Gah, caved and got GoldenEye 007 and WWE All Stars for Wii. I expect to be burned in price on the former come this holiday season.

They can flag my account all they want. It's not my fault that their games have all these chips. Take a look at my album. I didn't know that they would flag you, though. Although I'm not ordering from them anymore, and I agree with you about spending a few more dollars somewhere else for the peace of mine, I do appreciate you informing us of this. Thanks!

Just a warning those chips put so much stress on the drive reading them and man does it ever. It is science just think about it. The drive is spinning and all those chips make the disc more unstable and the air goes into those chips which slows it down and makes it work so much harder. It is like doing a custom car as a box shape driving down the street. Yes it drives fine but it takes more power for the engine to go and it puts a lot of stress on the engine. I rather have my 360 not RROD even the newer models can do this or the drives fail. This is one way to make the % of it happening to you.

But some people will say it is not true and i bet those same people buy extension cords galore and plug in like 20 things into 1 outlet and thinks that is perfectly fine. Common sense is a wonderful tool.

Also a warning for people thinking about taking the chance and if they do get chipped discs gamefly bans you from buying/renting if you return a few no matter how many you buy. They blame the chips happening at your local post office and will not ship anymore to you. If you do not believe me you can contact them and ask how this stuff works. It is simple to return items but you send in say betweeen 2-5 they flag your account and good chance it goes bye bye. I suggest googling to about it.

These deals are amazing but just think is it worth paying 1-2 bones somewhere else and get them fine or save 1-2 bones and take the chance they got chips or not working or whatever other issues arises. I bought duke nukem for $10 i regret it cause i bet it comes chipped like the last few i got did. I ended up giving them away and bought them somewhere else. I love the ones that sound so bad like a jet plane taking off. Those rule!

I still like to know how they get all those outer edge chips!

Sure wish All-Stars would drop that low for Xbox. Or drop at all.

ive decided to turn down this great price. I have too many games right now...and this will distract me way too much.

Does anyone know what Motorstorm Apocalypse is used price when not on sale?

35-40 most likely

Speaking of which, I just got my copy in the mail today. Disc has 2 or 3 chips but otherwise looks great. Manual and case are fantastic, and it even comes with the unused vehicle pack voucher. Should make a great first game to try out with my first Dualshock 3

played my copy of red faction:a (ps3) and it locked up on the final chapter, system freeze each time.
Disc didn't look bad, and there hadn't been any problems prior. Returning, probably not going to rebuy.
I think I'm more disappointed about how great the game could have been. The new weapons, experience system, vehicles and rebuild gun + rf:g would have been so much better.

Just received Portal 2 Posted Image and the Steam code was unused. http://www.cheapassg...AAAElFTkSuQmCC:)
This was my first purchase from Gamefly. Everything looks great except for a couple of small dents around the edge of the disc.

Ended up biting on Epic Mickey, LEGO Star Wars III, Force Unleashed II and Portal 2. I've bought so many games from GameFly this past month, I don't know when I'm even going to play them all.

Also received my copy of GT5 today. Mine has no scratches and no chips/dents, so I'm very happy. I've had bad luck with Gamefly in the past, so I'm surprised I didn't get one scratched or chipped up.

If you get GT5 I suggest you don't try Forza 4, because Forza 4 kills GT5 in pretty much all aspects. Graphics in GT5 are decent, but I really think GRID looks better...Forza 4 absolutely looks better. Worst part is engine sounds. Forza 4 beats GT5 by a huge margin in this category. Only the premium models having cockpit view in GT5 is also a big disappointment. I'll probably craigslist/ebay my copy of GT5 and wait for FOrza 4 to go on sale for 40. It really is far and away better than GT5.

I do not know was saying Gamefly shipping was slow but I recieved mine today, ordered GT5 and Motorstorm. Both disks almost perfect and Motorstorm even came with the unused code for DLC.

Did you get it for 360? I no longer buy 360 games off Gamefly due to the discs scratching so easily. Only makes sense that if you buy a rental copy it's gonna take a good deal of abuse. Blu-Ray discs are much tougher and hold up a lot better.

^THIS^

I stopped buying games from Gamefly also specifically for this reason; every X360 and Wii game I purchased from them were in horrible condition, hell one time a disc was literally cracked down the middle. It's worth it to me to pay ~$10 more for a game that I really want brand new versus paying less and getting a copy that appears to have been used as a Frisbee by some neighborhood kids playing with rabid rottweilers.

The good thing is though they take returns very easily, just email them. They always told me to reseal the game in the original packaging and write "return to sender" on the package. In a few days I always got a full refund. At least that is who it used to work.

Lmao well I learned my lesson....I'm going to only order my 360 games from gohastings since every 360 game I ever got from them came in brand new condition lol

Thanks for the feedback guys.....maybe I'll just ship it back to them for the full refund.

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?

There's your lesson if your gonna buy used games at least do it from gohastings, where the disc is actually a mint one.

I got my No More Heroes PS3. Game disc was pretty much flawless, as was the rest of it. Probably wasn't rented a whole lot though.

Got Portal 2 (PS3) in the mail today. Good news/bad news: Disc was virtually scratch free, and barely any chipping at all. Unfortunately, steam code had already been used...
