Yes, what is this obsession with cosmetic "chips"? Since when does that matter for used games? This isn't the comic collection business, is it? We're still talking about video games and their playability (that is what I always assumed the "excellent condition" referred to), and I have *never* had a problem w/ GF discs out of the 10 or so I've ordered.

Yeah, Gamestop around here blows. They've got a policy now where they throw away the original case/manual for DS games, and all you get are the game in a generic case (provided they can find one, which in several cases they haven't, so I'd get a paper sleeve). Disc condition is usually bad to "looks like sandpaper has run over it".

I will glad take a few scratches or chips from the Gamefly discs. 1) usually great prices, 2) complete. Out of probably 30 buys over 3+ years, I've only had 1 disc that wouldn't play, and their return policy was easy and hassle-free. I'm to the point where the only times I'll buy games is GF, Amazon or Newegg.

Bingo!

Look. There are, obviously, people here who have never received any chipped discs from Gamefly, while the rest of us unlucky ones, and there are a lot of us, do. Now there's nothing wrong with getting the chipped discs if you are a collector of games and will not be selling or trading them with anyone else. And there maybe a potential issue with these chips causing wear and tear of the optical disc drives due to the imbalancing, but that's another argument not worth debating right now.

All I'm saying it that while Gamefly do offer great values in these used copies coming with prestine cases, manuals and, most importantly, online codes, they should really put a warning on their website that these discs "May come with chips" on them, so that those who were planning to trade or sell them after finishing their games can without any issues. I think that's fair, and not an unreasonable request at all.

I usually like to trade in games to GameStop or bestbuy for store credit once I get bored of them and are just sitting there collecting dust. I don't have all the cash to buy all the games I want so I trade them in and if the discs have chips on it, even if it works perfectly fine, no store will accept it

This made my day. You are actually SERIOUS? Make sure you talk about this at any job interview you go to, we need more business people like you running things.

Yeah, "may come with chips", for all of you that don't understand what "used" means.

You have been very unlucky if your gamefly discs are in worse condition than GS. I have never seen a "good" used disc from GS. I havent ordered from Gamefly in a while, but the 5 or 6 I did order were mostly flawless PS3 discs. I think 1 had 2or 3 small chips around the edge. Which to me means nothing since the actual layer of the disc being played was scratch free. And the box and manuals are all excellent coniditon. Which is really the great part of Gamefly. You will VERY RARELY find a good box and manual in GS or anywhere else that sells used games. Why? Cause people are fucking nasty. Thats why! :)

After saying all that, condition is relative, we all have different opinions. But most people will agree Gamefly condition overall is much better than GS or any other store.

enjoy they drive working 10x or more on those chipped discs. No common sense these days.... sad as sad panda...

Gamefly is the only place I've ever purchased a used game that had chips. I've purchased used games that had some scratches, even a small crack once (that I didn't notice when I was picking it up), but never chips. That's not just "used" to me. That's "abused".

i've traded numerous chipped discs to different gamestops in my area. you must've missed them on your magic carpet ride to every single gamestop :roll:

I've never gotten a used game from GameStop with chips on it. Want to know why? Because they don't accept chipped discs, they look at that shit like hawks. You obviously have never traded anything in to GameStop. Please go call your GameStop and ask them "can I trade in my game that runs perfectly fine but has multiple chips on the edges?" come back and tell us what they say. Also, its not like the chips are unnoticeable, so we can't just go and pretend like its fine because right when the light hits the disc, all the chips pop out like Pringles

hit or miss but selling online is a bad idea to many people do not read desc. gs is meh imo and twice they said no and 3 times yes. workers there can be lazy or stingy. point i make is i rather pay 1-2 more to not wear my hw down. always to hd to test 360 games i hardly did and i had 3 games fail. i waited months to install. i only booted fast only.

GameFly is EXCELLENT about issuing refunds if you're not satisfied. What more do you "chippy" people want? Have some more cheese. Stop buying from GF and leave them for the rest of us who don't have all of your myriad of issues and just want to buy cheap games. If your complaining results in fewer quality sales from GF, then you will have done this entire community a great injustice.

What are you babbling about? I've repeatedly said that if you set your expectation level appropriately, you'll be pleased. It's true that they issue refunds, and are great with all that, but if the game goes out of stock, they don't replace it with another copy, so you're out the game.

Sounds like somehow you wound up with sand in your vagina over all this. I'm sure Gamefly will quit selling games if a handful of people get broken discs and complain (I haven't ever requested a refund BTW-CAG can thank me later for not making Gamefly cancel all used sales as a policy). :roll:

I buy from them when the price hits a point that a severely cosmetically damaged disc wouldn't bother me. My first order it was really annoying because everyone raves about the condition of discs, while mine were beat to hell. At this point I have ordered enough from them to expect chipped and scratched discs that still play.

Rinse with vinegar. Freak-sake.

After purchasing many games from them and never having a problem I received twisted metal today and the disc looks like someone intently scrapped a fork across both the readable side and the side with artwork on it.

I sent them an email but it's Saturday so not sure what they'll do. I want the game but just a disc swap, not sure if they do that or not. Any other alternatives someone could recommend?
