Blockbuster to carry Playstation 2 for rental starting October 26th.

Blockbuster Video has recently announced that they will be carrying Playstation 2 hardware and games starting the day the system launches. 

But Blockbuster isn't simply stopping at offering the system for rental. The nationwide chain of video rental stores is set to feature a sweepstakes giving away a Playstation 2 daily at blockbuster.com, ending November 30th. Steve Lundeen, vice president of interactive merchandising for Blockbuster, commented, "The Playstation 2 giveaway is Blockbuster's way of showing that we are the ultimate location for interactive media enthusiasts, both in-store and online." He went on to say, "Those winning the units will receive them soon after the nationwide release on October 26th."

On another subject, Lundeen said, "We have always tried to be the leader in the 'try before you buy' game rental category." He added, "Before spending up to $300 on a console or $50 for a software title, gamers can try it for five days for a small fee. Like our movie rentals, it represents a strong in-home entertainment value."
