Default gamefly question

for those that have gamefly, if you have a new game say for example like dead space, which is releasing tomorrow. Do you get that game shipped out tomorrow? Or is there usually a short / long wait for a new release due to alot of people wanting to rent it, or does gamefly seem to have a ample supply of new games so you never wait?

I have been thinking about getting gamefly but not sure.

I live on the east coast so anybody who lives on the east coast how is the turnaround speed ? I know they just opened a new distribution center not long ago on the east coast.

Also, anybody who uses a game rental service besides gamefly please do tell and let me know what you think of it.


thanks

there's a dist center in pittsburgh, PA

if i have an open spot in my queue, i sometimes get games on their release date.
the nice thing is the "keep it" price for new titles is 48$ or so, toss in a 5$ coupon and i buy most of my titles from gamefly.

i used gameznflix for a while, their service is garbage.
i'd go weeks with open queue spots and they'd send nothing.

Good rule of thumb is to return a game prior to release, then empty out your queue. Hasn't failed me in getting a new release.

If you buy a game do you get the case and manual, or just whatever it originally came in?

If you buy the game, they ship the case and manual to you.

Sometimes they ship the day before release, like ive already got an email that saints row 2 is on its way. Dont think they are sending out dead space till the 16th though, atleast in my area.
