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,

More than 1,200 downloadable PC game titles are available for purchase

Downloads App will be simplified to a game library manager. Customers
who are using the current platform and associated app for purchases made
