Redbox to Start Renting Games June 17

by Shane McGlaun

Once we got a few Redbox kiosks in my area, I stopped going to the regular movie store to rent flicks. I grew tired of the late fees and having to wait in lines behind idiots while idiots at the counter tried to check them out. It was very irritating. I started using Redbox as did a bunch of people, and it wasn’t long before all the rental stores in my city went out of business except one.

One of the things that I didn’t like about Redbox was that until not long ago they had no Blu-ray titles, and they still have no video game rentals either. The video game rental issue is getting fixed, and come June 17 you will be able to rent some games from Redbox at a price of $2 per day. That is a lot of money, it’s easy to watch a flick in a day for $1 or $1.50 depending on the format you get, but games won’t often be returned the next day and you’ll quickly rack up big charges for multi-day rentals, making normal rental stores cheaper if you have them in your area.

Redbox notes that right now 21,000 of its kiosks are slated to start carrying video games. The games will be for Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3 consoles. I can see people getting the wrong version for sure. I wonder if Redbox will offer a refund if someone rents a game for a family member and gets the wrong format.
