Is there a way to "rent" games through the X360/PS3?

I have never used any of the online features of my X360 or PS3 and thus have always just rented games from my local BB (regardless of your opinion of what's left of BB, the monthly "pass" is a good deal). But since my local BB has terrible copy depth for most new games, I was just wondering if it was possible to rent games in a similar manner through the X360 or PS3. Is it possible to pay Microsoft/Sony one monthly fee to be able to stream an unlimited number of games through my X360/PS3, or do I have to pay an individual fee for every single game I want to play?

Thanks, I'll have to look into Sony's program. I wish there was something like that on the X360. I will be very surprised if the online components of the forthcoming systems don't offer such an option...

Surprisingly no. But, you can Rent Games Streaming Via OnLive. You don't even need a high powered system. Just a fast internet connection. http://www.onlive.com/ Also, Steam as a lot of Free to Play Games. http://store.steampowered.com/
