View Full Version : Gamefly

Is anyone using this service? Its essentially Netflix for video games. They do all consoles, including PSP and UMD movies for the PSP. I've been using it just this month and its pretty cool. It works just like Netflix is pretty much every sense. There is one cool difference. The post office notifies the Gamefly people once they receive the disc, and then Gamefly will send out your next game before they actually get the previous game back in their hands.
Anyways, just curious.

Yep, I use it. It's pretty much the only way I buy games now. Nice that they also started the rewards program too.

I tend to take my time with games until moving on to the next, so I don't think I would use this service to my advantage.

Well, when you consider the preplayed 360 games are only $29-39 shipped, it's worth it just for buying games. It seems there always a few other games you wouldn't mind playing but don't want to buy either, so they make good renters.

Anyone else having issues with the fast return feature? Half the time it never happens for me. The other half, I see that the fast return process is initiated, but then they drop it and finally ship my next game only once the first one arrives in their hands. Its about a full week turnout for me. Kinda sucks.

Same here. It's my main complaint about Gamefly.
They have low used prices and their games are always like new though.
I have about 2 days turnaround with Netflix. If they'll carry games too, I might drop GF.
I also tried www.gameznflix.com . I had a bad experience. One PSP game was broken in pieces. Games were sometimes in poor condition. Turnaround about a week. They carry both games and DVD and their prices are low. Too bad the service sucks!

Last turnaround took eight days.

The turnaround for my games usually take about 5 days which isn't too bad. Luckily I have about 12 other games to keep me busy.

I just started using it as I got an Xbox 360 for my birthday but I hold on to the games for a long time as I don't really play all that often so not sure I will keep it.

I just signed on for gamesnflix. We'll see how it works out. Much better price than gamefly, and the clincher for me is they have a distribution center in Seattle. Not LA like gamefly.

I signed up despite my better judgement in the above post. Is anyone still using it, and if so, how is it? If not, what's the better option?
I noticed their ad on a Netflix envelope and decided just to give it a shot.

I am still using it. There currently is no better option.
