heh so you can now rent a game on wal-mart !! … sounds good for us consumers , but would’t it be a bad idea to rent out a game that can be played online ? rent the game … copy the CD/DVDs and write down the serial on a pice of paper and return the rented game … for me it sounds OK, but I don’t think that the gameindustry like the idea of renting out games. It will only take a week befor a studio like RockStar, bungie, ore someother gamestudio will sue wal-mart

Places have been renting out games for years. The games industry don’t have a problem with it as they make a % from the takings I believe.

not sure where u live, but i am in the US- i have never seen any places that rent PC games here. I know they do in the UK though. But also i think walmart is only doing movies - not pc games- wish they would do pc games though. :slight_smile:

I’ve seen quite a few places in Canada.

There are places here in the US that rent PC games. Just check around the smaller shopping centers. I usually find them in the shopping centers with large grocery stores.
