I'm already in trouble for buying Rock Band 3 (+ keyboard) next week, so there's no way I'm going be able to plunk down another $60 the following week for DCU Online.

I've never really been intrigued enough to rent one before , so my question is, if you rent a MMORPG, do you have to sign up for a subscription to the game?

I ... don't see how this could be feasible.

Not only this, but several MMO companies will force you to not only buy the game, but get a subscription on top of it. With Aion I bought the game, then I had to put in either a credit card or time card as well.

The game has been delayed until 2011, so you don't have to worry about it.

For MMORPG's, you *have* to buy the game, register an account (they all come with a key), then you usually get a free month. After that, you pay a monthly fee. So you can't rent them, as you need that key to register, they are one use.
