So how much do you think your going to spend on gaming in 2017

Are you going to enter the next generation with a PS4 (pro) / Xbox One (two) or Nintendo's new Switch console ?

Are there big games you are going to grab on day 1 - or will you wait for the magic £20 mark ?

Post your estimate here and try and keep track of just how much money you are throwing away when instead you could be outside !

I think I'll either spend a little or a lot, with no middle ground; the main factor being VR. It's something I want to get into, but it's a cost I can't justify right now, so if I can get myself more financially stable, I might treat myself to a new PC and VR setup, or just get a PS4 and VR for that instead.

If none of that happens, I'll just buy the usual cheap Steam stuff instead. Speaking of which -

Yes in a similar fashion to you devilman I think it'll be a big spend or a little spend, the delineating factor in my case being buying a new PC or not buying a new PC.

Without a new PC I'm saying £400-500, with a new PC it's going to be £2500+ as the PC alone will be a couple of grand.

As last year I can't see a console purchase happening, even with the more powerful iterations of the PS4/XBone coming on stream, and I don't like VR at all so that won't be happening.

I don't think a new PC is a dead cert at all, or indeed even probable, as such I'm going to vote for £400-£600. (Last year I went for £300-£400 and that was a little on the low side as I ended up at £510.)

I'll update the thread this year too.

You should come to the cottage and see if you feel it's worth the outlay.

I think VR is a 'when' not an 'if' for me. Just a case of affording it and deciding which one to get. Good attempt to get me to the cottage though ;)

Not convinced by what's been revealed so far, but if it gets worthwhile exclusive games I'd certainly consider it.

Definitely a far more interesting proposition than any past, present or future iterations of PS4 or XBone though.

1000-1200 is what I've gone for. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying a Switch this year and tons of other stuff too but hopefully my Ebaying will cover all these costs.

Probably £50 less than last year, as I won't get NMS

I'm going to vote £1-50 this year again, even though I rarely spend anything because of vouchers.

However, I'm going to try a few of the £3.99 style puzzle games this year on iOS, such as Day Of The Tentacle, and this might fall into that range.

It was the deciding which one to get that I was thinking of. Of course I say that without knowing how much experience you have of either.

Probably a lot less than last year when I bought a PS VR, but I might be tempted by a PS Pro or posh XBone.
Anyway, <10> Homefront 2

<4.68> The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ DLC

This was supposed to be available a few hours ago but was delayed so I might not get much chance to play it tonight. On the plus side, I got a bit of a discount because I already owned the original Afterbirth.

Ooooh do you have lightguns and a proper telly?

Confidential Mission and House Of The Dead 2 are fantastic games for the Dreamcast, especially with two players.

Also the dialogue in Confidential Mission is very amusing, and not intentionally so. Me and a mate used to be able to recite it all by rote.

I haven't got a proper telly set up at the moment but there's one in my mom and dads loft which I have my eye on.

I miss house of the dead 2 loads.

I think I'll probably spend about 300quid. Red dead is a definite purchase for me, probably gonna get some BF1 DLC and I'll probably drunkenly order some games at some point.
