$2 a day seems a little steep, but I would probably just rip and return it.
If they made games a week-long rental and reduced the price per day slightly, I think this would generate much more interest.
Oooo...There's one in my local Shop n Save. I might try it out next time I go (If they stock it by then that is).
Goodbye game rental places, hello redbox!
that's pretty expensive
Depends, If you can beat a game less than 10 days, you are saving money on even the cheapest games available. Considering Redbox is usually updated with the latest releases, you are saving money on virtually almost game you rent vs. buying. That is unless your someone who is my cousin and is OCD about having the actual game sitting on his shelf for the rest of his life.
Otherwise, at a game rental store, it costs about $6-$7 to rent for 5 days. I don't know about you guys, but many games don't take the full 5 days.
I do think that $2 is expensive, it should be about $1.50 a day. But on Summer vacation, I'd probably beat games faster than 3 days if it isn't anything stupidly long and I don't really go for trophies with PS3 games.
That's not how RedBox works though. You only pay for a 1-day rental, and if you keep it longer, you get hit with much higher late fees.
What the F! So you mean I have to return the game and re-rent it if I want to continue playing?
This sucks, this means I would have to buy abundance amounts of alcohol and energy drinks if I want to beat a game within a day.
A movie is understandable. I can finish a movie in the duration time even in my sleep. Maybe they changed how it charges people with games?
It should still be a dollar a day even for games. It takes more time to beat a game than watch a movie yet they charge twice as much. Probably will cost more or equal to a bloackbuster game rental to beat an average game.
This might sound crazy, but Blockbuster offers better rates.
Actually injected you are wrong.
At least movie wise, it's 1 dollar a DAY, no matter how long you keep it, to a max of 25 days, then you own it. So if you keep it for 2 days, it's 2 dollars.
There are no late fees on Redbox.
I just stopped by a red box, the late fee is just an additional day + tax (which is no extra in cost for a day)
Maybe in Soviet Russia.
I forsee a lot of parents getting surprise bills on their credit cards.
"Yeah mom, I dropped that game off on my way to school! Promise!"
They must have recently changed policies or I was fed a bunch of bullshit. My friend has worked for RedBox for 2 months and explained how they hit people with late fees whenever the opportunity arises, and they make the majority of their profit from late fees.
That is steep though. But, that's good for them.
$2 a day Heck No!
umm... maybe they used to be, but every day for a movie is $1... I should know, I've done it
Edit: forgot the main reason I was gonna post
I've seen this advertised on Red Boxes themselves back in August... so i guess I win?
