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.
