I searched for it on ask.com: http://web.ask.com/web?q=Can+I+rent+an+Xbox+game+console%3F&qsrc=1&o=0

All I got were game rental outlets I already knew about, I'm talking about the whole console, can it be rented?

I ask because I saw in a Blockbuster once that I could rent a VCR to see older unpopular movies not in DVD format. I donno bout spending $200 to play one game and I am not interested in collecting any either. (what's Xbox 360, is it cheaper or just smaller?)

I do not know how long I have to wait for Halo 2 to be out on PC...what did it take for the first one, two years?!

Only $150 now.

Not sure about the rental, though.

I think Blockbuster rents out any equipment needed to play their games/movies. At least that's the way my local Blockbuster is.


911, where is your emergency?

You can find a refurbished XBox for anywhere between $129-$169 (Usually includes a game or two in a bundle). As for rental units, I think most video store chains have quit renting consoles after having a rash of the units being rented and never returned. When the XBox and PS2 first came out, folks were renting them from Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, etc, and didn't return them. The rental was secured with a credit card (or with a cash deposit), and when they didn't return the unit within a certain amount of time, they were charged $500 or lost the cash deposit. Considing how hard it was early one to get these consoles, $500 was a bargain considering how much people wanted for them on EBay and in the classified ads.
