Renting video games has finally evolved. I remember the old days of visiting Blockbuster upon a new games release only to be disappointed by the sight of empty shelves, I had gotten there too late to purchase the game I wanted. Fortunately due to the expansion of video game rental into online rental, this is no longer a problem. We will take a few moments and explore a little bit about why you don’t have to drive to your local video rental store anymore. Online game rental services enable you to select not only your favorite video games, but peripherals, accessories, and even entire game consoles. Great, isn’t it?
There are several things to consider when choosing the right game rental service for you. The first thing you want to do is readily look over the five factors below. You want to make sure you choose a service that not only has the best possible game selection, but also provides an excellent customer service.
Here are the five factors:
Available wait times- this is important. The last thing you want to happen is you waiting for a game to show up to the neighborhood and realize that the time given to return the game is 4-8 weeks.
Search diversified- This is the single most important factor. Make sure you choose a service that not only offers you a single game from mass produce, but also offers you diversified collection of games.
matching mostly your favorite console- If you have several consoles like Xbox, Xbox 360, or PlayStation 3 already, you may choose from similar service providers.
inerational services- this may include (but not limited) mail the games directly to your home, return shipping, and even credit card facility.
Those five factors are the most critical to consider when choosing. The other factors are less important, but choosing an online video game rental outfit that complements your particular set of gaming requirements is a very good way to go.
Fortunately, the competition in this business is getting fierce. This means that you can have the service of one of the top providers, and often a number of services from which to choose.
Here are the top scenario’s:
You’re a die-hard Xbox gamer and enjoy only those games that EA has licensed. Your local store has the right game in stock every time. You just wish there were other people like you, that can play this game and can understand what it is about. So you pay a monthly fee to join their plan and become their player. One fine day while you are playing a game you come across a game that you really like and have fallen in love with, well of course you tell your friends about it. Then you tell all your friends and relatives who also play this game, well they might not have heard about it, or only a few actually, but still they are going to need a copy of this game. And then you move on to the next game again.
Now let’s say your friends have heard about this new game and they want to play it, well they might just have a copy, or a friend who borrowed it from them, or it came from your brother/sister, now you have to wait for the original to get here, then you have to make another trip to the mailbox and wait some more, then finally the game will be here and you will be able to play your multiplayer game with your friends.
Now if you just can’t stand the wait time to get a game, then you can try to rent the game. There are sites that allow you to rent the game first, and then if you like the game then you can buy it, most of the time they have a special discount, so you will save a lot of money, especially when you download the game as soon as it becomes available.
The best way to see how fast and far this game will take you is to see if you get a full LAN play pass. If you do, then this will mean a lot to you, and it is well worth it to see how many LAN games it can bring you, and how fast they will go.
If you are considering renting a game, then I hope this will help you, and I wish you all the best with whatever gaming endeavor you are involved.
