Track your gaming expenditure for the whole of 2017

I have a novel idea. Those of us brave enough to do so should track every penny we spend on gaming for the whole year, right here in this thread. Keep editing your original post with your latest purchases and a running total, then come the end of the year we can all goggle at just how much money we've ploughed into being stilted adolescent manbabies!

Every bit of hardware, every game, every subscription, every bit of dlc, every conceivable penny that you've outlayed on our hobby. Do you have the cojones?

The good news: I'm actually going to try and do this without deleting the record in shame (I blame the PSVR purchase, although I did use savings from 2015 for it)

 

The bad news: I've already got the expensive TYH Edition Persona 5 pre-ordered... I don't think I'll actually keep this pre-order, but often with these things I only end up wanting them when it's too late.

 

Jan 18 update: already opted to process a cancellation at Zavvi in favour of getting the Steelbook from Amazon; blame a combination of common sense and the mixed customer reviews at Zavvi

I think I only list my own (and my son's in the case of FIFA) gaming acquisitions, not stuff I've gifted.

 

I don't include individual titles gained under EA Access, but do list PS+ and Games with Gold titles.

I tend not to include gifts in the expenditure - if I'm measuring what I spend on my own leisure time, other people's games (which I may have bought for them as gifts) don't really come into that. If people have bought games for me as gifts, I'll record that as £0 of expenditure and comment that it's been received as a gift. :)

Assumed that was the case. Not sure how it all works but I wasn't on my card this one as I didn't have it at the time. Was though Amazon Germany when someone on here put up the link on about the second day.

I did mention this as a joke because my cousins card in fact expires in sept yet the dispatch is due early October according to an email I received. I'll have him check his account. Might be worth trying to order from elsewhere if another source comes through and get him to cancel his order of it means paying the proper price.
