Gamefly is an online video game rental service that operates much like the Netflix DVD-by-mail program. Customers sign up for a monthly membership, which entitles them to rent unlimited video games online. Their selections are sent to them by mail, and they may keep the games as long as they want. When they are no longer interested in keeping a game, they can send it back using prepaid postage, and receive the next game on their list. One or two games can be rented at a time, depending on which plan you sign up for. Like Netflix, Gamefly does not have any due dates or late fees, and members can cancel at any time.
Gamefly offers 8000 titles for all the major gaming platforms. Currently, games are available for Xbox, Xbox 360, PSP, Playstation 2 and 3, Gamecube, NintendoDS, Wii, and Gameboy Advance. With the "Keep" feature, if you like a game you have rented, you will have the option to purchase it at a discount. The retail box and instruction manual will then be sent to you by mail. Using Gamefly in this way is a great way to try out many different games before deciding which ones to buy.
With four shipping centers located in different parts of the US, members get their selections relatively quickly regardless of where they live. Other benefits of membership include a rewards program for longtime members, which allows you to purchase games at special discounts. Gamefly also provides a plethora of game information, including such things as cheat codes, walkthroughs, reviews, and user ratings.

This is a good, affordable plan if you do not play too many games and only want to try one game at a time. Keep in mind that you are bound to receive games you do not like and send back immediately, which means that on many occasions you may be stuck with nothing to play while you are waiting for your next title to be delivered.
- 2 Games Out for $10.00 the First Month ($22.95 Starting the Second Month)
Active gamers will benefit the most from selecting this plan. It only costs $7.00 more than the other plan, and you get to play twice the number of games.
New Features at Gamefly:
A relatively new service called Gamefly Digital allows you to purchase thousands of PC and Mac games for immediate download. Be aware that even with the fastest Internet connection, game downloads are likely to take many hours. The best time to purchase a game is late in the evening. That way, you can start the download, have it run overnight, and be able to play the following morning when you wake up.
