The lights are on
Movie rental and streaming company Netflix has announced that it is stopping previously announced plans to rent video games by mail.
The company had previously announced that it would be offering game rentals at the same time it stated its intention to split its physical and streaming movie rental services. Eventually this plan was dropped, and now it looks like renting games is also joining it on the scrap heap.
So the next time Netflix announces something, best to take it with a grain of salt.
Email the author Matthew Kato, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
so are developers okay with gamefly or what?
They just completely screwed themselves up with that stupid Qwikster crap.
Well that stinks.
Geez, my faith is lost on this company. Too bad there 'Watch Instantly' service rocks.
I hate netflix. Poor choice in new titles, and not nearly enough HD content available.
All that matters is the excellent streaming service. I hardly ever watch proper television anymore.
Netflix needs to stop doing this
they should really just change back to what they were doing before all this crap them customers will be happy and they would be somewhat redeamed
I heard that they plan on dropping DVDs completely in the near future.
well thats a bummer
Boooooooo...Netflix cannot be trusted. I will probably drop them now as I was only hanging on to my crappy selection of streaming for the supposed addition of game rentals.
this doesnt even bother me.
Unless of course they announce a price increase
