Thumbs up Adding Games to Total Access

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17939_109-10161470-2.html

If they can offer the same amount of games as gamefly and advertise this properly then I think this has some real potential. Seems like BB's best idea in a while to me.

Itx blockbusta playa, im sure they can offer 3 times the game that openfly could.

The problem is openfly has never been profitable. Go read about it.

Game rental is at best a break even idea. Probably lose money though. They cost more, have a shorter shelf life. Just take a look at what happens in the store to your games. And why do you think we are getting less? I get 5 copies and within a month after 3 rentals(that's if they bring them back on time) I still haven't broke even and have at least 2 in the bad film cabinet.

I know it's not neccesarily the most directly profitable idea but it's at least something help up us take some of the market away from netflix.

Great , another idea to beat the competition. Just wish for once they could come up with one that actually makes money.

Actually right now the best defense for BBV against netflix is to actively support the Postal week going to 5 days. Contact your Congressman and send Obama some kisses.
