For me it really depends on the title. I waited to get oblivion and Fallout 3 until the GOY Editions came out, and still got those for $20 each new. I purchase most sports games used and games like HALO and some RPG titles. I don't like spending over $50 on a game...heck I don't even like spending over $30 most of the time. Craigslist is a great place to get cheep games and so are pawn shops. Unless you get some pretty awesome perks for pre-ordering it, or have a pokemon in it, i'm going to wait until I can get a deal.

I buy used...I usually don't have $50-60 bucks to drop on a game.

Unless I buy it on the first day/week, I prefer to look for a used copy if possible.

I always wait. Games drop in price fairly quickly.

^ Depends on the game, but I'm with most of you. I'm patient. Can't wait to play Resident Evil. Wink Hell, DMC 4 has been out since PS3 started and I've yet to get that. It's below $30, at least.

Really depends on how bad I want the game. I don't like buying used but for some titles I may wait until the price gets down to $20-40.

I usually wait as well. When I consider the fact I got the Game of the Year version of Oblivion which came with Knights of the 9 and Shining Isles all together for about $20, it doesn't even make sense to get it right away and shell out almost $60 for the game. You can buy three used games for that money and I like to get more for my money so I usually go with the used games as well.

Yeah, i can usually wait too. Although there have been a few games that I've gotten on the release day (Street Fighter 4 being one of them). i can usually wait until they hit the $20-$40 range

Never bought a game around th time it came out... unless it was a gift for someone. I can wait...years, if not for a whole new generation of console to come out to get it.

want now if affordable - ill buy - like assasin's creed 2, mass effect2 and batman - like i could justify those being worth playing now

for used

turok = 7$
iroman = 7$
ace combat - 12$
bad company - 14$

etc

for used games max i paid was vegas2 for 22$... cus of tax lol


new games - have to have like a 8.5 - 9.5 rating across the boards before i decide to buy (and of course personal preference of what i wanna play too) like gta4, borderlands, armoredcore 4answer, force unleashed 1 - i have em - didnt beat em - but ive been meaning too.... now i have too much games and still have no time lol
