Dude.. I just rented Fallout 3 last weekend for PS3.. It was like $6.84 for 3 days... Then they told me it was $1.99 a day for each day late, and then they sold it to you on the 10th day it was late...
Time are getting tough! Whatever happened to "no late fees?"
For movies, that is why we've switched to Netflix. Used to use the local video store but they had a zero late tolerance policy. Love Netflix, daughter has a blast monitoring the queue online. Can send in 2 movies Monday, get 2 more on Wednesday in the mail.
Oh, the local store just went belly up, should have been nicer to their customers.

with the ease of renting games online, i don't see how blockbuster can compete. i give them 2-3 years before they flop.
If BlockBuster Video goes belly up, do you think it would also effect the Miami Dolphins? Wayne Huizenga is primary owner of the NFL team, as well as BB. He also owns Waste Management; the largest trash delivery company in the U.S., and former owner of the Florida Marlins MLB and Florida Panthers NHL teams.
I used to work for BlockBuster a long time ago. They remind me a lot of Wal-Mart (and McDonald's for that matter), in that they grew so big and successfully hit the little guys mom-&-pop stores.
I heard that BB is now experimenting with online rentals, to compete with these others mentioned.

Not so sure of Gamefly.. the one time I checked em out, they were charging about $25 a month for their service. Umm... I don't play games enough to warrant that cost.
