One great thing about console games is that your purchasing hardware. You can resell this hardware or trade it online through websites like goozex.com. Once you buy a game from the App store, its yours, forever. Once youve played it and beat it, you're out the initial investment. So if you buy a $60 xbox game. Put your 30hours into it. You can trade it for a game of the same value. That is another reason why its worth it to still buy console games.
