If I wanted it that badly I'd have pre-ordered it.

Grats on getting it extra early, though!

I'm not sure I'm even earning points any more. They've stopped telling me via email when I've earned some, anyway.

Yes. I've noticed that also.

I think they've made it slightly more sensible because, before the change, I'd get over 100/200 points for the shortest of delays. Talkin' 'bout less than a day's worth of a delay! How is that even a delay?! :lol:

You can check your points (and the date they were awarded to you) on the regular version of their site. (Probably on mobile version too, but I've never used it so can't say.)
I haven't had any new points since March 23, though that may have to do with the fact that most of my rentals are new releases sent out on their release date or, bonus games.

Yeah I'm fairly sure I could afford a free month in no time at all. Wasn't it a day without a game meant a free day was earned? I can't remember.

Can't remember.

My last (and only) free month:
17-08-2015 / Point Redeemed / Free Rental Month / -1599 points

Most points I earned at any one time, with a service guarantee, was 346 in 06/2015. How many points do you have now? When did you last spend them? Maybe you have to spend more points before you go back to earning at same rate as you used to.

Just to hammer home the point I made earlier; I just received this notification in my inbox:

Service Guarantee - Uncharted 4 A Thiefs End +720 Points

:? :lol:

Yeah a free day per day not renting. I've had Uncharted sent out on a free month and to up myself to the next package (to get Doom at the same time) is £3.10.

I use their rental holiday feature all the time, too.

I can't remember the last time I bought a console game on release.

Just after some thoughts on dispatch - I had Gravity Rush HD sent out on the 10th...it's the 12th and still no game.
How long does it take you guys to get them from their 'dispatched' date?

Probably Royal Mail taking their time rather than Boomerang

Within the two days. More often than not after day of dispatch if it was sent out first thing. (Like new releases often are.)

Their FAQ says to get in touch with 'em if it doesn't turn up after 7 days.

I've never had anything take longer than 2 days.

Managed to get Doom today, which was a nice surprise. I've come to expect things the next day, recently.

Doom turned up today and I've played through the small first section and I think it's safe to say I'm going to like this.

I've been meaning to reply to this :fp: Totally agree. Was really disappointed with Primal. I think the lack of gunplay / interesting alternatives really worked against it. I hope they go back to a modern setting with the next one.

God I hope I like it :lol: I played the demo on PS3 and quite enjoyed. Never got around to buying the full game. :fp:

No to the Paypal question. As for the only rental service, I believe it's the only console-game-specific rental service still kicking, but there's other rental services out there.
