Blockbuster details new Games By Mail rental system

Joystiq writes: Yesterday, we heard about beleaguered rental chain Blockbuster's attempt to yoink some of the video game rental market back from the hands of GameFly by implementing a new "Games By Mail" rental service. Today, we received more details: For an extra $7.99 plus tax on top of their standard monthly fees, Blockbuster Online subscribers will be able to rent one game at a time, which counts towards the total number of discs they're allowed to have out under their subscription plan. Fortunately, if you don't check out any games during the one-month billing period, you're not charged the extra eight bucks.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well BB is doing everything they can possibly do to stay alive these days. They just filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy last month and are $975 million in debt.

GameFly's service is better than what BlockBuster is offering IMO.
