What Is GameFly

GameFly Free TrialGameFly was officially launched on September 8, 2002 and didn’t take long to become a major success in the gaming industry. Gamefly is similar to Netflix, Blockbuster, and Booksfree as in you pay a monthly subscription price and the games are delivered by the post office directly to your home. The best thing about this site is that there are never any late fees. The process is simple. You choose the plan that you want, add games to your queue and then GameFly ships them out. The games will normally reach your house in 48 to 72 hours. This plan allows you to keep the games as long as you want, then return them in the envelope that Gamefly provides. The thing that Gamefly’s loyal customers like the most about this process is that you don’t have to worry about making it to the video store before they close to avoid late fees, as there are none.

    1. Very true, but Blockbuster on-demand does not offer new releases, and for me new releases are extremely important.

    2. Hey Bob – you are absolutely correct, blockbuster is a bit cheaper BUT you cannot rent new releases with Blockbuster.
      And for me that is a deal breaker.

    3. GameFly is to expensive Blockbuster has games and movies and is less expensive.
