Bright Hub writes: "A gaming system is a significant investment. Once you've saved enough to cover the cost of the system itself, you are forced to contend with expenses like additional controllers, headsets, subscription fees, component cables, and so on. How, then, is the gamer on a budget expected to be able to actually buy decent games to play on their shiny new system? New games usually run somewhere around 60 bucks, leaving even the most monetarily well-endowed gamers with only enough leftover cash to purchase one or two.
Fortunately, with both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 life cycles in full swing, there are quite a few excellent older games that can be purchased for less than 20 dollars. A value-conscious gamer could purchase one or two new games with his hard-earned money, or take my advice and purchase all five of these great games, and probably save cash in the process."
