GAME now selling digital copies of Wii U and 3DS games

Currently offers extra trade-in value against digital releases.

High street retailer GAME has secured the exclusive rights to sell digital copies of Wii U and 3DS games in its stores.

From today - with the launch of excellent 3DS strategy title Fire Emblem: Awakening - you'll be able to buy a downloadable copy of a 3DS and Wii U game, with a code for its redemption printed off via till receipt.

Digital copies are also now for sale on GAME's website. Buy one of these and you'll get the code sent to you via email. Many are priced around £5 cheaper than their physical brothers. Some are even cheaper than Nintendo's own eShop pricing.

You can still buy eShop cards with credit for Nintendo's online store in a number of denominations, but this new method avoids filling in any bank details on your machine.

UK customers can currently get an extra 25 per cent trade-in value when used against Nintendo eShop games - and for PSN, Xbox Live and Steam downloads, too. The offer is set to last until 17th May, according to GAME's website.
