Very soon GameStop shoppers will be able to buy and begin downloading Xbox 360 digital content without leaving the store. The announcement comes on the heels of GameStops’s second quarter financial report which had a 27 percent jump in digital revenue sales. The way this process will work is after purchasing the content GameStop will generate an email which will have a link within to start the download on the console. The email will arrive in less than a minute after the transaction so people that own smart phones can in fact start the download while in the store.
Currently however this system is only available for Xbox 360 content but we aren’t quite sure what this content will be. Will it be select XBLA games and DLC or all XBLA games and DLC? Either way this is still exciting news and the next step towards having a completely digital gaming world. Plus it will get rid of those pesky 25 digit codes.
