Bye-Bye, Gamefly Streaming Service

According to Variety, Gamefly's streaming video game service will shutdown at the end of August, although they will continue their mail game rental service. 

Electronic Arts purchased Gamefly this year, and as EA has it's own new game streaming service called Origins Access Premiere, it seems like a bit of a coincidence that Gamefly's service would be now shut down - although EA says that was not their decision.
Reached for comment Wednesday, an EA spokesperson said “We acquired the team in Israel and the technology they’ve developed, we did not acquire the Gamefly streaming service.  We have not been involved in any decisions around the service.”
