I've had both Blockbuster and Netflix

sorry but Blockbuster wins this.....you don't have to wait for new things to come in you can go right to the store and get it. 20 bucks a month to check out all the games and movies you want. Hopefully one of the stores by me don't close down.
Can you hold them for as long as you want though like say GameFly? Fuk waiting for the mail because if that's a case I'm bout to get my own membership for the time they got left

wait.. if I rent a game right before they close, could I just keep it??
They'll probably just stop allowing people to rent stuff after away and put everything on sale so rent while you can I guess.

My question is when a store goes out a business what happens to all the stuff that they failed to sale before closing? Do the employees run wild in shipping? Not like you have to worry about losing your job

piracy got em

I can't wait for the store sales tho...games will be extra cheap
no, netflix got them.

believe it or not people who pirate are in the majority, consumers who bought/rented before piracy got big still rent/buy, netflix just made it a whole lot easier to rent not to mention cheaper, no late fees, streaming etc. and once redbox hit that put the final nail in the coffin for BB

to say piracy k!lled it is just ignorant, then again some people said piracy k!lled cds/DD yet cds/dd sales are still exploding.

netflix offers a better/faster service and a better bang for your buck not to mention online streaming on devices like iphone, ipad, computers, ps3, wii, 360, integrated in new tvs etc.

if you honestly think blockbuster online is better then netflix then you are

A. retarded

or

B. have stock in blockbuster

you have to have a CC on your account to rent 360/ps3

if you dont return them they will just bill your CC/bank account or will be hit by a collection agency, its rare people get away with this, people tried this s**t when hollywood video closed and it failed big time.

S**t just ain't poppin no more. Why go get a movie at blockbuster when you can stream Netflix through the 360? Or the Roku player? Or get it off the Internet?

They are making it much easier for people to get movies nowadays without leaving your couch. Hollywood Video closed up here already and next Blockbuster.

True, I forgot about having the CC on file. The ony way you could get away with it then is if you have 2 checking accounts

On the monthly deal YES you can keep it as long as you want....i've been rocking the new madden since the day it came out. Honestly it's better than buying new games and trading them for pennies compared to what you bought it for. Plus you can get new ones instantly by going to the store.

Only downside is now with these online codes required it f**ks up the system, but gamefly would do the same thing...at least with this I can do movies as well.

sucks, that means less jobs for people. pretty soon we're never gonna have to leave the house. people don't even know how to interact in person anymore. remember back in the day being able to go to the video store and holla at a chick. i mean the movies were the ice breaker of conversation and where right there in front of you. now we all stuck inside the house for everything. i mean i haven't rented a movie in YEARS thanks to wd media player+2 tb harddrive with 1400+ movies on it and 200 gb worth of tv shows

Yeah $1 a day is worse than their old late fees.

exactly. Netflix is profitable according to recent publications. Plus netflix is partnering up with so many other things. Piracy also didn't help and that's just from people who buy copied dvds. Thats not including folks who stream movies online or download them, hook up their computer to their tv and watch them like that.
