Microsoft's Major Nelson has announced that consumers will now be able to purchase digital games and dlc for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 at retailers via digital download code cards. The plan is to give consumers another option to purchase its digital games.
The first set of cards that will be made available are for stand-alone games like Max: Curse of Brotherhood and State of Decay, as well as expansion and map packs for Forza Motorsport and Halo.
The cards will be made available later this month at retailers in the US and UK. Microsoft plans to expand the digital download code cards in other countries over the coming month. There will also be a wider selection of titles from both Microsoft and other publishers.
