It looks like Netflix, except they only rent console games.

I signed up for the free trial. Anyone here use them?? Does it work well?? I never used Netflix, not sure I will like waiting for games to show up.

But the local video store in town has a really poor selection of Xbox games, and they dont get new releases hardly ever. They have only about 20 titles in all. I dont really want to drive all the way to the nearest blockbuster which is in the next town, so maybe GameFly will work out.

Jeff,

I tried NetFlix for a while and found it to be a really good service. It only took a few days for an in stock movie to get to me once I requested it. I had to cancle Netflix though because as a college student I have enough bills already, but it was a good service that I will go back to in the future. As far as the game service, it sounds like a great idea. Couldn't hurt to give it a shot!

I signed up for the free trial too, my first games should be here tomorrow. I guess we'll see how it goes.

From their "Help" pages:

We are located in California and ship out games from our warehouse 6 days a week via first class US mail. Ship times are 2-4 business days for the entire US.
Sucks for me, as I am on the East Coast. If it takes the full 4 days to get here, I may not continue past the 10-day free trial.

I have been using GameFly since January. I am very pleased with their service. It takes 1 week from the time I put a game in the mailbox till I receive the next one.
The return address is in Los Angles, so I would assume that they also ship from there. You can purchase some games for a used price, meaning they don't sell games that still have a large demand (Halo, GTA:VC, etc.). Games usually sell for $34.99, I have seen a few for less. I have never had a problem with bad discs, shipping problems. I would and have recommended to friends.

Gamefly.com works for me too. I'm in Seattle and the turnaround time from me sending one to them and getting one back is 3-4 business days. Right now I have War of the Monsters and MVP Baseball 2003 for PS2 at home. I've rented a bunch of stinkers, but the good ones (Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank) have more than made up for them.

Recommended!

And Netflix is great too. What's even better is the 2 day turnaround! Their warehouse is in Tacoma. Woo hoo!

I've been a member of redoctane.com for quite a few years now. (Around three maybe?) I really like the concept, as it's much cheaper then buying new games. It's espically nice for playing through games that don't have a lot of replay value.

Same concept as Gamefly, although I believe they may be the originators. I've been pleased with their service, but it takes about 4-5 days for shipping between their location in Calfornia and my home in Minnesota.

If you don't like their service, here's a few others:

redoctane.com
gamefly.com
numbthumb.com
govojo.com
angelgamer.com
