Movie rental service Redbox today launched a games section, giving Redbox users access to a variety of PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii titles. Redbox vending machines are situated in over 21,000 different places across the U.S., and games will now be available for rent for $2 a day via these machines. Users are also able to reserve games online via the Redbox website, and then pick titles up from a machine later on. Although the catalog is currently limited, a number of newly released titles are available from the machines, including LA Noire, Infamous 2 and Red Faction: Armageddon. The service was first tested out last year, with Redbox noting that it planned to expand the test program into more U.S. regions. Talking to Gamasutra earlier this year, Joel Resnik, vice president of games for Redbox, stated, "At this point in time, we're focusing on the [home console market] based on the overall installed base of those platforms and [their use of the] physical media that we're familiar with."
