Oh Gamefly, you're so hilarious. I ordered multiple games in 1 order, but they split up the order to single games so now the orders don't have tracking numbers and probably longer shipping time... :bs:


They did this for me as well... Is this something they do often? I have done about a few dozen of these gamefly sales and any time I have ever bought more than one game they usually show up in about a day or two after ordering...

Same shit happened to me as well. I ordered 3 games and each one is shipping individually.

Picked up Rage. Figure it's worth 10 bucks. The little blurb for Gamefly says all game ship with online passes. I assume this is meant for renting subscribers, and not the sale of used games? That would be too cool. For Rage though I'm referring to the locked content if purchased used.

Just noticed this, my Gamefly package (w/ tracking number) was originally processed through Long Beach, then on to Salt Lake. Yet the label on the package says it's from Pennsylvania. I've always just gone by what's on the label and assumed I'm serviced by the Pittsburgh distribution center, but now my guess is I usually get my games from the CA one.

Anyways, got Driver and SotD :360:, both in very good shape and 100% install. Very very minimal chips on Driver, a few on SotD.

No, its the same no matter what.

The disc you get is the same disc thats been sent out to people renting the game. You'll get everything the game came with new, just err used

Wow, really? Apparently I need to pay more attention to these Gamefly sales. They even gave me free shipping for Rage.

Unfortunately FF13-2 arrived today completely unreadable due to scratches. Hope they have more copies that I can exchange for.

I didn't know NCIS was part of the sale!
I know it's supposed to be terrible, but I love NCIS, so I'm probably gonna get it and Ace Combat.

If not, hit it with some Brasso. Works for me everytime; even when the Xbox can't even recognize it as a disc.

Do you have to be a member of Gamefly to buy these games? I'm not seeing an option to purchase on the SotD PS3 page.

It's out of stock at the moment if you don't see the option. Try clicking on a less popular title and see what that looks like.

I'm so hesitant to buy games from here due to sratches and chips(?!). I guess for the price its good. but no resell value. Can someone post or pm me a pic of these chips? How would they even happen?

Investor has some pics uploaded of chipped disks from gamefly available here: http://www.cheapassg...hp?albumid=7864

I don't think it's been confirmed how they happen.

From what I've heard, it's just from being mailed many times. Same thing happens to Netflix discs. They very rarely cause issue in terms of the disc being read.

My advice would be to always go for the PS3 versions during Gamefly sales if you have the option unless the 360 version is clearly superior. The Blu-Ray discs are much more resilient than the 360 ones. Never had an issue with 360 discs or PS3 discs, but the PS3 ones always look much better.

Edit: Oh wow, never gotten actual chips before. The above only pertains to scratches!

I always use that as a rule. I never had a problem with Gamefly games not playing though. Guess I'm just lucky.

I'm wondering how many copies of Rage they have, and how many they've sold during this sale. I've been checking back for the past three days, hoping to find Driver SF back in stock, with no luck so far. Each time, I've checked on Rage (360 Version) as well, and I haven't seen it OoS yet. Great news for people that want Rage, but they must have had a crazy number of copies of it to start with.

If you want Driver SF, Wal-Mart has it as part of their buy 2 for $30 get one free Xbox 360 games. The total price comes to $35 once everything is taxed and shipped. If you don't want any of the other games they offer, you could just flip them on eBay and make $28 or so of that money back. I ended up keeping Driver SF and am in the process of selling off the other 2 games I got from the bundle because they were Platinum Hits and I'm picky, so I'll use the $$ to buy back versions that aren't.

As far as Driver itself goes, I like the game. The controls are touchy and the cars all fishtail a LOT, though. There is a story, but it's stupid and not really worth paying attention to. Think of it as a collection of driving mini-games, because that's basically what it is. Being "shifted" out of your car after doing a Tanner mission and having to do some other seemingly irrelevant story mission to unlock the next Tanner mission really breaks up any continuity the game could hope to have. It seems like they did this to give the story mode sense of length that just isn't there. But yeah, sometimes the driving mini-games get repetitive, some seem meaningless or annoying, but overall it's fun and for sure worth the $8-$12 bucks.

They might be shipping them from different distribution centers. Some may have simply reached the bare minimum for certain games, thus the need to ship it from a different center that has an abundance of the game. I received two packaged together today, will be receiving a third separately (probably in a few days). Not the end of the world.

Til it's over and then maybe for a week or so after that. Then the nightly deals usually return. Then they do a monthly sale. Rinse and repeat.

Wow, got my $10 NCIS in two days. Played through, got the platinum, and traded it into Best Buy for $17 less than 24 hours later. In case you're wondering, it was one of the worst games I have ever played.

Props for Stepping up and playing through it. Can't believe it traded in for 17.

Grabbed TORCHLIGHT for 3.75, for those that are true CAGs like me I'm not blowing 59.99 on D3 so from the reviews this game will easily suffice.

Played this game for a few hours, very addictive and fun, I beta tested D3 and almost like this better, much more ability to upgrade like D2, well worth the price, must buy!

I waited to long and Ace Combat is OOS for 360 now.
I guess I am not going to even bother ordering NCIS anymore, unless Ace Combat comes back in stock. I want to play it, but I don't want to only order one game from them.

Maybe next sale.

If I start a free trial and rent a game, will I still have the option to keep it for the price that it says and then cancel the trial when the 10 days ends?
I know you can check out a game, say Ace Combat AH, and have the option to keep it for $12.99, but I am wondering if that option is available during trials.
