Gamefly Sticks it to Gamestop in Hilarious New Ad

Gamefly's latest ad is a stroke of Genius. Speaking to anyone who has ever traded a game into Gamestop, or well, stepped into a Gamestop, the spot features disgruntled customers going into rages after getting insulting offers for their games. (GameFly, GameStop, Industry)

Gamefly is a sweet deal. Try it out for cheap, and you can even buy it for like 15% off or something. I mean I rented Tiger Woods recently and could then just "keep it" for $45 but I believe that is still without an actual case or booklet/manual. Not sure on that part.

Still, a funny commercial nonetheless.

Ahh sweet good info. Bubbles and thanks.

And I am assuming they just go to the next game on your gameQ...right?

Dang! THEY got $9?!

That's what I was thinking when I watched it "$9?! I've never seen them offer that much for a game!" Maybe they were trying to trade in a stack of games?

wow...hilarious and first thing i thought was 9 dollars?...whoa they must be trading in a game that JUST released to be getting that much at gamestop..

I got $25 for Saints Row The Third back in March. Still felt like I didn't get enough.
RXL  +   1024d ago
they bought it off you for 25 they go right around and stick the price of 56 bucks on it..and just doubled their money..

loan sharks have a hard time seeing that profit increase

That is pretty funny. I never trade in any games to Gamestop, I also hate how when I buy a "new" game from them, its often opened already.
DrRobotnik  +   1025d ago
So true. I have a friend that is an assistant manager at Gamestop. He actually told that when new games come in, they open them up, take them home to play. And when they're done they reseal the used game with the wrapping plastic and a heat gun. I never bought games from them since.

same thing my friend told me lol..(also works at gamestop)

he says they get to "rent" the new games..

what a crock of poop
