I'll probably be tracking my spends over on rllmuk again, but I might drop in for irregular updates or something. Last year I spent about £96 and made half of that back at CEX, but that was a huge improvement over 2012, so I'll probably use my frugal nature last year as an excuse to get a new console... :/

Spends on rllmuk are up to about £193 now. Still no new console :P although I can see myself getting some kind of PlayStation-shaped box before the year's over. About £100 is credit for XBL or PSN, and purchased stuff has included OlliOlli, TxK, EDF, Demon Gaze, Mind Zero, Entwined and the Ultra SF4 update. Oh, and the total also includes my Freedom Wars pre-order. VIDEOGAMES.

Um, you can add two or three quid onto my last total thanks to Vib-Ribbon and that's about it. I actually have a few gift vouchers at present so hopefully my total won't move much until later this year when (if) I get a new console...

Oh boy. Final spends for the year come to around £550. That's not my worst year-end total, but even so...

I don't think there were a lot of mini purchases that make up the total, just a bunch of full price stuff. Even before you get to the £350 PS4, there was £20 for OlliOlli and TxK, £20 for EDF, £30 for Demon Gaze, about £25 for Mind Zero, the new SF4 also required a new Live sub and so that was around £65, Freedom Wars was another £25... it all mounts up.

Next year I'll go back to spending less and probably get a PS+ sub to help with that. There are some awesome games releasing in 2015 that I'll be picking up on day one, but hopefully it won't be as crazy as this year has been.

Wow, thats some forensic spending records there Qazi.


I have no records but I can safely say I've easily hit the £500 mark. I ended up buying quite a few games that I haven't even played, just stuck £40 on Elite Dangerous yesterday aswell, but I got the money for that from Christmas presents. Also bought a 2DS and games for that, which I haven't played near enough.


I think next year will see me spending less if I can avoid the winking and playful gaze of the PS4.

I made my first pre-order of 2015 courtesy of Bloodborne for PS4. I know that delays have made the release date kind of unpredictable but the media shown so far, combined with my own experience at EGX, has left me convinced that I should pick it up. Along with the postage and everything it comes to around £40something...


Aside from that, I haven't really made any gaming purchases yet this year. Having trialled PS+ for a short while I think I'll probably pick up a twelve month sub for that sometime in the near future, and there are some other games I have an eye on. :)

Doing this on rllmuk again for 2017 - I squeezed in the SFV second season pass at the end of last year so I'll have some content to enjoy over the next few months. Aside from that I've ordered the ridiculous TYH edition Persona 5 - only because I know I'll regret not doing so once it actually gets released - and I'll probably pick up Nier Automata in March...
