If that wasn't enough, the service lets you keep the last game you borrow after each six-month subscription you make expires.

Mashable reports that the program will launch in November 19, just in time for the holidays, and could prove to be the gift that keeps on giving.

While GameStop has yet to confirm the Power Pass program, it's likely only a matter of time before we got an official announcement. The PowerPass program will reportedly only be available to PowerUp Rewards members, so the games can be tracked.

United States retailer GameStop has come up with an innovative solution that will help its brick and mortar stores stay relevant in the digital age. There's no limit on the number of games you can play during the six months, though you can only be renting one at a time. Both services are subscription-based, and both allow you to get your hands on nearly any kind of game you want, regardless of release date.

During Howard University's homecoming weekend recently, students feared for their safety after an active shooter report . Sutton called the deadly shooting a "horrible tragedy" and "nothing that anybody would've ever wanted to have happened".

You can join PowerPass if you have a GameStop PowerUp Rewards Pro membership also. As a member gains access to the Power Pass he/she would be able to rent any pre-owned games from GameStop.

The more you pay GameFly the more games you can borrow in a single month, but everyone gets the same GameStop PowerPass experience because there are no tiered plans.

At the end of that period, anyone who's signed up will be able to keep the last game they've taken out. Subscribers can check out one game for as long as they want, and when they're done they can bring it back to check out something else. That price eventually falls, but most gamers have already moved on to something new by then.
