    My local BB manager gave me a heads up this week that Blockbuster Corporate had sent word to all stores that they are to discontinue the renting of game systems. All rental systems are to be clearanced out of the store.

    XBOX $120
    PS2 $120
    Gamecube $99

    I picked up a xbox this morning and waiting for a Gamecube to come from rental. [​IMG]

    Of course all systems come with the 30 day money back guarantee.[​IMG]

    Ooh that XBox is tempting! But I'd be nervous buying a system from BB with only a 30-day warranty. God only knows how it's been treated!

    Good luck with the ones you got!

    Me too. I've babied my Xbox and PS2 since launch and they're both showing signs of dying. I shudder to think of the reliability of a system messed with by countless people, considering how beat up blockbuster's ex rental games are.

    I'm not sure if the price is rock bottom enough to mitigate the risk in this situation. You could probably get close to that good of a deal on a new system by shopping around. IE- I've seen Bestbuy giving away $30 giftcards along with the Xbox during sales, which combined with the 2 free games, puts the price in the $120 range.
