Tips on Playing Video Game cheaply using Gamefly and other online services


Video games are among the top hobbies for the current generation. But one sad fact is that gaming can cost a lot of money. Every few years, you need to buy a consoles that can cost as much as $400. On top of that, you may want to buy controllers and large TV screens to enhance your gaming experience. Last but not least, you also have to spend quite a bit of money on the games themselves. New releases of popular games typically cost anywhere from $50 to $60. If you buy just one game every couple months, you'll still end up spending $360 a year. If you buy a game every month, you're annual spending on games alone will be $720.

The good news is that there is a way you can save money on gaming by using the Internet. First, let's start with game consoles. Instead of purchasing them new, you should buy lightly used consoles on Ebay, Gamestop, Glyde, or any number of other sites that sell used electronics. Right off the bat, this should save you $100 or more and in many cases, you will get a console that is almost as good as new.

Then, there are the games. Once again, buying them used will get you a much better price, even though this will typically require you to wait a bit on new releases. A better option, in my opinion, is to get a Gamefly membership. By doing so, you will be able to rent video games from Gamefly and exchange the games as frequently as you like. Best of all, Gamefly memberships start at very reasonable prices, and you can get a one-month free trial if you are unsure of whether or not you want to get the service. If you decide to keep the service, it only costs $14.95 per month for the ability to rent one game at a time. You can read more at
