It was very worth it. So now you can soon expect to be trying out new games befor you buy them for the low price of $2 a night... Plus tax, at over 21,000 locations.

Here's the breakdown of the prices:
- DVD - $1 per night
- Blu ray - $1.50 per night
- Games - $2 per night

This means you should only see the red Box as sort of a "demo station" were you pay let's $2.25 to try out a game and decide if it's worth the $60 dollar investment. I know I would've loved to have this option be or 8 bought Metroid: Other M.
