The powers-that-be at GameFly can breathe easy again. Last year, Netflix announced plans to start offering video game rentals alongside its DVD and Blu-ray movies/TV offerings. It was part of the company's ill-conceived plan to break into two, with all of the rent-by-mail business going through the newly established Qwikster.
Well, Qwikster sputtered out rather quickly as Netflix subscribers of the world collectively said "wait, what?" after the change was announced. Now it seems that the game rental plans are done as well. Company CEO Reed Hastings confirmed the news to investors earlier this week, The Verge reports. Blu-rays and DVDs will still be a thing, but you'll have to look elsewhere for game rentals by mail.
