    Does anyone use them?... I've seen a couple (UK) for about £12/month where you can rent unlimited games and have 2 at once. I used to be a member of lovefilm and loved renting films from that - ended up cancelling though (for other reasons)...

    I use boomerang rentals, if your interested, let me know and I get a free month. I pay £7.99 a month, but they have lots of different packages and Wii games in stock, your first 21 days are free.

    I went on lovefilm website before and noticed they had some games (ps2, xbox etc) but nothing for the Wii... there are a few websites that do this but they look very 'home-made' if you know what I mean so I'm a bit wary

    Yeah you gotta watch out for those.

    Maybe early next year the big Blockbusters will get some Wii games, theres not many out and demand is high so they might have a hard time getting some to put up for rent.

    They look ok.

    I don't really like renting games to be honest, I just prefer to get them and not worry about returning them etc.

    I know which games I will like and not like, if I miss judge I can just return it.

    Yeah but there are some places that won't let you return... where do you get your games from?

    It's fine renting stuff like this, I enjoyed using Lovefilm, make a big queue of films and they arrive every few days with a pre-paid envelope to send them back - easy :)

    I do block buster... If i like and don't complete: i buy.

    I suggest you do the same, think to yourself - will you play more than 2 games per month? If not then rent them out for a couple of nights at a time.

    I don't remember which one I used, it has been years.
    I didn't find it worth it. If I was a kid again when I had loads of free time it would be. I would get a game and then get busy and not get to it for days. Then it would suck and I'd send it back and 4-5 days later I'd get another one.

    I believe they have a separate program for games though, like I can go to my blockbuster and sign up for a GamePass.

    Online Games Rental - WhyBuyGames.com

    Hi,

    I have recently signed up with a games rental company called WhyBuyGames (www.whybuygames.com). I wanted to get games for my new WII and since joing with them I have had no problems at all. The games come within 48-78 hrs of me choosing them and when I have called their customer services team for an update on an order they have been very helpful.

    Definate one for the future.

    Hi Im Dan from South Wales, I am currently using http://www.boomerangrentals.co.uk/ They come with a number of payment options from £8/month to £16/month they even offer a 3 week free trail
    There is no late fee just like all the other online game/DVD sites, but Boomerang's games come super fast. From the day you send the game off (When you feel like) you can expect the next game ( What evers No1 in ya list) to come in 2 days. A very good investment especially when I've just got a Wii
