Today, GameFly announced that this holiday season, they’re launching their own digital client. Here’s the curious part: the digital client is going to allow an unlimited PC play option, where Mac/PC gamers can download as many PC games as they want, as long as they are GameFly subscribers. It’s going to launch with 1,500 titles and grow from there. If this all sounds a bit too good to be true, you can hop over and sign up for the GameFly digital beta, which launches September 8.
My first reaction to reading this particular piece of news was a dumbfounded “what?” Looking at it again, I’m still not sure how I feel. It’s so casually tossed out there it’s hard to believe it would be a big deal, but the implications seem like they could be huge. It’s almost exactly how I felt when Valve was talking about Steam on the PS3. That “this could change everything” feeling. Seems like this could shake the PC gaming market a little in unexpected ways. But maybe that’s just me.
