Redbox Rumored to Stock Wii U, Xbox One & PS4 Games Starting in April


Looking to rent some games for your shiny new console by standing in front of a Redbox in a seedy neighborhood? If the rumors are true, Redbox will make your life a whole lot easier this April when they finally start stocking big name titles for the Wii U, Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Like most gaming rumors, this one started on NeoGAF with a post from user Exile20. In his post he shows an image of Redbox’s Coming Soon section that oddly shows Mario Kart Wii as a new release, but it’s also surrounded by Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, LEGO City Undercover, New Super Luigi U and Super Mario 3D World. The rumor also spreads to Xbox One and PS4 releases, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

    1. Redbox currently stocks last-gen games, so you can go find 360 and PS3 versions of Thief, MGS Ground Zeroes and Dark Souls 2, as well as various outdated Wii titles, but they’ve yet to start carrying current-gen games.

      And I’m with you on the seedy part. I just moved out of Baltimore, MD a few months back and there were very few places there I’d risk hitting up a Redbox.

      1. Hmm, well maybe there’s some truth to the rumors!

        Yea, I wouldn’t have any good reasons to hit up the places that might have a Redbox. Not by myself anyway.

      1. There is plenty to love on all consoles right now really, between cross-platform, the indie market and the little bit of exclusives there are.

        The Division looks Van Dam delicious. I’m stoked for that and Destiny on Xbox One, but I’m mostly holding out for some of the future Wii U stuff.

  1. I saw them in the coming soon section a couple of weeks ago too. Thief on PS4 was on there and I clicked remind me when it’s in stock. Weird that they would put them up and then take them off again.

    1. Yeah, that’s what others were saying happened to them. I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to consider stocking them since the Xbox One and PS4 are both selling pretty well and the Wii U has been around about a year and a half.
