I admit I hadn’t heard of GetGaming until their press release popped into my inbox recently. But they’ve been around since March.
It works like US company Gamefly. When you sign up, you choose a bunch of games that you’re interested in renting. As the games in your queue become available, you get sent them one at a time. When you’re done with one game, you post it back and they send you the next one.
It costs $22.95 per month for unlimited rentals.
You can also, if you prefer, rent one game for 14 days at $11.95.
Their rental library includes all current consoles (360, PS3, PS2, Wii), both current handhelds (PSP, DS) and even the PC. And the games themselves range from the latest big releases (Mafia II, Kane & Lynch 2, Dragon Quest IX) to casual games and older budget reissues.
As I said, I hadn’t heard of GetGaming until recently, so I haven’t had the chance to test drive it. But I’m wondering about that unlimited rental deal: do you reckon you would play enough games to make it worthwhile, considering you don’t get to keep them once your subscription expires?
