Crystal Dynamic’s Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will have the distinction of being the first game widely available at GameStop’s Downloadable Content Centers. Hoping to be a one-stop DLC shop, costumers can download and purchase all manners of downloadable content in any participating location.
“The beauty of our DLC Centers is in the convenience and options it offers our customers when they are looking to purchase add-on packs or full-length DLC content of top-selling titles for console games or popular Xbox Live games,” said GameStop president Tony Bartel. “Customers pay only for the specific content they want, such as $14.99 for the Lara Croft game, rather than bulking points that they don’t immediately need and with subsequently have to manage. Also, customers can pay for DLC with any form of payment we accept, including cash, credit or even trade credits.”
Speaking on how the transactions work, a GameStop representative is quoted as saying, “Orders are placed at the register, and customers are given a code printed on their receipt along with instructions on how to download the digital content to their consoles.”
