Blockbuster’s Wallet Buster


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.

About chris

Chris originally intended for Marooners' Rock (then called World of Meh!) to be nothing more than a personal online outlet for creative writing. As the featured writing became more and more video game related (and companies started sending free games), and as the number of authors increased, Chris took on the role of Editor-in-Chief to ensure that Marooners' Rock would never have an article about how awesome the N-Gage was, because it wasn't.
