GameStop Offering Unlimited 6-Month Access To Preowned Games

GameStop Offering Unlimited 6-Month Access To Preowned Games

You can usually only buy the games that are "hot" right now from RedBox machines, but you can also usually find them in remote, tiny towns where GameStop would never think of opening a store.

USA retailer GameStop has come up with an innovative solution that will help its brick and mortar stores stay relevant in the digital age.

The $60 subscription, called PowerPass, lasts for six months at a time, and will include one free game to keep at the end of the subscription period. If that wasn't enough, the service lets you keep the last game you borrow after each six-month subscription you make expires.

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. As a member gains access to the Power Pass he/she would be able to rent any pre-owned games from GameStop.

Pot Smokers Have More Sex, Study Finds

Abducted female Pakistani journalist returned home
Ansari, who recalls that the last time she spoke to Zeenat was on August 12, 2015, started an online campaign seeking her release. The chairperson of missing persons' commission, Justice (retired) Javed Iqbal , confirmed Shehzadi's return to BBC Urdu .

A leaked copy of an ad in Game Informer magazine revealing GameStop PowerPass. So, a year of the service costs $120 and a month is $10.

To sign up for GameStop PowerPass you only need a subscription to GameStop's PowerUp Rewards program. The service would be available from November 19, 2017. It's similar to the rental service GameFly, but it's quite a bit cheaper and the free game promotion should allow players to get great deals - just choose a more expensive used game right before your subscription ends. Furthermore, Power Pass will only be available to PowerUp Rewards members.

This move of GameStop is an interesting offer to lure more gamers to their stores.
