GameStop has stated that it now has over 1,500 downloadable PC games on sale, according to Gamasutra.
Available online or in any of their stores, the above figure makes GameStop’s range one of the most extensive, and marks a huge improvement in their stocking of PC games; they have had problems stocking PC titles due to limited space, with some of their stores not stocking any at all.
The games are available in store as download codes that can be redeemed at home.
This news marks an achievement of the company’s goal to make PC games more visible to their customers. In August, GameStop’s Vice-President Steve Nix said, “This really gets PC out there again and lets customers know it’s still a great platform to play on, and that people can buy those games from GameStop digitally or physically.”
Furthermore, it marks the latest progression in GameStop’s movement towards digital gaming, following moves to allow customers to order PC titles from their website and to pre-order downloadable PC releases from their stores.
