Game rental

I know there are a few companies that do game rental. My roommate suggested one like netflix. Does anyone have one they suggest? Pros? Cons? Cost? We have a Wii so that's the only games we would be renting.

I don't ride, I cook!

I had gamefly for a while, I just didn't find enough games to rent that could justify the monthly cost.

Do you remember how much it was? Was there a limit on how many games you could rent a month?

one game out at a time is 17 a month with taxes and such. it takes about 5 business days to get a disc from them at best I can go through 4 games a month.

The selection has gotten way better they.

plus they offer a keep it if you like it option and prices are competative.

that and the longer you are a member you get 5 dollars off and 5% to 10% off games purchases.

What system are you renting for? I was almost exclusive to Wii titles and I should have specified that. But that was a year ago and a lot more has come out since then.

I did like the incentive program for buying titles you like though.

For that price check out hollywood video no wait unless they are out of the game. If you get home and the game sucks you can run back and swap it out.

Thanks and for $8 a month, I can keep games for 5 days at a time, and can have one out all the time, so basically that's 6 games a month. I'm just looking for a way to try some of the games that we want to buy.
