You know, since February I sat quietly on the sides while I watched my investment take a nice steady dive into the sewer.Now mind you, I'm not complaining about the loss, I knew what I was getting into here. What I cannot stand is the banal, inane, false optimism and pumping up of a stock that has turned out to be a dog, and you guys know who you are with these constant tales of accumilations, and "runs". C'mon, this company is so poorly managed it's a wonder it's still here. Lets look back shall we? when the site came out, it was a disaster built by subscribers. Then, we get the "new Site". which worked barely at all when it finally launched, preceeded by stories of how IBM built them a "bad server". Let me tell you something guys and gals, I do computers for a living and any company that launches a web based business with ONE freakin server is asking to be wiped out! Add to that the "big commercial spots" of which I think ran 6 times across the country featuring the "Dell Dude". And now we hear about a Super Bowl spot, but as usual, NOT nationwide! figures, and what kind of geniuses have we out here that think that ONE 30 second spot will even get noticed in the SEA of big money ads on that day? HMMMMMM? plus it's on in the 4th freakin quarter!!!!! Chances are the game outcome is not in doubt, people have switched off, or are drunk and/or asleep.!!!! No, sorry folks, there'll be no...$1.00 by next year or the year after. We got hosed. And in case you're wondering, I'm in for $10,000.00 which was 10 grand I really didn't have, but hey I took a chance. Just please STOP PISSING on my shoe and telling me it's raining!

That news is such a dissapointment, I'm still holding through the superbowl to see the outcome of all this and sell if needed though. God doesn't like a pestamist, so I'm remaining positive.

GameZnFlix, Inc. Exhibits at Webmaster World Convention
Tuesday November 30, 10:29 am ET

FRANKLIN, Ky., Nov.30 /PRNnewswire-FirstCall/ -- GameZnFlix, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GZFX - News), a provider of online video game and DVD movies for rent or purchase, today announced continued growth in its recently launched affiliate program. The GameZnFlix affiliate program compensates web site owners and online marketers on a cost per action model for referring new subscribers to GameZnFlix.

This November over 1,000 affiliate marketers attended a convention in Las Vegas, Nevada sponsored by Webmaster World. As an exhibitor, GameZnFlix was able to directly present its program to the attending affiliates, some of which have attained a level of performance that makes them known in the Internet marketing industry as "super affiliates."

Joe Sousa, one of the super affiliates that recently joined the GameZnFlix program, stated, "I've been promoting other DVD and game rental services in the past with good results; however, the new GameZnFlix options are in my opinion a better deal for consumers and it's a better deal for affiliates as well. My focus has changed from promoting those other services to aggressively promoting GameZnFlix."

"Our affiliate program is a vital part of our plan for increasing our subscriber base," stated Michael Reader, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "To help grow the program, we've engaged Ross Jones to be our new Director of Affiliate Marketing. Mr. Jones brings several years' experience as an affiliate to the table, so he understands how affiliates work, and how to recruit and motivate them."

Mr. Jones has started training existing GameZnFlix affiliates on advanced Internet marketing techniques, such as Search Engine Optimization and Pay Per Click advertising. In addition to handling the day to day management of the affiliate program, Mr. Jones has two major initiatives underway: The first is recruiting super affiliates; the second is training average affiliates to become super affiliates.

The results have been positive, with over 1,700 affiliates joining the GameZnFlix program since its inception in October 2004.

GameZnFlix is a company that offers video games/DVD movies for rental or purchase on the Internet with access to over about 28,000 games and movie titles. Beginning at $17.25 a month subscribers can rent a combination of both video games and/or DVD movies with no late fees or due dates or members can purchase video games and/or DVD movie titles at a membership discount.

Certain statements in this news release may contain forward-looking information within the meaning of Rule 175 under the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 3b-6 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and are subject to the safe harbor created by those rules.

