Some of the newer available titles include LA Noire,Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, Infamous 2 and Brink.
The kiosks will continue to offer DVDs and Blu-ray movies for as little as $1 and $1.50 per day, however. They are located in drug, grocery and convenience stores across the US. Users can reserve titles over on redbox.com or through the free iPhone app and pick them up at whatever Redbox location they choose.
