First step of digital distribution world-domination
Gamestop's brick & mortar stores are going to sell Steam Voucher codes starting on May 15th
It seems that retailer Gamestop is going to start selling Steam's voucher codes of different values.
According to Kotaku:
As you see, this is a big step ahead of digital distribution over the physical games.A GameStop source has told Kotaku that, given the relative failure of the company's push into online PC sales via its purchase of Impulse, it's now trying something a little more practical. Namely, selling Steam vouchers in its bricks-and-mortar stores.
The vouchers will apparently go on sale on May 15, and are reportedly a "kind of a sensitive issue" between GameStop and Valve owing to the fact it's an awkward way for either party to be making money.
