Well that sucks. Are video game rentals not as popular as movie rentals or something?

They literally stopped today where I'm at. Tried to rent Fallen Order last night but it declined my card for some reason. (Realize now that it was because they were taking it away). Went back this morning to use my friend's card and the rent games option was gone, you could only buy.

Seems like they'd have a lower profit margin since unlike a DVD or Blu-ray, only a PS4 can play a PS4 game and with the rate games come out at, people only really would rent ones for the campaign but not multiplayer. Figuring out which ones would be popular rentals, and even then which ones are popular for more than just the launch month? I can get why that would just be considered too much hassle vs stocking more copies of big releases.

I imagine there was more issues with theft with games. People replacing the discs and codes.

Ive honestly only rented a game from Redbox once. The ones in my area have pretty much no selection.

it was always like 4 games. three of which were Xbox shooter, PlayStation shooter, and whatever Wii Just Dance game was still keeping the platform technically alive.

Every time I rented a game they'd be scratched beyond playability.

I remember when they had week or two of free rentals and I got through FFXIII-2 and Uncharted 3.

Those were good times.
