I need to rent an xbox

Do we still have those video-rent stores where you could rent consoles for a few days @ 20 bucks? Is for a kids birthday party I'm helping plan. Thinking about having a dance central competition.

and for the clueless, dance central is an xbox kinnect game:

If there were funds for such purchases we would be at best buy instead of foo.

Family Video rents consoles, but it ain't cheap: you have to put down a hefty deposit- basically buy the thing outright- plus the rental period, then get the deposit back. Great for people who are in the market wanting to compare Xbox to PS3 to Wii and have the ca$h, but I've never rented one and so don't know how fast you get the refund...

...and just checked their website and they have no locations in FL.

Thx... we found a place but it was a similar deal, the deposit was $150. Craig-list and Pawn Shops are better than that. IMHO it is stupid that these games don't come for PC.

PS: Oh and the blockbuster had echo in it, no kidding. We were the only ones at the store, besides the clerk. Reminded me of the south park episode.
