Blockbuster not stocking Vita due to lack of interest

Blockbuster video will not be stocking or renting out any Vita games due to lack of interest and pre-orders. Should we worry about the future of Vita? I have a sinking feeling. Really wanted too rent uncharted as well!

I'd be more worried about the future of Blockbuster personally with them having to compete with the likes of Love Film and Netflix and launching their streaming service far too late.

Sounds like utter BS to me as this is the same Blockbuster who were stocking 3DS from day-one despite poor sales.

 

Fact is, nobody with half a brain-cell is going to use Blockbuster when there are places like Lovefilm and Boomerang offering much better value.

Ok, but where can we now rent Vita games??? I actually got this info from a member of staff, was gutted as they were renting games £5 for 5 nights and I reckon I could complete Uncharted in that time. Oh well.

Mine too and manager told me they would continue. Blockbuster us have gone bust but uk blockbuster have been bought by a massive company called dish and future looks ok for now. Another fact is CEO of Sony and CEO of blockbuster are golfing buddies and best mates so don't believe all that you read

renting vita games is bad business for Sony so i guess blockbuster saying this is good news for Sony. 

 

 

also why some people are so worried about the future of vita ? as long as sony keeps on making decent games for it & it doesn't get hacked then there is no doubt vita's future is very bright one.

Yeah I think Blockbuster are at risk too regardless of what a branch manager says lol.

I can't really see why anyone would use them now - particularly not for purchasing a Vita or its games. Not only are they expensive for rentals, but you have to go there when everyone is just downloading or renting from Lovefilm.

What I do like about Blockbuster is that they're open until late and sometimes that's been handy. Then again, they don't have anything you can't just get in Asda, Tesco or wherever 24 hours now and those are cheaper than BB too.

For game rentals, Lovefilm do Vita and you can get a whole month for £5.....

I was actually talking about this tonight with my dad. Blockbuster is called ''Xtra Vision'' here in N. Ireland. 

 

I'm surprised any of them are open at all really. Sure they have a bigger movie selection. But it's so easy choosing from your couch, then driving to the store.

 

You can rent Vita games from Lovefilm anyway..It's under PSP though.

I've been looking at joining Boomerang lately and will most likely later in the year when the christmas rush of games come along. Don't know why anyone uses Blockbuster anymore when there are more cost effective ways to buy and rent games and movies.
