GameStop's PowerPass offers used video game rentals

GameStop has detailed its new PowerPass service, which will allow subscribers to rent used video games from GameStop stores for a fee.
PowerPass will cost a subscriber $60 for six months. For the fee, the subscriber can visit their local GameStop and "rent" a different game at any time during the subscription period. There is a one game at a time limit.

At the end of the six month period, the customer can pick a title to keep at no additional cost.

There is one prerequisite however; you need to be a free or paid member of GameStop's Power-Up Rewards program to sign up for PowerPass.

Is such a "used game rental service" worth the typical cost of a single blockbuster title for six months?

That's not bad, typically brand new games get returned used within a few weeks of release anyway. Still don't support them though.
