GAME now selling digital copies of Wii U and 3DS games

High street retailer GAME has secured the exclusive rights to sell digital copies of Wii U and 3DS games in its stores.

From today - with the launch of excellent 3DS strategy title Fire Emblem: Awakening - you'll be able to buy a downloadable copy of a 3DS and Wii U game, with a code for its redemption printed off via till receipt. (3DS, GAME, Industry, Wii U)

This makes a lot of sense
Won't take up space if certain titles don't sell, and makes consumers aware of the digital distribution channel.

I hope they do the same for the PS4. I think ive seen them sell codes for Vita games in some places but i really dont know where.

In store they sell digital codes for some games.

I dont know if it will save retail. If people are capable of redeeming such codes.. They will surely just buy direct. There might be the odd person who is still scared of buying online but not many nowadays.

This is not Sony news, so could musing about Sony and their hardware please be directed at their own articles?

This is about Wii U and 3DS games.

I do not read Nintendo news to hear about the PS4 and Vita. Can we have a single positive article about Nintendo that doesn't have someone trying to bolster Sony hardware/software in it?

This is the sort of thing game need to do. If game can offer digital games in shops than they cost on the console it could work out well for them.

Get some PS MOBILE codes for the Vita and help out the Indie scene! That would be great!

What i don't get is Game are selling them cheaper therefore under cutting Nintendo with their own e-shop and making them lose between £5/7...not that i'm complaining as a consumer but....
