As rumored last week, GameStop will indeed sell vouchers that allow customers to add funds to their Steam Wallet, opening a new segment of gamers to the platform's hard-to-ignore sales. These gift cards are available as of today in $20 and $50 denominations at all GameStop locations in the United States.
Speaking to Joystiq, GameStop's manager of PC digital distribution Steve Nix explains that "Really, this doesn't affect anything we're doing with Impulse. We doubled the PC download business with the Impulse technology we acquired. We're happy with that. We're now online over 1600 SKUs, we'll continue to grow that and continue to invest in that."
"We're just offering options for customers," he continued. "This in no way changes our investment or what we're doing with that business."
