The PowerPass program was originally set to cost $60, and allow customers to check out a used game, play it as much as they wanted, and return it to swap for another title as many times as they wanted in the six-month period. 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. After six months, you could keep one of the games.
Kotakureports that GameStop employees have been instructed to remove signage advertising PowerPass from stores. For customers who had already bought in on the PowerPass program, GameStop is offering a full refund, plus an additional used game to make amends.
GameStop's game subscription service is here, aaaand it's gone.
That means any in-store advertisements for PowerPass have been removed and put in storage until further notice.
Update: Asked for comment, GameStop replied to Polygon with this statement. In fact, GameStop has given no indication when or if PowerPass will be resuscitated. In addition, we are allowing them to pick out any Pre-Owned video game for free. Meanwhile, the Steam platform from Valve made this the preferred method for PC gamers years ago.
GameStop isn't exactly renowned for their exemplary reputation as a games retailer.
GameStop hasn't specifically identified why the program is shutting down so soon. In the meantime, one alternative would be Microsoft's Game Pass program, which gives Xbox owners access to 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for $10 per month.
It's understandable for a new program to experience hiccups as it approaches its launch - that's what soft launches are for, after all.
