How Renting Games Online Works

Next gen consoles come with next gen graphics, next gen fun, and most importantly a next gen price tag! With most games now ranging from 60-80 dollars per video game, it’s obvious why renting video games online have exploded in the recent months. If you’re like me, and I know you are, you probably only play games once and then never touch them again. What a waste!

Maybe you are on the fence. Maybe you are new to this concept. Either way, you have a bit to learn and I’m glad to teach! Renting video games online is much like renting dvds online. If you’re not familiar with that concept either, it’s like going to your local movie rental shop and renting movies or video games. However, instead of actually having to get up and waste gas to go pick up a product you will probably only watch or play once, you get to do it ALL from the comfort of your own home! You can rent video games online with a simple click of a button and you can have them shipped to you within 2-3 days.

Too good to be true right? Lucky for you, it IS true!
You simply go to a video game rental site, sign up for a free trial (that way there’s nothing to lose on your end) and select a few games for them to send out. Within 48 hours you have yourself the hottest titles without having to break your wallet!

There couldn’t possibly by anything more, right? Wrong.
Renting games online from these clubs also gives you the luxury of not having to worry about returning them on time. You can keep them for (literally) as long as you want! If you were signed up to a conventional rental store, they would slap you with penalties as much as they possibly can. So rolling up back-due fees will never be something you have to worry about. Another luxury these rental clubs provide is the ability to play vintage games! It is very rare that you ever see a rental store offering games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 1, the original xbox, the dreamcast, etc. However, with these online clubs they provide you with virtually every game created for virtually every console created (even for some of you old school Atari fans!).

In closing, renting games online has saved me at least 1000 dollars by now (Think I’m lying? That’s about 10 games if you were to buy them at a store!). It is a very valuable service that for gamers – recreational players and addicted players alike – one les thing to worry about when trying to decide how we are going to get our next video game!
