Most games you’ve probably heard of were created by big, multi-million dollar studios like Nintendo, EA, or Activision. However, some of the most worthwhile games are made by small, independent studios.
Before the current generation of consoles, when you bought a video game, the game you bought was the game you had, forever and ever. Today, though, the game you buy is just a shell of what it can become down the line.
Sony introduced their first video game console, the PlayStation, in 1995. They followed this up in 2000 with the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3 in 2006. The PlayStation 4, which will be released near the end of this year, was announced in New York last week.
Video games are expensive. Brand new console games routinely cost $60, which can add up very quickly. This problem isn’t without a solution, though, and I’ve come up with a few ways to save without ever running out of games to play.
