US stores and services will keep going, for now.  The Blockbuster downtown here could be the last brick and mortar video rental store left in the city, after our last Movie Gallery shut down this year.  They had a sale to get rid of everything in the store, including the shelves, but the good movies had all been picked clean.

We've got Blockbuster and Popcorn Video (not a chain as far as I know). This has been predicted for awhile and not shocking at all. Netflix is so much cheaper and convenient.

Didn't surprise me either, I've been using Netflix for several years, mostly for streaming lately.  Blockbuster tried to update their services, but I guess it's just not practical to keep the stores running.  I haven't rented a game or movie from a physical store for at least 10 years.  Used to rent games often, before I could look them up online to see if I'll like them.

Heh, I saw that somewhere before.  Netflix has been doing well lately, getting streaming to every console, even the Wii.  Only annoying thing is having to put in the streaming disc in my PS3, but they're supposed to change that soon.
