Hardly a day goes by where you don't hear about ways to save your hard earned dollars and I don't have to tell anyone that where gaming is concerned those hard earned dollars fly out the window pretty fast. I'm feeling the pain having just invested in an Xbox360 Elite (now officially a two console household with a Wii as well). The hardware alone will put you in the poorhouse. And then $60 games? :(

I just assume that most people are going the gamefly route these days vs. buying retail. What's the consensus here?

I've actually been a long time gamefly user and it doesn't take long to realize the savings going the rental vs. retail route. Just by way of sending lousy games back I've essentially paid for the cost of my membership a dozen times over.

The truth of the matter is there are few games worth the $60 price tag they command. Yes, there are some exceptions but even for those I always get them at a steep discount from gamefly. And since I'm a long-time subscriber there's the additional $5 off with gamefly dollars and the "long time user" 10% discount and this is for games that are already marked down a good 20%.

I just can't see any other option unless you're filthy stinkin rich and in a time where you literally hear about businesses closing their doors on a daily basis gamefly seems to be going gangbusters which would point to a whole new approach to how people game.

Just some food for thought. I just see the gamefly model getting bigger and bigger in an economy like this.
