After months of testing, Redbox has now unveiled its plan to let customers rent video games on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii for only $2 per night.  Redbox started in 2003 with a couple of kiosks, and now has grown to one of the largest DVD distributors in the U.S. Redbox originally only rented DVDs, but now has included blu-ray DVDs , and is now starting to rent video games. Redbox  is a huge competitor of Netflix, and now it can become a threat to Gamefly. This is due to the speed, ease of use, convenience and low-cost of Redbox.  Redbox has 25,000 Kiosks located at Shop-Rites, McDonalds, 7-Eleven, Wall-Mart, and many other places around the U.S.  Gamefly is $8 per month for one game at a time. With gaming on the rise and Redbox  now a part of this market too, this new program will undoubtedly  be successful.
