How To Pay For AAA Games

12725 Views 53 Posts PS3 Software
So let's face it - 2011 has been pretty average in the way of killer games thus far. However the end of the year is shining bright with so many awesome titles due out!

So how the hell are you going to afford all of them? I thought this would be a cool way to see how people are saving up to score all of their most wanted games for the end of year rush!

Personally I'm cutting down on buying processed food - just going to buy fresh ingredients and make food in bulk and freeze it. That way I can stop buying lunch, be a little healthier AND save money for the games.

How about you guys?
my tax refund and small inheritance :O

Bash Marge for mik3y's stolen money and spend it.

Seriously though, i'd probably be trading games.
chopping rocks over night, trying to turn into the next frank white
If only i had a small inheritance or perhaps @Mik3y's money to pay for my games :(
Either selling my body, or taking advantage of EB Games' fantastic trade-in deals....

:P

I normally sell some of my games on ebay if I need the extra cash to pay for any new games.

I've got so many ps3 games, wondering if i should bother trading them in or should i just sell them? I have over 80 games and some of them i haven't even touched in years.

Will it be worth selling them?

I'll pay for it. (evil)

$50 do? [monkey]
I'm going to be banging 7 gram rocks, that's how I roll.

Then I can be bi-winning.

Yes. I've sold my fair share of games on ebay, and I've found that if you list it correctly, you'll get considerably more than trade-in value at any retailer.

How does that generate revenue you? :P Do you offer a trade-in service for rocks? =)

How does selling them on ebay generate revenue? I'm assuming you'll be getting less than the price you bought it for...

I'm the Warlock. People give me monies.

I might give some guitar lessons to make some extra cash. [MOG]
Ohhh stepping out of your comfort zone bro
Buy them all online or hopefully diablo 3 comes out soon so ill never have to buy another game.
