Yahoo! Games Unleashes Unlimited Subscription Package For 'Games On Demand'

by Rainier on July 1, 2003 @ 12:18 p.m. PDT

Yahoo! Games, the leading online games destination, today announced the first unlimited subscription packages for their popular Games on Demand program. Now games fans will be able to enjoy as many subscription games as they want, for as long as they want, at any time. Along with the original Three Games Package for $9.95 per month, players can now choose the Unlimited Package, which gives gamers access to all subscription games with no time limit.

The Unlimited Package can be purchased at one month or three months at a time:

  1. One month Unlimited Package -- $14.95 a month gives access to all subscription games with no time limit
  2. Three month Unlimited Package -- $34.95 for three months saves gamers 22 percent and gives access to all subscription games with no time limit

Current subscribers of the 10-game package on Yahoo! Games on Demand will automatically be converted over to the unlimited games package and will be able to access all the games they want for the same price they pay now.

Select, "new release" games will continue to be made available for single title rental only. These selected games will be marked as "3-Day Rental Only" and will roll into subscription packages at a later date.

With the Games on Demand service, users may rent and play more than 80 popular PC games from every gaming genre, streamed directly on broadband-connected PCs. Offerings include "Civilization III," "Rollercoaster Tycoon II," "Empire Earth," and "Tropico."
