Redbox U.S. Video Game Rental Via Kiosks

Redbox, the American company that specializes in “Vending DVD Self-Service Kiosks,” has now announced that it will offer video games to hire. Kiosks will be dotted around the U.S. this month in a bid to expand their market. This follows on from trial tests that had been carried out on a restricted market.

According to Samuel Axon at Mashable, gaming techno heads will be able to enjoy PS3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS games from a rental listing. It seems that the more up-to-date releases will be accessible as oppose to the older style games. Redbox kiosk locations can be found by logging on to the company’s official website as well as the advantage to search specific games. The concept of renting out video games has been an idea in the pipeline since August of last year. Redbox has commented by saying, “Redbox will be expanding its video game rental test to include additional markets in the West, Midwest and Atlantic coast,” in a bid to gain customer feedback and to monitor the rental gaming market.

What we do know, is that rental costs will be $2 per day. Video games will work in the same way as DVD and Blu-ray rentals, in relation to the returns policy. Although competitors “Netflix” are on a level pegging with Redbox, they do not offer video games. On the otherhand, Redbox have still a little way to go before introducing online streaming.
