I'd return/exchange it while you still can. Better safe than sorry with the RPMs the 360 DVD-Drive spins at.

Well! An update to my situation. I can't believe it has been going on this long. :cry:

I sent an emial Friday night, finally got an answer Sunday night stating I would get refunded the friggun money so I could buy the game again. Of course I won't be seeing this money for another couple days.

I called just now just to figure out why they couldn't have just shipped be the flippin game in a sleeve.

The game shipped with the disc in the case and some how it got taken out before it got to my house. Hmm... Wonder how that happened when the bubble mailer was still completely sealed when it got to my house.

Well, at least I got a free DMC 4 (360) case out of this. /sighs

Just got my DMC4 360. Disc is nearly immaculate; a few very light, minor scratches, but otherwise perfect.

Why does it sound like all PS3 games are coming in great condition but Xbox 360 games aren't?

I'm guessing simply because there are more 360 owners out there than PS3 owners that there is a larger percentage of Gamefly users who have a 360 rather than a PS3. Because the 360 discs get rented out more, they probably get banged up worse.

Blu-rays are made with much better scratch protection than DVDs.

Even then, isn't there supposed to be a quality guarantee on the discs? Like aren't they supposed to inspect the discs before sending them out and only ship ones that are in good condition?

Its probably like Gamestop where they will sell you anything as long as it isn't cracked in half.

For what it's worth, all 3 360 games I ordered came in great condition. At the end of the day, I think it's just luck.

I didn't bite on any of these games since the free shipping got taken away. But with the free 30 day gamefly trial (mcdnalds I think) I just got Orange box and AC, 1 day after I signed up, since I live very close to a shipping center. I am going to try and get at least 6 games this month, and I'll probably keep a few or them. So f you want free shipping and aybe faster shipping, maybe go with the free 30 day trial, 2 games at once.

Just got my unreal tournament for ps3 after a little bit of trouble with my old order. The game looks nice except for a few chips around the edges. Plays like a dream though. Case is very nice too. I guess I'd order again with free shipping.

That's good to hear. I just hope I have such "luck" with my Mass Effect. I order Thursday night and it still hasn't came. Been waiting almost a week and really hope it isn't all scratched up with chips and stuff. But I got the free shipping on it.

Anyone know if there's any chance they're going to do free shipping again in the near future?

Some games offer free shipping to non-customers, Bully (360) $24, and Army of Two on (PS3) $32 do for some reason. Maybe how long they've been available.

I was looking to get Lost Planet (PS3). Maybe I'll sign up for a free trial and get it so I can save myself that $3 :-P

Got my Mass Effect today. Has two small chips around the edge and a lot of light scratches. It plays okay so far. It lags very briefly every now and then, but that could just be it loading.

I was actually wondering the same thing myself. A little annoying, but so far the game is cool.

We apologize for the error. Please return the unplayable game by writing "Return to Sender" on the original package, resealing it, and dropping it in a mailbox.


Is this legal?

I think he's asking if it's legal for gamefly to pretty much not pay postage for shipping it back?

I wouldn't think so?
