The really exciting part was that they added games for no additional cost, which would allow you to have a game out for 30 days for just $8.99.

Getting new releases three months later? I’m sure hardcore gamers are going to love that.
I actually just switched from Gamefly and really like the service. Its about half the price of Gamefly. Plus for a new game I really want Im willing to go out and buy it. It took a long time anyways for Gamefly to get you new releases. The main thing about BBs service that I like is that its turnaround time is about 2 days or same as Netflix but games are included and bluray also for no extra charge, while Netflix charges extra for bluray.
I’ve hear there is this new thing which can transport digital information very fast. Not sure what it was called though… inter something…
I canceled my Blockbuster subscription because every movie i wanted to rent had a “short wait” or very long wait". Only the older movies were available. I guess that’s a sign that they will be folding their tent…
I heard today that Blockbuster will be filing for bankruptcy in the next couple of weeks. I’m not sad to see it go, but I do feel for the people about to join the unemployment line. The global economy is still pretty fragile and this is just more bad news. Having just spent a humbling 15 months in that line, I certainly sympathize. Good luck.
