It’s a monthly, “all-you-can-play” gaming service, launching with 300 games – you need to keep your subscription to keep playing the games. But.. which games? Here’s where it gets interesting.

For starters, GameSpot confirms that “Sega will provide… titles from the Genesis and Saturn consoles… Pac-Man will lead the more retro part of the service’s catalog.” There are also more contemporary games such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. In addition, a QT3 attendee at last night’s launch event in S.F. reported on example GameTap games showing on demo video, including Gunstar Heroes, Vectorman, Police Quest, Toy Commander, Tomb Raider, Asteroids, and more. More info will likely debut at E3, but this is definitely something to keep an eye on.
