GameStop PowerPass unlimited games rental service has been delayed

Those who already subscribed to the service will be refunded.

In a statement provided to GameSpot, the retailer said it made a decision to "temporarily pause" the launch of the subscription service due to "a few program limitations" that GameStop discovered. You could only take one game out at a time before returning it to swap it for another. Now it's just a question of whether GameStop will upgrade its system, alter PowerPass to work with it, or just scrap the game-lending service entirely.

With PowerPass, subscribers would be able to rent an unlimited number of used games from the retailer, essentially making it an alternative to the local library and things like GameFly. Speaking to Kotaku, GameStop employees claimed they were instructed to remove in-store signs and materials advertising the service.

GameStop's upcoming PowerPass used games subscription service hasn't even been officially launched yet, and it has already hit a pothole. GameStop said that it was going to launch the service on November 19th. "We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests an exceptional service", GameStop told Kotaku. If unfamiliar, this program would cost $60 and would allow customers to rent as many used games as they would like within a six-month span, with customers getting to choose one of the games they rented to keep permanently, at the end of the subscription. Instead, the company said that "program limitations" is what caused the sudden stop in the service. This could mean that PowerPass might make a comeback down the line, if GameStop fixes whatever issues they uncovered. Some GameStop employees told Kotaku they suspected it was a result of some of the chain's 7,000 stores having old computers.
