GameStop has the market tied up with used games, now it will try to sew up the DLC market. GameStop will start to sell DLC for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 starting next year, as of yet Nintendo has not jumped on the selling of DLC through the used game giant. I like the idea on one hand but on the other I still don’t see why? Let me explain if I am looking to maybe purchase a friend or relative some DLC for their favorite game, I guess I would by the DLC from GameStop so I could give it to them and they would still have to download it. Really no difference than if I where to buy them a specific denomination card depending on the network or marketplace said card was being purchased for. So I ask why? It’s not like we are getting a disc, we would be purchasing a code to download. I do understand that the piracy is cutting a big gash in the gaming industry, but I really don’t see how DLC would even be brought into the fold of piracy.
I guess we will have to wait and see if this new program will work, I really don’t see a use for it but for some it may be something they are interested in.
