I beg to differ.
You CAN grab any game right off the shelf...that's in stock. Don't think you'll be able to run right in, snag a copy of Mario Odyssey to rent, and be on your way.
I do think this is a decent idea if there are some non-recent releases people want to play but don't want to own...then maybe by the end of the 6 months more of those games you wanted to play close to release will be available to keep.
