GameStop.com is the Destination for Your PC Gaming Needs

Today, GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME), a family of specialty retail brands that makes customers’ favorite technologies affordable and simple, is re-launching its U.S. PC digital distribution service, making it easier and more convenient than ever for customers to get access to the PC versions of the hottest video game titles around.

Starting today, the purchasing process for PC gamers is even easier. Customers will simply provide an email address to receive a receipt, instructions and code to complete any game download. Gamers can make purchases at any U.S. GameStop store, or at www.gamestop.com using cash, gift cards or trade credits and access titles immediately at launch, or even build up their PC video game library by stocking up on some of the classics.

“GameStop is the most recognized video game retailer in the world and a leader in providing the best shopping experience for its customers," said Alan Walters, director of merchandising at GameStop. "Until now, our digital download process had multiple steps. After receiving customer feedback over the past year, we've made improvements to simplify our digital PC game purchase and download process. Our enhancements simplify the process and offer customers a streamlined experience.”

More than 1,200 downloadable PC game titles are available for purchase at all U.S. GameStop store locations and at www.gamestop.com, representing one of the largest PC game selections at retail.

From May 19 through June 2, GameStop will offer up to 85 percent off PC game downloads on catalog and new titles from top publishers such as Electronic Arts, Activision, SEGA, 2K Games, Rockstar, Ubisoft, WB Games, Square Enix, Deep Silver, Namco, Capcom, Konami, NC Soft and many others, including several favorite Indie developers. GameStop supports Mac downloads for a limited number of titles.

GameStop is also offering a 30 percent trade bonus on all PC digital products including downloads, Steam Wallet cards and EA Origin cards.

GameStop PowerUp Rewards™ Pro members are eligible for an additional 40 percent in-store credit when they trade any games or accessories toward the purchase of PC downloads, Steam Wallet cards or EA Origin cards.

Visitors to our former PC Download site, ImpulseDriven.com, will be redirected to GameStop.com/PCGames. Additionally, the GameStop PC Downloads App will be simplified to a game library manager. Customers who are using the current platform and associated app for purchases made prior to April 24 will still be supported, but it will no longer be a requirement for customers to download the app when making new purchases.

For more information about the physical or digital PC software and hardware and accessories available at GameStop, please visit GameStop.com/PCGames or your local GameStop store.
