How much do you spend on CONSOLE games each year?

26 Replies 285 Views Created 11-09-2011

I ask the question because I was thinking back, and it wasn't that long ago (4 years or so) that I was buying 4-5 full priced console games a month! Due to personal reasons I changed that, however looking back I can now see it was crazy!

 

I had over 400 games in my collection (retro to current), over 15 gameboys (I collected for the colours) and alot of consoles! It was crazy, I sold most of it though and now only have the 3 current consoles and my computers.. 

 

This year the first game I will have bought will be Gears of War 3 later this month! Last year I bought 4 games for myself.

 

Have any of you changed your game buying habits? Do you buy more or fewer games than you did for example last year?

Re: How much do you spend on CONSOLE games each year?

Since I got into PC gaming, I spend about €100 a year on console gaming.

Usually when I get a console game, I trade in a few old games to cover the cost.

Re: How much do you spend on CONSOLE games each year?

I used to spend over a grand plus a year on playstation games and buy every console they came out with, and reccomend their products to everyone.

 

Now I spend nothing, my friends spend nothing, and most of my friends are trying to sell their playstation gear and games

 

Playstation dont care about their customers anymore, they allow them to be abused openly, they didnt secure their users data, and they cynically use conversion rates to their advantage whenever it suits them, and their product breaks a lot..

Sums up Sony and most big companies today, the only time they are interested in their customers happiness is when there is a profit in it.

About 6-8 console games a year.

Not sure how many PC games I buy, because I get carried away with the Steam sales and such. Pretty sure the number's somewhere around over 9000, though.

I never had a PS console break on me in it's first year. My first PS3 died on my after 4 years of using it. That was after 4 years of continue use.

 

Now what happen with the Network break happens to any company trying to do business. Yet Sony being a large Company is put on the spot light. 

 

Look at Microsoft, it has more viruses  made for it and it is one the biggest software companies. Yet because Sony had a hack they are being blame for some idiotic hacker who thought it was cool to do so.
