April 1st:

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (PS4, X1)
Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS4, X1)
Killzone: Shadowfall (PS4)
NBA 2K14 (PS4, X1)
Thief (PS4, X1)

May 27th:

Watch_Dogs (PS4, X1)

Hope they get MGS5. The service would be extremely useful for a game like that.

I've been waiting as well. First time I didn't get a game the day after release from GameFly. Had an open slot in my GameQ and everything.

Was hoping to see Knack and Battlefield 4 on that list. Want to play through both of them, but have no interest in paying full price for them.

Oh well, I'll just rent thief then.

Redbox has had Xbox One games since launch? Cool to see they're adding PS4 games though.

They've had PS4 games since launch too. The links for the buttons on the website were always broken though...

No, they may have had PS4/XB1 games in some cities. But it's never been an option for me.

Reserve a game online, go to the Redbox you picked and use your credit card to pick it up; return it the next day. Last gen games were a couple bucks a night.

For maximum utility pick up your game right after midnight; you get it all that day, and all the next day until midnight 9pm according to other people.

You can also take your chances and just go to any redbox but I think it's smarter to reserve a game ahead of time so you don't waste your time if what you want isn't there.

It's $2.50 a night for games. Sometimes they do free rental codes. Also, there's a best time of day to rent from Redbox to maximize time with the game, I just don't remember when.

Edit: Neuromancer is on top of Redbox rental best practices.

I was thinking this as well, the PS3/360 versions are available now, but people with PS4/XB1 shouldn't have to pay as much as it is and have the ability to rent that game

12:01 am. Return by 9 pm the next day.

You'll have essentially 45 hours to play.

Ah, so that makes sense why I was able to rent at 9am on a Tuesday and return it at noon on Wednesday and only be charged the one day rental. I guess I could have kept it for another nine hours. I always thought it was a hard 24 hours from rental time. Cool.

Redbox is getting better and better about games.
I live out in the middle of nowhere but my Redbox actually had Ground Zeroes the very night it released.
