Maybe now they can reduce their turn around time,and buy enough new copies to go around of a really hyped release.

Yeah, i canceled the service because i hardly ever get the games on the top of the queue. The games have used price of $15, i get them w/o problems. Of course, then again, i can just buy the game for $15 and don't have to worry about returning it, lol.

I hope the service gets better, i might join it again if that's the case.

That is the main reason i left game fly both time i was a member.i would never ever get the games at the top of my queue.and i would have them up weeks before their release.
