When a new game comes out and you really want it, but don't have enough money to buy it, that can be really frustrating. Don't worry though, there are other ways of getting your hands on new releases as soon as possible. Although some ideas are better than others, they will all result to you getting your new game.
Online Game Mail Services
Websites like Gamefly.com will allow you to have games sent to you through the mail for a monthly fee. This is the best way to get your hands on any games. Although it does cost a low monthly fee, it is much cheaper than paying full price for a brand new game. With their multiple subscription packages, you can have multiple games out at a time without having a due back by date so you can fully experience everything the games have to offer. There are other similar services, but Gamefly is the most reputable. They send out the new releases the day it comes out so you will receive it a couple days later.
Sell Your Unused CDs, DVDs, and Games
If you have a lot of these just lying around collecting dust, then why not sell them for a game you really do enjoy and would use? Most people think by holding on to these items they might use them again, but with all the new entertainment that comes out on a regular basis, why go back to old stuff? There are sites like MusicMagpie that can really make selling your old disks easy. They just make you put in the bar codes for each, then send you a shipping label. Once they receive the items, you get your money, that simple. Then you can go buy the game you want!
Rent the Game From a Local Store
This might be an older way to do things, but it is very effective. If you want to play a game right away, then go rent it. This might end up being more expensive if you end up keeping it longer than the due date, but overall will get you your game as soon as possible. This is a great option if you are just waiting for your next payday to buy the game or if it's just a game you wanted to play for a short period of time. You can also see if the store has extended rent monthly subscriptions that will allow you to keep a game as long as you want without and past due fees. Usually the subscriptions might be a little more expensive than other methods, but you will have access to any games whenever you want.
These are just a few ideas to help you get the new release titles you want, right away. A lot of the time, buying a new title might not be worth it, so renting it or selling your other unused stuff will be your best bet.
