ffx13 has a low probability on gamefly, when do you think i could be expecting it to arrive. First time using gamefly, free 21 day trial with code '2military1'.

I'd guess not for a long while. That's the reason I cancelled my Gamefly subscription. When it comes to new games, I would often get shafted.

If I left my queue empty except for the game I wanted, I had to wait for a week and a half before they sent my game to me. Sometimes you might get lucky though.

It would take some real luck. I think they said awhile ago if the game has low availability there is like a 20-30% chance that it will be shipped to you. Don't expect them to send you a copy of FFXIII for a good while.

I dunno. I been using gamefly for almost a year now and I've got all the new releases the day after in the mail. I just keep my list empty except for the game I want and turn in the game I previously rented 3-5 days before the game releases. Works everytime for me

thats the reason i canceled with them, their service sucks, slow shipping, never enough new games in stock, i only recommend them if theres older games that u wanna catch up on u never got to play, they have no problem rushing old games to u

If you have the game in your queue before it releases they will send it out the day before almost without fail. 13 is was shipped out to my dorm at noon earlier today.

On my Gamefly account it says that FF XIII is " At Home" which means itll be here on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. It did however take over a week for me to get Heavy rain due to "Low Availability"!

If you still want to try a rental service, but just don't like Gamefly for whatever reason, you should check out Gamerang. I signed up for them last month and love it so far. It takes about two days for me to get a game, where from Gamefly it was usually about 4~. Also, they seem to be good about new releases; at least, I'm supposed to be getting my rental of Heavy Rain from them tomorrow, which is about as new as they come.
