    Well this is new. Whoever heard of a gas station selling video games? And not those cheap knockoff games either. They will be selling PS3, 360, Wii, and PS2 games. Selling prices for these games are tagged at SRPs of US$ 59.99 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, US$ 49.99 for the Wii, and US$ 39.99 for the PS2. Some games that are stocked for the holidays so far are:

    * Guitar Hero: World Tour Band Kit (Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii)
    * Fallout 3 (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC)
    * World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (PC)
    * 007: Quantum of Solace (Xbox 360, PS3, PS2)
    * Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)
    * WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS2)
    * Call of Duty: World at War (PS3, Xbox 360)

    They also will have gift cards and stuff for MMO players so you won't feel left out.

    Well, considering 7 Eleven sold video games in their convenience stores in Japan and 7 Eleven USA got bought out by 7 Eleven Japan, this is only a logical step. I really miss the japanese 7 Elevens.

    Technically, I've already seen games at a truck stop gas station. I bought the PC port of Maui Mallard Cold Shadow (an old Donald Duck game originally for SNES) in a bargain bin of software at a truck stop called Flying J.

    But this is official real games, so I guess it's different.

    there was only 1 game store around my area and they sell games for like twice as much
    i once sold a game there for 10$ (the most they ever buy for)
    3 days later, i see it on the shelf for 60$
    it was a ps2 game, i was like wtf
    and next to that game was a 120$ one
    wtf?!?!?!
    now im going to 7-11 instead of busing all the way to bestbuy/futureshop

    I remember when I used to be able to rent games from the grocery store! Wish I still could too.
