Just wondering if there is anything like Gamefly available in Canada. I seem to remember seeing something a few months back, but then I forgot to follow up on it.

I used GA in the past, good service and good price when compared to the local Video Club.
Be sure to use 2 Games at time because 1 isn't really worthy.

Anyone else in Canada try this? It looks a lot like gamefly, but I'd like a couple of other opinions on it before I make the jump (no offense to arcane101, but it is your first post and all...). At any rate, thanks for the link!!

It was it's first post and it got removed because he asked for referral... :pinch:
The site is: www.gameaccess.ca.

Btw, just a little thing, when you use the Trial time, they will ask you for your Credit Card, and they will take $50 then will return it.
I just tell you in case it got like me and you don't see immediately that it's back in your CC billing.
Oh, you need to have your shipping address the SAME as the address on your CC (if you can, add another address will work)
Just telling you, that will avoid calling them like I did.

im thinking of signing up, but i want to hear some opinions first, because to me it seems like you pick a list of games you want and they send them as they get them so you dont always get the game you want right away and if almost everything on your list is popular you might get major delays in you getting your games

That was my major concern as well. Does Gamefly work this way as well? Most people that use Gamefly seem very happy with it, so if it works exactly the same then I don't have much of a concern.

Anyone who has used gameaccess, did you find you got the games you wanted in a timely manner?

Any further opinions on it would be appreciated by those of us thinking of trying it out.

I've been using it for about 6 months now, and I am reasonably happy with it. The service is fantastic, I don't think I have recieved a template email yet, and I even got them to add the game to the catalogue.

The speed of recieving games is quite slow, as I am on the west coast and the shipping center is in the east, but that isn't their fault. 4 or 5 days for going across Canada isn't bad, IMO.

Getting games on the top of your list -- not great. I have an American friend w/ GameFly and he gets newer releases, faster. If you need to play the latest game the week it comes out -- GameAccess isn't for you.

If you want gamerscore, GameAccess is great.

I would recommend it, or at least give it a try, just make sure not to lock into any contracts. (that's what I did, and it's quite reassuring knowing that I can cancel at any time)

You should try iPlayiTrade.com, it's a players built market.
