Rumor: Redbox offers PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U rentals in April

For those happy few hanging out in front of a Walgreens who also want to play Super Mario 3D World, but just for a little while, good news: Rumors suggest Redbox will rent Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One games in April.

NeoGAF user Exile20 posted images of Redbox's Coming Soon page on Monday morning, which showed of a number of games for those consoles, including Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, LEGO City Undercover, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Thief, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and New Super Luigi U. Those listings were later spotted by Polygon, but have since been removed.

The vending machine movie and game rental business has a history of lagging behind other rental services in offering video games. Redbox didn't carry video games in most machines until 2011, and even now it still lists older games like 2008's Mario Kart Wii as Coming Soon. While Redbox hasn't officially confirmed that it will carry games for current consoles, these listings suggest it's improving its timing for game releases.
