There are some degenerate gamers/frat boys that will tip this thing over with a few of their buddies and take this to their dorm room. Hopefully Texas Tech, home to the first G-Box Gamefly rental kiosk won’t have many jackasses on campus.
“The kiosk program is a way to extend the GameFly universe into the physical world,” said Sean Spector, co-founder and senior vice president of business development and content for GameFly.
“I think it’ll allow students who don’t have the ability to get out to a Blockbuster to rent games,” (Spector) said. “Students who live in dorms or are on campus more often will have the ability to get recent releases.”
More units are expected to roll out around the country soon stocked with the latest games for the Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, allowing players to rent as long as they want for $2.49 a day ($1.99 for Wii titles), with an option to rent-to-own.
