Ranking of Xbox 360 Rentals

 

As the first of the next gen consoles, several sites have made it a priority to acquire every game released in the UK, so the customer is spoiled for choice. We've bumped Gamesfrenzy and Gametart up a notch given their particularly good Xbox 360 support.

Value Rating: Includes prices at all game rental levels and our assessment of what you actually get for your money.

Design Rating: How well the website/interface is designed--ease of use.

Service Rating: This measure of customer service--which includes game rental turnaround times--is the least "scientific" rating, relying on reports we've gathered from the net and personal experience.

Titles: The total available game titles. Bear in mind the number of formats the games rental company has though, as if it only deals with three consoles then a couple of hundred titles is actually a lot.

Films: Some of the companies are primarily DVD rental companies that also have a limited catalogue of games too - we wouldn't recommend these if it is games you're really interested in, but if you are a movie fan too then these can represent good value.

Free Trial: These vary widely from a week to a month. Be sure to look at the details of each site if you're pursuing a free trial, as many have strict requirements for cancellation. If you're very cheeky you can "free trial hop" down the list and try them all for free for months...

Prices: In pounds per month for standard, unlimited 1 to 3 games out-at-a-time subscriptions. This does not include volume discounts sometimes offered when you pay for a year in advance, which are noted in the individual company reviews.
