Not sure if it's the same, but in my town they're $7.99 before tax ($8.67 after)

EDIT: Thanks ilski, forgot about the Gamepass. If it's the same as when I worked there (about 6 months ago) the game pass is about $24.99 a month (at least here it is) and all it is is you get one game at a time and you can switch for another as many or as little times as you want. If you want you can go in 50 times a day.

You're probably looking at anywhere from $7 to $10. I believe Gamefly's 1 game a month package starts at $9 or $10. I get 4 a month for just under $40. I think Hollywood and Blockbuster both have 'Gamer passes' that allow you to rent x games a month for a flat fee. You could look into that.

In Canada, it's $7/$8CA. I wouldn't reccomend renting from a store like this unless you were going to buy something such as a gamepass.

It's $8 in PA. But I can rent games from my library in town for free, and they actually have a pretty good selection. :woop:

You should have some Family Videos over in Illinois, they're $6.99 there, and you can get half off your rentals every month for a small price, and they'll only be $3.50 for 5 days with that..

Different rental outfits like movie gallery and blockbuster charge different prices based on the towns their stores are in. I.e college town stores are often cheaper than the ones in a community of older people. I would suggest just picking up the phone and giving them a ring.
