Report: GameStop halts used-games subscription service
15 November, 2017, 01:38
Customers will be able to purchase a PowerPass subscription online, but the recipient will need to visit a GameStop store to activate their subscription as well as pick out and return games. It's interesting to see that GameStop chose to pause the service because they didn't provide an explanation as to why they halted the program. The company said in a statement that it has identified some limitations to the service so has halted the service.
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. Once you return the game you can then check out another one. They've been told to store the material in their backrooms until further notice.
GameStop announced a new rental subscription service last month which would allow subscribers to rent as many used games as they wanted for a six-month period. Kotaku's sources claim that GameStop's antiquated computers weren't able to handle all of the programs requests, but isn't this something the company should have looked into before launching the service?

PowerPass was slated to launch on November 19, though Mooring's statement indicates that some people have already purchased the service. For $60 (which covered six months of the service), players could check out pre-owned GameStop games indefinitely.
GameStop has already begun asking its staff to throw away the store's Holiday Guide, which featured advertising for the PowerPass service, and to replace this week's weekly ad, which also centered around the launch of the new rental program. This could mean that PowerPass might make a comeback down the line, if GameStop fixes whatever issues they uncovered.
