Redbox Game Rentals Are Live

Illustration for article titled Redbox Game Rentals Are Live

Starting Friday the denizens of grocery stores, Walmarts and gas stations nationwide can quickly rent video games from kiosks at $2 a day.


Ignoring for a second the option to rent by mail through Gamefly, that means a month's rental will end up running you about the same amount you'd spend on buying the game. Redbox tells Kotaku that after keeping the game for 30 days, gamers would be charged $60 and may keep the game. That's a total charge, including the rental fees. Not bad.

The service will be available at more than 21,000 redbox locations nationwide and includes a selection of titles for the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.



The last time I checked, I thought Walmart did not have redbox, but instead some blue box alternative. You usually find redbox at larger super markets, like Stop & Shop, Shoprite, ect... up here in the North East.
