Hi, im from the UK and i frequently see people posting comments on renting games from 'Gamefly' located in the US.

Anyone from the UK, who knows of any website similar, could they post the website please (If there are any :P)

Note, i am 17 Years old and unfortunately can't rent games from my Local Blockbuster and quite frankly they're a complete rip off anyways!

Thanks :)

Lovefilm.

Using the deal for 3 games at a time, and unlimited games a month...
It costs 20, but you can go through 10-20 games easily. And it's very fast delivery.

If you check the website, you can get 1 month free, so try it out and see if you like it. I reckon it's the best rental site in the UK.

Not from the UK myself but that top one looks pretty good, although I have no idea what UK prices are like.

EDIT: Or go with someone (post above me) who is actually from the UK and would have a better idea.

I had a 3 month free trial, and I went through about 50 games, during the postal strike. Can't go wrong w/Lovefilm. :)

Few Questions.

Do you pay a monthly bill on a Debit/Credit card in terms of sucscription.
OR can you choose to rent games at any time without a membership?

I attend school and im too lazy to get a part time job, so if its a monthly subscription, im basically...fucke* :)

It's monthly. But if you consider that it's about 5 per rental at blockbuster, even with school you can still go through 10-20.

You could choose a deal like 2 games at a time, unlimited games for 15 a month. Just look at the deal and decide what suits you best.

I've got a LoveFilm account and it saves so much time and money. I'm on the lowest account of 10 a month but thats just as good! I get to have 4 games/movies a month but on 2 at home at a time. It would normally take a good 2 weeks to fully play any game for me (due to work/social) so I dont need anymore than 2! Plus you'll see you GS rise like 80yr old on viagra!

It saves you so much money in renting/trading in/buying new etc etc.. I'd recomment it! But then again if you're to lazy to get a job then you cant really until you have a wage or... parents credit card lol

15 games a week? You think there are just over 3 weeks in 3 months?

It's 17 in 4 and a bit weeks on average. And seeing as most of those were easy achievement games that took under a day...

Lovefilm is great. Send a game back on Monday, you'll have a replacement by Weds. Send that back Thurs, and you'll have another one on Sat. Great speed. I went through 10 games in a month easily for GSL.

You said 15 games a WEEK, not a month.

And no, I have a great social life, most of the games only took 3-6 hrs to play.

Don't try and insult me because you can't even solve simple sums.

Lmao. Summer Holidays. Avg of 5 hrs per game = 85 hrs a month. That's like under 3 hrs a day, which is barely anything...

Now stop being so pathetic and fuck off.

Don't insult people who are just giving advice to others so that they don't waste money.

Stupid dick, this website is to help people, if you are going to embarass yourself infront of people, fail to solve simple maths problems, and assume things that are false, then stop using this website.
