GAME Strikes A Deal!

GAME Teams-up With Nintendo For European Exclusive On eShop Download Codes! WiiUEURON1_zps23410ead

The U.K video game retailer GAME has announced its exclusive partnership with Nintendo which will allow it to sell software in the form of eShop codes both in-store and online. The agreement will allow Wii U and 3DS owners throughout Europe to purchase digital content for their consoles with GAME's chain of physical stores and its website.

Previously, GAME sold eShop cards for a set value. However, this new system will allow shoppers to purchase special cards for individual games as is the case with select retailers in Japan.

In the UK, GAME is also offering an additional 25% trade-in value on selected games against Nintendo eShop purchases made in store.

The full press release is shown below.

From today, GAME will become the first retailer in Europe to sell Nintendo eShop codes online and in store.
The new offering, which coincides with the launch of Fire Emblem, is exclusive to GAME and will allow customers across Europe to purchase digital games for Wii U and 3DS consoles.

Customers will be issued codes via till receipt (for in-store purchases) or email (when bought online), ensuring they are the first to get their hands on the latest games.

Once activated, codes can be entered into the Nintendo eShop on the console and the game will be downloaded.
The Nintendo partnership with GAME also makes it possible for gamers across Europe to purchase codes through its online store via PayPal or credit/debit card.

For customers in the UK, GAME is also offering an extra 25% trade-in value on selected game trade-ins* against Nintendo eShop purchases in store.

Charlotte Knight, Category Director for GAME says: “We’re really excited about this partnership with Nintendo, as it makes it so much easier for gamers to access Nintendo digital content, not just in the UK but across Europe.

“We're thrilled to be able to offer brand new Nintendo Wii U and 3DS releases as digital download from day one of release, and that starts today with Fire Emblem Awakening on 3DS."

What do you think of Nintendo's partnership with GAME in Europe and these special eshop download cards?
