I had made a post a while back about how I had struggled finding a good service that provided video games by mail. I came out against Gamefly in those comparisons. I had not used the service since I had posted about it. Since then, Gamefly has opened a new distribution center in Washington state. I ended up resubbing to Gamefly about three months ago since there were quite a few games that had come out that I wanted to play. These were games I was interested in trying out but not interested enough to buy. I will since that since I resubscribed the shipment speed is better. I tend to get games shipped to me fairly fast and the FastReturn system they use with the Postal Service is applied to almost every game I ship back. One area that’s still lacking however is inventory of new release games. If you’re lucky enough in the ship-return equation to have a new release shipped to you on its release week, you’ll get to play the game. If you miss that small window, be prepared for a long wait until you can get to play it. Games that have been out of 3 months or more still have Medium to Low availability. Granted the inventory stock depends on how good the game is (better game, people keep it at home longer) but it still seems too long.
