You can rent a game from hastings for the whole week for $7... Some of us have jobs/stuff to do and can't afford to play a game 24/7 to beat it. Personally I'm lucky to finish a 15 hour game in 1 week.
Yeah.... i didn't read the article, sometimes the headline is enough on techspot
Now, my true comment. - i'm a little disappointed with redbox, their selection per machine was like 1-4 per machine. Mostly they were kids games and a majority was Xb360 (inb4 ps3 no games) hopefully this will boost the selection in my local redbox machines.
What will happen to all the developers that want to focus on a Single Player only game? I'm sure rental stores have additional fees they have to pay to the publishers for rights to offer a game for rental but will it be enough to support those SPonly games?
