Video game rental service Redbox announced that it is testing video game rentals through its in-store kiosks in Bakersfield, California. Bakersfield-area Redbox users can rent a variety of video games from such platforms as PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii for $2 a night plus tax. The addition of video games in the Bakersfield area is a test designed to gauge consumer interest in video game rentals. Redbox will offer video game rentals through more than 70 area kiosks.
Redbox offers DVD and Blu-ray movie rentals through its kiosks nationwide. Adding games into the mix will allow the company to compete with competitors like Blockbuster and online video game rental services like GameFly.
