Redbox Kiosks Now Offer Video Game Rentals
Top new releases are available, along with popular family and children’s games, for $2 a night.
Gamers can now rent video games locally at all hours of the day and night.
Redbox, the stand-alone kiosks at local retailers most known for their dollar-a-night movie rentals, now offer video games.
Games cost $2 a day and can be reserved online for easy pickup at the nearest Redbox location.
In Arnold, there are seven Redbox locations. Only two kiosks in Arnold are outside and offer around-the-clock access. The other five kiosks are inside grocery stores or a fast food restaurant.
Top new releases are available for rental, along with popular family and children’s games. A complete list of available titles is viewable online.
Games are available for PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360.
Redbox officials said the company began testing video game rentals at 5,000 locations across the country in August 2009. During that time, officials said, more than 1 million games were rented, proving that the customer demand was there as nearly 64 percent of Americans own at least one gaming console.
"With more than 21,000 Redbox locations slated to feature video game rentals alongside movies this June, Redbox will be the one-stop shop for entertainment,” company President Mitch Lowe said in a written statement.
