GameStop just suspended its PowerPass program

For now buying games at Game Stop requires old-fashioned monetary exchange

Some GameStop employees guess that antiquated POS (Point of Sale) systems in GameStop locations may be to blame for not supporting the demands that the PowerPass program would require. There's no additional charge on each rental, but you can only have one game checked out at a time.

"We are working through some of the program limitations we have identified to ensure the PowerPass subscription service delivers an exceptional experience for our customers", a spokesperson said in an email. It was a decent way to incentivize going to GameStop rather than just downloading all of your games.

GameStop's upcoming PowerPass used games subscription service hasn't even been officially launched yet, and it has already hit a pothole.

According to leaked documentation regarding PowerPass, the service was supposed to officially launch on November 19.

That's according to a new Wall Street Journal report, which claims both Nintendo and Universal are close to signing on the dotted line.

That means any in-store advertisements for PowerPass have been removed and put in storage until further notice.

Don't worry if you've already bought a PowerPass subscription, though. However, according to the wording in the statement that GameStop provided, it appears that at least some customers have been given early access to the service.

GameStop PowerPass isn't quite ready for showtime. And after every six months, subscribers could pick a free pre-owned game to take back home. The prominent gaming retailer has been fighting a losing battle against the increasing convenience of downloading games, a service that the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch all offer for each and every game on those consoles. 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. In the meantime, one alternative would be Microsoft's Game Pass program, which gives Xbox owners access to 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for $10 per month.
