7-Eleven used games sales is totally happening

When I was young I used to live near a convenience store that would rent out NES games. That was like a dream. I could roll up, get some snacks and a game, go back home and be a happy boy. I got to play real games this way, ones I would have never asked my mom to purchase. Xexyz? Oh yes. Battle of Olympus, anyone? How about some Genghis Khan action?

Good times are back again, thanks to convenience store 7-Eleven. While you can't go there to rent, they have the next best thing with used game sales. All games under the promotion "Great Games Under $20" will be just that -- under $20. This promotion, created in cooperation with Game Trading Technologies,  is coming to about half of the 7-Eleven stores in the U.S, and these games should start showing up by September.

Being able to get games (and Doritos/Slurpee combo) at any time is pretty amazing, don't you think?
