If you have heard of the NetFlix online service for DVD rentals, you might have considered subscribing to NetFlix for games. However, although NetFlix is the most popular option for online DVD rentals, video games are not part of what it offers. The good news is that NetFlix is not the only company out there, and it does not have a monopoly on the market. Many other online rental services have emerged that are similar to NetFlix, and they often focus on games in addition to movies.
If you visited NetFlix for games but found that they did not have any, consider NetFlix’s largest competitor, GamezNFlix. GamezNFlix offers no late fees and due dates, just like NetFlix, but actually has lower prices and, the biggest benefit for many, thousands of game titles in addition to movies. The standard plan of three games or DVDs out at one time costs $17.25, while the four plan is $21.95, the five plan is $25.95, and the six plan is $32.95. If you’re looking for one company that can supply you with game and DVD rentals, GamezNFlix is an excellent choice.
Other companies to consider are Gamefly and Player’s Choice. Although they are newer and therefore smaller than NetFlix and GamezNFlix, they still boast a selection of 5,000 game titles, which is five times that of traditional movie and game rental stores. With Gamefly, once you pay the monthly subscription fee of $22/month, you can rent two games at a time. It also offers a 1 and 3 at a time rental plan, allowing you to choose your preferred cost. If you decide you would like to buy a game, you can “keep it” or “buy it” by paying the low pre-played game price.
Player’s Choice offers slightly lower prices than Gamefly and a small selection of about 3,000 DVD titles, as well. Its 2 at a time rental plan is only $19.95/month. Customers also have the option to select from 1, 3, 4, and 5 at a time plans. Rentals usually have next day delivery. An additional feature of this company is the ability to rent actual gaming systems. This option allows customers to try out systems before they buy.
