GameStop Announces New Subscription Model for Pre-Owned Games Called the “PowerPass”

If you’re still paying for physical copies of video games at your local GameStop, you’re in for a treat as the holiday season arrives because GameStop has announced a new subscription service for pre-owned games for their Power-Up Rewards members called the “PowerPass.”

The subscription costs the price of a new game, $60, and for six months you can rent out an unlimited amount of pre-owned games of your choice for any platform, play however long you want, and return it. The only caveats are that you have to rent one game at a time and again, you have to be a member of the Power-Up Rewards, which itself costs between $15 and $30 depending on which tier you go with. The best part of the subscription is that after the six months is over, you can choose any pre-owned game to take home and keep forever.

Some of you might be thinking that this is a not-so-good deal, because you won’t be able to play any new games, right? Wrong. Head into a GameStop a couple of days after a game release and you’ll discover(usually) a plethora of newly released titles in the pre-owned section.

Does this sound like a good deal to you? Let us know in comments!
