When is a good time to buy a gaming system?
Posted 25 March 2013 - 01:43 PM
I decided it is about time to join the masses and buy a console, likely an Xbox 360. The last console I bought was the Playstation 2 on release day and have ignored the industry since.
I browsed around a little bit and see that they are still selling for 200 bucks. I am hoping to pick up one cheap and was wondering if there is a time frame I should hold out for to find a good deal. I know I am in the midwinter slump and doubt there is going to be a sudden big sale but anyway I can save I'd go for it.
Appreciate all the help.

I would also advise against getting an xbox if you intend to play online because microsoft charges you to use the console online. Xbox has barely any exclusives too.
So to actually answer your question... Most people wait until after E3 because price drops. However, any time you can find a good deal and you're willing to start playing it when you buy it, you should go for it.

Also, I'd suggest comparing Xbox and PS3 exclusives to make sure you get the one that has more games you're interested in.
