Sure, Amazon makes most of it’s hard earned dough by selling and shipping physical items, but they don’t need a crystal ball to know that digital content is the future and they are positioning themselves accordingly. The company is expanding its downloadable video game catalog to include Xbox Live Arcade games today.
The process will no doubt be streamlined in the days to come, but for the moment you buy a code from Amazon that you have to enter into your Xbox. Amazon charges you real money instead of Xbox Live points. The service is live now if you want to take a gander. Does that make the digital content taxable? So many questions. Might as well just get shopping.
