After nearly two years of testing video game rentals in its ubiquitous crimson movie rental machines, Redbox is ready to take its game national, offering game rentals at more than 21,000 locations nationwide starting June 17.
Redbox began testing video game rentals in its DVD rental kiosks back in August of 2009, slowly adding locations over the past 20 months. I can understand them taking it slow. It's one thing to pack a kiosk full of DVDs and Blu-ray movies. At more than double the full retail price, video games are a much larger gamble.