Ditto, and I'm bathing in this as well. I go back to the PGHI days with this thing and have read all the pumping as you have. One pumper in particular has posted incessantly "accumulating more today" for ages it seems, and there's no let-up in him.....still going strong. I think it's high time to SHUT UP all this annoying goof-ball pumping-yapping that several new investors have taken heed to,responded to, and piled money into. Am I the only one who is aware of the cash required to do Superbowl ads?? Has ANYONE at all ever questioned where this cash was coming from?? C'mon, let's stop all this misguided pumping and let this thing do what it will. If it's simply stupidity, then take it somewhere else and do it on someone else's time. I'm not complaining 'bout the loss either....knew it was high-risk going in. GLTA

I personally think a SuperBowl commercial would be a waste of time. I am not bashing, but I think this company has a hard time supporting the customers they already have. I signed up a month ago because I'm an invester. I received about three movies in 21/2 weeks. So now I am a customer at Netflix. I am still holding gzfx, because I am so negative. I think a SuperBowl commercial would be a huge waste of money. What this company needs is more distribution centers. That is just my two cents. Have a great day all!

a pr of relative interest:

Universal Express and The Convex Group Partner for the Distribution of a 48-Hour, No Return DVD
Business Wire - November 30, 2004 13:35

NEW YORK, Nov 30, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Universal Express Inc. (OTCBB: USXP), announced today that its subsidiary UniversalPost has formed an exclusive partnership within the postal store industry with The Convex Group to distribute Flexplay limited-play DVDs in UniversalPost's member stores.

Flexplay is a patented technology that renders DVDs unreadable 48 hours after being removed from a specially sealed package. Once the package is opened, the movie can be watched an unlimited number of times within the 48 hour window. The disposable nature of Flexplay, which is recyclable, creates a viable alternative to traditional rental models, with no returns or late fees.

"Not only is the message of NOEL important for everyone during the holidays, it also makes a great gift," remarked Chazz Palminteri, Director of NOEL. "The convenience of Flexplay allows people everywhere in all areas of the country to share a holiday film, which I believe can change people's lives. Because Flexplay is like a no-return DVD rental, the gift of NOEL on Flexplay can be sent anywhere to share the miracle of the season at a cost much lower than a regular DVD."

"The benefits to the consumer include economical price point, no returns or late fees and perfect quality playback on any standard DVD player," stated Linda Jacobucci, President of UniversalPost, "And as a distributor of the DVDs, the postal stores will add value to their retail stock in offering a product on the edge of technology."

About Universal Express

Universal Express, Inc. owns and operates several subsidiaries including Universal Express Capital Corp., (including its USXP Cash Express division) Universal Express Logistics, Inc. (including Virtual Bellhop, LLC and Luggage Express), and the UniversalPost Network. These subsidiaries and divisions provide the private postal industry and consumers with value-added services and products, logistical services, equipment leasing, and cost-effective delivery of goods worldwide.

About The Convex Group

The Convex Group, Inc. is a media and entertainment company with an extensive patent portfolio that acquires and integrates unique assets to create new media networks. The company, based in Atlanta, Georgia, owns or controls proprietary distribution and content platforms, including the "HowStuffWorks" franchise, the exclusive rights to "in-lid" CD-ROM distribution, which it operates through the LidRock division, and the Flexplay technology that enables time-limited, on-demand viewing of movies, games and other content delivered on a DVD.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: The statements contained herein, which are not historical, are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements including, but not limited to, certain delays beyond the Company's control with respect to market acceptance of new technologies, products and services, delays in testing and evaluation of products and services, and other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

I am not pumping, but I am also not losing faith. Just because they are not going to broadcast during the superbowl is no reason to dump the stock. As I have said many times, I have been a customer of Netflix since it started, and the service of Netflix at that time is comparable to GZFX at this point. It will take a while to build subscribers, but as long as the list of subs keeps growing, the stock has more and more potential.

If you say the service is poor, maybe it is, but compared to what - Netflix? It is unfair to compare any other company to Netflix. Give the other companies some time to develop. I mean seriously, why do you think Netflix is so much better? They have 29 distribution centers for Christ's sake. How many does GZFX have????? 2...2 2 2!!! NFLX used to be the same way and it used to take forever to get movies, and the selection was not nearly what it is today.

As the subscribers grow, we will have more money, with more money, we can create more dist. centers, improving service, and also have more money for advertising. I think that the superbowl commercial was a bad decision in the first place - spending that much this early is crazy. The best thing is the affiliate program, that will help this thing grow!!

