Did anyone order NFS: Hot Pursuit on Friday and not have it shipped out yet? I find it weird that I ordered KOF XIII Sunday, and it shipped out the next morning, but NFS hasn't yet.

I see a lot of posts in here about chipped discs ?

Is there truth to this ?


I've ordered about a dozen games from gamefly. Mix of ps3/360.

Maybe 20% of them have any damage whatsoever, and it's always been chips for me. If you've ever looked at a mail order optical disc (gamefly or netflix) you know what I mean. Around the edges, caused by the mailer. Cosmetic and no cause for alarm.

I've never received a disk with a single visible scratch or anything less than a brand new case/manual/dlc code (they don't even bother completely removing the shrinkwrap and tape sometimes).

I'm pretty sure every disc I've gotten from Gamefly has had a couple of chipped edges. Most the Xbox ones come fairly scratched up, and the PS3 ones are usually flawless. The chips don't bother me, I've bought 15 or so games from them, and plan to buy more tonight if there are some good deals!

Honestly, seems like a lot of damage depends on whoever handles the package in transit. I've ordered probably a total of 10 games over the years, only only once was a case chipped. I've been fortunate enough that every game disc has also arrived mint, and literally the only thing wrong with the one game was the case.

Case damage is IMO the fault of the shipping company (ups/fedex/usps/whatever). I would complain to gamefly about it if it happened to me (it hasn't) as they'd probably like to know. The way their used game shipping works I don't see how they'd end up with more than a very tiny number of damaged cases caused by them.

I've rented 154 games from Gamefly over 6 years -- 80 PS3 games and 74 PS2 games -- and bought 3 games (2 PS3, 1 PS2). Out of all of those, I've only ever had 1 PS3 rental that had trouble playing. I think I might have seen one chipped disc several years ago. If I did, it played fine. If any of the other discs had any chips or scratches, I didn't notice.

I wouldn't say it's no cause for alarm, if the chips are deep enough they can definitely make the data on the disc unreadable. There's probably a much higher chance that chips will affect readability/playability of PS3 discs than scratches due to the fact that PS3 discs are pretty hard to scratch. I've avoided ordering any 360 games from gamefly because there's a decent chance it'll be scratched up, but I don't worry about that when ordering PS3 games from them. All of the games I've ordered have been chipped, but most people won't notice chipped edges until they look at a photo or are shown what the chips look like.

Some of the chips on the games I've received have come VERY close to breaching the data on the disc, but luckily none of them have.. I guess I've been lucky.

I am certainly NOT one of the lucky ones.

Discs can be chipped? How could that happen?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Well after hearing about the crappy condition these tend to come in, coupled with the fact that all the support tells me is that I "put my billing address in wrong" (which I didn't) I'm just going to pass.

I can find a mint copy of DA2 on eBay and have actual pictures to look at for a few bucks more, and I don't have to deal with GameFly's nonsense. Not to mention they charge tax, lol.

Ever Rage out because someone forgot your Anniversary? Surely, there was some Resistance, but it won't be your Final Fantasy.

Did you try adding extra 4 digits to zip code? I hate those.

Chips? Minor cosmetic on outer surface, never heard of it making a game unplayable unless you are talking about scratches, cracks, or Xbox games. Also gamefly cases/manuals/DLC codes come unused and you can ask for a replacement case if case broke during shipping, no extra charge.
