This is why buying video games on credit is a bad idea

South African gamers should avoid buying video games on credit or risk paying exorbitant amounts for their purchases over the long term.

While gaming has never been an inexpensive hobby, the current prices of AAA titles at launch have put them out of reach for many, having surpassed the R1,000 mark in recent years.

If you want these things you have to save for them.

Then buy them on your credit card, pay the minimum monthly, and put the money you saved into Bitcoin.
