It is your right to wait as long as you want before purchasing a title but your estimation of when games drop in price is way off. First of all the price drops vary game to game based on how well its sales are doing which are often dictated by how good a game is. Since Dragon Quest was reviewed very well and is a AAA game it is unlikely to go to 50% in the first six month. On average most games only drop about 25-30% in the first six months. Between six to twelve months the game may drop to the 50% point.TorontoGamerMan wrote: ↑ No. But when you have a backlog that includes most of RDR2, Spyro, AC Odyssey, etc....there's no immediate need to rush out and get it.
And honestly, it's been 50 at many places for over a month. So while 50 isn't terrible, it's hardly a great price at this stage of its release life.
Will buy when it goes 40 or cheaper. I'm sure that's bound to happen fairly soon.
The only time games drop that fast is if their sales are poor and the game is poorly reviewed. Wait until it eventually drops but calibrate your expectations. These developers spend years of their life making these games, they don't owe you anything in terms of value over time. You buy the game at a certain price point when the value is right for you. To say "its hardly a great price at this stage of its release life" is utter bs both because those estimates are wrong and because it makes it sound like the games value is not proportionate to its price.
