Redbox Carrying Video Games Nationwide In June
Posted on Thursday, April 28 @ 14:15:59 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
What's your convenience store of choice? Where I used to live, 7-Eleven was the nearest store carrying Pop-Tarts and open at midnight. Now the nearest merchant of convenience is a Circle K. Neither of them had Redbox standing outside, though.
Now I'll have to go to the grocery store to rent a game in June. Redbox announced today that they'll begin carrying video games for rental at 21,000 locations nationwide. New video games will run you $2 a day, compared to $1 for DVDs and $1.50 for Blu-ray rentals.
It's true that video games have been available at some Redbox locations as a test for this nationwide push:
While I agree that it'll be a lot easier to rent a game or movie when it's right in the front of the grocery store, I think the internet will continue to hold the title of "one-stop shop for entertainment". Do you have a Redbox near you? If you do, are you sticking with GameFly?
