    Well you guys are lucky we got absolutely nothing. And when you ask them they just say "Ummmm..... Nah I don't think we got any. Also, is it blockbuster?

    wow that sucks V.v. So really the only way to get games to import them from other countries? But then how can you buy your wii when they don't have any games?

    US: Who has best rental price/policy for Wii Games?

    Anyone have any thoughts on who's best to rent from? I've signed up with Hollywood Video and they charge $6.99 for 5 days. They also give a 50% discount for the first 30 days, so I'm still enjoying that. Seem to have a decent selection, but not the newest titles.

    BTW, I'm in Minneapolis.

    US Blockbusters rent for $9 but you can keep the game for 12 days (grace period included), that is a pretty good way to get it done

    plus blockbuster has the newest titles on the day they are released..just have to make sure you beat all the other kids in your area.. took me forever to get my hands on tiger woods i almost bought it.. good thing i rented because that game BLOWS

    P.S. you have to have a credit card at time of rental to back up your purchase (for all next gen systems) ..if you keep the game too long past the grace period you will get charged the retail for the game and then your kinda stuck with it

    Thanks mnukeliller! That makes more sense to me. I'm not a big fan of Blockbuster for movies, but I will definately check them out soon.

    Are you saying that if you like the game that you can keep it and they apply the rental to the purchase price (9 + 40.99 = 49.99) or do they add it to the rental (9 + 49.99 = 58.99)?

    Yeah, we cn take them back but we need a special seal thing on the game to say that it's been a purchased item but we got none of them. Also EBgames is a good store but somethings are a bit overpriced (in my opinion) AUS$100 for some koronipa game, no thanks. You can buy them from EBgames but if you don't like it you can EXCHANGE it in the next 7 days, too bad if none of the games there are good.

    I looked on Wiki and it said 'no'..the sale price would be added on to the rental fee... but ask blockbuster just to be sure

    Where are you from gpoleweski. I'm from Mackay in Queensland and both of the Blockbusters here have about 25 Wii Games. Yay.

    I switched from Netflix to Blockbuster Total Access, because they have some codes out there (just search the net) that when you sign up, you will get 1 FREE game rental (and yes they carry Wii games) per month! :eek:

    Plus, you can take your DVD mailers to the blockbuster store and use it to rent another movie right on the spot. No need to wait for USPS to get it back to their distribution center and then have another movie shipped out. Quite an incentive IMHO.
