LoveFilm confirm they are No longer offering Game Rentals

Amazon-owned LoveFilm have confirmed that they will no longer be offering game rentals.
Last week Gamebrit reported that the rental and streaming company may be putting an end to their games-by-post service. Now, an email received by Gamebrit confirms the immediate change.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well is this how it's going to be.... Microsoft removes drm so you all can rent games... However pays rental companies to stop renting so you can't rent?

Where does it say that MS are paying Amazon to stop game rentals??

Are you just trying cause trouble for everyone?

Your obviously a bit too trusting

No, I just don't put the blame on a company for another companies decisions.

Why would they only pay off Amazon and not Gamefly or Redbox? Why would they pay Amazon to stop lending games out for multiple platforms?

I don't think MS can just pay off a company to not lend out PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS games.

Don't be silly. Comments like that don't generate agree clicks because the comment is stupid.

I have to say, i'm STRONGLY thinking of cancelling my account now.

If this is how it is, i'll just buy second hand ps4 games when they come out and are cheap as shit, no way will i buy brand new games for £40 that are just single player games.

Alot of my friends ONLY buy brand new games that have a good multiplayer with them.

Fucks me off how everything now a day's is about money, this never was the case, why have they suddenly stopped this?, because of greedy fucking publishers ... pathetic!

This is unfortunate for the UK, I hope Gamefly here in the states isn't the next to go, I need my rental services!
