Gamestop Introducing New Preowned Video Game Incentive

Gamestop Introducing New Preowned Video Game Incentive”

GameStop is trying to make video game rentals cool again. Working in a different way to previous physical game rental schemes, it costs $60 for a six-month subscription, during which time you can rent any of GameStop's pre-owned library.

PowerPass lets you choose a game from GameStop's preowned library, take it home then swap it for something else when you're done. It might seem like an outdated service (Mashable compares it to the likes of Blockbuster), but it's actually much cheaper than Gamefly-a rental service that will mail you new games-for the same period of time. You can only choose preowned games that are offered at physical stores though. This is kind of a bummer, sure, but it's just fair.

At the end of that period, anyone who's signed up will be able to keep the last game they've taken out. For the uninitiated, PowerUp Rewards has three tiers, two of which carry an annual fee. The announcement of the GameStop Power Pass is a clear shift in strategy as brick and mortar video game stores keep finding it more and more hard to keep up with the advent of digital games.

GameStop's PowerPass scheme will start taking registrations on November 19. This could be the program GameStop needs to stay longer in the business, especially after announcing earlier this year that 150 of its stores will be closed.

GameStop PowerPass will require a $60 upfront payment that will be good for 6 months.
