Blockbuster’s Wallet Buster
Yesterday I mentioned that we had rented a couple of games for our new Wii from Blockbuster on Sunday night (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and De Blob). What I failed to mention was that we had intended to rent two additional games (Cooking Mama: World Kitchen, and Spongebob’s Atlantis Squarepants), but decided, at the last minute, to refrain. Why, do you ask?
$8.99 each. That’s why.
Yes, Blockbuster is charging, for XBox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii games, $8.99 each for a 5-day rental.
Are you fucking kidding me?
We ended up renting the two games mentioned earlier, as well as the movie Knocked Up, which neither of us had seen (pretty funny, actually), and it cost us over $20. That’s just ridiculous.
Fuck you, Blockbuster. I’m checking out GameFly.
