Rent Assassin's Creed 4 at the grocery store? Redbox rumored to offer Xbox One, PS4, Wii U games

Starting next month, you might be able to rent a copy of Super Mario 3D World or Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag while you're out shopping for groceries. According to NeoGAF forum members, the website for rental service Redbox last night listed Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U games in its "coming soon" tab.

Some of the games reportedly on offer are going to be Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Luigi Bros. U, Lego City Undercover, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Thief. The listings have since been removed.

Of note, users are reporting that some Redbox locations around the country already offered Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U games. However, the rollout is now expected to widen to more markets.

Currently, Redbox only offers Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii games for rental. Redbox is an American movie and video game rental company with more than 39,000 locations across the US, many of which are grocery stores.

GameFly, which does not own and operate physical rental kiosks like Redbox does, already offers Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U games.
