LOS ANGELES, CA, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 – GameFly, Inc., the leading video game service in the U.S., announced today that its PC client is officially launched and out of beta...just in time for the holiday games rush. The one-stop shop for gamers features over 1500 PC games to buy and play, with a growing catalog of Mac games now available for download as well. The desktop client is a convenient resource for gamers with up-to-the-minute-news and asset feeds, a vast library of game information, videos and screenshots, and an active social community to discover what’s hot or not.

“We used the positive and constructive feedback from our community during the beta to help make the best product possible,” said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content.  “To celebrate the launch of the client, we’re excited to partner with 2K Games to give away their highly acclaimed PC game Bioshock for free.”
