Nice review. I was curious about how this would work. I have a red box just a block from my home but I never use it. Maybe I'll give it a look.

Meh...$2 a day, I much prefer blockbuster but since they're bust it seems I don't have much of a choice.

I don't rent a lot of games so Gamefly is out of the question...guess it's Redbox least until Blockbuster is truly gone.

Blaze9292820d ago

$2 a day isn't bad. 7 days max to beat a game and only spent at max $16 - hell yeah.

coolbeans2820d ago

It won't work well for me since it's tough for me to play the same game for so many hours (given I only have 1 day).

Zachmo1822820d ago

Nah thats a rip two bucks a day. I can go to my local video store and rent what ever game for $2.80 and thats for 2 days or 5 bucks for a week. Oh and even better i can keep that game for 30 days and owe 25 bucks and not even pay that late fee and still be able to rent games.

Still doesn't appeal to me. Wish they would lower it to the dollar a day like they do for the movies.

DaCajun2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

Movies only cost around $20 to buy and games are around $60 to buy, big difference. I do agree with you about wishing it was $1/day. Something for less is always better but I can see it from their point of view too. Maybe if it doesn't take off they might lower it in hopes it will succeed.

2 dollars is definitely a good deal to see if it's worth a buy. I'm sold, now to get it near where I live.

Redbox is still testing games in select cities, but they are branching out.

You can check if there's one near you with games here:

SoapShoes2820d ago

I never liked Redbox... Their selection is usually crap, I'd rather just go to Blockbuster especially since I have none very close to me anyway.

Elvfam5112820d ago

Dammit it's not available near me would tried it out....

tdogg060519912820d ago

Blockbuster Chapter 11ed so it's your only choice really. Unless you want to wait for gamefly discs.

Yeah, chapter 11 means they're still in business...I just rented a game like two hours ago.
