I am writing this article to help you find inexpensive games to save money, or to be able to buy more games more frequently. www.11v11.com/why-fifa-video-games-are-so-popular/ has some nice tips on this.
If you’re a junkie video game like me then you’d have wasted lots of money on all the games you’ve played over the years. Worse still, if you were just like me, you wouldn’t be limited to just one gaming console. I’ve got PlayStation, PS3, Wii and Windows games on. So many games I have bought and enjoyed that I will even do some review posts on here.
It’s the experience I’ve learned from trying to constantly find the cheapest place to play games I’ll pass on to you to save you some time. I could have saved quite a bit of just about twice as many games if I have this information myself from the start!
Do not be afraid to shop online first. If you are then you really should consider giving it a go. That’s going to save you big. Also don’t be afraid to shop off overseas suppliers online, this is especially relevant for PS3 gamers. Why? For what? Since the PS3 is running Blu-ray games which are Region Free. Unlike DVDs where you have to make sure that you buy it in the appropriate format for your country.
Doing an eBay search is also not a bad idea either. Especially after Xmas, there are often hundreds of games that sell as undesirable gifts for a bargain. Brand new and pre-owned.
Games Exchange / Selling
It is something I initially had a problem with. I was a hoarder of the game; I would keep all my games and not be able to part with them. A very onerous problem. Trading in some games is a no brainer, for instance EA Sports Games, if I buy FIFA 11, I won’t keep FIFA 10. So, such trades are easy. The next one isn’t that easy. Do you have a look at your collection of games, do you have any in there that you have completed or not played in a few months? Consider brokering them in. Some retailers offer trade in deals where games are available for free or where they give you a fair value exchange.