--I know I said it is unfair to compare GZFX and NFLX, and I did just that, but I did it in a different manner. I am saying it from a point of what they have to potential to be. You all are saying that is what they should be right now, and that is not the case, plain and simple. Give it some time.


I seriously do not mean this as a pump, I am down just as much (probably even more) than most of you, but I still have faith. I would have liked to have seen a large jump when it launched, but that didn't happen, and it might not for sometime.

I do not know if we will reach a dollar - I think there is the potential - what I do know is that this thing will reach a price higher than what I bought in at and that is all I care about.

I am sure most of you bought this stock on its potential. Well, to be honest, I don't see that they have lost any of this potential. They may have made some mistakes along the way, but they learn from those, and that learning is what helps them reach their full potential.

I sold to buy into QBID run but plan to be back after the run is finished. I am very disappointed in the Superbowl news but this still is a infant company. It has only been live since May and how many companies on a national level have come this far in 6 months. Netflix took two years to make it. This is high risk just like any penny stock. You can either play pennies one of two ways. Swing (daytrade) or hold long. Meaning longer then 6 months. No one knows what this company is going to be in a year but that is the risk you take when you buy a startup company for pennies hoping for dollars. Get real people and quit blaming others. If you can't take the risk, go to the big board and average 10% a year.

I hope you last two weren't referring to my post in your posts. Not one time did I compare Gameznflix to Netflix. I just stated that I tried gzfx and couldn't get any movies or games sent. From the sounds of your posts you are the ones that are sweating losses. I could give a **** about the losses I have suffered in this stock. I have picked a lot of stocks that I am down in (I am a lousy picker, hence the reason I donít post). Maybe I am wrong and you are referring to someone else's post. All I am saying is that I think we (gzfx) will have a hard time getting a customer base with companies like Netflix, Walmart, and BBI out there. I don't research it like you guys obviously, but aren't we like 50 cents to a dollar cheaper than netflix. I am sorry, but I received 3 movies in 21/2 weeks with gzfx (I had a variety of movies in my queue). With Netflix as soon as I mail a movie off, the next day or so I receive more. Yes I am comparing the two, but that is because we are in the same market with damn near the same price. I promise you all, I am the last person to bash. I am just stating my opinion. The only chances of the market we have right now are the gamers (I had games in my queue also). Even at that we still have Gamefly amongst others competing. I will continue to hold though. I think our best hope will be we get bought out or something. Anyway, gl to all on Wed.!

Even with the bad news, the stock didn't tank out completly. I think I can at least break even with it. There's no pot of gold with this one anymore. But on a brighter note, the revenue is still increasing and as long as that happens we should be fine. Don't get me wrong, I'm still pissed about them not doing the comercial but there is still light at the end of the tunnel. A very small and dim light, but its there.

I was into this stock way before any talk of a superbowl ad. I just looked at the ad as a bonus. I still believe this stock and company has a lot of hills to climb, but come on its a new company what did you think was going to happen? I would say to anyone that is still in, don't sell and wait it out. As long as we keep growing this company really could turn out to be a player. Netflix was worse then this after two years when it came out.

New PR is out.

Press Release Source: GameZnFlix, Inc.


GameZnFlix, Inc. Provides an Operational Update
Wednesday December 1, 9:00 am ET


FRANKLIN, Ky., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GameZnFlix, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GZFX - News), a provider of online video game and DVD movies for rent or purchase, is providing an update on certain company operational issues. Gary Hohman, President of GameZnFlix, Inc., stated: "We successfully released the newest version of our website this October. This latest version offers customers a more robust and functional site along with new purchase options not available on the earlier versions. In addition, our IT team, headed by Chip Gallent, has been able to build a more in depth real-time data reporting application that allows us to data mine all customer and inventory levels as well as giving us the ability to more effectively project our inventory and customer needs. This week will also show the addition of gift certificates to our website, allowing our members and nonmembers alike to purchase memberships and pass them on to friends and family. Enhanced functions such as product availability, which will provide the members with a better indication of expected shipping time, are being developed and intended to be functional in 2005.
"The company has been experiencing outbound shipping delays due to the demand on limited inventory, and return to inventory queue delays based on software communications issues. Due to increasing inventory demands, the company has increased its inventory purchase program to help to eliminate outbound shipping delays. The company has made adjustments to software to help to alleviate the return to inventory queue delays. In addition, the company is planning to add two additional distribution centers in 2005 to smooth processing for both outbound and return to inventory; locations being considered, among others, are Denver and New Jersey. National Fulfillment Inc. currently handles our fulfillment needs from Gordonsville, Tennessee and Rancho Dominguez, California.

