Service details

GameTap launched with over 300 games and has now grown to over 900. New games are added every Thursday.[2]


GameTap also features video programming related to video games, music, technology, and other animated shorts. A lite player is gone because it got merged to the deluxe player. As of version 3.5, the video inside the Gametap Player has been phased out and moved completely to the web.[1]


Like many subscription music services, subscribers have access to the entire library; there is no per-game fee. Games cannot be purchased, and are automatically deactivated when the user unsubscribes from the service. A single registered account provides the option for up to eight screen names, and access to games based on ESRB ratings can be limited on a per-screen name basis. However, although the GameTap software and games can be installed on any number of computers, only two screen names under a single registration can be logged in at a time. Therefore, a subscriber can make up to seven extra "sub-accounts" that friends or family can use on any computer with Gametap installed.[3] Users must have a broadband connection, and cannot play GameTap games while disconnected from the Internet.[4]


Most multiplayer games can be played by two users on the same computer. A limited number of games have been enhanced with an online leaderboard and challenge lobby, adding internet multiplayer to games that previously could only be played face to face. Every Monday Gametap holds a leaderboard tournament with a different game each week.[5]


In the past, to cancel one's account, a customer had to call a GameTap representative or request cancellation through their live chat support service. Some customers (as of April 2006) had reported being pressured to stay subscribed.[6] The ability to cancel one's account online was added to the service in October 2007, although customers are still able to call customer service or use the online chat if they choose.


On May 1, 2007, GameTap announced that the service would change its business model somewhat. There will now be 3 different service levels: Visitor, Green, and Gold. The Visitor and Green levels will be free while the Gold level will require a subscription fee (pricing is the same as before). A Visitor is a non-registered member of GameTap, and has access to 30 to 40 select games through the GameTap website. These games will have banner ads when played. A Green-level member must register with GameTap (though no credit card information is required) and is given access to a few more games, and also has the option of playing them through the "Lite" GameTap player, a simplified "Deluxe" player (the old GameTap player). There will be a short ad video streamed before each game is played with a Green account. The highest tier (gold level) requires a monthly subscription($9.95) or an annual subscription ($59.95). Gold level members will still have ad-free access to all GameTap content in more or less the same way they did before the announcement. is the 121st day of the year (122nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
