Amazon’s gaming section has been going through some serious expansion lately. The online retailer recently added game trade-ins to their services, and now? Customers can buy Xbox Live Arcade titles directly through Amazon. No points, no problems; buy and get a code that allows the download to your Xbox Live account.
The service isn’t just limited to games, either; you can buy points or subscriptions to the Microsoft service, too, and since you’re dealing with codes, if you want to give the items as gifts, just hand over the number.
The service, which just launched, is nice if only for one reason: I’d much rather see a price tag in dollars than in Microsoft points!
