Games go on sale much faster than they used to and I am starting to not mind missing that hype that new releases have. I really want to catch up on a ton of old games I missed and my backlog.

Only certain few for me are day one now, Talking maybe 3 new games a year. Alright glad I got that off my chest XD. I know I am really late to the party

I've been doing this for years, for no other reason than I'm cheap. I can get three recent release games for the price of one new game

fair enough, i got FO4 & SWBF & regret both. The last game i bought day1 was da new South Park. I am looking at red dead 2 & FC5 as my next potential day 1 purchases.

I think the only type of game i would buy at release now is a MMO. Its just because i feel like i get behind in MMOs and dont want to feel like i am playing catch up. But like i want to play AC origins but i will be able to get it dirt cheap next black friday with all the extra content included. Maybe i would the next Elder Scrolls but i may would wait for that too because of the DLCs and mods that would come out over the year.

I agree. I've been leaning in this direction for a while. The last two games I bought day one were Tekken 7 and Injustice 2, and they're already on sale at deep discounts, but I used MS points to get them, so it's not so bad.

The only time I get games full price on launch is if I am getting a discount through amazon either from prime, or from e3 pre orders, or if they are Nintendo first/second party games.

Because yeah, like you said games get discounted crazy fast these days. Just look at the Black Friday sales on AC Origins, Wolfenstein 2, and CODWW2. About a month after launch and they are all $30 Canadian off on sale.

A game is only with a Day 1 purchase if you really want to get stuck in the MP imo

I keep telling myself to wait and I usually do, but at the end of the year, I always seem to give in and get burned by the games I bought full price going on sale a few weeks later for 30-50% off.

I’m about to start doing this. Bought South Park day one and played an hour and now weeks later it’s gonna be 30 bucks. Could of just waited, there’s just a few I need day one.
