Rent so you don't buy?

If you're a big StarFox fan, would you wait till Assault went on sale or would you go rent it now at Blockbuster? Other companies have experimented with the "rent only before official release" promotion and, to my knowledge, all have lead to lackluster sales. Now, with a title that should have lasting multiplayer appeal as Assault is boasted to have, the gamble may pay off. Some early review scores are out, and the verdicts are pretty lackluster. So maybe this is a good way to convince skeptical buyers to at least check it out. Let the public decide so to speak.

I'm going to stores this week to try and snag a PSP pre-order sans bundle. Wish me luck. I will update if there are promising results.
