Very easy, and can definitely be done in a rental or etc. I was lucky and bought mine brand-new for like six bucks. But it's also a really fun game, and very fun to play with friends whenever you get the chance. Great series overall... it's the only modern game that compares to the all-out fun of the oldschool NBA JAM games. Last one I enjoyed this much was Showtime for Dreamcast.
