I wish Direct2Drive also supported consoles.

I subscribe to GameFly.. not really that big a fan of the service as it takes them FOREVER to send me something new. If I mail something back to them on a Monday, I'll be LUCKY if I get something else from them my mid-week the NEXT week, where as with Netflix I can mail something out on Monday and have something new by Thursday. I wish Netflix rented video games. Unfortunately, GameFly is my only game renting option other than Blockbuster, which has a lousy selection.

i think i will try Blockbuster after this month of my Gamefly runs out. Blockbuster now has games and movies at a cheaper price than having Netflix and Gamefly combo.

I used GameFly as well, the trial. Wasn't very impressed with the delivery time on the games.

But I know GameFly just recently won a lawsuit that showed the USPS was discriminating against GameFly packages. They were withholding delivery to ensure it took longer for the games to get to customers.

Maybe we will see an increase in delivery speed after the lawsuit is all wrapped up and the discrimination stops.

This acquisition doesn't seem so bad, maybe they'll figure out a way to rent pc games.
