How much spent on gaming in 2019

124 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So, I’ve done this for the last 2 years and it’s interesting to keep tabs on what you purchase over a year and can then use to compare from previous years or simply know whether you are spending too much or an acceptable amount on gaming. I mainly do it to just keep track of games I’ve purchased each month.

 

Last year I spent £370.89 between Jan 1st 2018 and Dec 31st 2018. I didn’t purchase one full game, the most I spent on an individual game was £19.99 on RDR2. The reason it was this cheap was due to combining it with some earned nectar points.

 

My most prolific month was September where I purchased 8 games, this could be due to the fact September is the month of my Birthday and decided to splash out money received for that on games.

 

Each to their own in terms of format but I would recommend breaking it down into months and listing each purchase by date including game title, the console it’s for, the cost.

 

Things to include:

 

games

consoles

peripherals

DLC

Season Passes

Gift codes

subscriptions

 

Not to include:

 

Gifts

Purchases with store cards (accrued points such as Tesco or Nectar) u less you need to add your own funds to it.

 

You can include games or items you sell and receive money back for them, selling via 3rd party sites such as eBay to offset some outgoings.

 

Example format:

 

January 2019

 

01/01/2019 - Spider-Man (PS4) - £29.99

07/01/2019 - Life is Strange (PS4) - £7.99

07//01/2019 - Spider-Man (PS4) SOLD - £15

 

Total - £22.98

 

Happy Tracking everyone for this upcoming year! it’s also a nice way to see what people are buying and also potentially alerting you to any deals on games that you may have missed

I'm not gonna calculate anything but based off preorders and what I picked up in 2018 easily was over 2000$. 2019 probably closer to $1500 unless.next gen comes out.

 

last boxing week alone I spent 350$ in a day on games..so 

 

if you have the extra money to throw at it why not

Yeah definitely, I see it as a challenge to see how much I can get for as little as possible

It’s not what you spent in 2018, it’s first day of 2019 so you update as you go on throughout 2019

Not adding up, but Probably spent around £100 on PSN sales. Biggest spend was £229.99 on PSVR with Astro Bot, VR Worlds, and Resi7 as well as Move controllers. Bought PS + for £39.99, which counts I guess. 

This year I'll not get PS+ UNLESS PSVR games are added, I'll not give Sony money via PS+ unless the games are ridiculously cheap and I can't find them second hand, and I'll be buying second hand and trading in all the games I can. 

I simply refuse to reward Sony given their censorship policy for anything other than VR, which I feel needs to be supported in the market. 

 

Edit: so I presumed this was for 2018 lol.

Seeing as I spent around $20000 on physical PS3, PS4 and Vita games alone in 2018, it's probably going to be way more than that going forwards.

I think I spent quite a bit in 2018 on psn store sales, approximately 20,650Yen (which is about £190 or so).

As for physical copies, just two games this year: Code Realize Bouquet of roses which was 1500Y (£13) and Hakuouki which was about 2000Y (£17). The DL Games I bought were Pio fiore with a 10% discount code which was the only full price game I bought this year costing about 5800 yen (£50). The rest were bought in 50% off sales: Ephemeral fantasy on dark, Steam Prison, Life is strange before the storm. I was gifted Amnesia World for my birthday so I can't count that. 

 

Since 2019 has just begun, I haven't actually bought anything yet but Kingdom Hearts 3 will certainly be bought, along with CTR.

For this year I only have like 3 titles on my mind till summer, then we'll see.

I spent $8,328.87 to buy 6x consoles/handhelds, 276x video games, 6x guide books, 38x gaming stuffs (replacement cases/accessories/memory cards/controllers/devices) last year.

  • Amazon = $1,933.04
  • Best Buy = $465.46
  • cdJapan = $513.85
  • eBay = $4,081.04
  • GameStop = $347.47
  • Ideal Factory International Inc. = $79.99
  • Limited Run Games = $181.95
  • Nintendo eShop = $75.78

  • Play-Asia = $298.06
  • PlayStation Store = $263.81
  • Steam = $12.73
  • Walmart = $75.69

 

I already spent $222.88 on Play-Asia to pre-order Girls und Panzer Dream Tank Match DX - Collector's Edition (Japanese) and Girls und Panzer Dream Tank Match DX - Standard Edition (Asia - English) and $107.97 for 2x Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition - Brave Vesperia Acrylics on Bandai Namco NA Store this year. They already took my money since I used PayPal to pay. I pre-ordered 5x games on Amazon which will be released in Jan and Feb, it costs $272.27 in total. I also asked my friend who currently stays in Japan to buy 5x Kiseki games, Cold Steel 1 guide book, Cold Steel 2 guide book, CS1-4 Artbooks (a book for each game), and a CS4 Magazine. I expect to send him $450-500 next week to cover the cost of these things as well as shipping cost. I guess it should be my last time to waste money in gaming (except pre-orders) before I get married in March 2019.

I try to bury all memories of me spending money on video games somewhere deep in my mind.

 

Image result for sad pepe

 

I'd rather not remind myself. Good idea though, keep it up! Interesting to see how broke / rich other people are.

January:

I had £50 store credit with GAME due to trade ins, exchanged for PSN credit and got Tales of Vesperia (£35) digitally preordered, the remaining £15 will go towards Resident Evil 2. I don't think I'll plat and trade in any of my current physical before that launches so I'll likely dip into my own pocket.

I spent exactly €500 last year on PSN which was much less than I expected. I did make a real effort to play games out of my backlog though, I think this is the first year my backlog ended the year lower than when it started.

 

It's very uncommon for me to buy a game that is not at least 50% discounted, the last game I purchased at full price was The Witcher III back in May 2015. I only buy digital games.

 

Most expensive game from 2018 was AC: Odyssey Gold Edition for €65. 

 

For 2019 so far nothing - I will be back ;-)
