Blockbuster’s New Gaming Initiative

It’s a friday night, and you’re really bored of the games you have. You get in the car and drive over to Blockbuster, only to find that all of the games you would be interested in getting have all been rented out.

Well Blockbuster aims to change that with their new gaming initiative. The games section at Blockbusters across America is being expanded, with new options for getting your games. Not only will the stores be stocked with the latest game releases to rent, but the store will begin selling these games new as well. In addition to Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 games, Blockbuster will soon be adding Nintendo DS to the list of games you’ll be able to take out. As if that wasn’t convenient enough, you’ll be able to purchase consoles too. The store will have a special Playstation 3 bundle which will include:A 40 GB Sony PS3

  • A PS3 Media Remote
  • HDMI cables
  • Spiderman 3 on Blu-Ray
  • Transformers Game
  • A 12 Week PS3/Blu-Ray rental card (one week free rental a week for 12 weeks)
for 499.99. Gaming accessories will also be available at the store.
It seems like Blockbuster has really embraced gaming recently. I saw that they were selling Super Smash Bros. Brawl in a special display case, as well as looping GTA IV trailers on a nice TV to promote that release. While I don’t see myself lining up there at Midnight for any big launches, it’s a step in the right direction. Although like any retailer, they probably won’t have many Wii consoles for sale.
So if you find yourself driving around town on a friday night looking for a good game to play, go buy Grand Theft Auto IV. It’s quite good.
