Gamestop Temporarily Halts Used Game Rental Program Roll-out

And after every six months, subscribers could pick a free pre-owned game to take back home.

GameStop has not said when the program will be reinstated.

The program, as it was originally revealed, works like this: For $60 you get a 6-month rental subscription that allows you to visit any GameStop store and "rent" one of the used games in stock.

"For those guests who have already purchased the service, we will allow them to bring the pass, and video game they have checked-out, back to receive a full refund", the GameStop representative added. A GameStop rep since confirmed the news, telling Kotaku, "We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests with an exceptional service".

The plan wasn't fully scraped, per those sources, as they were supposed to store the materials in the back room, indicating they would be put to use in the future.

For now, buying games at GameStop requires old-fashioned monetary exchange. Speculation has come about suggesting that the company's outdated computer system isn't capable of handling the new program.

The "few program limitations" that the GameStop spokesperson left undefined could be any number of things: PowerPass's price, its duration, the games customers can keep after the program expires, or anything else. There's no timing yet for the rental program's return, but it doesn't sound like GameStop has any intention of making the temporary hold more permanent.

What about anyone who already signed up for PowerPass during the soft-launch?
