GAME Selling Xbox Live Arcade Games and DLC

Wow. Is it really that hard to go onto Xbox.com or on your Xbox 360 and press “Download”? Well now you can buy Xbox Live Arcade and Downloadable content at GAME. A six-month trial has been set for GAME to sell selected games you can find for Xbox Live Arcade and downloadable content. Currently, only 40 stores have been selected for this program. Customers can walk into GAME and buy a code, much like you would for Microsoft points.The program is mostly aimed at users who cannot use credit/debit cards, and for those who don’t wish to buy a whole bunch of microsoft points for just 1 item. Game Group’s commercial strategy director Tricia Brennan said “We know that lots of customers want to play downloadable games and they look to us, as expert retailers, for advice on the best way to do it. We’ve listened to them and worked with Microsoft to provide the answers. From today it will be much easier to buy downloadable games as they will be able to buy digital games in cash for under a fiver”. The downsides? Well it’s certainly the beginning to digital distribution, which not many people agree with. Here is a list on the games you can buy, from the starting price of £2.04:
