Redbox will begin to rent out video games at DVD rental kiosks around the US this month, expanding on earlier tests in limited markets, and one-upping its main competitor Netflix, which doesn’t offer video games yet. The company had already been testing video game rentals back in 2009, but the company is currently expanding the test to include additional markets in the West, Midwest and Atlantic coast as part of an ongoing test designed to gauge consumer interest in video game rentals. Games for the PS3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS are offered, and while the selection isn’t very large, it’s comprised of mostly recent, top-selling releases and will set you back $2 a day, which is twice as much as a DVD movie, and $0.50 more than a Blu-ray flick.
