While purchasing video games may quickly add up, if you’re a budget player looking to reduce the clutter associated with too many games while also saving money, GameFly may be a suitable choice for you. The monthly membership service curates a selection of hundreds of titles for gamers and movie fans alike, including new and used video games for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS5, PS4, PS3, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo Switch, as well as earlier systems.
GameFly’s huge collection includes both popular new titles and hard-to-find retro video games, as well as a sizable variety of Blu-ray and DVD rentals.
Similarly to Netflix in its early years, GameFly delivers tangible copies of video games and movies to subscribers. Subscribers pick games on the GameFly website, and they are sent to your address via First-Class Mail in roughly 2-5 business days (warning: customers have experienced longer wait times). After receiving your game or movie, keep it for as long as you like and return it for free using the supplied pre-paid envelopes.
Currently, GameFly is giving a 30-day free trial, which allows you to evaluate the company’s collection of gaming rentals and other services without having to spend anything up front. After the month-long trial period expires, the Standard plan costs $15.95 per month and includes unlimited access to games and movies rentals, new releases, and rentals in 4K UltraHD. Additionally, you’ll receive $5 in GameFly reward coupons for each month you’re a member, which you can use to purchase new video games or keep the ones you rent. Additionally, you’ll receive six weeks of GameLock, a new tool that allows you to lock in new titles on your wish list, ensuring that you’ll receive them.
The standard plan only allows for one rental at a time, but for $13.50 a month for the first three months and $22.95 per month thereafter, you can receive two rentals at a time. Additionally, there is the Elite, two-rental package. It includes all of the benefits of the Standard two-rental plan, as well as early access to new releases. If you’re searching for a more affordable option, choose the Budget plan, which is only $5 per month for the first three months ($8.95 thereafter) and includes unlimited game and movie rentals.
If you’re looking for a standalone movie subscription, GameFly offers many alternatives, including the Blu-ray & DVDs tier, which costs $8.95 per month (after a 30-day free trial) and includes unlimited rentals and new movies. At $13.95 a month, the 4K Elite plan includes all of the benefits of the Blu-ray & DVD plan, plus 4K UltraHD rentals and $5 GameFly reward vouchers. Additionally, GameFly offers various additional single-rental movie options, as well as a two-movie plan for $11.00 per month for the first three months ($18.95 per month thereafter). There are no late penalties, free delivery is included, and you may cancel at any moment. Additionally, if you enjoy the rental game or film, you may purchase it at a discounted pre-owned price. If you are dissatisfied with your rental, just return it and GameFly will expeditiously send you another title in your queue at no additional fee.
The seemingly endless list of video game rentals includes “Outriders,” “Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury,” “Ghost of Tsushima,” “Resident Evil Village,” “F1 2021,” and “Golden Force,” among others; while “Samurai Warrior 5,” “The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening,” “Marvel’s Avengers,” “Star Wars: Squadrons,” and “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Mile
On the movie front, GameFly offers a big variety. From “Mortal Kombat,” “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” and “Spiral,” to 4K UHD restorations of classics such as “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” GameFly is releasing a slew of new titles in the next months, including “A Quiet Place Part II,” “The Birthday Cake,” “Luca,” and “Those Who Wish Me Dead.”
Physical versions of video games, gaming controllers, gaming peripherals, and Funko collectibles are also available via GameFly. Once your free trial with GameFly has begun, you may choose to improve your gaming equipment.
