Retailer punts new videogame 'rentals' for a fiver

Fortnight deadline

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

High street retailer Game introduced a scheme today which allows customers to rent videogames for a fiver - provided they return the title within two weeks.

The Game "Fun for a Fiver" offer kicks off today and runs until the end of February.

Punters that buy selected titles will be able to hand the game back within two weeks and get £5 less than the original purchase price. If they miss the deadline, they'll only be offered the standard going rate price of a trade-in title.

New releases available in the offer include Final Fantasy XIII 2, The Darkness 2, Soul Calibur V, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Tekken 3DS.

More will be on the way soon, Game promised.

While customers must still fork out the full outlay of a game initially, the Fun for a Fiver scheme means avid gamers could save a few bob - provided they haven't already signed up to a convenient online rental subscription, of course... ®
