Who's in and what will your budget be?

Looks like I will end in the plus this year and as I will not be buying many games in 2015 on day of release I am reducing my limit to £400 :dread:

I'll have a go. It will be a good way to track what I spend. I'll budget £700.

I'm in again. Although I always give up counting around October. It just starts making me depressed!

If I cave in and buy a new 3DS and Majora's Mask then my budget could be scuppered by April! :lol:

Since I'm single now so my target will be:

*drum roll*

£4,000.

Yes, that's right Bitches. £4,000! I'm going to get the X Box One, Wii U (since the ex kept my wii u saying that I don't deserve it as I don't play it much!) and the new model of 3DS next year. 8-)

Wedgie... is your budget *really* 4K? :shock: . I have to cut back a lot on my gaming spend next year.

I'll be trying my hardest not to buy any new hardware. I'll give myself a £50 per month budget, so £600 for the year.

Yeah, really.

I'm single so not every money I have is controlled by my ex. It could be wishful thinking though, as real life sinks in. Most of the time I will be living on my own so I'm trying to avoid boredom.

The main part of the budget is dedicated to new consoles, especially:

The new model of 3DS (the one with all those extra buttons/stick)
X Box One with Kinect.
A Wii U.

That's easily roughly £800-900 gone. Also there's a matter of a brand new apple computer (still not decided on what model to get though.) and the potential replacement for the 360.

Perfect justification; it'd be good to see you drive onto the grid for a GRcadian Kart night!

Changed my mind. I'm fairly certain that I will get a new 3DS and Majora's Mask so I'm going to budget £900 for the year.
