Is there a place to rent a PS3 or XBOX 360 ?

Back in the day when the PS1 first came out, I remember renting one from Blockbuster so we could play Grand Turismo for my birthday. I haven't had the need to rent a console because I have always waited for them to come down in price (even the Wii, got one for $229)

But man does GTA4 look sexy. Leaks say it wont be ported to PC till October or November but man I can't wait that long. Blockbuster stopped renting consoles a while back, Rent-A-Center and Aarons don't do short term rentals (and I am not paying half the cost of a brand new PS3)

Anyone know where to rent a PS3 for just the week. All I want to do is play GTA4 then crawl back to my PC to beg for forgiveness. I hate consoles, but this is the only way to play until 4 or 5 months from now.

By the way, for those who haved played it...I read it is pure sex? Especially the multiplayer?

I just really can't justify $389 just to play a game for max a couple of weeks.

And where did I accidentally post this? I thought I posted it in Back porch...

Back when RAC did do short term loans, it was like $28.99 per week.

So I just want it for a couple of weeks...probably $50.00 plus a cash deposit.

Deposit for the full amount of the system, right? $60 cash and a deposit for the amount, in case it's damaged/not returned?

Or you can just sit in the couches at BestBuy and "test" out GTA4 on XBOX360 for a week straight. Basically an in store daycare center

or you can just goto wal-mart. Buy one play it for up to 15 days and take it back and get all you cash back. Just read the return info. I belive all electron stuff is 15 days no questions. I did this when there was still a 90 day return policy once glad i didnt keep that peice of shit dreamcast too haha.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

Correct, I pay in cash for the full amount of the system, plus the $60.00 for the rental of whatever time period you specify.

When I give it back to you in the original condition, I get the cash deposit back and you just made some money by renting out something you dont use.

I like that idea...but I would have to BS an excuse up, which I hate doing. Most likely if I do that, I will complain that the PSN (Playstation Network) sucks compared to Xbox 360 and I will just use it instead.
