People complaining about NEW games being too expensive ?????

Have you never heard of:
- a SALE
- Black Friday
- Best Buy gamer discounts
- Amazon no tax charge
- Holiday sales
- Toys R us buy one get one 50% off
- Amazon random sales
- Pre-order discounts
- Best Buy pre-order $20 credit
- Price drops

Theres NO reason to complain about NEW games
Nobody is forcing you to spend $60, I always buy new and never ever spend $60 on a game because I am not rich,
instead I take advantage of the list I just mentioned.

I have to agree. I wait for sales on everything now. The first step is realizing you dont need a video game on its first day of release. It isnt that important.

This too. They're slowly implementing it for each state. I still don't understand why though.

Used is still almost universally cheaper, and that's a big deal to those of us that are in the lower end of the money making spectrum.

Also: a lot of games are older and no longer being made new. So unless I want to pay absurd prices online for a new copy, used it is.

Oh children. I suppose 45 Saturn games was before your time.

Games are cheaper. End of.

Kind of defeats the purpose of them locking used games to begin with though. They are doing it to try to make more money, but now everyone is going to wait for sales.
