With the economy down and video games prices at a $60 a pop I figured I would write a quick guide to get cheap video games. The guide mostly consists of internet sites that I currently use.

 

 

1.) Gamefly

 

What is GameFly?

GameFly is the leading online video game rental service. With a choice of more than 6,000 titles, GameFly delivers the widest selection and availability of games for the Playstation 3, Playstation 2, PSP, Xbox 360, Xbox, Wii, GameCube, Nintendo DS and GameBoy Advance without the hassle of due dates or late fees.

For $22.95 a month, GameFly members can rent two games at a time and keep them for as long as they like. Members manage their GameQ online and receive games directly from the US Postal Service via first class mail.  GameFly is also the best source for high quality, used video games at exceptional prices.

If you don’t care about actually owning your games, Gamefly is a pretty good deal.

Lets say you buy 5 games in 1 year that’s roughly $325 (tax included).

With Gamefly, a FULL year of unlimited games costs $276. Depending on how many games you purchase this may be the right choice for you.

 

2.) http://www.cheapassgamer.com/

 

 

What is CheapAssGamer?

CheapassGamer is one of the most frequently updated video game deal site on the web. The site provides you with the daily deals, blogs, forums and podcasts. It’s a comprehensive site with amazing deals. You’re bound to save a lot of money if you visit the site often.

 

 

3.) Swoopo.com

 

What is Swoopo?

Swoopo is a relatively new internet auction site its gaining a lot of momentum.

The site sells sell brand new top-name products at incredibly low prices in auctions that start at just 15c with no reserve. The catch is the site charges PER BID. Each bid costs $.75, meaning if you don’t win an item you can potential lose money by just bidding.

 

I’ve heard good things about the site so far and its definitely worth checking out. The prices are so ridiculously cheap it really makes you wonder, how legit it is.

 

 

4.) EBAY

 

What is ebay?

I kinda don’t feel like answer this, because if you don’t know already…

Despite all the heat EBAY has received over the years. If you are diligent enough you will find a decent deal on EBAY. Hopefully you wont get burned by some douche bag who doesn’t ship your item.


 

5.) R4DS

 

I’ve actually wrote about this before. Long story short the R4DS allows you to play any DS game by simply downloading it to a loader chip.
