GameFly Now Selling New Games
If you aren't a GameFly member just yet, you might want to sign up now, especially if you want to nab - and own - new games quickly.
GameFly has rapidly expanded their services over the past few years, as they've quickly produced a variety of new enticing options and features for consumers and renters alike. As of now, you can purchase brand new games at their official site, and their available stock is guaranteed to grow over time. For now, you can grab all sorts of titles on multiple platforms and if you've been a long-time member, you get an automatic benefit. If you wish to "Keep It," the price for someone who has been a GameFly member for over a year is cheaper than normal but other than that, you really won't be saving much. If you include the shipping costs, the overall price of new games aren't really any different from standard retail price tags at GameStop, but you might get a little break. It'll probably depend on how old the game is; this is something we'll have to examine over time. Ideally, members will get extra advantages and besides, how many times have you rented a game and said, "hey, I need this in my collection now"? GameFly wants to make the entire process easier, it seems.
Still, I say they need more copies of huge titles. Many times, you'll be waiting for quite a long time to play the latest and greatest, unless you get a little lucky right off the bat.
