    I normally trade in my games to buy new ones and I'm guessing this will save me a bit of money on a monthly basis. Probably still buy a few upcoming games like Bad company though.

    I'm using LOVEFILM, which you'll know since you're English. I think it's something like £10.97 to have one disc at home, but you can keep it until you decide to send it back.

    I'm looking at swapgame at the moment. £9.99 for one at a time or £14.99 for two at a time.

    Probably go for one at a time but it would be nice to play another whilst waiting for them to swap.

    Just go for the two game deal, you might get one game that takes a long time and you can play it while flying through the shorter one when you're bored of the long one.

    I have no idea. I have about 18 in my list but about 6 of those are due to come out in January. Most of the current releases are games Ive always wanted to play but never wanted to buy :rofl:

    Let me know how it goes dude.

    I've been on LOVEFILM for a month now (Just finished the free trial) and I've only had 2 disc (One of them was a DVD (Six Feet Under, couldn't find them on net)) and Mario Bros. I still haven't sent Mario Bros back because I'm going for all the stars with a friend, but I think it took something like 2-3 days for it to come after sending SFU back.

    How does the rental service work over at SwapGame? On LOVE FILM it tells you to have 10 titles in your queue, and put them in order of importance. Mario Bros was medium, whilst AC2 was high, and I got Mario Bros. It seems pretty decent so far, but It would be better if I actually got the game i wanted the most.

    Aight cool. LoveFilm's 1 disc unlimited rental is £10.99 (A quid dearer than SwapGame I think) but the 2 discs is the same price at £14.99. LoveFilm has a package for 3 disc at a time for £18.99 though, I didn't see that at SwapGame.

    I read something about being able to keep the game you like at SwapGame for a discounted price of the retail. That sounds cool.

    Ah, that's a pretty cool system. I might swap to SwapGame if LoveFilm dissapoints me after this month.

    I signed up for gamefly back in August to catch up on a back log of games I didn't want to purchase. While it's cool to have during the summer dry spell, it's hard to justify having a subscription during the fall rush.
