GameFly Remains Confident in Light of Qwikster Game Rentals
Up until now, GameFly hasn’t had a whole lot competition in the games distribution realm. With the bombshell announcement that Netflix dropped yesterday regarding their new mail-based service Qwikster, consumers will now finally have another option for renting games, though GameFly doesn’t seem to be phased by the competition.
The video game mail-based delivery service released the follow statement in response to the Netflix announcement:
GameFly has expanded steadily over the past nine years by focusing exclusively on video gamers. We are the only retailer offering games physically and digitally for both rental and purchase. Gamers can try before they buy, choosing from new releases and classic titles that span the last decade. GameFly has more than 8000 games for 10 console and handheld systems to choose from, and over 1500 Windows/Mac games are available for download.
GameFly is the leading video game rental service, and we have continued to grow even as Blockbuster and Redbox increased their investment in console games.
It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see how much of a threat Qwikster will pose to GameFly. One thing is for certain though, competition is always good for the consumer.
