Xbox Game Rentals

Xbox Game Rentals, Pre-Orders Now Accepted

Sunnyvale CA- November 8th, 2001 - The leading online video game rental service, RedOctane (www.redoctane.com ), announced today that they will begin to take pre-orders on Microsoft Xbox games. The Xbox games will be available online for the standard 7-day rental price of $6.95. Members of the RedOctane’s G2 Program will have unlimited access to Xbox games for a monthly fee of $16.95.

"The response from gamers to Xbox games has been very exciting," explains Kai Huang, CEO of RedOctane. "With only one week to go before the launch of the Xbox, we’ve seen G2 Unlimited Rental signups rise 29%, with most new members clamoring for key games like Halo, Oddworld: Munch’s Odyssey, and NFL Fever 2002. A lot of our G2 members have shown a keen interest in the Xbox games, which is great because they can play as many Xbox games as they want without worrying about due dates and late fees. The beauty of our program is that they can also rent GameCube, PlayStation 2, Dreamcast, and original PlayStation games in addition to Xbox titles."

Roughly 20 game titles by various publishers will be available on November 15th and RedOctane will carry most of them. With support from a number of Japanese and European game makers, as well as most North American game publishers, Microsoft looks to have an extensive game library by the spring of 2002.

In conjunction with the release of the Xbox, RedOctane will also be giving away an Xbox system in November. "All you have to do is go to the Xbox page on our website and sign up to win," stated Dean Ku, VP of Marketing for RedOctane. We’re very excited about Microsoft’s venture into video games and feel that this contest is a good way to drum up excitement for the Xbox."
