Renting PS3/Wii games after November 19th

So...does anyone have any experience with this? Typically how long does it take the typically BBV or Rogers to carry these titles. I'm curious because I really want to have Rayman Raving Rabbits near the launch window for a social event but I can't afford to by the game and keep it.
Also I don't know BB/FS policies on returning games if I buy it, just to return it within the next couple of days.

Any experience or knowledge? Maybe like xbox 360 rentals around last year?

IIRC, BBV didn't rent 360 games for at least the first week, citing limited userbase.

I expect the same for PS3. Wii, on the other hand, could be the wildcard.

Either way, I don't expect large chains to have either system's games rentable for at least 2 weeks.

My local BBV has a rack of empty cases with PS3 logo on them. I assume that space is reserved for PS3 games so I think they are going be renting them out fairly quickly even though no one is going to have a system for a while.

The BBV near me has signage up already stating that the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 rental games are $9.99 for a week, plus they already have some empty 'coming soon' cases out. Shouldn't be too hard to find anything on launch day or the day after.

Wow, crappy Activision beat EA to the punch.
From a "Family" reviewer: "We Cheer teaches coordination, enticement to lust, women being used as sex objects, and team work."

From Worthy Playing: "We Cheer is, then, for all intents and purposes, the F-Zero GX of music games. It asks for so much, yet forgives so little. It is actually so casual that it's hardcore."
