Games Rental More Popular Than Ever



Gametart.com, the UK's largest games rental service has seen a huge increase in customer numbers recently as games rental becomes an increasingly popular option amongst gamers.

According to Gametart.com the main reason for the increase in popularity of renting is the volume of titles that are now available. Stacks of new games come out every month and it's impossible for most gamers to afford even half the new games they fancy playing. Most people rent 2 games a month with Gametart.com. With rental costing just 43p per day, by renting rather than buying gamers save in the region of £700 per year.

Games rental also appears to have grown with the release of the Wii and the PS3. These are consoles with very wide ranging capabilities and different games use different aspects of what these machines can do. Many people have signed up to Gametart just to test the capabilities of their new consoles without having to pay a fortune for new games.

Rob Savin, Marketing Manager at Gametart.com, says, "The fact that so many more people are opening their eyes to the opportunity presented by games rental is brilliant. With consoles and games getting as expensive as they are now, rental offers people a really cost-effective way of playing every new game they want."
