Gamefly Enters Streaming Realm and We Love It!

Recently the game rental service Gamefly has decided to dip their proverbial toe into their own game streaming service. We've all seen so many try to go down this road and so many fail or take a huge loss. Yes, I'm talking to you Sony and your clusterfuck that is Playstation Now. What I love about the Gamefly streaming service is it's not trying to jump into the deep end too soon. It's starting slow and leaving room to grow naturally. Playstation Now was doomed from the start with its weird pricing system, the lack of some of the big name games that people would love to play now being available for people that pay subscriptions with the expectations of having this capability which lead to many people (me included) canceling the Playstation Now subscriptions at the end of the trial period. What I can appreciate about Gamefly is where they are starting. They are starting on the Amazon Fire TV platform. It's a smaller market which gives you a chance to grow and listen to complaints and adjust accordingly. They'll be able to fine tune and adjust as necessary and once they have perfected that, maybe they can go to the bigger consoles. Also, where Gamefly is succeeding is the packages they have created and the ability to be forthcoming and outright with the expectations of what you are getting with these packages. They specifically tell you what games you are going to get with the packs available so there's no surprise or disappointment later. And with Netflixesque pricing it is definitely an opportunity for a grand-slam. So for all gamers that are waiting for the Netflix of Gaming, we may just be on the verge of seeing that.