"Earlier this year, we reserved a 30 second commercial spot that was to run during the Super Bowl on the Fox Television Network. After close consideration, we have released the reserved Super Bowl slot and instead are in the process of securing time with three local Fox affiliates in Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Washington. The planned ad will be aired during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. Although this commercial will not be aired on the national network, the company will still be promoting the GameZnFlix brand to a large viewing audience but in a more cost effective and manageable manner.

"As we close out 2004, the company will continue to maintain its Internet presence through the affiliate program launched in September 2004. The affiliate program has proven to be the most cost effective way to bring new members to GameZnFlix and we will be budgeting our marketing and advertising dollars in 2005 to target the Internet almost exclusively. Targeted print and cable spot buys will still be utilized to complement the 2005 Internet campaign. In addition, Michael Reader, VP of Sales and Marketing, will be initiating a Corporate Employee incentive program to compliment our membership drive. In 2005 we will also kick off a 'Customer Retention Program' that will focus on bringing back old customers through incentive and rewards programs.

"As the company continues to move forward, it is imperative that we internalize certain functions in order to maintain a higher level of quality control, minimize capital outlay, and maximize productivity and customer experience. With this in mind, we have developed our own high speed server and redundancy system and have internalized the hosting. This alone will save the company substantial monthly provider and hosting fees, which can in turn be utilized to address the always growing inventory needs. In 2005 the company will also begin using a new lighter mailer that will result in savings on both the mailer itself as well as on postage."

In addition to the above, the following milestones represent areas of development that the company is currently working on for 2005.

* Product management expansion that will focus on movies and games as
two separate divisions for greater quality control and effective
buying.
* Retail sales expansion on the site for members and nonmembers alike
* Grass roots advertising campaign targeting the rural communities
across the country
* Research and development to identify future product delivery platforms
* Sponsorship and endorsement programs
* Possible expansion into the United Kingdom


GameZnFlix is a company that offers video games/DVD movies for rental or purchase on the Internet with access to over about 28,000 games and movie titles. Beginning at $17.25 a month subscribers can rent a combination of both video games and/or DVD movies with no late fees or due dates or members can purchase video games and/or DVD movie titles at a membership discount.

Frankly, I'm glad they're not going to advertise in all markets for the superbowl. With the current distribution problems they have to work out, the last thing they need is 100,000 customers to flood the website and sign up for service. What a disaster that would be! They need to grow slowly until they can work out the shipping problems. If they can impress the core customer base, they won't need expensive advertising to get out their message. Word of mouth is the best advertisement. I'm hanging in there.

I don't research it like you guys obviously, but aren't we like 50 cents to a dollar cheaper than netflix. I am sorry, but I received 3 movies in 21/2 weeks with gzfx (I had a variety of movies in my queue). With Netflix as soon as I mail a movie off, the next day or so I receive more. Yes I am comparing the two, but that is because we are in the same market with damn near the same price. I promise you all, I am the last person to bash. I am just stating my opinion. The only chances of the market we have right now are the gamers (I had games in my queue also). Even at that we still have Gamefly amongst others competing. I will continue to hold though. I think our best hope will be we get bought out or something. Anyway, gl to all on Wed.!

I was not referring to your post. In fact, I had not even read your post when I started writing mine.

And I see you are comparing gzfx and nflx and that is fine, but understand my point. You get your movies with Netflix so quickly because they have 29 distribution centers throughout the country. Gameznflix has two and they are still building their inventory (when somebody rents a movie, they order it then ship it when they receive it). Once this is done, the process will be slowed.

Trust me, when NFLX first opened up they had two distribution centers and the process took just as long. As they built up customers, they were able to expand - the same thing will happen with us. I mean think about it, do you think blockbuster started with 500 stores right when they opened??? How about Hollywood Video?

