When I was younger I remember being disappointed countless times by empty shelves at my local video game rental store. I would arrive anticipating playing the latest title only to be turned away because they were out of copies. Local rental stores simply do not have the square footage or budget to overstock their shelves with every hot new release that hits the gaming world. Fortunately for me and thousands of other gaming enthusiasts around the country we don’t have to worry about that anymore. Online game rental services have reshaped game rental for the better, and there’s no looking back. The benefits that come with renting video games online include lower price, better availability, and speedier service.There’s no need to spend $60 on a title you’ve never played, and there’s no need to drive all over town looking for a copy to rent. Online game rental services offer plans as low as $10 a month for unlimited game rental (1 game at a time), up to around $40 a month (5 games at a time). Talk about a no brainer, you can spend $60 on a chance game that you may not even like, or spend $10 and try out multiple games. It gets better. If you enjoy the games you are trying you can contact your provider and purchase it on the spot, usually for a reduced amount. The games come to you.With online game rental you have the ability to choose from over 6000 titles, from a vast array of systems. You don’t have to worry about games being out of stock, and you don’t have to worry about a lack of selection when you rent video games online. Most of these companies even offer an amazing selection of handheld games if you want to try out new and upcoming titles on your DS or PSP. You can choose from over 6000+ video games that are shipped directly to your house with no late fees or from a couple wire racks at your local rental store. It seems like an easy choice.Concerned about playing that brand new release the day it’s out? No worries there. As with local video game stores like Gamestop, online game rental companies like Gamefly receive games from publishers days before street release. This means that if you have selected your desired game on your list, they will ship it out to you so you can be playing that brand new title immediately. When you get bored of whatever game or games you are currently playing, send them back and the provider will immediately send you the next game on your list. It’s almost like having your personal video game butler.
