New GameStop rental scheme lets you play unlimited number of pre-owned games

GameStop Offering Unlimited 6-Month Access To Preowned Games

Now US retailer GameStop is introducing its own version, dubbed Power Pass, on November 19.

The shift to a digital marketplace hasn't been too kind to GameStop, so now the brick-and-mortar video game outlet is attempting to focus on rentals in addition to its usual sales of new and used boxed games. Stay tuned to Paste, as GameStop is sure to release more details in the near future.

The subscription requires that the user be a PowerUp Rewards member, and the offer will be available only to the used game catalog in a store (i.e. physical discs), not from GameStop's online library.

GameStop is rolling out an all-you-can-eat subscription service for its used game inventory, according to an advertisement spied in a magazine over the weekend.

Astros' Gurriel suspended for racist gesture at LA's Darvish
Some top sports columnists urged Manfred to suspend Gurriel immediately while others said he should be let off the hook . Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel is facing possible punishment after making a racist gesture during the World Series .

The $60 covers six months of rental time and at the end of that period, players are able to choose a pre-owned game to keep. Both services are subscription-based, and both allow you to get your hands on nearly any kind of game you want, regardless of release date. The basic, free membership should be adequate for taking advantage of Power Pass, but you can get extra benefits for either $14.99 or $29.99 per year.

For another, GameStop's plan is significantly less expensive as GameFly's base subscription plan allows you to rent one game at a time for $15.95 per month. As a member gains access to the Power Pass he/she would be able to rent any pre-owned games from GameStop.

The last game you rent during your six-month subscription is yours to keep forever. That price eventually falls, but most gamers have already moved on to something new by then.
