Comments (0) | Views (887)


Anyone who's interested in gaming will have noticed something about the activity - it can be very expensive indeed if you want to be at its very forefront. Buying the latest consoles, the newest games and all the other kit like gaming chairs, noise cancelling headphones and ultra-HD screens is way beyond the budget of most gamers.

Sure, all those e-sports millionaires might be able to splash out on top of the range equipment. But, for the rest of us we need to cut our coats according to our cloth.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get great value offers that will provide a very respectable level of gaming that won't break the bank.

Check out the best value tech

The biggest initial outlay that any gamer faces is always going to be the PC or the console to play the games on.

If you're 100% committed to getting your hands on a PS5 or an Xbox X you're going to be paying top dollar for them. But it will pay to shop around among online and even offline retailers. Look out for offers that also come with a couple of games thrown in - especially if they're big names like EA Sports' FC 24.

If you're not in the market for a new console then pre-owned ones could be the way to go. One thing to be wary of is the number of games that older consoles can play. There may be connectivity issues too as, going back to the PS2 era, they don't tend to have HDMI sockets.

So if you're looking for an older console that will still do most of what you need then the Xbox 360 Slim will hit that sweet spot of affordability and performance.

If PC gaming is more up your street than you'll find that there always some great deals available both on new and refurbished units. Look for models which have a new versions soon to be launched. You'll find that these are at clearance prices as retailers are keen to free up warehouse space for their replacements.

Savings, discounts and offers

Even the briefest Google search will deliver a whole range of gaming savings, discounts and offers on everything you could possibly want to buy.

There are plenty of sites that have even done the searching for you. Then it's just a question of clicking straight through to the retailer to claim the savings. Others just give you the current list of discount codes to use. Simply input these when you go to pay for your online purchases and the savings will be automatically applied.

An increasingly popular kind of gaming is in online casinos - and these rely heavily on giving welcome bonuses and discounts to attract new players. These include the chance to double your initial stake money up to a set limit and some even offer no-deposit options to get players to sign up, BonusFinder has written about them, listing their top bonuses available.

Another very popular way that online casinos welcome new players is through the offer of a set number of free spins on their equivalent of video games - online slots. In this case it's literally like receiving free money.

Best value on games

When it comes to buying the games that you want to play the good news is that these are available quite cheaply from a wide number of sources.

While you're always going to be paying top prices for new releases, second hand copies tend to come on the market quite quickly. The added bonus for buying used disks is that you'll also be in a position to sell them on yourself once you've completed every mission and reached the end of the game.

There are also certain to be lots of older games that simply passed you by at the time. So check out some game reviews to find the best of these - and then search them out at prices that are almost giving them away.

Better still, there are plenty of free games out there to enjoy. Every week the Epic Games store releases a number of free games and, if you can afford the monthly subscription to PS Plus or the Xbox Live Gold services, these also include a few free games within the price.

It's also well worth checking out your local library. Many of them have a stock of games that you can borrow for free.

So, as you can see, there are plenty of options for gamers on a limited budget. And the fact that you've been searching out the best deals at the best prices can only make playing the games themselves that little bit more enjoyable.
