As part of the test, consumers can visit www.redbox.com/games to see the current list of games offered by redbox. Then, once at the kiosk, users access the touch screen display to determine which titles and platforms are available at that particular location. Halo Reach (Xbox 360), NBA 2K11 (Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3), New Carnival Games (Wii) and Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3) are among the video game titles that will be available at redbox.
