GameStop Announces Rental Program That Sounds Pretty Great

Introducing GameStop PowerPass.


As digital games continue to grow in popularity, retailer GameStop is adding a new subscription service offering to encourage people to choose physical games and head into brick-and-mortar stores. The retailer has announced game rental program that sounds like a pretty solid deal.

GameStop PowerPass, as it's being called, is a program launching this holiday that lets you play as many pre-owned games as you want for six months. For $60, you can pick up any pre-owned game and return to the store to swap it out for a new one as much as you want for a period of six months. At the end, you can choose any game to keep.
