Following the news this morning that Amazon-owned rental and streaming company LoveFilm are about to cease renting out games, TheSixthAxis has been told that if you’re already on a subscription that allows games to be posted back and forth you shouldn’t see any changes.
A LoveFilm representative told us that although from the 1st of July games rentals aren’t available to new customers signing up, “existing customers with a games package will be able to continue renting games until further notice.”
It’s not clear whether or not LoveFilm will continue to buy in new games to support the subscription, but given the numbers that’s likely enough.
“We will, of course, let you know of any changes to this,” said the rep.
Note that EuroGamer were told existing subscribers will lose the ability to rent games.
