BY ALEX GILYADOV GameStop has announced a new unlimited used game rental service, and it's launching next week.

According to an advertisement posted on ResetEra, the subscription service, called Power Pass, lets you rent a used game, return it, and then rent another title as often as you'd like over a six-month period. At the end of this six-month period, you'll get to keep any one of the games you rented.

The six-month service costs $60, which translates to $10 a month. Signups will begin on November 19, and the pass must be activated by January 31 of next year. The service is limited to GameStop's PowerUp Rewards members, but a free version of the membership will work.

You'll only be able to rent games from GameStop stores and not via the company's online library. You'll also be able to purchase the service for someone else, so as long as they too are a PowerUp Rewards member.

Plans for the Power Play service have since been confirmed to Polygon by a GameStop representative.

My "take" on this is as follows, I can already smell the self-entitled assholes. Coming "out of the woods" because it's Unlimited. And you know people are going to abuse the hell out of this. Which means your going to be waiting very long to play a game. So you had better get use to waiting months on end. lol!
