You can also rent as said above from Blockbusters you don't have to have a store near you as you can do your game renting over the internet. They will deliver the games right to yoru doorstep, i have done it on numerous occasions and Blockbusters pay for the delivery and pickup of the games. :)

I'd go with Gamesfrenzy... Blockbuster is an evil franchise, supporting third world labour and other bad, evil things involving low wages and/or sewing machines.

10 ish a month at Gamesfrenzy lets you rent up to 2 games for as long as you want. Not come across a better deal nor customer service, email return is usually within a day and they happily refunded me in the past for discs that played up.

Support x360a and use this link (http://tracker.netklix.com/v4/click.asp?frmNKLinkId=209792):)

Definitely boomerang rentals (www.boomerangrentals.co.uk (http://www.boomerangrentals.co.uk))

Been using this service for 4 months now and not 1 bad word to say against them. They are cheap, have a good turnaround time, no late fees, and very reliable! And if you're still not sure, they give you a three week free trial for no fee, where you can try it, and not pay, and if you decide not to go ahead with it, you have lost no money!

You can't lose!

btw way the package that i am on is 12 per month. I lets me rent 2 games at a time for a long as i want, and i can get unlimited games per month, meaning if i finished with the game in a day, they would send me another one straight away, there is no limit. So in theory, i could rent about 15 - 20 games per month for 12!

Hey good thread and a few good recommendations.

They all look around the same to me both price wise and service wise, but does any stand out for the selection of games available and waiting times etc?

Thanks

Mate, that's terrible. 10 a month gets you up to two games for as long as you want at these online rental places.

If you go to lovefilm.com and enter this promo code LFZZ98763 you can get a 3 month free trial. Im going to use it to rent a bunch of easy 360 games. Well actually, just Full Auto, DW5 and Spiderman 3, since theres no way im buying them :p
