GameStop 'Temporarily Pauses' Unlimited Used Games Program

  • For now buying games at Game Stop requires old-fashioned monetary exchange

They've been told to store the material in their backrooms until further notice.

GameStop's new initiative to have a games rental service has been paused for the time being. "We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests an exception service". (Those titles would be limited to ones offered at the store's physical locations, rather than through the chain's online inventory.) PowerPass's $60 price-tag would cover six months of playing and swapping, after which customers could select one preowned game to keep permanently.

GameStop's game subscription service is here, aaaand it's gone. The company says that those who have already purchased the service can get a full return.

GameStop's all-you-can-eat subscription to used games has been suspended, apparently over concerns with how the aging computer systems in the company's 7,000 stores can handle and track checkouts.

At least 16 dead after boat capsizes in Andhra Pradesh
Home minister N Chinna Rajappa announced at 8.30 pm that 16 dead bodies were retrieved till now. The National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF ) are undertaking search and rescue operations.

GameStop is temporarily suspending its recently launched PowerPass program. To sweeten the deal, they can bring home any pre-owned game for free for their troubles.

GameStop's upcoming PowerPass used games subscription service hasn't even been officially launched yet, and it has already hit a pothole.

PowerPass has the potential to be a very popular service - that is if the catalog of games available is relatively large and up-to-date. However, by not announcing a reinstatement date for PowerPass (and by being ambiguous about why it was paused in the first place), GameStop has raised a few red flags.

A fully functioning and consumer-friendly PowerPass program might give customers a reason to choose GameStop over their respective gaming platform's online marketplace, but for now, it seems the physical video game library dream will have to wait.
