St Louis, MO (PressExposure) May 20, 2009 -- Rent Games Now recently launched an online game rental service that conveniently delivers video games by mail. Owner Steve Thomas explains, âWe looked at successful services like Netflix and we thought why not offer that same type of convenient service to gamers?
Itâs a great business model; gamers rent games online, get their games by mail and send them back when theyâre done.â Rent Games Now is unique in that their online game rental service assesses no late fees and does not impose due dates for the return of games. Subscribers pay a flat monthly fee and can have either 1 or 2 games out per month depending on their plan.
Once the games are returned their next available choices are immediately shipped out. Steve Thomas elaborates, âIf thereâs one thing Iâve always hated about renting movies and games itâs due dates and late fees. I canât tell you how many times I was late returning a game or movie to a local video store due to traffic, weather or because it simply slipped my mind. We felt it was best to go with a business model that totally did away with due dates and late fees. Some games take longer to beat than others so why not allow people to keep them until they are finished with the game. That approach just makes more sense to us.â
Gamers apparently agree, as business for Rent Games Now has been steady since their launch.
