depends, if i preorder it, obviously i will buy new, and its a game i almost 100% know for sure i will like, like i did with my dark souls 2 CE, if a game has a sweet ce i might buy day 1.... every now and again, i take a chance on a new game ip..... but its usually a once a year thing.... dead island, rage, dishonored, and watch dogs have been those in recent years.
but i usually ebay new games, if gamestop is cheaper (usually is for most 7.99 or less games) i'll buy used.... other exceptions would be buying new "preorder" Collectors editions new at gamestop to save money.... holiday 2012 i bought a dark souls CE "new" for 19.99 (which were selling for 35-40 bucks on ebay used).... other exceptions would be sealed ebay auctions, where people ask more for used ones (usually when its a more rarer game on ebay) or if its cheaper to buy new at gamestop (it happens sometimes)
if i had to guess, i buy new maybe 7.5-10% of the time.
