GameStop Admits Defeat, Starts Selling Steam Vouchers

A GameStop source has told Kotaku that, given the relative failure of the company's push into online PC sales via its purchase of Impulse, it's now trying something a little more practical. Namely, selling Steam vouchers in its bricks-and-mortar stores.

After all, if you can't beat 'em, skim a little of their money off the top instead.

The vouchers will apparently go on sale on May 15, and are reportedly a "kind of a sensitive issue" between GameStop and Valve owing to the fact it's an awkward way for either party to be making money.

We've contacted Valve to confirm, and will update if we hear back.
