It is 2008, and Blockbuster is just now offering DS game rentals nationwide

While your local Blockbuster might already offer a selection of DS titles on its shelves, keep in mind that the same isn't true everywhere else. For reasons unexplained, up until now, the movie and video game rental chain has thought it wise not to make the Nintendo DS, whose hardware and software sales have been booming since 2005, a standard fixture in its video game aisles.

In an email press release sent out yesterday, Blockbuster announced its plans to introduce DS game rentals, as well as hardware and accessories, to all of its locations nationwide. Finally, gamers will be able to try out Godzilla: Unleashed Double Smash before deciding whether or not it's worth buying.

Next on Blockbuster's list of emerging platforms to support: pogs.
