GameFly (parent company of Shacknews) has launched the open beta of its PC client. The downloadable program--now accessible to all--allows GameFly members the ability to manage their GameQ, buy and rent games, and most importantly, read Shacknews stories in an alluring white-on-black format. As a bonus, GameFly subscribers will also be able to access "Unlimited PC Play," which allows members to download select PC games at no additional cost.

Shacknews on the GameFly app

Unlimited PC Play currently offers over 200 games, including Assassin's Creed, Saints Row 2, Prince of Persia, and Hector: Badge of Carnage. While the GameFly client is available on both PC and Mac, games are currently only available in the PC format. "We are thrilled to finally be able to open up the beta so anyone interested in video games can start using the client, and we are hard at work expanding our catalog of PC titles for our users to play for free in the Unlimited PC Play section," Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of business development and content, said in a press release. Head on over to GameFly and download the app. And then read this story again, directly from the client!

      It uses Air, so it also runs on Mac OS. There are no games in the Mac library, yet.

      I like the idea of unlimited play, but the majority of the library for that is filled with older games and really poor titles. There are gems in there, like Assassins Creed and Prince of Persia plus quite a few episodes of Sam & Max and other Telltale Games stuff.

      Interesting.

      Does GameFly price discriminate members based on region? ...
