Discount Video Game - Are You Using This Strategy to Build Your Collection Affordably?

One problem always facing gamers is how to afford all the games they want in their collection when many new games retail around $50.   That's quite a lot for something that you may only be playing a short duration of time if you conquer the game fast or just don't enjoy it that much. And so they are left to wonder how to go about acquiring all the games in the most affordable way. Here's some tips. . .

There are many dedicated “gamers" out there that love to play video games at home. Many of them buy games as soon as they are available in stores but often pay the “suggested retail" price which can get quite expensive. Anyone who has to watch their budget would do well to show patience and wait till these games go on sale.

You can reasonably anticipate that dealers will be often be reducing the initial prices either permanently or for a short-term “sale". So take advantage of this is you can just wait for a couple of extra days or weeks. Continue reading the Sunday newspaper advertisements and that game you've had your eye on might just be marked down soon after its release.

The second way to acquire all the video games you want in your collection is to make it a habit of buying used video games. This strategy often allows you to buy at prices up to half-off (or more) of their original price. A lot of gamers finish their games quite quickly and then want to get sell or trade in their “conquered" games in order to put that money back into the next game on their list. So take advantage of this and you'll find you can grow your video game library fast and much more affordably.

You'll find used titles at local stores which sell used video games and accessories or on eBay auctions. You would just need to make sure that the game you are getting is still be in good, playable condition. Otherwise, it's not a bargain. So, check with the seller to confirm it works for them and ask what their return policy is should the game not work for you.

The final option would be simply to rent them instead. Many stores carrying video games also have some available for rental. Usually, you can play the game and beat it within a few days and then just return it and get another one to play for awhile. This is definitely better than having to shell out fifty dollars for each game and then collecting piles of video games that you may rarely ever use again. This is where video game reviews become useful as well. If the reviews lead you to think that the game will either get beaten fast or will not be right for you, it would not be a bad idea to simply rent it first and then find out if it truly is a game that you will wish to keep in a permanent collection.   Once you determine you do consider it a “keeper" and want to own it, buy it used as explained above.
