A Look Ahead - Q4 2012

VGChartz: "The end of September signals the start of the busy holiday season for the Videogame Industry and the months of October to December often contain the majority of big new game releases and account for almost half of the total annual sales of games and consoles." (3DS, Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, ZombiU)

So many great games, don't really know where to start...

Video game sales dropped in the summer quarter so companies will be trying to make up for that with some big sales. Watch out for them and buy the biggest titles first, as they will stay at their $60 tag longer than, say, Dishonored (which will likely be overlooked by many). Toys R Us has surprisingly been giving really good sales lately, with a 2 for $60 on several $60 games last month.

That's what I'm doing =p gonna be doing everything I can to save money and get all the games I'm looking at this year lol.

Imagine how many more games we would own if the retail price was still $49.99! I would easily justify picking up two games for $100, but 2 for $120 is pushing it. My decision before was always to drop the 100, now, I only pick one of the two and have to be content with that.

In essence, instead of doing 100 in sales the industry only gets 60....

Just my 34 cents.

All new games that come out in Australia are always priced at $100 so it's hard to buy lots of different games if you don't have a job.

But seriously $100 is a fucking ripoff and if you want to trade that game back in to the stores over here, they will only give you about $10 or less, for that game.

Yeah, Australians are pretty badly ripped off; not to mention how the ratings board sucks. Didn't they ban Mortal Kombat and a few other games simply because it was violent due to the fact their Mature rating is 15+? (I live in the US)

I would argue that it is pretty hard to do anything nowadays without a job or two.

I'm getting PlayStation All-Stars, LittleBigPlanet Karting and Far Cry 3 for sure. They left off some of the Vita games I'm getting, Ragnarok Odyssey Mercenary Edition, Persona 4: The Golden and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
