Blockbuster said today that it will sell a $499 bundle consisting of a 40GB Play Station 3 console and various Blu-ray disc services.

Now this should be interesting....

Any positive PR for Blu-ray is good for the format. If it sells PS-3's, & rents /sells discs, it can only help IMO!

This deal doesn't sell me. I'd rather pick and choose my own games/movies, and get a cheap HDMI cable from Monoprice, than to be forced to spend $100 extra on their choices.

Wrong type of consumer. Few people rent dvd's only would drop $499 for a gaming console while the even more exceedingly few who rent HDM would buy ps3 from BB as first choice.
