GameStop 'PowerPass' program gives you unlimited access to used games

Polygon has emailed a GameStop representative for more information on what that entails. GameStop has made a decision to offer its PowerUp customers a rental program.

To qualify, gamers in the United States will need to be GameStop PowerUp Rewards members, but they won't need to pay for the Pro or Elite tiers.

GameStop's service offers a couple of advantages over GameFly's. You're free to return the games at any time. However, there seems to be no limit to the amount of times you can exchange pre-owned games, and it seems that you are allowed to keep one pre-owned game of your choice at the end of the six month period. Both services are subscription-based, and both allow you to get your hands on nearly any kind of game you want, regardless of release date. Likewise, you can only rent what's available in your local GameStop stores.

PowerPass lets you choose a game from GameStop's preowned library, take it home then swap it for something else when you're done.

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. Fingers crossed your town is full of big spenders who speedrun all the latest games. Furthermore, Power Pass will only be available to PowerUp Rewards members. Subscribers can check out one game for as long as they want, and when they're done they can bring it back to check out something else.

Mashable reports that the program will launch in November 19, just in time for the holidays, and could prove to be the gift that keeps on giving.

This is an interesting move from GameStop, as it emulates rental services like GameFly.
