GameStop Plans for In-Store Video Game Rentals

VIRTUAL BASTION

A few days ago, my attention was stopped short by this headline on Mashable:

GameStop basically just turned itself into a Blockbuster for video games

Wait…what?

Is exactly what I thought. And the article that followed said exactly what the headline promised. It seems GameStop is getting in the rental game…sort of.

In short, later this month GameStop is launching a new service called PowerPass. For the price of a new game, sixty bucks, users will be able to sign up for a six-month subscription during which time they’ll be able to rent games from the store, one game at a time. And at the end of your six-months, you’ll get to keep one game for free.
