    I am really angry at Blockbuster - they have had Xbox 360 games for a while and when Wii came out they didn't have Wii games to rent. I thought - Fair Enough because it's only just come out. Now PS3 comes and on the day of launch they have PS3 games to rent, still no wii games!

    What is going on, i am really pissed!

    EDIT: Blockbuster UK

    My local Blockbuster had all the games released when the Wii first came out. I guess all locations have different routines.

    Blockbuster blows. They nailed me on late fees for stuff I turned in 1 hour before the due time. Very lengthy story on them screwing me over. Get Gamefly, or someone else. I once rented BoF4 broken, returned it. They put it back out on the shelves! Guess who rented it again? Me! Repeat 3x until they realize I'm the only one renting the damn game.

    BTW: They told me they had a new copy out each time I went to rent BoF4. Instead I got the same scratched, broken CD. They wouldn't let me open the box to check till I was out the door.

    I'm really annoyed about it as well, because when I want a Wii game I have to risk it and buy it.

    My Blockbuster has nearly every Wii game but $7 for 1 night is a bit too much.

    if you doo the online service then i think it's no late fees.

    I guess BB in UK screws us over in terms of selection and BB elsewhere screws you over in terms of fees.

    Actually, the "no late fees" thing just adds 3 more days. Essentially, you get 8 day rentals... If you don't return it, you pay the price of the movie, if you do, you pay a "restocking" fee.

    yeah, if you know the rules, it really helps. like, i could rent a 5-day movie. then if i don't bring it back after the 5 days, i have an extra (could be 3) 7 days to return it after that. then if i don't return it 30 days after that, i pay for the movie. but if i do return within that 30 days, i only have to pay $1.25. so basically, i could rent a 5-day movie for 41 days and only pay an extra $1.25. however, nobody reads the fine print, so blockbuster is making a ton off of this.

    I don't have a BB! I hate them. When ever I stay with my antie I rent games from them. In my town two Movie gallerys. Thankfully, both have wii games.
