Beginning on June 17, 2011 all Redbox locations will begin offering video game rentals alongside their movie rentals. The price is currently set at $2 a day.

When asked about the announcement Gamefly co-founder Sean Spector said “I think both models can work. Look at Netflix and Redbox for movies.”

To me that $2 a day seems a little expensive considering Gamefly goes for $15.95 a month (~53 cents/day).  Then again I thought no one would pay $1 a night for one movie when Netflix gives you unlimited streaming and physical DVD / Blue Ray’s also for around 50 cents a day.

I guess if you are the type that tends to play through games in less than 24 hrs and don’t mind a little “convenience” fee it will work out to be a better deal for you.
