I feel cursed with Rayman Origins! This is, what, the 3rd time Gamefly has had it, yet i've missed it every time because it goes out of stock so rapidly. Then i made the disastrous mistake during Best Buy's recent sale of ordering it shipped, since one of my items wasn't in-store. Dumb decision - it got cancelled, naturally.

I had a full refund in 6 minutes after my email
They're service is great

Ah, missed LotR:WitN.
Maybe be a next time, hopefully.

They ever patch that game for 360?

The thing that gets me about the games they ship out without tracking #s is that they have a delivery confirmation # on them when they arrive. You can have some tracking ability with a DC #.

Probably a bit of a noob question and I apologize if this has been covered, but do you have to be an existing gamefly member to take advantage of this sale?

Could I sign up for the 30 day trial and purchase some games? Beyond that, do you "rent" the game, and is there an available option to "keep" it, beyond the description link.

Dang it. Syndicate - out, Sonic Generations - out, skipping Mario Kart due to KMart having it that price on Sunday....thinking about Twisted Metal, but with Borderlands 2 on the way.....eh...seems like I'm always a day late to these parties. :)

Happy hunting everyone.

One question - when did inflation kick in so that it is now the $1,000,000 Dollar Pyramid?

You can buy the games without a subscription. However I think you can rent and then pay the keep price on games if you do the trial.

Which version of Syndicate were you looking for, PS3 or 360?

So I have had Syndicate on my shelf all summer after buying it during a B2G1 at BBY. Finally popped it in and I have to say I am kind of disappointed. It is not bad. It just does not bowl me over. I mean for $8 it will be serviceable but overall I am not impressed so far. I guess the co-op was the really nice thing about it but there is not too much going on there. Anyway, I am going to try to finish it but right now I just want to get through and trade it for $12.60. Oh yea it has frozen my system up twice which is rare for me.

Does anybody know any more about how it works with renting and then paying to keep the game?

I REALLY want Halo, and wouldn't mind Sonic Generations for the Xbox 360... even if these games come back in stock it is hard to tell if I'll have access to a computer for the 15 minutes it might be available. So if I'm planning on buying it, what down side would there be? I've never done a game fly rental or purchase.

Keep
If you've rented a great game and want to own it, click Keep and the game is all yours up to 50% off retail prices!
Once you confirm that you want to Keep:
You keep the game disc you already have.
The original case and manual should arrive within 5 business days.
The credit card in My Account is charged our low pre-played game price and any applicable sales tax, as well as a small shipping and handling charge if you are not a paying rental member.
Your purchase will process within 24 hours, and then we’ll send the next available title in your GameQ.
All pre-played game purchases are final.
Your credit card will not be charged until you confirm your purchase.


So IF the prices are what the KEEP actually shows, then I guess I would get charged shipping and handling (hopefully wouldn't rape me on that)... Bidding on these eBay copies sucks, most are still going up to $20 bucks with shipping on top of them. If I can get it for $13.00 + shipping (as long as it isn't like 6 bucks or more), then I think I'd be doing alright. Anybody else got any ideas on how to get this game cheap?

No. And that's why the :360: is cheaper than the :ps3:

I just started playing Syndicate, and I'm having fun. It did freeze on my once, but BF3 freezes on my all the time, and it's not a problem for me. Syndicate's campaign is cool, and the co-op is awesome. I have no trouble finding someone to play with so far.

So I have had Syndicate on my shelf all summer after buying it during a B2G1 at BBY. Finally popped it in and I have to say I am kind of disappointed. It is not bad. It just does not bowl me over.

Thank you for the daily updates. I'm super curious to see how your experience is going and I'm dying to know when your games ship because it - like all videogame related things - directly affects my well-being, as it should for everyone.
CAG: Where it doesn't matter how good or how cheap a game is, but games would only be "worth buying" to people if only they were $10 cheaper.

Bought and received a copy of NFS: The Run that had part of the game label scratched off. You could see through the disc. Needless to say, it didn't work. That'll be the first game I got from them DOA.

So now we go through the RMA/re-order process. What a pain.

wow where did you and the other douche come from because last i checked


most people who have never bought from gamefly would want to know how long it takes for them to ship/receive during these sales

ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND

the fact that some people not only shipped but also received in less than 1 day where mine hasnt shipped in 2+ days could mean some kind of issue or that they may have oversold their stock

I think you can evaluate how long shipping generally takes by user comments. If you feel you have a problem please contact gamefly. We don't need daily updates about how you were "the first" to place an order and how that order is still pending.

Unfortunately no...but I had 3 games so it was a tight fit. You might have better luck if you only ordered it as a single or with one other game.

For those that care, I contacted GF about my Halo order that hadn't been fulfilled yet. Pretty much, as you probably guessed, oversold their allotment and are working on a solution. Two hours of extra orders came in after they sold out so it seems likely a cancellation may be coming in the future.

My Sonic Generations order shipped the next day, now its out of the distribution center's hands.

I live in northern NJ and it always takes 3-4 business days for me to get my package. GameFly's closest distribution center is in Penn, so what's the hold up with the USPS? Anyone else from NJ wanna chime in? Not just GameFly, I also ordered a book from PA, USPS again, and I'm about to hit the 3 day mark tomorrow.

I can send something from here to California and it takes 3 days, I kinda expected at least the next day or 2 days.

How does that even work logistically? :cold:

The keep option is only for current members. It will show the option but you can choose it since you are not a member. That also means the item is out of stock.
