How to Save Big On New Games
If you're someone who loves to play videogames, there's one simple trick you can do to save tons of money on videogames; wait. That's right, waiting can save you more than you think. These days, there are so many deals popping up, especially around the holidays. The holiday of 2015 brought major sales to the gaming market. Xbox and PS4 saw incredible sales throughout Black Friday weekend and while Xbox had it's "Countdown to 2016" sale, PS4 had their holiday sale as well.
These deals included games that had just released less than a month ago, including popular titles like The Witcher 3 (that I was able to snag for $25) as well as games like Star Wars Battlefront for $40, and Fallout 4 for $35, not to mention all the Indie Games and smaller titles that went on sale as well. Games that had just released that month even saw a price cut, like Just Cause 3.
My friend and I had foolishly bought a ton of games this holiday right before all the holiday sales, and after spending $60 on Star Wars battlefront, Halo 5 and Fallout 4, and Rise of the Tomb Raider, we realized that if we had waited at most 30 days, we could of saved nearly $80.
A lot of the time early buyers get screwed, so it pays to have patience, especially now a days when many products are seeing price cuts extremely soon after release. There are always sales coming up, and if you can stand waiting that little bit of extra time to get your hands on one of the new games releasing, it will be worth your while.
Prices have slowly risen since then, but are still less than the usual $60 price tag. I have linked Guitar Hero Live, which is currently %50 off, which is an unbelievable deal for the game, since it is ham packed with an incredible selection of songs.
