Amazon.com Bows Xbox Live Store8 Apr, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Amazon has launched its Amazon Xbox Live store in beta form at www.amazon.com/xboxlive.
The store offers customers the ability to buy and gift Xbox Live games, subscription cards and Microsoft Points carts. As previously games only were available directly from Xbox Live or xbox.com, Amazon is the first retailer to give customers digital access to codes for Xbox Live arcade games.
“With the overwhelming success of our existing Xbox Live Marketplace, it is clear that the 17 million active and engaged members of the Xbox Live community enjoy digital access to entertainment content,” said Christina DeRosa, GM of Xbox Live Business. “Now we’re happy to be extending our storefront to Amazon.com, a cutting-edge online retailer who is helping make digital distribution more mainstream.”