It is the same thing, we will grow and increase distribution centers which will lead to faster shipments and receptions which will lead to happier customers.

You say we are in the same market, and that is true, but it will still take some time to increase our market share. You cannot start as the top company. Even NFLX, when they were the only online rental place out there took quite a while to build customers -- we will experience the same process plain and simple.

My My My.....

Has everyone seen the updated Gameznflix website? To say it's an improvement would be an understatement. I'm sure most of you have seen it, but I haven't stopped by the site in a few months. It's much easier to search, there are descriptions of the movies, and more of the titles actually show the movie cover! I will say two things about Gameznflix. They back up their words with action, and they don't hype up the share price with alot of B.S. What you see is what you get. It obviously ain't no Netflix, but they don't pretend to be either.

Yeah I really think this company is starting to do things right. I think pretty soon the pps will start to rise not on rumors, but just from this company proving that it is going to stay around. A lot of ppl sold since they are not going to have the superbowl add, but this stock is still great even without it. I am looking for .03 or .04 in feb with a spkie late feb early march.

C'mon, this company is so poorly managed it's a wonder it's still here. Lets look back shall we? when the site came out, it was a disaster built by subscribers. Then, we get the "new Site". which worked barely at all when it finally launched, preceeded by stories of how IBM built them a "bad server". Let me tell you something guys and gals, I do computers for a living and any company that launches a web based business with ONE freakin server is asking to be wiped out! Add to that the "big commercial spots" of which I think ran 6 times across the country featuring the "Dell Dude". And now we hear about a Super Bowl spot, but as usual, NOT nationwide! figures, and what kind of geniuses have we out here that think that ONE 30 second spot will even get noticed in the SEA of big money ads on that day? HMMMMMM? plus it's on in the 4th freakin quarter!!!!! Chances are the game outcome is not in doubt, people have switched off, or are drunk and/or asleep.!!!! No, sorry folks, there'll be no...$1.00 by next year or the year after. We got hosed. And in case you're wondering, I'm in for $10,000.00 which was 10 grand I really didn't have, but hey I took a chance. Just please STOP PISSING on my shoe and telling me it's raining!

Uhhh what's disaster recovery mean??? Seriously this has always been a two bit operation... the only reason this stock was hyped is the model works... IF you have a solid distribution center/support/website built around it ... all of which we never had. Now if this was the first comp to offer dvds through the mail then yea its acceptable but it's not there is many competitors that offer solid service.. i've been using blockbuster not for 4 months and their sevice is fast and phenomenal.

Its funny all the pissers that said "yeah but blockbuster sux... blah blah late fees ... don't want to deal with blockbuster..." oi get lost.. nobody cares ... the bottom line is with the new promo blockbuster is 16.99 a month and service is fast and reliable with WAT more selection. Even netflix is better...


I told ya so

I think a SuperBowl commercial would be a huge waste of money. What this company needs is more distribution centers. That is just my two cents. Have a great day all!


sorry

but I told you all Netflix and blockbuster > gzfx


I mean who the hell wants to order a movie and then pray it shows up sometime. I work 9-5 mon - fri and sat sun are movie nites so I need my movies 2-3 days after I order them not 3 weeks later. Stupid gzfx waisted so many summer weekends ... blockbuster I order and boom 3 days later its in my mail box.

I am not pumping, but I am also not losing faith. Just because they are not going to broadcast during the superbowl is no reason to dump the stock. As I have said many times, I have been a customer of Netflix since it started, and the service of Netflix at that time is comparable to GZFX at this point. It will take a while to build subscribers, but as long as the list of subs keeps growing, the stock has more and more potential.

If you say the service is poor, maybe it is, but compared to what - Netflix? It is unfair to compare any other company to Netflix. Give the other companies some time to develop. I mean seriously, why do you think Netflix is so much better? They have 29 distribution centers for Christ's sake. How many does GZFX have????? 2...2 2 2!!! NFLX used to be the same way and it used to take forever to get movies, and the selection was not nearly what it is today.

