flarePlay Wants to be Netflix of Gaming World
flare Play game bundle has a simple proposition: You buy (or get free through a promotion) a game console and controller, and then you pay a $9.99 subscription fee monthly to get unlimited games. The set up takes must minutes and is as easy as connecting the console using HDMI and USB ports (or using a work-around if you don’t have a USB-ready TV). Then sign in and go online via wi-fi, and you can instantly stream video games onto your TV, with no disks required.
The gaming company currently offers more than 100 game titles and has a catalog that grows with new games monthly. You can play as many games as you want for as long as you want, all for the monthly fee, which is actually cheaper than the price of a single traditional video game.
Some of the newly available titles include Lego Batman (5-8years), Lego Harry Potter( 1-4yrs), H.A.W.X.2, Assassins Creed 2, and Rabbids Go Home.
Enrolling is easy. You can sign up online at http://www.playflare.com, and Flare Play will send you a gameBundle that contains everything you need: a microconsole and game controller.
Sign up before December 31, 2013, and pay $30 for 3 months of flarePlay service, and you get a free microconsole (valued at $99).* See the offer here: http://playflare.com/blogger
As a participant in a test group of bloggers, I was able to try out this new service. I got the bundle and found the set up to be easy as promised, but so far I have not been able to connect via wi-fi to try it out. I’m eager to get online, as it seems like an amazing device and offering for avid gamers.
