It's good to see that the chain isn't gone yet - but that still means there's about 1000 stores to shut down and that sucks. As for making a VOD service to rival Netflix, that'll be interesting to see how they plan to do it.

Glad to hear. Now I just have to hope that the one close to me stays open...or at least one somewhere around my town. I love just going into those stores.

All of them around me except one has closed....crossing my fingers that it stays open....otherwise that sucks. I have no where else to go to rent games at.

I bet this VOD service is exclusive in some extent to Dish network users so i have no interest in it at all.

Wow, I thought they would have more stores then that opened. Guess they don't have much faith in the Blockbuster name. Can't really blame them.
