GameStop expands digital content access to international customers

GRAPEVINE, Texas — GameStop customers outside of the United States will soon have access to the PlayStation Network's downloadable content from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. This digital option will be available at more than 1,600 store locations in Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Customers in those countries will have the ability to purchase DLC with any form of payment including trade credits, gift cards and cash. Last year, GameStop returned more than $1.2 billion in trade credits for pre-owned games, and those customers are eligible to apply their trade credits toward any game purchase, including downloadable content.

“The ability to use cash and trade credits as currency is a powerful tool and Sony Computer Entertainment Group recognizes that it provides a new channel for gamers to access and purchase exclusive digital content,” said Mike Mauler, GameStop's EVP international. “We are thrilled to be bringing this initiative to our international customers.”
