It will also be interesting to see if Amazon and MS can expand their partnership to include Xbox Live Community Games as this would help sales massively.
So for all those of you in the U.S. who have been asking to gift games, now you have a way.
This is how Amazon describe the service:
“Choose from arcade games, points, or subscriptions as a great gift for any gamer. Give a subscription so they can play online against other gamers, arcade games (from retro classics to the newest hits), or points so they can download the latest DLC. Points can even be used to download the hottest movies and tv shows. Give the gift of LIVE and give the gift of entertainment.”
