Probably not news, but I just noticed that my local Redbox is offering games for all three current consoles. They had all the new releases: LA Noire, inFamous 2, COD: Black Ops and others. I was tempted to rent the new Transformers game. Just 2 bucks a night. A good solution if you don't want to spend 60 bucks on a game purchase. 6 bucks for a weekend rental for some of these games sounds more reasonable to me.

Good alternative to the $20 that blockbuster charges for an entire month with infinite exchanges...   /sarcasm

Really?  Redbox charges $2/night, I believe.  Compared to $20/month.  Blockbuster also tends to have more games in stock. 

Redbox is great as a 'once in a while' thing.  As a 'rent a lot of games' thing, though, I'd go with Gamefly or Blockbuster.

Assuming you can find one still open. The two that were in our town are closed down.

Exactly. The Blockbuster deal is better... but Blockbusters are closing all over. If I want to just sample a new game for a weekend.. 6 bucks ain't a bad deal to me. That's all I'm saying.

Every blockbuster here is closed as well.  Thats a bit like saying why eat anywhere but in and out to someone on the east coast.  It simply isnt a choice.

Well clearly the indicator on whether your metro area has made it is whether or not there is a Blockbuster that has not closed down due to extreme failure there.

I live right smack in the middle of downtown Baltimore. No Blockbusters anywhere. They're gone.

Something like 1400 of ~2000 Blockbuster stores are being shuttered. And they are now owned by Dish, iirc.
