Used. it's more affordable, and more easily replaceable/exchangeable. Even better when Gamestop does that BOGO sale they have periodically and i save more money

Used > Brand New (On price drop) > Brand New (On release date)

Release Day if the game has some kind of limited/special edition I want
Complete/Game of the Year editions when on sale
Used from Gamefly sales

Rarely I will buy a new release on it's own.

I don't buy used unless I can't find the game new for whatever reason (love you amazon).
#25theshovellerPosted 1/4/2013 6:53:03 AM
Any way I can. That should be an option. That, or "Who Cares."

Some games, I pre-order and get the biggest, most grandiose version I can get. Others, I'll buy on a whim. Still others, I'll buy because why not, and it's an older game I thought looked interesting.

New on release date, shortly after or after a price drop. I never buy used games.
It's-a me!
#27Pereb27Posted 1/4/2013 8:00:39 AM
Other : All of the above.

A mix of all three, as I would assume is true for most others. There are some games I MUST have day one, others I wait for a price drop and some I get from the bargain bin.
