Postbox Games Game Rental Review

Visit PostBoxGames SitePostBox Games site no longer functioned as of mid 2008, and we assume it went out of business. We keep this review as it was for posterity.

PostBox Games offer games rental for pretty much everything; PS2, PSP, XBox, XBox 360, GBA, Gamecube, Wii, Nintendo DS and PS3. They even say they are considering offering PC games in the future -- in which case they'd be the only company in business to do so to our knowledge. Unfortunately, they don't list how many titles in for each platform they stock, which makes comparison difficult.

Postbox Games feature one of the most comprehensive games rental sites in terms of ease of use -- the search engine and browsing operates by platform, genre and, unusually, publisher.

There are new releases, coming soon, hot games and featured games sections if your stuck for ideas on what to rent next.

They naturally have their problems; while surfing the site doing their initial review, their entire domain went down! Hopefully this is not a common occurrence. Their customer service reports are mixed, with some loving, some loathing the service, which is fairly common with these companies.

Prices: Postbox Games do offer a 10-day free trial, though its not advertised in huge letters, but you can find out more information in their FAQs section. Membership is at industry standard rates: £9.99 for one game at-a-time, £14.99 for two games at-a-time, and £19.99 for three games at-a-time.

Chris from Bath, August 9, 2007

I was a member of postbox games for around 18 Months, I cancelled my membership in May after waiting around a month to get games sent trough een though I had around 10 in my list!!!, but Postboxgames.co.uk have started taking money from my account, in fact they decided to take 30 out for no apparent reason, So i got in contact with them an spoke to the owners wife and left a message to find no return call, I have left several emails and answer messages and still no reply and even worse no money!!!! I have now involved consumerdirect.

I stupidly signed up and was charged on the 8th day of the "free trial", got 2 of 3 games on the 7th day and the last game is still MIA! STAY WELL CLEAR. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. I was charged during the "free trial" and after more than 15 emails, I only got 1 response which was copy and pasted from their terms of use, and funny enough actually supported MY ARGUEMENT but they are still refusing to return my money. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. None of my calls have been answered except for 1, by a guy who did not know what he was doing and had kids kicking and screaming in the background. I really dont understand how they can continue operating or why someone would even say on their review that their "customer services was helpful". Seriously?

Richard from Essex, August 24, 2007

No complaints thus far and I found Postbox customer service to be excellent when dealing with any problems that I have had. There will always be problems renting games online as everyone is reliant on the postal service to do their job correctly. The mark of a good company is how they deal with these problems and Postbox Games gets the thumbs up from me in that regard.

Mel from Hull , June 6, 2007

Thinking this site looked reputable I signed up for my free 10 day trial membership...no games received! I sent an email regarding technical issues i.e. the website kept logging me out so I couldn't add any games to my rental list, which to date I have received no reply to! I did manage to get two games on there but have not received either of them, or any correspondence. I am concerned after reading two similar reviews above so I am going to phone them asap and cancel my membership as they clearly aren't going to respond to my email!!
