I have Netflix so I never bothered renting movies from Redbox or Blockbuster Express but
when games became available at Redbox I thought I would give it a shot because it seems
a good way to demo a full game for a day.
So today I went to a Redbox machine for the very first time to rent Dirt 3 for PS3.
It popped out of the machine and I took it back to my car. When I got back to my car to
check the disc for scratches I realized there was no disc at all! Somebody scanned the disc
and put a high res printout in the game case. I couldn't believe it! I called Redbox right away
and told them what happened.They refunded my 2 bucks back to my card
and they told me to put the 'game' back in the machine.
Redbox needs a new system of detecting their discs if the machine can be fooled
this easily. If somebody stole the game I am sure they can trace back to who did it,
and if that person used a stolen credit card or a prepaid credit card, they shouldn't
have bothered returning it.
Anyway, I thought I would tell you guys that if you rent a game from Redbox, check the
disc before you leave! This is just purely ghetto.
