Netflix Won’t Be Renting Out Games After All
Last year, Netflix thought it would be funny to spin off their DVD and blu-ray rental business into a separate entity called Qwikster, and this new thing would also rent you video games.
Netflix has since cancelled that whole Qwikster thing, because it was dumb, and Reed Hastings told investors today, according to The Verge, that the also don’t plan to ever rent video games. Awwwww.
That leaves GameFly as the reigning video game online rental thingie. There are a few others out there, but none really come close to matching what GameFly does. Netflix would have, though. It would have been a real competition.
