first let me state that this would probably be more successful in the polls and opinion thread, this was stated publicly by the CEO of netflix so it is not entirely rumor. okay onto the question
i have heard a lot of different opinions on this. some are staying with netflix, and others are jumping off the boat as soon as possible. their are several things to look at first and prominently lets look at shipping speed. it is a known fact that netflix ships games faster than gamefly, due to the service centers. the only way to compete with netflix in this regard is to build more shipping centers. another thing people compare netflix to is how they are always getting a game several months after it is out. where as netflixs it is pretty cheap. lets analyze this problem first. games on average are three times more expensive than DVDs also where as a DVD can be watched and sent back the next day, video games take a lot longer to wrap up i do think it will provide comp. but i believe it will not kill gamefly.
well that is a bit broad. if you could specify what exactly you want to know about the game we could narrow down your search and you may be more successful. all i can really do is point you in the right direction.
+these are a good source because they generally hold themselves to a higher level than websites do
+the writing is generally better written
-the information is not as frequent
-you will always have to pay for them
Examples: gameinformer, playstation magazine, edge,
+they can be updated almost instantly
+information is sometimes unofficial

+specialization of sites
-more annoying ads
-some info is rumor and thus not accurate

+people know a lot about game
+proactive in finding new information on game
-can often believe rumor as gospel
examples: KoAR forums, wikia, 38 fans, 38 games, 38 watch
no, the most you can do is get rid all games on your queue except the one you want also make sure all of your games are sent back. i would not recommend this because if you are not in the first lot, then you may have to wait weeks before you receive the game you desire
I assume that the primary reason was to open a competing option against steam, this though is a mammoth of a task as steam and valve our much loved on the PC by gamers.
getting this service to thrive will become even more difficult as publishers are already isolating PC games to their distribution serve(EA Origins). the bigger target audience i believe are those who use Gamefly on the console but occasionally play games on PC.
another reason I've heard of is that it is similar to netflix in that it is much cheaper to distribute games via the internet, then paying for shipping cost of all games
