[JS] GameFly To Add Unlimited PC Play This Holiday. - Page 3

post #21 of 103
This is a) never gonna happen or b) have about 3-4 year old games or at least a 6 month wait before being able to play "new" releases.

No way is EA gonna give them BF3 the day it comes out - allowing people to play it for a month for $10, taking away from real sales

Not really. I could easily buy 40-60 indie games for that. Besides, he might be picking up old AAA titles.

I don't see why producers wouldn't allow their games through this service, think about it, they will earn $120 a year per user (this is considering nothing goes to Gamefly) if I were to play a game, like lets say, BF3, I would pay $50? And I would probably play it in 1-2 years... That's more than double the earnings with Gamefly, than with traditional selling methods (Origin, DVD)

Very interested in this, wouldn't have to worry about ever buying a bad game ever again, and as soon as you're done with one game you just move on to the next. Even if $10 a month is only temporary I don't see them charging to much more, or at least I hope not.

i think you are ignoring some very obvious things. that $120 a year must be SPLIT among developers. it is not going to just one developer. also, gamefly obviously is in it for business so they get their cut as well. in the end, a developer like EA may receive $40 the entire year whereas they can sell you a single game for $50. don't get me wrong, i want this to happen as well, but i don't think the decision is so clear cut for developers as you suggest.

There is a PC Gaming arcade near my house.
They get all the latest games and you can go in and play all of them any time you want as many times as you want.
They charge by the hour. They have steam accounts for each pc.

Why would something like this be any different?

The business model would be different and the licensing...but its not like its impossible to imagine them pulling this off.

Most of us will never buy another COD game ever again....but I wouldnt mind renting it, beating the single player, and then returning it. Sure beats the idea of pirating the game.

I hope they get it going.

I don't think any of you realize how far my jaw dropped reading this, and how many tears I cried thinking this is either a lie or a catch.
