Pay nothing for Grand Theft Auto V at Blockbuster

Blockbuster have announced midnight openings for the most anticipated release of the year. Customers can get their hands on GTA V at midnight for nothing when they trade-in two selected titles. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Same. Blockwhhhaat?

Yeh the blockbusters that where near me in QLD have closed up too , they must really be in trouble, its not hard to guess why tho , who rents movies and games much nowadays when you can pirate them or buy them digital and other easier and cheaper ways.

I keep forgetting they have stores yet. They completely closed all their stores in Canada a couple of years ago now. My old, local Blockbuster store is a Halloween store presently.
BattleTorn  +   717d ago
I've witnessed several Blockbusters close.

I've slowly moved closer and closer to downtown Vancouver.

Funny that almost everytime I moved, there was a blockbuster closing near by.

Hilarious slogan, now that I think of it.

/Blockbuster: there's one closing near you.

All the ones that closed here are still empty buildings lol. Hell their signs are still up in most of the spots. One is backwards for some reason.

We still have one location out of like 15 or so within a few miles of me. I think the only reason its still there is because the people that own the area don't want it to be a ghost town, oddly enough Blockbuster is the only store left. Two major stores left, and all the smaller ones around it left, so its this massive parking lot with a small blockbuster off in the corner lol

There is a store in the UK called Blockbuster not related to the Blockbuster video rental stores in the US
limewax  +   717d ago
UK Blockbuster also does rentals and has closed down more or less countrywide.... you sure they aren't in some way related?
Psychotica  +   717d ago
@linewax - Maybe they are I am not really sure, I thought I heard they were more of a video game store. I don't live in the UK.
LightSamus  +   717d ago
Most of them have indeed gone. My closest one now is 2 miles away and the one after that 5 miles. They're pretty scarce now.

Oh and they cover both games and movies but are more known as a movie rental store, the same as in the US.

We have the same Blockbuster here and the ones in my area are closed down.

I have no idea what this other Blockbuster is that you mention, I think you misread something.
Koyes  +   716d ago
Not exactly 'pay nothing' is it. You pay two games worth 94 dollars in total :/
Kran  +   716d ago
In the UK, yes.
coinpixels  +   716d ago
All the branches I know in the UK have closed down.
Kran  +   715d ago
still one in the town I live.

Until the lazy fat ass Americans got ahold of em. (I'm American) The glory days was being able to watch a movie or play a different game every day. The catch?? you had to get off your ass and go trade it in at the store :( The HORROR!!
InsaneGam3r  +   717d ago
There's some website selling the game, 120$ for next day shipping, 100$ for meet up.

Just to let you know

Their online program would be fantastic if they would offer the damned online videogame rentals at the time they release instead of like 4 months after...so dumb...if they did that they would reign supreme over Netflix and Gamefly IMO

I don't think there's one Blockbuster in the bay area.

No wonder these guys are giving away GTA V with two trade ins, they can do that since no one will be able to find a Blockbuster to take advantage of it.
Angeljuice  +   717d ago
I think they only exist in the UK now (not sure about continental Europe). But there's definitely a few left in England at least.

As the old Morrissey song goes "America is not the world"!

Reading the terms, its funny no one attacks this simply because its not Gamestop. According to the terms, if you trade in TWO games that are worth 47 dollars, you will get half off a new game. Do the math, 94 dollars for 30 dollars, fair trade?

mayberry  +   716d ago
There is a BB 2 blocks from me that has a huge game library. I trade in my "Coke reward points" for BB game rental coupons all the time.

Look out guys Blockbuster is getting back in the game. /s
Swiggins  +   716d ago
There is exactly 2 Blockbusters left in all of San Diego county...

I kinda miss the days of video store rentals, everything just seemed so much simpler back in those days.

Anybody remember when they had that deal where if you payed $20 you could rent unlimited games for a month? Damn those were the days...
