The title says it all. I tried the uk version and these titles are not available there. This is gamestop.com only so far.

Odd that they don't sell Nintendo credit cards (or whatever the pre-payed, code based things are called). But this all comes down to what is for offer, since most people want to see the whole scale of games for sale. At least I do :P

They need to remove the word DLC from the item names because it's incorrect.
DLC, downloadable content might be a valid description for downloadable titles, but it is almost always used to describe add-on content for games, not the entire title.

Just say "Pushmo Download Voucher"

Does anyone know if this will contribute towards getting Club Nintendo coins? If not, I'd rather just buy it straight from the eshop instead.

but if you get a voucher or points you can get it for free/cheap..-er.

Maybe, but for things that only cost $2.00 - $9.00 on average isn't that bad. I'd rather earn coins from buying what is already essentially cheap to use on Nintendo rewards and whatnot.

Technically it is game content, and you download it.

It's a pretty good idea if you don't wanna spend $20 on an e-shop card and you also don't want to use a credit card to purchase points. Hope it expands to all e-shop titles, there is also potential for sales, promos, etc.

Duh, I even said it was a technically valid description.
But EVERYONE associates DLC with add-on content, most people at a glance would think Gamestop were selling DLC for the titles available on the eShop.

I noticed at EBgames today when I went, they had physical copies of DLC up for various games on different consoles...it was odd.
I'd never really seen DLC sold like that outside of very rare circumstances like RDR.

I guess it's nice for people without an internet connection to connect to...but frankly I don't think that's common enough to actually warrant selling physical copies of DLC and downloadable games, especially for a handheld.

It works well if you're gifting somebody DLC, as cheap as that may seem.

S'pose so. Never thought of that.

I guess it also helps advertise the content more as well.
