Grand Theft Auto downloads to be 'sold' in shops

Buy a card and then download it

The Power of One Infographic

Grand Theft Auto: IV’s upcoming “downloadable content” add-on, The Lost and Damned will also be sold as through stores, sort of.

Online retailer GameStop has created a page offering The Lost and Damned for sale through an Xbox Live Marketplace token card, which contains a unique code to purchase the add-on over Live Marketplace.

A physical disc containing the GTA: IV add-on won’t be included in the pack, but gamers will be required to have an existing Xbox Live account.

Unfortunately, the announcement doesn’t indicate if the add-on will appear for the PlayStation 3.

GTA: The Lost and Damned will be available to buy online from 17 February next year, priced at $20 (£12/€15).
