GameStop PowerPass: 5 Things to Know

GameStop PowerPass: 5 Things to Know”

You will also be unable to choose from a store's online catalog and must pick a game off of the shelves. There's no time limit for holding onto a game, and you can play as many as you like during the six months.

Earlier today, we saw a leaked GameStop ad for a new service called PowerPass.

This year has been a mixed one for GameStop and their newest strategy of Power Pass to rent out games from physical stores is quite a hard one especially when things have become completely digital these days.

The more you pay GameFly the more games you can borrow in a single month, but everyone gets the same GameStop PowerPass experience because there are no tiered plans.

So, effectively, for the price of a brand new game, you can (theoretically) play through multiple games and add one to your library permanently.

In effect, this partially puts GameStop in direct competition with RedBox, which already enjoys a bit of an edge in the game rental business with its widely dispersed units. You're free to return the games at any time.

Gamers can pop into any location, take home a pre-owned game and then simply exchange it for a new one when they're finished with it.

A rental subscription allows GameStop to offset its troves of pre-owmed game inventory while getting revenue from subscriptions. Mashable reports that despite other reports, PowerPass membership does not require a separate Power-Up Rewards subscription, which would otherwise be an additional cost on top.

End your subscription term with a game that recently launched, and you've almost recouped the cost of the subscription.
