GAME To Launch Games Rental Service

GAME To Launch Games Rental Service

UK videogames retailer, GAME, announced their plans to start an online games rental service, similar to that offered by Love Film.

For a subscription fee, gamers will be able to rent up to two games at once and when a title is posted back the company will send another on the customer's list.

"The new GAME Rental service further strengthens our customer offering, with a strong high value proposition. Customers can now buy, download and rent games from," said Alex Croft, managing director for GAME Group's Online Business.

"The launch of GAME Rentals comes at a great time with so many compelling titles being released, providing our customers with the opportunity to try games before they buy and also to explore new types of games they wouldn't otherwise have played. This is another new service from that will help customers enjoy even more games."

GAME group recently reported a sales boost of 16.6 per cent over the Christmas period, in part due to "exceptional demand" for single format titles.
