GameFly to launch ‘Unlimited PC Play’ download service, offer less incentive to leave the house

Well there goes any chance of getting my partner away from the gaming console this summer.

GameFly hasn’t wasted any time jumping into the digital download waters after acquiring IGN’s Direct2Drive platform a little over two months ago. Set to launch September 8th in beta form, its new “Unlimited PC Play” service will offer subscribers access to 100-plus downloadable PC and Mac titles, with hundreds more expected in time for the official end of year launch. Fans of the video game rentaloutfit’s snail mail subscription service don’t have to worry about a shift to digital only, as the company has no plans to abandon its “unique combination of console and digital PC game offerings.” Interested in getting an early peek at the new platform? If you live in the Los Angeles area, you can look forward to a planned beta launch party next month, where access codes for the new, invite-only service will be distributed. The rest of you PC gaming warriors will just have to settle for a sign-up page at the source.
