Gameflys Domination over the Online Video Game Industry

Jan 24, 2008
GameFly is an online service that allows you to rent video games through the mail, similar to what NetFlix does with movies. For a low monthly fee, you can choose to have either one or two games out at once, depending on your chosen plan. Once you have maintained your account in good standing for a specified amount of time, you can opt to upgrade to plans allowing three or four titles at once. We've been using this service for over three years, keeping our entire family in games for several different gaming consoles. We have found two games at a time to be adequate for us, even though we have several gamers in the family.

The Online video game rental service offers over 5,000 titles covering all the current gaming systems from Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Older systems like the Nintendo 64 are not included. When we signed up, we were given access to our own personal GameQ, a place to keep track of up to 50 titles of games we can't wait to get our hands on. The variety has served us well... we have a collection of different consoles, and everyone likes a different type of game. None of us has had any trouble selecting our favorites, whether it be a role-playing game, a first-person shooter, sports or a fighting game.

It's a great deal if you like to play and test out a variety of games and for all the hardcore gamers. At our house, someone is always playing something; consequently we rent a lot of games every month. If a game proves particularly challenging, we can keep it until we beat it. If it turns out to be too easy, it can go back in a day or two to be replaced by the next game we can't live without.

Turnaround is pretty fast... it takes approximately five days from putting our finished game in our mailbox until we receive the new one. New titles are available almost immediately... we've only had to wait occasionally when demand was unusually high. For those rare games we can't live without, we are able to go to our GameQ and click on the "Keep It" button by the title we want to keep. Members are offered a discounted price, and we also earn GameFly Rewards from our rentals, which can take a few more dollars off the price.

Signing up is simple and Gamefly even offers a Free trial so gamers can test out there service. They have added new game systems as they come on the market and considering how hot the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 are it's nice to have a vast selection and the newest games. , and they now have two shipping hubs... one on the east coast and one on the west.

Overall, GameFly is highly recommended because of it's vast selection of games to choose from and savings over using the local video game store.
