Awesome. I'm gonna go to my local library the day it they start this, if it happens...
Not really actually, unless I go there before it opens.
I think many libraries have stocked games before actually, but whatever.
Didn't expect that. Also, I read on Metro that there may be a list of Libraries cutting off internet service because people abuse them. Or something along those lines.
This might be some diabolic plan to group up people with flashcarts and them screw them over.
My public library stocks video games but only Retro games (Everything up to the PS1) Its pretty badass.
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having books for reading?
Bah, what ever. Is this like a renting system or borrowing a book except it's a game?
My local library (Ontario, California) has games.
I guess you can call them that.
Oregon Trail and Carmen Sandiego, they are never ever ever touched. (Don't get me wrong, I love a little "George Bush has died of dysentery" action every now and then but come on!)
Probably because you need to be 18 to check them out. (Same thing for DVDs wtf)
I'm pretty sure my local library does this already. I'd know for sure but I download books.
Well I think Toronto is behind in this
My library was renting out games for about 12 years orso. Not the latest and newest but still a fair collection. Used to borrow em and burn em, the starting days of my piracy
So what games you think they are going to keep IMagine.
And think of all the disadvantages.
Meh just use their internet to download games, that's what I had to do when my net was down.
We're supposed to read books in the library, if you want to play video games go somewhere else? What happened to all of the love for reading!... Is what my mother would say. :3
For me: HELL YEAH VIDEO GAMES IN A LIBRARY=EPIC WIN
haha, this has already happened in our library, heck, i can find last remnant in there, not that it makes any differences, poor guys didnt know that it can only be linked to 1 steam account, so whoever has the first dips on those game, unofficially owns them
but not ds/xbox/ps1/2/3 games, just PC and i think i was able to find GTA games, well not manhunt(thankfully) but occasionally i can find games that are M rated
All the libraries in my area are already doing this for years. They only have little childgames at my library, but the bigger ones have wii's and xbox 360 games. You can't play xbox 360 games though, they're all scratched to hell
The Ottawa Library already has most (good) Wii games, Xbox 360 games and some PS2 games. But games like New Super Mario Bros Wii have like 650 requests on only 8 copy's.
Libraries already host movies, why not video games? Although really, they'll probably go through the ringer.
I thought a while ago, for the US at least, there was some government initiative to stock public libraries with "family friendly" games like LittleBigPlanet. Not sure where it went, though. I haven't used a library for years, probably because I owe a lot of bullshit fees from my parents using my card and not returning books. And every time I swipe my goddamn card they say "OH YOU OWE $50". My library card is also so old that my "s" in my name is backwards. Not that my signature looks in better nowadays
My local Toronto library is very nice and quiet right now which is what I like. More kids there will probably ruin the atmosphere.
attract the ppl thru games but keep it minimal so as to not turn the library into a playground
Was it a new library? Sheppard library opened up a few months ago. I'd consider it fairly new.
