It's really unfortunate that this game isn't at Redbox.

Seeing as how Blockbuster (or the ones near me) don't even get new games, I'm a bit bummed that Redbox doesn't seem to be carrying this game. I guess there's no way to try before you'd buy.

@murisan: you still have a Blockbuster? Hell I live on an island off the east coast of Florida and we don't even have a Blockbuster anymore...

This. The very definition of 'try before you buy'.

Played it. Not enough of a "demo" for something they're asking $60 for.

I don't even think we have movie rental places 'round these parts anymore. We've got those "kiosks" or whatever, but no actual places.

@ChinaDontCare: That's real shitty. Never had that experience.

They have games at Redbox? They do not do that here, or anywhere in my town. 0.0 Either way, you could get on a ship and the people on said ship can get you the game for the low low price of free....... >_> <_<

They go for 2 dollars a day instead of 1 dollar. 
Bluray rentals also go for 2 dollars

Don't believe I've heard this complaint before. Kudos for being original.

@SomeDeliCook: Wow that is a great deal. Especially if you just rent it for a weekend or something. Better then spending 60 and then finding out you hate the game too.

Yeah, redbox is pretty much my jam nowadays. I blast through games, so it works out well for me.

Yeah, I recently bought the 15 dollar a month pass at blockbuster that allows me to have one game out at a time, which seemed great, and I checked on Tuesday for it, they said they'd have it on friday. I went back today, they said they still didn't have it and have no idea when it's going to come in, so great job blockbuster on doing everything in your power to get rid of the customer base that you still are actually retaining.

Odd though never think of redbox for game rentals since I just go through gamefly, now that they're handling pc games & give some % off depending on how long you been with them, it makes more sense to just go with that versus a physical box to rent things from. Never heard anything good with redbox so glad to avoid it.

Ain't worth it for me anymore, and it's too much of a game to try and make sure you get new games when they come out. Redbox is usually pretty good; I just think a lot of places didn't try to get DmC inventory for some reason.
