Redbox reveals game rental stats and trends (infographic)

Owned by parent company Coinstar, the DVD and game rental kiosk chain Redbox has been so disruptive in the entertainment industry that it helped Netflix hammer the final nail in Blockbuster’s coffin. Redbox has doubled its annual revenue year after year, cutting so deeply into Hollywood’s piggybank that several movie studios attempted legal action, eventually settling to impose a 28-day delay before new releases hit Redbox machines.

Gonna have to check out redbox again. I forgot they did games.

redbox is good, but still, their selection could be better

I don't rent games, but the Redbox kiosks near me are always out of the gaming options.

LOL!

CoD takes up three spots on the top 7 games rented. The platforms in descending order, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. That's right Wii!!! WII!!!

Yep, it sits right behind the PS3 version. Amazing! XD

they always have stocked less ps3 games, so it's no surprise it came in 3rd. which is unfortunate because the 360 discs that you get from there are usually scratched to hell if not brand new.

It seems you didn't understand that comment at all.

nukeitall1946d ago

Indeed the person did!

People only see what they want in a comment, unfortunately!
