Redbox, the vending machines that currently rent movies for $1 per day, announced today that the company will begin rolling out video game rentals to more than 21,000 machines starting June 17. The movies will rent for $2 per night.
Redbox had been testing video game rentals at 5,000 locations over the past two years. The company claims to have rented over a million games in the 2 year trial. Redbox says they will cater the 64% of US households that have a game system.
“Redbox will make discovering the latest games as easy as a trip to the local grocery, convenience or drug store,” said Joel Resnik, vice president, games, redbox.
