re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

^ Still think buying used then reselling is the cheaper path but more work then Gamefly. I have literally been paid to play games. I bought LittleBigPlanet for like $25 and sold it a month later for like $32. I KEEP no games, I have a paypal account just for buying used games I rarely have to put money into. It goes down when I buy then replenishes when I sell. Nice little system and it keeps the wife off my back for buying to many damn video games. =)

I used gamefly off and on. I like it but there can be long waits for new/popular releases.

True about selling back, I forget I am one of the few who live about 2 hours from anywhere to trade games in at. <beats head on desk>

Never ever trade them to a Gamestop always sell on half.com or ebay.

Don't get me started on Gamestop and their evil ways.

Funny, I haven't had the same issues with Netflix that I've had with Gamefly.

I've found the delivery times to be much quicker with Netflix too.

What is in your Que Out of Africa? Anything in my Que filmed this decade takes forever to ship.

Yeah don't do it at the brick and mortar places though

they'll give you 15 or 20 and sell it at 50

yeah Gamefly didn't have an east coast distribution spot for the longest time, they started coming closer a couple of years ago I think

they still have a small amount I believe and I think that I read that netflix has over 100 distro spots

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

Netflix has a distribution center in Albany and another one nearby in MA. so I usually have a very quick turnaround. I could drop a movie in the mail on a Monday and have a new one back by Wednesday.

Same here but it seems like any of the new movies never ship.

Sometimes I may have a "short wait" for a movie but I haven't had any major issues. Maybe I've just been lucky.

Ok help me prove a theory of mine. How long have you been a member, just counting your current membership, don't count when you use to belong then quit then joined again, if you did that.

This.

The only move I had a wait on so far was "Wild Hogs" and they shipped me that (from another distribution center) and my next movie "Taken", so I have two out for the price of one.

Gamefly is much slower and takes more strategy to get games on release day.

Off and on since 2004 or so, but most recently member since Jan 2009.
