Is game fly worth it I found some other sites like http://gameznflix.com/. Tell me what you think.

Minty
02-17-2006, 11:40 PM
not being in the US i wouldnt know, but from what i can tell if your west coast its awesome, if your east coast it takes 3 days for the post to get the disks to you, and 3 days for you to post them back

I hear many people talking about it, it's an easy way to complete easy 1000GP Games without paying $50

Minty
02-17-2006, 11:44 PM
yeah, im in the UK version. 2 games a month for 14 quid. almost twice the price of gamefly i think.

Nukeshell

I don't think there's something like that, back here in Holland :-\

ianc125
02-18-2006, 12:35 AM
I am currently using it and I think it is worth it if you do the 2 disks out at a time option cause while ones shipping you can finish the other then just switch

It's very very worth it, i love it.. I'm on the 3 game plan, so i always have a game from them here..

scoobydiesel
02-18-2006, 07:52 PM
well if you seen the other gamefly topics you know im a huge fan

its worth it, i get 4 games at a time so its great, but i also live on the west cost

Theres a Canadian version of gamefly. Sweet. Now I can sign up for it.

Is it in Canadian dollars the pricing?

theres a UK version as well, www.gamesfrenzy.co.uk (http://www.gamesfrenzy.co.uk). the websites poor, but the service is excellent. my mate got full auto and ridge racer the day before they were released ;D

quite expensive, but if the service is great i guess its worth it, arent games there more expensive than USA games?

Minty
02-21-2006, 01:19 AM
games over here vary from £40-50 new. which is like $70-85/90. so dont complain about your game prices!!

and it makes paying 9.99 or 14.99 for 2 games at a time very reasonable. and its 1/2 day shipping from them, and 1 day from you, so youll have a new game in 3 or 4 days

damn almost effin 90 for a game, how much was a premium.

Minty
02-21-2006, 01:24 AM
280 pounds, so about $500 dollars lol

cores were £210, about $380. and to buy a harddrive on ebay which is like the only place you can get one is £100, about $180

KillarPenguin
02-21-2006, 01:26 AM
Its $500 Canadian to buy a Premium System. And about $70 per game.

When I was in London last summer, it felt like everything was cheaper because a meal at Burger King was about 3 Pounds, and I didn't convert it to Canadian Dollars, so it felt really cheap to me.

I use gameznfliix..So far I'm really happy with it. its 10 bucks cheaper (Even their 3 out at a time plan is about 5 bucks cheaper then gamefly's 2 out) and they ship from 4 different areas. (Kentucky, Denver, Pa, Southern Cali)

ianc125
02-21-2006, 02:53 AM
do you get good service and delivery time with them because i think gameflys a little pricey and it sux being on east cost with their shipping

The last couple games I've returned to Gamefly they've been using the Fast Return thing (or I guess technically my post office is) and that cuts turn around time by about a third. Not too shabby as long as it stays this way. I think I'm going to give gamesnflix a one month trial though. If it IS faster and I can have 3 (360) games out for $5 less, holy shit.

I tried gamefly for a month...it took them too long to sned me my games. I live on the East Coast. I had a subscription to Gameznflix.com at the same time, and i would get games 3 times as fast from them. I cancelled my gamefly account and now I only have gameznflix, and I am very happy with them

I couldn't really tell ya. I just signed up not long ago...But within 2 days after I signed up. They shipped my #1 and #3 game. The guy who told me it was good has Full Auto on the way to him now also (Shipped sat I believe) Plus its cheaper and more warehouses.

Gamefly has been taking longer and longer with my games. So I signed up for Gameznflix as its cheaper for the 3 game plan then gameflys 2 game (by like 5 bucks no less). So I will keep gamefly til the end of the month and if gameznflix works out i'll cancel gamefly. ;D

scoobydiesel
02-24-2006, 09:28 AM
they are getting lots of memebers all of a sudden so maybe they need to order more games to keep up...i dunno, good luck to them, i hope they do better becuase that just means gamefly will kick it up to compete more, hopfully means games will be cheaper to buy(i mean 10 dollars cheaper and free shippin is cool from gamefly but they should go down 20 bucks thatd be swizzle)

I will let you know when I get them I switched to them from gamefly also
I made the account on the 21st
they shipped my first game on the 22nd i should have it tommorrow and ill let you know

g4m3r7ag
02-24-2006, 08:15 PM
yea you should have the game tomorrow ian, if your on the east coast, until gamefly gets a shipping center over here use gameznflix, but once gamefly gets one over here i will probably go back to them because their site is easier to browse and they have a better stock of games. but for the time being gameznflix is good for those on the east coast

ianc125
02-24-2006, 08:36 PM
yes their site is much better and they look more professional but the only thing stopping me from using them now is their location

scoobydiesel
02-25-2006, 03:00 AM
sicne i always get my games within 3days if it takes longer then 5 i send a shipping report problem, it tells ya not to do it until likej 2 weeks later but iv done ti anyways, they ahve never charged me for anything unless i bought a game or whatever.

thats for gamefly for people who randomly poped into the convo lol

SpideR NY
02-25-2006, 03:33 AM
yeah sent gamefly the shipping problem they are going to resend it out. Gameznflix I signed up with on the 22nd and got my first game today (25th) and should get one tomarrow and one probally on mon. They are a little short on 360 games, but for sure faster and cheaper then gamefly. One thing I noticed is that the disk was very scuffed up looking so hopefully it plays. But I will post again after I have gnf for a couple weeks. Gamefly disappointed me.

