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
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.

hardware and accessories available at GameStop, please visit
