Direct2Drive offering games for limited rental at $5 a pop

Saturday, 22nd January 2011 20:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Direct2Drive has started offering limited digital game rental at five bucks a pop for five hours of gameplay.

Once you lay down your $5, and you like the game, that money will go toward the full purchase price of the game.

So far, the service is only available for three games: Divinity 2, GRID, and Silent Hill: Homecoming.

More should be added in the future, though.

Thanks, Blue.

    5 hours :S That’s barely worth it.

    Interesting idea, but I think if Gaikai works it’ll shit all over a lot of their potential business.

    I see what they are doing like a demo, I like the idea but only 5 hours?? 5 hours should be like $2 or something.

    If they are renting games they should do videos too as well. $5 should be a day rental or something.
