Game Rental Services (Like LOVEFilm etc) reviews?

Im looking at signing up to a games renatal company like LOVEFilm.
(ive seen the package there for 2 games at a time, max 4 a month for £10 ish)

obviously they are mainly DVDs but do games aswell, are they any good for games, does anyone use them for games?

if not are there any good services and how can i get them for the cheapest amount of money?

Yea, Lovefilm is great for renting games aswell... there'll be a code on here for 3 months free trial...sign up using that and see for yourself

But, during your free trial, choose the most expensive one, where it's unlimited discs, and games and movies. Normally about £18, I think... just be sure to cancel before the end of your trial

Lovefilm are superb. Been on a free trial for nearly four years (normally £18.99 a month). must have rented over 500 films and about 50 ps3 games.

I couldn't recommend OUTNOW either - said that the last discs I sent back hadn't arrived, and tried to tie me in for another month. Luckily I had a proof of posting, and demanded a refund, as I'd returned them over a week before the end of my trial.

Also, didn't get the sign-up gift I was promised.

Not sure if Blockbusters Online Rental rents out the games too, but if you have Quidco, you can get cashback for taking trials with some of these rental companies, which means you get the free trial, AND make some dosh! Can't be bad!

Currently using ]swapgame.com All good so far.

There are a couple of games rental sites on quidco gametart and gamesfrenzy. Might be worth a look

how did you manage that?

And if i go on a free trial for a month and select the most expensive package, then decide to continue on can i drop down to a lower package without having to pay anything for the higher one?

Yes, u will prob be billed for the more expensive once first but they will refund you if you decide to drop to a lower pacage... just send them an email. :thumbsup:

lovefilm are wicked, on my first ever 3 month free tral and ill b doing what everyone else does to get constant free trials, go with them and check a good few threads on here about how it works and how to make the most of ur package...good luck

The only problem I ever had with lovefilm was that their games discs were often quite badly scratched. I had probably about 60% of them not working.

Never a problem with DVDs though.

I think just too many kids not putting discs away properly and scratching them to bits.

also, do you have to subscribe for a fixed term (i.e a year) or can you subscribe month by month and cancel at any time sort of thing?

Ok ive signed up for a 90 day trial.

However i havent recieved an email from them at all, not even confirming my account creation?
and do i just add games to my queue to have them sent out?

bump for answer

yeah add games to the list and eventually they will b sent out....check ur junk mail...they shudda sent u a conf email

Just log into your account, and add at least 15 games / movies to your rental list... you'll then automatically be sent some from your list, hopefully the ones you've marked as high priority (but not necessarily!)
