GameStop 'Temporarily Pauses' Unlimited Used Games Program

The retailer has not said when or if the program will be reinstated.

But according to a report from Kotaku, just days before the service's full launch on November 19th, GameStop has chose to "temporarily pause" the roll out of the new service. Essentially, it turned your local GameStop into a video game library.

Palmares é reconhecido como patrimônio cultural do Mercosul
A Serra da Barriga é tombada pelo Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional ( Iphan ) desde 1985. A certificação da área como patrimônio cultural do Mercosul foi oficializada neste sábado.

Kotaku reports that GameStop employees have been instructed to remove signage advertising PowerPass from stores. Under its six-month terms, the program would allow customers to take any used game from a local store's catalogue, play it as long as they wished and exchange it for another until the subscription expired. It was a decent way to incentivize going to GameStop rather than just downloading all of your games. However, by not announcing a reinstatement date for PowerPass (and by being ambiguous about why it was paused in the first place), GameStop has raised a few red flags.

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. "W$3 e will allow [guests] to bring the pass, and video game they have checked-out, back to receive a full refund". "In addition, we will allow them to pick out any Pre-Owned game for free".

Diabéticos usam caixões para alertar para a gravidade da doença
Estimativas OMS dão conta de que até 2025, a previsão é de que o número de afetados chegue quase a 400 milhões. Em todo o mundo, são cerca de 200 milhões as mulheres que sofrem desta doença.

Assuming PowerPass is relaunched in a functional manner sometime in 2018, this is still not the outcome GameStop wanted right now. Meanwhile, the Steam platform from Valve made this the preferred method for PC gamers years ago.

Keep an eye out as GameStop provides more information about PowerPass, and possible changes to the program. Although GameStop didn't get into specifics, it did confirm that it has chose to delay the introduction of the program - for now. This would make a great deal of sense and lines up with the quiet soft-launch so far.
