LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking for one great gift that every
video game fan would love to get? A gift certificate for GameFly
(www.gamefly.com), the leading video game rental service, is the no-fail gift
for any son, daughter, father, niece, nephew, brother, sister or grandchild
who loves to play video games.
With the recent launch of the Xbox 360(TM) and the success of handheld
devices like the PSP(TM), video games are high on many holiday gift lists this
year. According to the National Retail Federation, video games are the No. 1
holiday toy gift for boys this year and No. 5 for girls.
GameFly gift certificates have become a favorite among gift-givers and
gift recipients. "I used to get all of the wrong games for Christmas," said
Tony Heistand, a 16 year-old GameFly subscriber from Antioch, Calif. "I'd get
either a great game or a lame game for the wrong system. Now I just tell
everyone to get me a gift certificate to GameFly. Why ask for just one game
when you can get the choice of thousands of games?"
The press seems to agree: The New York Post said of difficult holiday gift
giving, "Can't decide? Give 'em GameFly.com ... ," and Electronic Gaming
Monthly said, "The onslaught of holiday titles makes it difficult to pick just
one. Membership to a mail-based game-rental service like GameFly, fortunately,
makes sampling game after game as easy as pressing Reset."
With a choice of one- to 12-month increments, there's a GameFly gift
certificate to fit every budget. Gift certificates start at $21.95 for a
one-month subscription and are available online at www.gamefly.com. GameFly
carries more than 3,000 games for the seven major video game
consoles -- Xbox(TM), Xbox 360, PlayStation(R) 2, GameCube(TM), Game Boy(TM)
Advance, Nintendo DS(TM) and PSP - including more than 200 UMD movies for PSP.
