GameStop Suspends PowerPass Subscription Games Program

(Those titles would be limited to ones offered at the store's physical locations, rather than through the chain's online inventory.) PowerPass's $60 price-tag would cover six months of playing and swapping, after which customers could select one preowned game to keep permanently.

Either way, the PowerPass program is now suspended and there's no word whether or not the program will be reinstated.

Kotaku reports that some Gamestop employees believe the company's archaic point-of-sale computers can't handle the PowerPass program.

Coliseum Capital Management Llc sold 3.26 million shares as the company's stock declined 59.69% while stock markets rallied. The ANN segment offers feminine classics and fashion choices, sold primarily under the Ann Taylor and LOFT brands.

All the way back in September, GameStop announced its PowerPass program.

"We have elected to temporarily pause the roll out of the new PowerPass subscription service, based on a few program limitations we have identified", a GameStop spokesperson told Kotaku. With said subscription, gamers could enter GameStop and pickup any used game within the store to take home.

Update: Asked for comment, GameStop replied to Polygon with this statement.

GameStop isn't exactly renowned for their exemplary reputation as a games retailer.

Assuming PowerPass is relaunched in a functional manner sometime in 2018, this is still not the outcome GameStop wanted right now. In addition, we are allowing them to pick out any Pre-Owned video game for free. Still, even in areas with poor download speeds or rampant data caps from ISPs, customers might be inclined to order new games from Amazon rather than go to a retail outlet. This would make a great deal of sense and lines up with the quiet soft-launch so far. 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.
