Received :ps3: Homefront today. Game was in perfect condition, didn't even have the chips that I've seen on other games I've bought from Gamefly.

Hopefully there will be some more deals on games I want soon.

Anyone have any issues with the HomeFront online code? PSN doesn't say it's used, but that the code is "incorrect or invalid." Googled the issue and apparently it's a huge issue. Tried to contact THQ about it and 4 days and 3 hours worth of hold time later no answer. I've even read issues where people have purchased the code through PSN and gave the same error I got.


Thanks.

Just got my LA Noire and MVC 3 for 360 today. That was fast. Like the rest of the games I ordered, games were pristine. I am really impressed with Gamefly. I can't imagine buying used elsewhere anymore after this. =]

are the used prices for the games without free shipping permanent?

its not the games i am doubtful about, but the people complaining of bad cases and bad discs.

Just received Crysis 2 :ps3: today, and like my other 2 :ps3: games purchased from Gamefly during these sales, Crysis 2 has a bunch of chips on it (7 total).

That's 4 out of 4 Gamefly discs with chips edges all over them. I'm very sorry to say, but I'm done with purchasing my used games from Gamefly. I'll go back to what had always worked before for me, and that's buying used PS3 games from GoHastings. Never had a problem with them.

I don't think that these chips are caused by USPS. Because if that was the case, then all 40 used games or so from Gohastings would have had them as well, and none of them do.

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?

I see what you're saying now.

But what about Netflix? I rent all my used Blu-ray movies from them, and even the older ones don't have chips on them.

I've purchased four (five actually, but recieved four at this point) games from them thus far. Done quite a bit of playing on those games without any problem, and received them in a reasonable amount of time. That being said, all four do have the outside chips everyone keeps talking about. This is just my point of view, but if it causes a problem with my ability to play, than I have a problem. As all have worked without problem... I am without concern.

I ordered stuff (free shipping) on Thursday, it shipped Friday from Long Beach, CA and is in Indianapolis tonight. I cussed when I saw CA instead of PA, but this will probably be the fastest package from Gamefly I've had.

I think Gamefly resurfaces discs as well. Either that, or I'm getting unused ones.

I don't know for a fact if they do or don't resurface their disk but I assume they don't. I have ordered many games from them and all of them have been at least a little scuffed, while lots have been extremely scratched. I've even had to return a game recently because it was so scratched it wouldn't read. I don't see why they would resurface some but let so many others go out in such bad shape.

You can see it in this photo. They're scattered around the edges of the whole disc, but don't appear to go deep enough to interfere with disc reading so far. It's like someone inexplicably bumped the edges with a sharp rock.

Majority of the games I rent have those exact marks. The discs still work though.

Got Crysis 2 in the mail today, it was the LE edition! (whoop whoop)! Also came with an unused code for the LE bonus stuff, so I was quite happy about that. Even more, I didn't see any chips on the disc and it had no scratches whatsoever either. Never had a problem with ANY damage from any games I bought from Gamefly...I guess I'm just lucky there?

Got two more games coming (Lego Pirates and LBP2), will see what the condition is of those when they come.

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

So far, my games have been alright.

NFS:HP was barely playable. I had to clean the disc pretty good to play it, but it seems to work fine. The disc is extremely scratched and has a lot of the chips.

Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem were a little better. They both have chips, but the discs are in decent shape. Minor scratches and Bulletstorm has a fingerprint, but they both look fine.

I'm definitely still impressed with Gamefly, even if the discs aren't perfect.

I received (2) Marvel vs Capcom 3 for the 360, and they are in absolute horrible condition.

The 1st has some edge chips, but is covered in the white paste they use for disc resurfacing.

The 2nd has more edge chips than the 1st, and 6 hairline cracks in the center ring.

I can probably clean up the 1st disc, but the 2nd disc that has 6 hairline cracks in it is totally unacceptable....it will be going back to them for a refund.

I've received 13 games from Gamefly in the past month...all but 1 have had chips on the edges, but this is the 1st time that the center ring has had cracks in it.

I've had a couple like that from these sales, with the cracks. I agree it's a hassle to have to request a refund and then ship it back to them. Seems like lately the discs (at least for Xbox) are in far worse shape than previous orders over the years.

Still like Gamefly on the whole however, although I'm finding I'm doing the buying more off of Amazon Warehouse, but I can't complain on the rentals via GF. And still interested in seeing what other deals they have in store for us from now till the holidays.

i have purchased both PS3 and 360 games in the past months. the PS3 games have been in flawless condition. i know blu-ray discs can be a bit more durable. the 360 discs are what i really have been running into trouble with and it seems like many others are as well. tons of scratches, some deeper than others, chips in the disc, etc. considering they are all used you would figure that even the PS3 discs would be showing a little wear. the 360 discs have all been shot. i guess that is kinda what you are paying for when you spend $10 on a $30 or $40 dollar game but I know we all want them to be alot better. saves the trouble of having to send discs back, file complaints with gamefly, etc.

Bulletstorm was in pretty good shape but Dead Space 2 had the chips along the edges that have become more common as of late.

got assassin's creed brotherhood for the ps3 yesterday.

had those chips on the edge of the discs like everyone has said.

for a first time for buying a used game from them, it's kinda a "bleh" first impression. hopefully when there's another deal and i get that game it'll be better.
i wouldn't expect an absolutely perfect disc as i understand these are rentals but those chips on the edges are kinda questionable and a deal breaker for me. i wouldn't wanna put a physically damaged disc into my ps3.

These are the chips everyone is talking about? I thought I got lucky and mine didn't have them, but I probably just didn't notice since I was looking for something more significant. No offence intended, but I feel like having problem with this sort of minor wear and tear on a used game is pretty nitpicky.

I don't know for a fact if they do or don't resurface their disk but I assume they don't. I have ordered many games from them and all of them have been at least a little scuffed, while lots have been extremely scratched. I've even had to return a game recently because it was so scratched it wouldn't read. I don't see why they would resurface some but let so many others go out in such bad shape.


I can't imagine an operation as big as Gamefly not resurfacing their discs. My guess would be that they undergo a very basic inspection and only the worst ones get reseufaced.


are the used prices for the games without free shipping permanent?


No.

All you have to do is just run your finger on the outside edges of your PS3 Gamefly used games. You can't miss them. Just place your finger vertical to the edge of the discs, and feel around them. You will feel multiple dents. And upon closer inspections of those dents, you'll see all the chips.

How big of a file can I attach here? Can I PM them to you? I don't have any software that will resize my pictures, but my Canon can take pictures of around 4MB each. I can try to take some pictures of my 2 games that I had just received from Gamefly (Homefront with over 10 dents, and Bulletstorm with about 5 dents), and send them to you.

Edit: I tried posting pictures that I just took, which are a lot clearer and deeper than the one posted below me. But I don't have the option to post attachments right now. Why is that?

I couldn't add them as attachments, so I added them to my "Picture Album." Just click on my Profile, and the Album with 3 pictures of Homefront can be found on the left side.


OK, thanks for those pics - I just checked them out. I have never seen anything close to that on my games from Gamefly and I've gotten quite a few from them - but not too many recently. Is this a newer issue? I should have some coming in Monday via priority mail though (Lego Pirates and LBP 2). I'll definitely inspect those very closely. I did get 2 copies of Killzone 3 last week and neither of those had any chips.

Edit: OK, upon closer inspection of one of them, it might have one small chip. But come to think of it, I've gotten plenty of new PS3 games that are a little rough in spots on the edges. I never thought of them as chips, but they may be small ones. I think some of them just come that way.
