In May of this year, Gamefly (a video rental service) acquired the digital distribution service, Direct2Drive and they have finally unveiled their plans to provide a new digital download system for the PC.
The service will offer over 1,500 Windows and Mac PC titles as well as allowing players to view trailers, videos, and screenshots of games. They will also be able to manage their queue of disc-based console games. Sean Spector, Co-Founder of Gamefly had this to say:
“We’re thrilled to bring digital to the gaming consumer in a meaningful way, as no other service or retailer brings physical and digital gaming together like GameFly. With a library of over 9,500 titles from over 300 first- and third-party publishers, GameFly members have the ultimate choice of how, what, when and where they game.”
GameFly is currently accepting applications for access to the closed beta of the new PC download service.
