I really struggled to not make a joke when I received this release, but considering that every Blockbuster around my area is out of business (at least that I know of), you have to wonder just how many people are going to take advantage of this. The promotion covers anyone who purchases Gears of War 3
in any Blockbuster Video until October 7th. Doing so will grant you a free month of in-store rentals. It seems like this would have been a great deal roughly five years ago when Blockbuster was still readily accessible by everyone. I think it's more stunning to see that there are still 1,500 locations open in the nation than to see the actual promotion.
Blockbuster today announced all in-store purchases of Gears of War 3
will include a pass for free unlimited in-store rentals of games and movies for a month. Gears of War 3
is available today and the promotion will run until Oct. 7, 2011.
“We want to get back on gamers’ radars with a promo that packs a punch,” said Randall Baker, Blockbuster’s Senior Buyer of Video Games. “Gears of War 3
is certainly one of the biggest games of the year, but players may want to take a breather from fighting alongside Delta Squad every now and then. We’re giving them nearly unlimited entertainment options for those spare minutes.”
With more than 1,500 locations nationwide, millions of Americans live near a Blockbuster store that is well stocked with Gears of War 3
. Walk in and buy the game at Blockbuster today to take advantage of this great entertainment offer. All of the major recent videogame and movie releases are also available for rental, so gamers can get in gear for gaming goodness and media overload.
