Paul Munn of Aeropause noticed that Gamefly is slowly testing out a program that will allow players to trade-in used games. While it sounds like a good idea in theory, Paul looks at the fine print and found some issues.
renting games is so last generation
Yeah, the whole "try before you buy" concept is so passe
So, lets say 6 games are being released in December. You would rather pay ~$360 to buy those games than pay $20 to rent them.
If by "renting games is so last generation" you mean renting games at locations like Blockbuster then I do agree.
I was actually stupid enough to buy King Kong for the 360 when it launch. I had never played it and it looks pretty cool. I ended up spending $60 on a piece of sh|t game. Thanks to GameFly I never have to make a mistake like that again.
EVERY gamer should get GameFly.
King Kong wasn't that bad. I thought that and Condemned were good launch games.
GameFly owns, I hope they go with this. :)
Gameznflix offers members to trade-in games, but I haven't heard any kind of feedback about if it works or not.
I think they will be adding this service to their site. I'm in the beta program but have no use for it since I don't purchase games anymore. I've heard good things about it though.
GamezNflix is horrible. I have a Netflix account and a GameFly account. I decided to cancel those and just get one account for both games and movies. I used GamezNflix and it was the biggest mistake of my life. Horrible, horrible service.
