    I don't know if this will take off as well as the video rentals. Gaming takes longer than 2 hours and at $2 a day it adds up fast to the price of a game.

    If it was $2 for 2 days I think it would be a better deal.

    But nobody want's to rent for one day. Force the consumer to buy two days at $1 a day.

    Depending on how well they keep the kiosk stocked would depend on whether or not I look into it. It takes me roughly 3 days to beat a game and I use Gamefly with 2 games per month. Takes me 3 days to beat a game and 4 days to get the next one, it may work out pretty well for me to get some more gaming in :D

    I guess this would be good to see if you like a game or not or if you go through games quickly. I prefer Blockbuster though. I get to keep a game for $14 for a whole month plus a steady supply of Blu-ray disks.

    I can find out if a game is no good in a day. $2 for going to a convenient Redbox and renting a game is a good deal even if I end up having to buy it later. Plus, they have free nights for movies all the time with promo codes. Same thing might happen with games.

    In my younger years, I could probably finish a single player game with $4, maybe $6 with a three day weekend. Beats $60.

    :lol: Guess I'm still in my younger years then, and speaking of coupons for kiosks, I signed up for the Blockbuster kiosk in my local Publix, and I have 5 coupons that haven't expired yet for buy one get one, buy two get one, and 3 freebies :D

    Got a wife or kids? Saturday my wife went off to see a movie with a friend and I pulled weeds, mowed the lawn and did dishes since it was the first real dry day in quite a while. I was planning on playing some Portal 2.
