GAME sells Xbox DLC content over the counter
Don't pay online
GAME, the British retailer, is selling downloadable Xbox content over the counter in a six-month trial at 40 stores.
XBLA code is given to customers on a card and content includes Xbox Live arcade titles as well as additional downloadable material for games, MCV reports.
Prices range from £3.40-£10.20 and are priced individually rather than based on the standard Xbox points rating.
Now those without network access or their mum's bank details saved on the console for example, can purchase great downloadable titles such as Super Meat Boy, that has up until now been unavailable to them. ®
I really fancy the Arcade version of Perfect Dark in shiny 1080p, but I don't have a credit card, and I doubt I'd use the points for owt else.
Spending a fiver in a shop and getting a USB drive is an idea that sits much better in my head.
Yes, I know I'm weird....
Very good idea
It's an interesting method, but I reckon it'll work well.
That's a smart move
I remember buying games for my Speccy for £1.99 as a kid.
Poket money games.
So what safeguards are in place to stop someone buying the flash drive with the DLC on, copying it, and letting someone else use it?
Seeing as this is targeted towards those with no internet connection, the 360 will obviously not phone home to authenticate.
or if you only have mobile broadband....
