Gaming Insiders, take note. Since last August, Redbox has been running a few video game rental trials in select markets. According to a report on video game site Joystiq, the company is poised to bring video game rentals to “thousands” of its kiosks around the country. As in the test markets, video game rentals will cost $2 per night.
You can enter your ZIP code on Redbox’s website here to view kiosks renting video games in your area, along with the list of titles currently available. Online video game reservations are, regrettably, not available yet.
A search of my ZIP in the SLC area, one of the most Redbox-saturated markets in the country, revealed zero kiosks renting video games. How about your neck of the woods, Insiders? If there are video games available in your area, does the $2 per night price point make them a compelling rental?
