Sweet. The only local rental store around here wants a $30 deposit every time you rent a game.

All of our local Redboxes have had Wii U as an option since the console came out, this is really just "we're finally actually stocking the games"

Naturally Ground Zero's absent, despite being there for PS3/360. But then they would want you to pay $30 rather than $2 if they can help it, especially when they get more of that money potentially.

Still, I'd like to take AC4 and Thief for a spin, so it's good the next-gen consoles are finally being stocked.

They haven't offered Xbone/PS4 games yet.

This also might just be a test area. It would be nice if it went nationwide though, I wanna play DK :<

In the U.S it's one of the only ways to rent games, apart from mom and pop shops and Gamefly.

It pretty much pushed Netflix out of the disc market.

For $1-2, you can rent a DVD/Blu-Ray/Game. The boxes can be found outside or inside convenience and grocery stores. You can pick up and drop off at any box. It's awesome.

WTF? Netflix still offers disc rentals. Also I would argue that it's a better value, as you're paying per month vs per title.

You can pay $18/mo for disc and digital on Netflix, or 7.99 for digital and just grab the $1 movie whenever you actually want instantly. Especially since if you're not near a distribution center it can take a week between disc swaps.

At any box ?

But they have a limited space .... or did they invented teleportation and didn't told us ?

The logistics of this are making my brain hurt
