GameFly makes a play to be the Netflix of video games.
Video game rental and subscription service GameFly has announced a game streaming service through its acquisition of Playcast Media Systems. The service will be provided exclusively through the Amazon Fire TV media device at launch, with customers being able to stream a variety of popular titles which are bundled in packs.
“We’re excited to offer the GameFly streaming service worldwide with Playcast’s market ready and scalable technology,” beamed David Hodess, CEO of GameFly. “This represents the perfect evolution of GameFly by extending its mission of providing the highest quality video games available to gamers however they want to play. We are also very pleased to launch on Amazon Fire TV to make the service available to US consumers.”
Game packs are priced between $6.99 and $9.99 a month, with six themed selections available at launch.
There’s nothing too recent in first batch of games but there are some good titles nestled in there, and Dark Void too.
