    Game Rental

    Has anyone tried the Boomerang game rental service in the UK?

    http://www.boomerangrentals.co.uk/

    £11 per month = 1 game at a time inc. new releases, no restrictions on number of games each month.
    £10 per month = 1 game at a time but less likely to get new releases, no monthly restrictions
    £8 per month = 1 game at a time, releases over 3 months old, max. 2 different games per month
    £4 per month = 1 game at a time, releases over 6 months old, max. 1 game title per month


    Do you reckon that is worth it considering a new game costs around £50


    I used rent games through LoveFilm, before Amazon bought them out and cancelled that service.

    I used Blockbuster loads when they were around. It was local in the high street and pretty cheap to rent games. £11pm doesn't seem to bad, although I'd prefer to have a couple games to make it worthwhile.

    They do a (from memory) £15 deal for two discs at the same time.

    There is a 21 day trial so I might give it a shot, although it doesn't include any games from last 3 months in the trial.

    Seems reasonable although I fear the game will never be played before it has to be returned.

    Too true - still at least you wouldn't have paid £60 to not play the game
