Every gamer, at one point or another, has gone through the “rent a new game challenge”. Of course I am referring early morning race to the local video store to try to scoop up 1 of the 3 copies they have for whatever video game just released… It happens ALL THE TIME. Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don’t. Unfortunately it is only one of the things that you need to put up with when renting video games from a local rental store. People put up with issues like this all the time and have learned to live with it because honestly there really hasn’t been a better option… until now.
Like everything else on the web, online game rental services are beginning to slowly dominate their in-store competitors. There are many reasons for this and many business strategies that can be implemented to beat out competing companies. However, with that said, there is one sure fire way to dominate in your industry and that is to take everything your competitor does and do it better. The major players in the online game rental business do exactly that.
Have you ever gone out to a local rental store to secure a copy of a game you’ve been wanting to try? Great, you get there and it is actually in stock. You grab it, pay for it and bring it home. This is where you throw the game in your system and get a big fat “cannot read disk” on your screen… Yeah, the disk is scratched beyond any playable boundary. Not only are you furious by now but you get to take the that much anticipated ride back to the rental store. When you get there you know what’s coming because you know that you grabbed the last copy of that game.
When you rent video games online you side step all of these frustrating and time consuming problems. You have a full range of games to choose from and an inventory that can facilitate the gaming industry’s demand. They don’t carry 3 copies of a brand new game they carry thousands. They don’t stop offering a game after it has been out for a few months but rather keep a high enough inventory to quench those old game thirsts that we have from time to time. In many cases you will have the option to buy previously used games and discounts even greater than the poultry $ 5 or $ 10 that you may get at places like GameStop.
