Beta Tests Soon for GameStop's Console-Streaming Service?

According to GamesIndustry.biz (as reported by Joystiq), this beta test would be open to members of GameStop's PowerUp Rewards program. The service is expected to be in place by mid-2012.

The largest dedicated retailer of video games in the U.S. acquired Spawn Labs, which had created a console-steaming system, in March. They also bought Stardock's Impulse digital-distribution PC service in March.
