If you were around in August, you might have heard about GameFly's plans for a game download service with an "Unlimited PC Play" feature. (We did, after all, cover it.) Good news: the service is now in open beta, and prospective users can download the PC client software right here on GameFly.com.
GameFly says the service features "over 1,500 PC & Mac titles," which users can "pre-order, buy, and download." Console games can be rented through the app, as well, although I'm guessing there's no downloading involved there. Oh, and of course, the service allows members to "play hundreds of downloadable titles . . . at no extra charge with Unlimited PC Play."
According to Shacknews, the unlimited package features a couple hundred games, including blockbusters like Assassin's Creed and Saints Row 2. The site quotes GameFly as saying it's "hard at work expanding our catalog of PC titles for our users to play for free in the Unlimited PC Play section," so there's going to be more where that came from.
