First it was movies, now its seems we are likely to see an explosion in the video games rental market online. UK website Postbox Games has launched its offering to gamers across the land.
The service will allow members to rent video games and receive them in the post. With no late fees or due dates. Each game is sent out with a pre-paid postage envelope and gamers will receive their next game through the letterbox within one to three days.
