As a huge Halo fan, I have always been a fan of online companies that offer Xbox 360 game rentals, along with game rentals for other systems. I believe that it is an amazing alternative to purchasing games or renting from the local video store.
The console gaming industry is continually growing each year. The systems and games are being shipped all over the world to new countries. Development teams are popping up all over the world creating a vast number of games with unique ideas and creativity that has never before been heard of in a video game.
Of course, this is great news for us gamers. Every year, we can expect more and more unique games that immerse us in ways we have never experiences before. For example, do you remember the first time that you played 007 Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64? It was an amazing game at its time and is heralded as one of the best first-person shooters ever created. As the years pass on, we can continue to expect newer, better games with greater visuals than the years before. As new consoles release every 4-5 years, we can continue to expect greater power, rendering, objects on screen, colors, and more.
One of the reasons that I am a major promoter of online video game rentals is because I love to play every game that comes out. If a game is releasing next week, I want to be one of the first to play it! Now, if I were to buy every game, how much would that cost me every month? Hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. This is why I choose to subscribe to video game rental services. I get 2 games out at any time for as long as I want. I even get brand new games the day they are released. When I’m finished with a game, I can simply toss it back into the envelope and set it back to the company. If I wish to purchase the game, I can pay a discounted fee and keep it! But, I rarely buy games because I am always playing new ones. I, of course, own the Halo games and a few other games that multiple people can play, but the majority of the games I play go back in the mail.
My goal here is to open your mind and create thinking in your brain. If you are buying at least 4 games a year, you could save a lot of money by renting online. I used to by at least 1-2 games a month! Now, I pay a fraction of that per year to play all of the games I could ever imagine! It, truly, is great.