scoobydiesel
02-25-2006, 03:43 AM
Yeah i cant help you when stuff happens like that, iv jsut never had any problems and great shippin, the price is fine in my mind since i think the store(or jsut keep it) covers the rest sicne the games are usly 10 bucks or so cheaper, witch is sweet.

but im HOPING this can start a good rival for gamefly so they add even mroe stuff, cant ever lose then(ie liek madden vs 2k, them where good days)

ianc125
02-25-2006, 03:53 AM
i agree if it is a good rival maybe gamefly will start thinking about putting a distrobution point on the east coast that would probably pls alot of people

g4m3r7ag
02-25-2006, 03:57 AM
if they got a distribution center on the east coast i would switch back to them in a heart beat

ianc125
02-25-2006, 04:03 AM
yes i would to but for now im finishing of the month i paid for and i started a gameznflix account

so im going to end up with like 5 games at once lol
gamefly is better service the only thing bad about them is the location with all the money they spend
on comercials they should be able to afford another distro center

scoobydiesel
02-25-2006, 05:02 AM
Yeah they have been talkign about getting 2 more places one in like mid west or something and some by green bay, i dont totaly remember i emailed the about it and the guy rpelyed saying they where trying to open places, plus joystiuq has talked about it

with having commercails and so many adds in magazines and what not you think theyd get another place...i hope they do

ianc125
02-25-2006, 05:04 AM

scoobydiesel
02-25-2006, 05:32 AM
No i dont have a full time job i do get monthly payments, but dont want to go into detail.

I thinke veryone that has switched to gamesnflix should email gamefly tellign them they ahve moved on sicne they dont have an east cost place.

with everyone doing so it would kick start them to get one, or id hope so

thats why you make sure your the first one when renting i got PD0 the day they relased it/shiped so its brand new only thing is it doesnt have the stupid plastic lock thing(the ones you have to pill off) or of course the other plastic shrink wrap crap.

Yeah, I'm test driving GnF too right now. The way they do their free trial is so fucked up though. Limited selection AND it makes up a queue for you. I was like "I don't want to rent a fucking PS1 game". So I went straight to the payed plan. All the games I put in my queue were listed as 'short wait' and only 1 has shipped so far. It did ship the day after I started my account though so that's a good thing. The big question is how long it'll take to get here and once I send it back, how long will it take for them to recieve it.

I have to say, ever since Gamefly started shipping all my stuff with that Fast Return thing, it's cut the turn around in half. Now they ship the new game the day after I drop the old one in the mail.

Well, maybe it's because I complained a lot. I used their little system to report a game missing everytime it took longer than 4 days to get here, or longer than 5 for them to get it back. Then I bitched that if the are based in CA and I'm in NC, why do I have to pay tax (most stores don't charge tax yet unless they operate a B&M location in your state), then I complained that they didn't have east coast distribution centers. I guess after that they figured Fast Return was the way to shut me up because my last 4 games have been sent with Fast Return.

Yeah I wish you could select what ya want with that free trail. Sadly people would abuse it. Where do you live? I know they have a warehouse here in scranton, Pa (Sp) which is about 3-4 hours from my house. From the little time I've been with them my turn around is about 5 days. 2 days each way in the mail and a day to process my order. (I posted this before but they also have one in Ky, Denver and southern cali.)

Also all games say short wait. But twice now they shipped the #1 game on my list the same day they recieved the one I sent back. And I have yet to get anything that wasn't in my top 3.

I've been a Gamefly user since November 2002. I'm a big fan of it. Since I've started, they haven't raised the prices once. It's more cost-effective than buying 6 games a year (or 5 a year with the price of X360 games), and since I rarely hold onto games anyways, it's a good solution.

Well, my first GamesNFlix game shipped on Monday and it got here today. Whereas Gamefly shipped Fight Night 3 last Saturday and it's still not here. GNF definitely wins on the getting games to me faster front. If they can beat or match the total back and forth of Gamefly, I'll make the switch perminent. The only problem I see is GamesNFlix doesn't seem to have as many upcoming 360 games listed as Gamefly does and it seems they don't get the newest stuff as soon. That wouldn't have been a problem a couple months ago but by the end of March I plan to be done with all the launch games I plan to play.

I agree with you that they dont have as many new/uncoming games. But in 6 months when there are a ton of games out and even more coming out this wount be as big of a problem. I dont think they were ready for the amount of new members they got because of the 360 achievements

It's probably for the best. After the next big slate of games, I think whichever one I decide to stick with, I'm going to cancel my account for a couple months. April and may don't look busy enough to excuse $20-25 on game rentals seeing as I only have a 360 anymore. If I do buy a PS2 again though, that might all change.

I am on my like 4th rental with gameznflix and they seem to be great. Yes, they don't have the new games right when they come put but they have them within the week it seems.

GNF is starting to really win me over. Or rather, Gamefly is starting to piss me off again. They shipped Fight Night last Saturday and I just got it today (Friday). GNF on the other hand shipped me a game on Wednesday and it got here today too. Urge to kill, rising......

Gamefly is one of the best things to happen for achievement getting instead of paying 7 dollers a game you can pay 14 for as many games as you can get in a month
