GameStop is offering a full refund and letting players pick out one pre-owned game for free, which sounds like a pretty solid way to apologize. Whether or not the program's specifics will change as a result of the suspension remains unclear. This essentially turned GameStop into a kind of library where you can pay to take out any games you want to play.
GameStop's all-you-can-eat subscription to used games has been suspended, apparently over concerns with how the aging computer systems in the company's 7,000 stores can handle and track checkouts.
The spokesperson specified that the roll out was being paused due to "program limitations".
GameStop's entrance into the game-rental market comes amid the company's continued financial difficulties. "We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests an exceptional service", a GameStop spokesperson told Kotaku.

According to leaked documentation regarding PowerPass, the service was supposed to officially launch on November 19.
