I live in Columbus, OH and I've got a 2 day turnaround on games. On new releases, as long as I've got a spot in my Q open, they ship out on Monday and I get the game on Wednesday. Not too bad for a rental service, IMHO.
Games I've gotten thru Gamefly so far on the day after release: Singularity, Metroid: Other M, Halo: Reach, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Fallout: New Vegas, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Epic Mickey, Dragon Age 2, Portal 2, Red Faction: Armageddon, Child of Eden, Driver: San Francisco, Batman: Arkham City, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and lots more!
Here's some math that convinced me to pull the trigger and sign up:
Gamefly 2-game out 1 year cost of membership: $23 x 12 = $276
Brand new game on release day, sans deals: $60 (plus tax)
Therefore, $276/$60 = 4.6 new games per year, OR Unlimited rentals with 2 out at a time.
Obviously with sales and whatnot that number goes up, but the benefit with Gamefly is that you have access to WAY more games, and you can send back a game you get bored of at any time and pick it up later if you want.
Think of it this way. I plan on playing 1 new game every 2 weeks (at least). That's 26 games a year. Divide that by $276 for the membership, and it's like paying $10 per game. Factor in that I'll probably play way more games than that, the Gamefly trade in program, the Gamefly referral program, the Gamefly Rewards program... and we're talking maybe $5 per game (or even less). That is a phenomenal deal... and that's why I signed up.
