Blockbuster is set to test out offering video games in addition to movies via its Total Access rental by mail system. It's a move Netflix probably won't counter.

Blockbuster is testing offering games now, and planning to offer it to customers in the second half of this year. Netflix has made no noise on the subject, and judging by the fact that it promotes Gamefly in envelope ads, probably doesn't have immediate plans to jump on board.
