    Screenselect are great for movies, but must have low stock for games - so wouldnt go there.

    Thus far SwapGame have been great :)

    Swapgame are more expensive, and with Screenselect there is always the option of also renting a movie should you want it.

    SS haven't been too bad for me at all.

    I'm with Swapgame, i've been with them for a less than a month and i'm on my 3rd game, and they have sent them in the order that i wanted them.

    The only problems I have is with the site layout, and instead of being able to select a few games and add them, you have to select each one and add it to the list.

    I'm with Boomerang. Get new releases the day before (Burnout & Hitman), fair price of tenner a month for unlimited games and there's a free trial.

    For my money theere isnt enough worth renting yet. Its more economical to buy from the MM and re sell on ebay. Ive nearly always made a profit on games too.

    I signed up to SwapGame after McDaniel recommended them to me, they sent 2 games out, 1 got lost in the post, contacted them and they were fine about it.

    Not only that, they gave me a further 10 day trial:
    So I certainly can't fault them for that, excellent service. Also, the next game was sent out on Friday and arrived Saturday morning.

    The only problem I have is with the envelopes they come in, they look like junkmail circulars so you have to be careful that no one else throws them out.

    I don't mind paying a little extra for excellent service (thats why I continue to shop at Gameplay) and I can't fault SwapGame.

    Been with SwapGame about 2 months and probably had around 5 games, all have been sent out straight away after a game has been sent back.

    No complaints at all from me :)

    Screen Select are terrible for 360 games, just don't bother.

    I've got a list of about 20 games that I never bought or had the chance to play. I wont buy them now as its not worth it, so renting is an ideal option as I get to try all the games that have been released.

    Think I will only be buying the most anticipated AAA titles from now on, anything on the periphery will be a rental.

    Exactly the same as me, I have about 9 or 10 major titles on order for purchase (Dead Rising, Gears of War, Shadowrun, Test Drive Unlimited, Alan Wake etc...) but I will rent any sports games or alternate games (The Outfit, Over G Fighters etc...).

    Renting is the perfect option for things like that.

    I currently have Quake 4 and RidgeRacer from them on rental.
    I've done pretty well for 360 games from SS.

    I have had loads of 360 games on my screenselect list. It was months before they sent any, and then they send 2 at once.

    I got Call of Duty 2 from SS. They're averaging one game a week with me. Looking forward to playing this ce soir! :D
