Buying new games can be expensive—but there are ways to play the latest games while saving money. Learn how to get new games for cheap with these five tips.

How to Get New Games for Cheap: Gaming on a Budget

If you’re a gamer, you know that buying new games for your collection can be an expensive investment. However, it doesn’t have to be. Whether you prefer to play on a PC or a console, there are a variety of ways to get the games you love at a fraction of the price. These five tips will give you some ideas on how you can get new games for cheap.

Wait Until After the Release Date

No matter what console you’re buying for, games are the most expensive right when they release. Fortunately, they rarely stay at that price. Even if you’re dying to play the game, it’s crucial that you wait a month or so—you’ll save a considerable amount of money. Another benefit to waiting is that most of the day-one bugs will be fixed by that point and you can enjoy the game without any glitches.

This tip benefits PC gamers as well. When you wait to buy a high-demand game, it leaves you time to save up for the upgrades that you may need to run it. If you wait long enough, there could also be a chance that the game will appear in an online sale.

Buy Games Previously Used

If you’re trying to save a few extra dollars, consider purchasing a used game; used games can drop to half of the price of a new copy. However, if you go this route, you’re going to want to do your homework as used games can often be damaged. Ask the retailer beforehand if you will receive a refund if the product is broken.

Rent Instead of Buy

Unless you like to own all the games you’ve played, you may want to consider subscribing to a game rental service. For a flat fee each month, you can rent all the games you want to play, on a variety of systems, without paying the full price to get them. If you want to buy a game that you rented, some of these services will even sell it to you at a reduced price.

Wait for Retail and Digital Sales

Whether you buy physical or digital games, there’s a chance that it’s going to be on sale at some point. Steam games for PC have regular sales and some even come in bundles if you pay a base price. And during events such as Cyber Monday and Black Friday, retailers often have their games on sale too. We recommend that you research when specific games are on sale, so you can make the most of price reduction.

Resist the Urge to Preorder

While preordering a game will often give you access to content you wouldn’t have otherwise, you have to ask yourself if it’s really worth the price. The biggest issue with preorders is that you’re purchasing a product without the full knowledge of what you’re getting. It’s for this reason that you risk overpaying. Waiting will give you the time to do your research on the game—read reviews, watch further gameplay, and allow time for the price to drop—before you commit to buying
