The movie “vending machine” rental company RedBox has just begun their march towards video game rental dominance, debuting their new $2 per night video game rental program.
The new video game addition to the RedBox lineup includes Xbox 360, PS2 and PS3 games, alongside Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii discs.
While $2 per night may seem like a steal, even Blockbusters $9 rental price for 5 day rentals beats the video rental discounters pricing. Then again I tend to beat games in 1 to 3 days and so do many other gamers. Perhaps paying $4 – $6 for a game you’ve beaten is still better than $9 considering the game will probably collect dust for the last 2 – 3 days.
The actual selection of games is still pretty slim, but more titles are expected to be added in the near future. [via ZatzNotFunny]
