Competition among digital game distribution services might soon heat up further. GameFly has announced an upcoming digital client that will include an "Unlimited PC Play" feature. This feature will allow subscribers to, in the company's words, "download and play as many Windows/Mac games as they want, from a large and ever-growing collection of titles."
The GameFly desktop client will purportedly offer a selection of 1,500 Windows and Mac games. It will also let folks rent discs (from a library of 8,000 different titles), buy used games, and pre-order future releases for both the PC and consoles. Judging by GameFly's preview video, the client will also have some social functionality a la Steam and Games for Windows Live.
Unfortunately, you may have to bide your time... and grab this summer's big releases from existing services. GameFly says the digital client won't launch publicly until "the holidays." A closed beta will start on September 8 for current GameFly members who either attend the Los Angeles launch event or sign up on this page.