As the subscribers grow, we will have more money, with more money, we can create more dist. centers, improving service, and also have more money for advertising. I think that the superbowl commercial was a bad decision in the first place - spending that much this early is crazy. The best thing is the affiliate program, that will help this thing grow!!

--I know I said it is unfair to compare GZFX and NFLX, and I did just that, but I did it in a different manner. I am saying it from a point of what they have to potential to be. You all are saying that is what they should be right now, and that is not the case, plain and simple. Give it some time.


I seriously do not mean this as a pump, I am down just as much (probably even more) than most of you, but I still have faith. I would have liked to have seen a large jump when it launched, but that didn't happen, and it might not for sometime.

I do not know if we will reach a dollar - I think there is the potential - what I do know is that this thing will reach a price higher than what I bought in at and that is all I care about.

I am sure most of you bought this stock on its potential. Well, to be honest, I don't see that they have lost any of this potential. They may have made some mistakes along the way, but they learn from those, and that learning is what helps them reach their full potential.


YES BUT what came first??? netflix or gzfx??? Netflix were pioneers and NO i call bullshyte on service being the same. I too used netflix from the beginning and yes there were some annoyances but over the service was really good which is why it got so popular meanwhile gzfx is in the gutter and always will be. How can you host a site on 1 server?? what type of silly buisness is that!

I would say to anyone that is still in, don't sell and wait it out. As long as we keep growing this company really could turn out to be a player. Netflix was worse then this after two years when it came out.

are you kidding me?!?!?!? There are OTHER already stable companies that offer the same darn service.. Unless a person is retarded and likes to spend the same amount of cash never get their movies on time... they will ALWAYS go to walmart/bbi or netflix.


WHen netflix was starting there was NO other competitors so they could take time to grow...

They definetly need to get their act together with sending people their movies on time. For me, they have until the superbowl to prove to me they are improving their system. I am a very patient man but my patience will only last so long.

"I sold to buy into QBID run but plan to be back after the run is finished. I am very disappointed in the Superbowl news but this still is a infant company. It has only been live since May and how many companies on a national level have come this far in 6 months. Netflix took two years to make it. This is high risk just like any penny stock. You can either play pennies one of two ways. Swing (daytrade) or hold long. Meaning longer then 6 months. No one knows what this company is going to be in a year but that is the risk you take when you buy a startup company for pennies hoping for dollars. Get real people and quit blaming others. If you can't take the risk, go to the big board and average 10% a year.

Oh my goodness! GZFX just lost its biggest pumper!! I hope you lose your ass on queer bid. I lost over half of mine on GZFX.

Just because you lost in GZFX doesn't mean you need to hope people lose theirs on "queer bid." Quit being an ******* and grow up!!

Well boys,this is where the rubber meets the road. I've been along for the whole ride. Up... way up... and now here. Guess what? This is penny land. This is where you speculate and maybe, just maybe, you have lighting in a bottle. My advice to those who are freakin...take a pill. I'm in till they pull the plug. Remember, I'm the guy who took a chance on a little known stock QBID, some 18 months ago. I'm also the guy who took a chance on ARET. You win sometimes,othertimes you take it on the chin. It's a numbers game.

I have to use a doughnut.

Well, I'll put it to you like this.. They charge almost the same amount as NFLX with 1/100th the service. I returned a movie over 2 weeks ago and they still haven't cleared it from my Que. I've picked some old and odd movies I've never even heard of just so they would sent something and quit telling me to make more selections. They finally send me one but days after sending it back they send me another then another copy of the same movie, unreal. It said they sent me a movie in my que and I finally get it, took a long time.. no wonder, postmarked Cali. I bet sending them back and forth from Cali will save them a ton in postage as it takes about a week to get here and a week to get back and that was a copy of a tv show! I wouldn't have put up with this crap except that I held shares in it. Then they say they can't have a nationwide ad on the superbowl, that I thought they were prepared for, because of funds. To top all this off the biggest pumper of this stock says "CYA!". So basically, its not a good situation. I did get out. Good luck with your company. It will soon announce that its bankrupt, going out of business and all shares will be worthless. I'm sure they have made a good amount of money on it. They will probably reopen under another name to make some more money.

I bet I never see the dvd player. They probably offered that knowing most people would cancel their sub.
