GameFly, Inc. Goes Digital
GameFly Subscribers Will Have Access to Free PC Games
Digital Client Will Be The One-Stop Shop for Casual and Hardcore Gamers Alike
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GameFly, Inc., the #1 online video game rental subscription service will be launching a new digital client, the one-stop shop for gamers, this holiday season. The biggest bonus for active GameFly subscribers will be the addition of free "Unlimited PC Play" which allows them to download and play as many Windows/Mac games as they want, from a large and ever-growing collection of titles. Gamers will have unprecedented flexibility in how they want to consume games, whether it is renting discs by mail from a library of over 8,000 titles, downloading any of the more than 1,500 Windows/Mac games for sale, pre-ordering new console and PC releases or buying used games – all managed via the desktop client. Casual to hardcore gamers can get all of their gaming information with up-to-the-minute news, a live feed and archive of HD trailers, videos, and screenshots, and a robust social component for real-time discussions of what's hot and what's not. In addition, users will be able to manage their entire library of games across all gaming platforms, as well as create custom libraries to share.
"We're thrilled to bring digital to the gaming consumer in a meaningful way, as no other service or retailer brings physical and digital gaming together like GameFly," said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. "With a library of over 9,500 titles from over 300 first- and third-party publishers, GameFly members have the ultimate choice of how, what, when and where they game."
GameFly will launch their closed beta at a Los Angeles event on September 8, 2011, exclusively for GameFly members. All attendees will walk away with beta codes for themselves and a friend.
