Gamefly Beginning to Look a lot Like Blockbuster

When Loot Ninja first heard of a video game rental service with no late fees, no mailing fee, and a virtually unlimited stock, we jumped all over it. To be honest, we were one of the first people to sign up for it. We are well within the Level 3 rewards and been there for a few years now. Gamefly was a godsend in the current generations(PS2, Xbox) because there was such a huge stockpiling of games past, present, and future that "out of stock" was almost never seen. Now that Gamefly has become more popular with the huge growth of the gaming industry, they have tried to keep up, but so far have done almost a sub par job.

This is one of the reasons I cancelled Gamefly for the time being. There's a ton of great games coming out this Holiday, but the chances of me getting any of them around release are slim. I cancelled and will rejoin in a few months once there's a better stock of games I'll want to play.

No point in my paying $20 a month when there's nothing I'll be able to get for a couple months.

I am ready to take a break from it, but you lose all the rewards. They are not that great, but still I earned them.

drunkpandas4069d ago

Yeah I was only at Level 1, and I hadn't bought anything either. So I wasn't too concerned with losing that.

All you have to do is make sure you have an empty slot so when the game arrives for new release it comes right away. I have bioshock, madden, modo 07, and two worlds out right now for 40 $$. I sent back two worlds cause it sucks and now im waitin for airborne and stranglehold, and ive never not gotten a new release. ill get halo 3, ornage pack, mass effect, and gta 4 when it comes out. gamefly is the sh*t, and anyone who buys a game is an idiot.

i dont see why your complaining I just have a long list of stuff i want to rent. If i do not get a game the day it comes out its no big deal.

You are spending 500 dollars a year to rent video games. You really shouldn't be calling people idiots.

@ Ardy:

I am not losing sleep over not getting a game. I just don't like to see money wasted.
