    So I was wondering if you guys purchase your 3DS games new or used. The next game I am waiting to purchase is Kingdom Hearts 3DS which is starting at $40, so I was wondering if its better to wait until I can buy a cheaper used one or just buy it new.

    I buy most of my games used unless there's pre-order bonus.

    depends on the price if a used game is 20$ and a brand new one is 40$ i will most likely get the used one. if its only like a 5$ difference ill buy a new one.

    I have bought MK7, Mario 3D land, Zelda OOT 3D & Oregon Trail new when I was in the States, but I bought Ridge Racer second hand off ebay for about $15. Depends how good of a deal I get the game for as to whether I will buy it new or used. $15-$20 sure beats $40+

    Out of 7 3DS games, I have bought them all new at a store. 3DS games are a maker or a breaker for me. I've never really found a game yet where I'd rather wait to buy it at a discount.

    All of the games I own are new, mainly because I get them either at release, or soon after. Half have been bought online. I am eyeing some now that have been out for a bit, but I may go used for those.

    I get them new, mostly because of the club nintendo points.
    They include them with ALL titles now, I think? Seems to be the case, titles like Crush 3D or Puzzle Bobble Universe never would have included them before.

    I like getting my games as soon as they're out, so I always preorder a new one.
    Plus, you know, preorder bonuses.

    The games I plan on getting upon release for immediate fun, new.

    Any games that don't really care about or I can wait a while to play, used.

    I get more of my games used than new, really. I have a limited budget, and in most cases the games I get are in great condition.

    For now I have bought my 3DS games new because of the almost full rebate that the store gave me after buying my system but after that money is over I will consider looking at used games from GameFly which are guaranteed to be in like new condition and will even have an unused Club Nintendo code intact.

    Exactly. I have not bought any 3DS games yet.
    I have a 3DS with no games.

    Ah, of course, my bad. I just jumped to an assumption that you were pirating 3DS games. Haha
