Today, GameStop confirmed previously reported rumors that the retail chain will begin selling $20 and $50 denominations of Steam Wallet codes. GameStop will not only be taking your cash but will offer costumers the option of using either GameStop gift cards or trade-in credits towards the purchase of Steam Wallet cards.
The Steam Wallet codes can be used to purchase any of the 1,800 or so titles available on Steam’s online marketplace with plenty of options for both PC and Mac gamers. Sure, there may be nothing too ground breaking here but if you’d rather not have your credit card info out in the cloud (or if you’re too young to have a credit card) you have a new option.
