No More Video Games? | Redbox

Redbox kiosk
Redbox is leaving the video game business, as many gamers were disappointed to learn when they attempted to rent games from the company’s iconic red kiosks this week.

Redbox has since confirmed this news on its Facebook page, saying,
We’re excited to shift more focus into giving you the options to watch movies the way you want including physical media, streaming On Demand, and with upcoming new and exclusive content.
Redbox Tips
Redbox told The Verge that it is “permanently transitioning out of the games business” to focus exclusively on movies. Although video game rentals are no longer available at kiosks, Redbox said that games can still be purchased from its kiosks “through the end of the year.”
This means that you might be able to get a good deal on video games before they disappear from the kiosks forever.
