You're kidding yourself if you think Blockbuster is going to continue to rent out Xbox 360 games for a month with only a puny restocking fee as penalty. So, how long do you think it will take before they charge by the day or some other means of putting a stop to overextended rentals? I'm sure they'll keep the policy for the rest of their videos and games, I'll bet only the new consoles will receive special treatment.

I thought they already ended the late fees thing.

They did, this is betting on the ending of the end of late fees (the reinstatement of late fees for 360 games).

Unless you believe that they'll be able to stock enough games or that players will conscientiously return their games by the due date...hah

Better question is, when will they get the Xbox 360 games? I work at a blockbuster and so far we have no games on order and haven't heard anything about them coming anytime soon either. Also, according to several people, they said that blockbuster will start charging late fees again, I don't know when though.

I called my local store today, and they said they already have several titles, and would have them out tomorrow.

I give it about 2 weeks before they realise what's going on.

I'm an ******* so I gotta take advantage of it too, but only because everyone else will.

1 hour, 51 minutes.

The games are always gone for the current console. They'll probably do something.

Is it a GameRush store? If so, they may only let those stores have them for now. Either that or my store still sucks.

So.. they have already done it all.

Games in Canada Blockbuster are now 9.99 for 3 nights! It used to be 5.99!

Late fees are also now in effect on 360 games.
