Redbox games Looking to rent a game for the weekend? Starting tomorrow (June 17, 2011) Redbox kiosks from around the country will start stocking PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii games. You may have noticed games in your local Redbox before, but now everyone will be able to take part in it.

Redbox made a name for itself for renting out DVDs and Blu-rays for $1 and $1.50 a day respectively. Redbox tends to be cheaper and more convenient than traditional video stores.

When it comes to games, Redbox will rent each game for $2 a day. A single day is not really enough time to completely play through most games, but it can be looked at as a try before you buy service.

Just like movies, games can be reserved online or though the Redbox iPhone application.

  • Brink (PS3, X360)
