Ouya Tests Netflix-Style Game Subscription

Android-based gaming console Ouya is testing a new way to move downloads of its games: A $60 “all-you-can-eat” annual subscription. An email obtained by Gamasutra says that developers will still receive 70 percent of a game’s purchase price when it is downloaded, as if subscribers had bought the game normally. Any in-game purchases like power-ups, which can be completed more than once, are not included in the subscription.
