Courtesy the subscription service, users can look forward to receiving popular and classic games right at their doorstep. In what looks like a first of sorts, the company expands its entertainment content comprising of movies and TV shows to include games. A single subscription service will enable users to make the most of these rentals and that too through convenient home delivery.
