Redbox offers video game rentals nationwide

After a couple years of testing video game rentals at select kiosks, and expanding to several thousand kiosks last fall, Redbox has now expanded the service to 21,000 kiosks nationwide. Video games will cost $2 a day, which is slightly more than movie discs at $1 for DVDs and $1.50 for Blu-ray Discs. However, unlike new movie releases, video games will be available a week after they officially hit shelves. Game discs will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii platforms. Movie rental competitor Netflix has yet to offer video game rentals.

  1. IMO this is great news. There is nothing better than trying Video games before dropping $60 on an owned copy. I’d gladly pay $2 to try a game out. Game makers can’t like this very much. They rely on those sales and don’t nessessarly want to let people “try before you buy” as this increases risks of someone not buying their game. Too bad for them. Make better games!
