I didn't read the article, so I probably should...but can you have as MANY games "rented" at a time as you'd like?

For example, when I had Gamefly for 20 bucks a month you could keep 2 games out at a time.

So lets say Gamefly only allows 1 game to be "rented" at once and someone on Gamefly gets hooked on BF3 and plays it for 10 months. $100 spent on one game? lol wut. I know this isn't what most people will do, but the suckers will

On the PC, yes.
That's why it's called Unlimited.

Yes but, with the trend developing in DRM and the fact that you have to own a pass to play games like BF3 and others soon coming out means that it's not completely "unlimited" or "At cost", either.

I think that should be mentioned in the article but, alas, it's just eluded to.

If that 2nd line was sarcasm, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me.

unlimited never really means unlimited these days. Like on my Tmobile bill it says "Unlimited 4G Data- 5GB"

Gametap used to be my main PC game rental place. Sadly, the old GT faded away, never to be heard of again.

Even their free trial was great, you could play the majority of the games up there with the exception of some AAA titles.

Unfortunately I can't read the article, because the website is blocked at my place of employment.

But how will CD keys work in online games, such as BFII, COD, Halo? If its unlimited, why would any publisher sign on with this? It seems akin to buying as many games as you want for $10 a month, and that doesn't seem profitable for anyone.
