The American DVD, Blu-ray, and video game rental kiosk, Redbox, will only be renting out the first of two Max Payne 3 Xbox 360 discs when the game goes on sale this week.
Redbox's product description of Max Payne 3 explicitly states: "ONLY DISC 1 AVAILABLE. DISC 1 INCLUDES THE FIRST HALF OF THE SINGLE PLAYER GAME AND THE MULTIPLAYER PORTION OF THE GAME."
Redbox has a policy of not carrying multi-disc titles. A spokesperson for the company told The Consumerist that the decision to rent out one disc was logistical.
"Redbox kiosks are only equipped to rent out one disc per rental fee," the spokesperson said.
"Since customer feedback has told us that many of our game customers like to test out titles before they buy them, we've decided to offer Disc 1 of Max Payne 3 for Xbox 360 so that renters can try it out for a low daily rate.
"Disc 1 contains the entire online multiplayer mode and the first half of the extremely substantial single-player game. We think that's a great deal for just a couple of dollars a day, and we're excited to offer it! We've added a message on the website and on kiosk screens to let renters know about the limited game-playing."
If renters want access to Disc 2 they will need to purchase it from a retailer as there is currently no option to rent it from Redbox.
The PlayStation 3 version of Max Payne 3 comes on one disc.
