I don't see it, but then again,not seeing anything for PS4 or Xbox One either. Looks like they might of taken all of the next gen consoles off the site.
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.

The Redboxes in Fresno, CA have had a Wii U category for like a year but it's always been empty every time I check it.

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
