    Question

    Good question. I've asked in the chat, but everyone said they hadn't tried them. I'll be watching the responses.

    Gamefly is great. Ive been using them for awhile now. I have also tried redoctane and gamefly is so much better. I dont do blockbuster because they are too expensive in the long run and they hardly ever have any good games available.

    Anyway about gamefly....turnaround on shipping is about 3-4 days each for me and im on the east coast. They get new releases within a couple days. Pretty much all games are available so no long wait times.(red octane never had games available) Games are in great condition with hardly any scratches. They sell their games for great prices used so if you rented a new release and youre the first one to rent it then you can usually end up getting a new game for $10-$15 off with a click of the mouse button. Website is designed great. They offer a 1 game, 2 game and even 3 game a month deal for good prices. Great email communication for when they recieve and send out games.

    If you have anymore questions about gamefly I will be happy to answer.

    I've always been a little skeptical about on-line renting services...though, I've never done it. I'm not a big renter as is since I don't like to shove in games in my XBox from someone that previously owned it.

    I mean, who knows if some slimy snotted punk kid sneezed all over the game and if my XBox will suffer from bugars?!?!

    When i cancelled my redoctane account I waited till they had their games back before i cancelled to avoid something like that just in case. Im not sure if they did it on purpose or not but I was also very skeptical of online game renting sites but I can honestly say Im happy with them. Renting games at blockbuster was anywhere from $4-$6 a game for me and Im on a 2 day rental plan at gamefly for $21.95. So basically I can get about 8 games a month and no late fees if I decide to keep one a bit longer and only send one back. Its worth it in my financial situation.

    Thats only like the 2nd bad review out of like 25 that I have heard. Maybe I lucked out?

    I used gamefly for a couple of months last year. I liked it a lot. The blockbuster in my town has a crappy selection of Xbox games. They only get like 4 copies of new games. You can never find them. Gamefly has a lot of availability. It is only worth it if you rent a lot of games. The turnaround on shipping is pretty good. If you are going to use and online rental site this is the one I would use. I researched a bunch of them and this was the best deal.
