.
