Netflix has abandoned its plans to offer game rentals alongside its other offerings, thus ending the Qwikster experiment it started in September last year. After an outpiring of pulic outcry over the firm’s DVD service being switched over to Quikster, the firm culled its DVD plans but was still contemplating using the service for game rentals. The news was confirmed to investors earlier this week by Netflix CEO and co-founder Reed Hastings. Thanks, G4.
