    GAME have made a serious push for digital since their struggles… It takes as much of their shop floor as one of their ‘top 20′ sections. It’s a sizeable investment of space for a bricks & mortar retailer.

    Good that Steam credit is available from there – I often have money in my pocket I can’t put in the bank else it would be swallowed up by my overdraft.

    Nice that they’re doing it but to call it convenient is pretty hilarious. Nothing beats doing this all online but there we go. It’s good for the gift-givers, especially at this time of the year. Hell, people who couldn’t be bothered to look for decent presents for loved ones have been buying M&S vouchers for years! :-P

      This is the real value of course.

      That said, whats the odds of them turning around & saying that store credit cannot be exchanged for online store credit?? :D

      Yep, this is what I’ll use it for. I’ve been trading stuff in for PSN credit already, so same thing.

    That 33% discount is mighty tempting to help build up credit for the inevitable Steam Christmas sale spendathon.
