GameFly PC client enters public beta, Direct2Drive acquisition put to use

GameFly announced that its PC client has entered public beta, with the highlight of the App being the Unlimited PC Play library for GameFly members.

The Unlimited Play section is a nice bonus for members. While there's a lot of dreck to sift through, there's good stuff like Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed and World of Goo ... oh, wait, that's World of Zoo. Our bad.

"We are thrilled to finally be able to open up the beta so anyone interested in video games can start using the client, and we are hard at work expanding our catalog of PC titles for our users to play for free in the Unlimited PC Play section," said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content.

The client will also allow the company to begin selling PC games at GameFly.com (and through its iOS and Android Apps) with over 1,500 Windows and Mac games for sale. The company didn't buy that Direct2Drive infrastructure for nothin'.

Current Unlimited PC Play publishers include 1C, 2D BOY, Atari, Bohemia Interactive, Capcom, Iceberg Interactive, Interplay, iWin, Kalypso Media, Layernet, Legacy Interactive, Meridian4, MumboJumbo, Paradox Interactive, PlayFirst, Playrix, SelectSoft, SouthPeak Games, Spicy Horse, Square Enix, Strategy First, Telltale Games, THQ, Ubisoft and Viva Media.

Many of these publishers have also brought their games to OnLive.
