PlayStation network is a place full of games and it would be virtually impossible to play all of them unless you have inherited a fortune and have no need to work for the rest of your life. The chances of this ever happening are very slim at best (not trying to bum you out or anything) and eventually you will have to option for one out of two games that you want to play, at least for the time being. There are so many games and there are so many people that are viewing these games as Pokémon, like in “gotta catch em all”. While this is kind of possible to some extent while you’re younger and don’t have that much chores or work to do, growing up usually messes up with this ambition. Fortunately for you, as you grow up will start developing a more developed gaming tastes and will not wish to play every single game that may seem cool at first glance and because of that, you will be saving yourself a lot of money and time. And this is what we want to talk about, how can you minimize your expenses while simultaneously maximizing the enjoyment.



Well first of all, DO NOT buy every game you THINK is cool. Look at No Man’s Sky. This game is a perfect example of how games may not be what you want them to be. Even further, do not preorder games ever. This way you’re spending a lot of money for something that may not even be released in the end, such is the case with some early access titles that got abandoned way before they were finished. Furthermore, this way you are paying in advance for something that you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out and that way developers don’t really have any motivation to make the game better since they’ve already sold it as it is. And if you think about it, by waiting for a game to actually finish you can only see whether it’s the right thing for you or perhaps you should pass on this one, not to mention that the price can only drop as the time passes.

Second, try not to buy anything you to play “at some point in the future”. I know a lot of people who use to stock up on games during sales when their loan price, thinking that they will play it at some point. However most of those games and up collecting dust never to be played for some reason. Don’t be that guy. Think about what you want to play, think what you REALLY WANT to play next, and get it. Speaking of sales, it’s always a good idea to wait for those. During sales games are known to drop their prices up to -90% of their original value, so this should be a practice to go by future. Also, using free PSN code online generator is always a good idea if you’re a budget.

Third advice is to keep an eye out for “bundled deals”. These are the best thing that you can get when purchasing a game. In most situations you will get a bunch of games way below the price of a single title. Bundles are known to pack over 200 to 300 dollars of games in a $10 bundle! Sounds incredible, I know but it’s true. Console games are indeed not the common sight on bundle sites but certain stores like Humble Bundle are known to occasionally drop great PlayStation bundles.

Fourth way to shop smart is that, if you prefer a wide variety of game genres, consider subscribing to PlayStation plus. This way you will get new titles monthly, usually very good titles that you can enjoy for as long as you stay subscribed to the service. It is great way to discover new games and perhaps find out that you are into a genre that you never thought you would be. If you’re unsure about this, there’s a 14-day trial membership available for free so you can try it and see whether or not this is the thing for you.


And finally, value your time and money. Not everything is deserving of it no matter how tempting it may seem.
