GameFly expanded into streaming not that long ago, with a new service that launched in June. However, it was a relatively limited launch: in order to access the service, you had to use an Amazon Fire TV set-top box. Now the company is moving onto additional hardware by launching on select Samsung smart TVs starting today. […] Gamefly’s service is a bit different from all-you-can-eat streaming services like Netflix: instead of one fixed price that gives you access to all games, Gamefly lets you pay a monthly fee of $6.99 to access a bundle of seven games. Currently the library is relatively limited at around 40 games, but it does include some notable titles like Batman: Arkham Origins and numerous Lego games. – Andrew Webster, The Verge

GameFly’s new streaming service wants to be Netflix for games

GameFly’s streaming service works a bit differently than something like Netflix. Instead of an all-you-can-play assortment of games for a fixed monthly price, users can rent bundles of games for $6.99 a month each. At launch there will be six bundles to choose from, each with seven games, and each based around a particular theme: you can rent a collection of different Lego games, for example, or adventure games like Darksiders or the Arkham series of Batman games. A more premium “gamer pack” is also available, giving you access to 16 games for $9.99 per month. – Andrew Webster, The Verge
