Do buy the latest games as soon as they come on the market?

I prefer to waite, a little while its better that way becuse the price tends to be much lower, and the demand level of the game usually has gone down, so its most likely to be in stock, but when you buy them as soon it comes on the market you have to pay new market prices, and everyone is clamoring for it so its most likely out of stock, and why pay 39.99 for something I could get later for 12.99 or less, so how about you all do you tend to buy the latest games as soon as they come on the market?

Some I do most I don't. Just like D3 and GT5 I will buy them soon as they come out. There are many games I would like to play but they cost to much so let them come down. I love to go to a store and find games for 12-20 bucks but that don't happen much.

It does not matter to me whether im the first to play a game. sometimes, they're just all hype and the hype results to these games being given ridiculous prices. i prefer to stick with the games that i know and they're the ones that typically have more longevity.

I usually wait until they've gone down in price a bit, I don't have a lot of time to play anyway so I can wait.

I do not buy the latest games as soon as they come on the market. I buy them before-hand, at least when there is a preorder discount. There are probably not as much savings but it helps keep up the hype of games.

i dont buy them but my grandkids usually have their parents rent them first and wait to see how much they really like them. then they get them for a birthday or xmas.

This is a really good discussion and I know that video games are important when it comes to everyday life,because they are a good source of fun and enjoyment when you are extremely bored,and when you have nothing else to do like on those extremely cold or extremely rainy days where you do not want to leave the house for any reason whatsoever,and I know that some people will buy video games as soon as they come out,and then I know some people will wait until the prices come down before buying a video game,and I know that different people have different preferences when it comes to games,and no two people like the same games,and I can understand why some people will like a certain game,while others do not like it,and when it comes to me I am a big fan of video games,and it is one of my favorite pastimes and I do not think I could survive without video games,and I do like to buy video games when they first come out,especially video games that are part of my favorite series like I want to get Splinter Cell Conviction when it comes out,because it will finish off mine and my fiances collection of my favorite game series of all time,but on most games I can wait until the price comes down,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

I tend not to even though the want is great. I find I can only play one game at a time anyway and cannot really move on until I get fully bored with that game. If it goes online I will probably not get bored too quick and the other games just sit there.
