I feel largely the same way. Most games I'll wait and buy at half the price. I'm a patient guy. And I get to play more great games by buying them cheaper. If I have the option to buy three games for $60 or one game for $60, most times it's a pretty easy choice. That said, there are exceptions.
I will be buying Halo 4 on day one, and part of the reason is that so much of the fun of the Halo series is tied into the community experience. All of my friends will be buying it on day one and playing through the campaign in co-op. If I decide to go the cheap-ass route I save some money, sure, but I miss out on that shared experience because 6 months from now there's a decent possibility they'll have moved on to something else. I want to experience Halo 4 along with them.
I also bought Mass Effect 3 on day one. I could have gone without doing that, but I love the series enough and enjoyed the game enough that I really don't have any regrets about it. Same goes for Halo Reach. Enjoyed and still play it to this day from time to time, so I've got my money's worth.
Every other 360 game I own I bought used.
