GameStop introduces pre-owned PowerPass rental service

You will be able to return your games to any GameStop location, provided that you show the coupon code you used for your original rental. Is GameStop's new subscription program worthwhile for you? You'll also need to be a member of GameStop's PowerUp Rewards program, which fortunately has a free tier.

GameStop's service offers a couple of advantages over GameFly's.

Effectively it works out as $10 a month to rent one game at a time, with the ability to keep one that might cost more than $50 to buy at the end of it all.

GameStop, the video game store that has fallen from grace in the era of digital downloads, will start offering a subscription rental program, according to Mashable. The service would be available from November 19, 2017. For one, GameStop's physical stores should continue to exist, which means it should be easy to drive over to your local outlet and pick up the game you want on the day the impulse strikes you.

Selections are limited to pre-owned titles found in a physical store and not those found in GameStop's sizable online inventory, which potentially limits the selection a little.

It's a solid deal, but the best part might be that when the six months are up, you get to choose a preowned game to keep. Furthermore, Power Pass will only be available to PowerUp Rewards members.

For another, GameStop's plan is significantly less expensive as GameFly's base subscription plan allows you to rent one game at a time for $15.95 per month.

At the end of that period, anyone who's signed up will be able to keep the last game they've taken out.
