Now if they could just buy back and resell these code, I might once again be visiting gaming, retail stores. Have not visited one in over a year.

First EA acess and now this, it appears to me MSFT did't ditch all plans and stuff about DRM...will they introduce it later when gamers are "ready"? Where MSFT itself will decide that of course as usual...wait and see.

This means retailers ser the price...could lead to more competitive prices but also the oposite...moms,dads, beloved ones won't care paying higher prices as they don't have a clue about real pricing..I guess best price would still be on XBL I guess...

If these codes are the same price as their physical counterparts then this is really good news!

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not lol

I'm not. If the prices were the same i would definitely purchase all my games that way. At the moment, the prices on the xbox games store is around £15-£20 more expensive than in the shops.

I fail to see the purpose this serves..

Sure... It would allow people without credit cards to buy digital games..

But we've always had point/money cards.. I really don't get it.. Lol

This is good all retailers have price drops and sells so games at best buy might be 50 games at Walmart might be 30 this is good let them compete with the over price market place of xbox and ps store

Great idea, plus when a digital title has some shelf life, it gets a lovely sticker with a discount price. Nice.

Never thought about that..

These codes wouldn't be dependant on the games store price.. They could be discounted seperatly from what Xbox is doing

Pretty cool
