Feel like shooting some bad guys at the saloon or killing some zombies but are short on funds? Now you can rent either Red Dead Redemption or Dead Rising 2 each for only $2 a night from Redbox! Coinstar's little red boxes will play host to a small but good selection of video games. Gamers can select Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS games.
According to Redbox's statement to IGN,
"The addition of video games to the popular redbox kiosks is part of an ongoing test designed to gauge consumer interest in video game rentals."
Supposedly games have been available in test markets since 2009. Currently, they are not available near me in New Jersey. I like playing games for a number of days so the $2 price tag would definitely add up over time. This does seem like the perfect way to test a game before buying it.
Are games available in your area? Have you rented a game from Redbox yet?
