How Does Online Game Rental Work? Gamefly Review

Gamefly offers Rentals for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita, 3DS, and even Blu Ray movies. It has a complete library with all the latest games on all new platforms for example such selections as You can even pre-order upcoming games as they are announced. Here’s how it works.

Gamefly revolves around your “GameQ” which allows you to queue up games to be sent to your home as they become available. On average it takes about 3 days to receive or return games from gamefly depending on how far away the distribution center is from your home. Games are generally in good condition and are gauranteed to work.

If you have any issues customer support is very available to help you with your rental. You also have the option to keep the game for a discounted price. They will mail you the manual and cover for the game after purchase. Your game comes in an envelope with a slim cardboard sleeve for protection.

It also includes a paid self addressed return envelope. There is a 30 day free trial that allows you to start off your rental membership. Then there’s the 1 Game Plan which runs at $15.95 per month.

Finally, there’s the 2 Game plan for $22.95 per month. The 2 Game plan offers the best value. This way you have less down time. You can be playing one game while the other game is potentially in transit.

The only major downside is that it can be difficult to get new games shortly after release. On release day, availability of new top games can be very low and you may end up not receiving the game for a few weeks. I find gamefly works best for games that are at least a month old.

I have been a member for a few months now, and I have yet to run into any issues with the condition of the discs, the timeliness of the delivery, or any problems with site functionality. If you are the type who will only play games for a week or two before selling or discarding them, I highly recommend that you run the free trial and see if it’s right for you. For $22.95 on the 2 game plan, there’s a lot of value and it can give you a chance to stay on top of games without shelling out $60 plus dollars every time there’s a new release.
