It seems a lot of people are splint between buying this game or simply renting.  I personally am renting for now, but what about you?

Neither because the DRM is retarded

If I'm going to play it, it'll be bought. I never rent games anymore for some unexplainable reason. 
That said though, it's far from on my must have list so when I do decide to buy it, it'll be on the cheap.

I haven't decided whether I'm going to rent or buy, but either way, I'll be playing this on Xbox 360. I just built a bad ass new gaming PC and I would like nothing more than to play Conviction on it, but Ubisoft's new DRM is absolute nonsense.

Well, I missed out on buying it for under $40 new. It won't be down to that price again for some time. I'll probably end up buying it on steam about 5 years from now when it's down to about $10 on sale. Might have been a different story if I had actually been able to finish Double Agent.

I... ordered it on Amazon for like $15 off.  Unfortunately, they're being super-giant-mega-assholes and not shipping it until the 19th, meaning I won't get it until the 26th-30th.  Very unfortunate. =\
