Redbox Will Rent Games For $2

In July, we reported on Redbox testing game rentals in select markets. And starting later this month, video game renters will be able to find their poison at even more Redbox kiosks.

The company revealed it’s expanding its test marketing of video game rentals, spreading the service to “thousands” of its 24,000 kiosks.

Although one night is usually all anyone really needs with a movie rental, it remains to be seen if gamers will be able to part with an addictive 10-hour-plus-long adventure. The pricing and 24-hour limit seem like a trap geared to get people to pay extra charges. Game renters, is the cost right for you?
