It can take anywhere from 10-14 days for just 1 game from Gamefly to arrive unfortunately. But it will get there, so not to worry.

Just 1, arkham city. I figure it will be here monday.

"Don't buy it" is all I can say.


The previous game, Shattered Dimensions is way better. I might go back and unlock some of the costumes etc.

2 of the 3 games had 5+ chips off the edges. Customer service was nice enough to refeund and sent me a return lable. But, first of all, how would a game get chips on the edges? Do they have a machine that man handles the games?

Did you actually try the games first ??

Most games from GF have chips on the edges (I guess due to repeated trips through the post) but they still work fine. As long as the flat read surface on the disc is not marked badly, they should be ok.

^I think most of us think it's the resurfacer that they are using. I know that's what I think.

Thanks for the heads up. Beat original, but would like to play DLC which is surprisingly free. Never tried MP either.

Part of the chipped area had it protrude under the disc surface area. In other words, it was not longer smooth along the edges and would cause a problem spinning.

My Darkness II came today. Disc is good, but could be a lot worse. Was hoping for LE version. Anyone got a LE version with a code they don't want LOL. Now patiently waiting for Asuras Wrath.

Pretty hard to screw up Blu Ray disc. One of the reasons got PS3.

Can't tell you how many defective 360 games we had when I worked at Blockbuster.

That's a good point. Maybe I need to re-think my theory. I'm curious if people who rent from Gamefly, if their discs have chips on them as well.

Also, I emailed Gamefly about my Prototype being cracked in the middle and they issued me a mailing label right away, and said they've already credited my card for the refund. Since the sale is still going on, I just ordered another copy which is hopefully in better shape.

Great prices and great customer service. :)

Blurays are tougher, don't need resurfacing. I've never had a bad ps3 disc from them.


I've received a few PS3 discs with small but noticeable pits on the outer edge but it has never affected play. The durabis coating is supposed to make them more resistant to certain types of scratching but might have side benefits for other types of damage.

Purely speculation but I feel that PS3 games receive better care from Gamefly's users over the course of their rental period compared to 360.

Got my Mass Effect 3. It was scuffed up around the edge, but once it had the disc resurfaced, it worked great.

I agree, since the 360 has a larger userbase, meaning more potential ways a disc can get damaged from rent to rent. Plus the scratch resistant coating on blurays is what always makes me decide to go for the PS3 version instead.

That's a good point. Maybe I need to re-think my theory. I'm curious if people who rent from Gamefly, if their discs have chips on them as well.

They don't, or at least not when I've rented from them. Then again when I rent, I usually get them from Austin, TX and NOT from the Pittsburgh facility.

Every single PS3 game I've received from the PA has always had some varying degree of small chips, but I've had NO issues when playing them. It's a shame that out of the 20 or so GF games I've bought, I've never once had 1 game not come out of the PA facility.

Got arkham city today, email told me it was coming from LA but really came from PA.

Looks pretty scuffed up, including 2 small scratches on front label, as well as white circle on label just around the hole. Just installed it, so does that mean that it installed correctly that it is guaranteed to play all the way through with no problems?

Did you get it for PS3 or 360? If you got it for the 360 and installed it to hard drive then you should be able to play it completely without any issues.

Can't really comment on the PS3 version, never seen one that is scuffed up. Also most games on the PS3 don't fully install to the hard drive besides a small few.

It is a 360 copy. Thanks for the info, not too savvy with installs yet, just picked up a hard drive a few weeks ago

Does Gamefly still offer the email notification if a game becomes available again? I can't seem to find that option on a game I wanted to pick up, but is currently out of stock.

Thanks!
