A few weeks ago, I documented my 2009 gaming expenses and mentioned that I was anticipating my 2010 gaming expense to hit approximately $1500. That’s a high number if you think about it.
At that time I was considering buying many games and while I still do, I didn’t factor in the release calendar. With so many games coming, I can space out my purchases and with the fact that many games are floating at the $59.99 MSRP, the amount of money spent should be less.
So with that in mind — and a bit of conservatism on my part — I’ve decided to set my 2010 gaming budget at $1000. I think that’s manageable and if I stick to my mantra of not paying MSRP regardless if it’s $59.99 or $69.99, I should be okay.
What are your targets, folks? Are there targets or are you just going to wing it?
