XBox 360 or PS3

Chiefs fans and video gamers. I'm starting a DVD Rental/Sales Kiosk Business (simply stated, it's like Redbox). My first kiosk will be up and running in a couple of weeks (hopefully the 2nd will be following soon). One of the many differences between my kiosk and Redbox is that I have the ability to rent (and sell) video games.

From other owner/operators I've talked to video games haven't proven to be as profitable as one would imagine. That being the case I'm going to tread very lightly with them.

My initial video game offering will only have 1 title (Madden 2011). My question is this, which is more the more popular platform XBox 360 or Playstation 3? My suspision is that it is a half dozen of one and six of the other so I'll need to offer both. I would greatly appreciate your input.

As we get closer to launch I'll be happy to give a free night rental (good for movies or games) to all who'd like to check it out (the first will be located in Lee's Summit).


Another difference between my kiosk and Redbox is that I can offer local businesses the opportunity to take advantage of the traffic flow at the kiosk and going past the kiosk through advertising. There are advertising opportunities:

1) Static advertising placed on side panels with movie box art (customers scan the pictures to see what's available and see your ad)

2) Multimedia advertising on a 26" LCD television on top of kiosk where movie trailors will run.

If you are interested in advertising your business PM me and I'll get you more information.

With a title like Madden, 360 will be the more popular platform, but perhaps not by a huge margin, especially when limited to one machine.

By the way, I think your business will fail. Nothing personal, just a hunch.

Thanks. I appreciate it. Care to expound on your opinion. I'm not offended so I'm not looking to get into an argument. Just curious.

360 is more popular for now.

As for the Kiosks, they are popular for now, but will eventually die off. Streaming movies like Netflix is the future. Just MHO

So you want to rent video games and only want to carry one title? The title you want to carry will have little to no value 8 months after you put it in the machine. I don't see this working.

I have a PS3, but my gut tells me that, for kiosk business, 360 games would be better. Maybe go to a local Blockbuster or someplace like that and ask them which console's games they rent out most.

The problem with netflix is that they don't get their movies as soon as they come out anymore. The last few new movies I have wanted are out in the rental places 2 weeks or 3 weeks before Netflix is allowed to rent them.

Thats because alot of the movie studios signed deals with Netflix to protect their "sell through" window.

It basically pushes the rental window back a month.

Redbox has a few deals too, just not as many for now.

DVD's are dying, the studios know it, but they are still milking it for all its worth.

Is the kiosk going to be outside? Because someone is either going to smash it or try to steal the tv. A lot of red boxes get their screens smashed. But, they are usually quick to replace them.

I'd go with Xbox since it's the more popular platform for madden. Maybe add a title like Halo Reach in the future, etc. Renting out a popular game on release date would probably make some $$$
