    How much do you usually spend on games and apps monthly. I'm about $25-$50 USD monthly depending how good the month is with releases and as long as everything's good with my bank account.

    I use to spend between $30 and $50 monthly, but that has gone way... WAY down over the last couple years. Now, I hardly even buy games. I've got such a full backlog that I can almost always just browse the AppStore and find something that I have but have never played, or enjoyed but deleted before I was done with it... Last month I think I spent $5 and the month before that I don't think I bought anything. I've had the same $10 (well, after last month, now $5) on my account for months.

    But there are quite a few games that I want when I'm done playing what I've already bought, and can see myself going back up to $50 a month by mid-next year.

    Yeah I think my worst month was right after upgrading from a 2nd gen to a 4th gen... Pur bank account dropped down $125. I wound up having to get my cable shut off the month after that to make up for it... I had to set limits after... =oP

    Up until 2-3 months ago my spending was averaging at £30 a month for AppStore cards.

    Then I bought a PS Vita and since then I've barely spent £3-4 on the AppStore as there's little that appeals to me, no decent rpgs for months and the same old freemium garbage that keeps appearing, so my ipad is now really only being used for browsing. (Until another decent rpg hits it... I won't hold my breath)

    It has dropped a lot the last couple of years from an average of 30 -50 bucks a week, now its more like 50 bucks per month I think and that includes the odd purchase from my wife of coins for slot games.

    If I count all my gaming collecting habits though its something in the vicinity of 250 bucks per month or more but Im sure thats going to change in 7 months when my first baby gets here so im getting ready to say goodbye to excessive game hoarding.

    Once I started buying games the number went way down.. Before I would buy music production apps.. A good synth could cost you 20 to 30 bucks and many include IAPs for sound packs.. I've bought DAWs for 50 bucks (cubasis and Auria).. Once I started buying games the numbers went from 50-100 bucks a month down to 15-20 bucks.. It's pretty crazy the amount of money I've spent in the App Store :) :)

    Probably close to £1. I constantly have more games than I have time to play so I never see a reason to spend any more.
