Amazon UK Finally Launch Digital Download Service
Many PC gamers out there take advantage of digital versions of games, as they are usually they are cheaper and you do not have to wait for the game to be delivered.
Many websites already provide this kind of service including Amazon in the US. They regularly offer PC games at very competitive prices but with it being the American version of Amazon, many gamers are left out. Sure you can fake your address since it is for a download but it can be a bit of a hassle and they often have some great sales on.
Well that’s about to end as Amazon in the UK have finally adopted the same service. They will offer digital games either via download, Steam, Origin, or uPlay and will hopefully offer the same kind of deals that the US store currently does. The service is still in its beta so there are only a few items currently available, most of them being Ubisoft titles. Amazon are celebrating by offering Far Cry games at a reduced price so if you are interested, you should take a look!
I think it’s about time Amazon UK got with the program as the US site offers some great deals now and again. With a little time I can see this becoming a service that could occasionally rival Steam in pricing. What do you guys think? Have you been waiting for this or do you not bother with digital downloads? Let us know!
