Steam Wallet Displays Pop up at GameStop (Updated: Totally True)
According to the same post over on Joystiq, GameStop is indeed selling Steam gift vouchers — starting today. As the pictures indicate, they’ll be available in $20 and $50 variations.
A post on Joystiq indicates that the rumors from last week are coming to fruition, in that a picture from an “anonymous tipster” reveals a GameStop store display featuring The Steam Wallet — $20 and $50 gift cards for Valve’s PC gaming platform, Steam.
Until official confirmations have been made, we’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s real or not. Given it is true, feel free to get excited any time about having to make a trip to the store to make an online, 100% digital purchase.
As pointed out when the rumors first came into play (and assuming they’re true), selling competitor gift vouchers would be an odd and interesting, but somewhat intelligent move for GameStop – a company that tried to set up its own digital gaming service in years past, but found little success.
If you can’t beat em’, at least make a little overhead cash selling their stuff.
Well, I’m off to my local GameStop to see if a similar Steam-related setup is on display. You know, for science.
Journalism something or other.
