    Last time I remember consoles being rented was the original Playstation at Blockbuster near launch (and they wanted £300 deposit :suicide: ).

    With the value of consoles now and how much of a chav nation we've become (not everyone but there's not many people I'd trust these days), it's unlikely anyone will start doing it again :(

    No use I know, but I remember when my parents had a Video Library, back in the early 80s, they used to rent out my old Atari 2600 and games :D

    thanks guys, didn't expect to get good news but worth a try.there's no point me buying a console at the moment as i just dont have time to use it :)( ) but i wanted to see how things have moved on since i sold my PS2. oh well, will have to wait for my 3yr old to get a bit older as an excuse to get one - think 4 is too young :rotfl:

    cheers

    Nice Signature!

    I though that I was the only one around here who gives a s**t about the rules . . .
