Steam Cards available at Gamestop

Steam Wallet store displays arrive at GameStop [update: It's official]

It looks like Steam vouchers are definitely headed to GameStop. Images sent to Joystiq by an anonymous tipster reveal an in-store display for Steam Wallet voucher cards in both $20 and $50 amounts. This bolsters the image that made the rounds last week, providing further evidence that the cards will indeed be going on sale at GameStops very soon.

The upshot of all this, of course, is that GameStop will be selling gift cards for one of its major competitors, which is especially intriguing as the company has been working to build its own digital distribution platform for several years. We've contacted GameStop and will provide updates as this story develops.

Update: GameStop has officially announced that it is indeed selling Steam Wallet cards as of ... today. They're available in $20 or $50 denominations. Full press release after the break.

Great for those who are hesitant on giving Credit/Debit Card info, though I'm surprised it took them this long

Thoughts?

I had a massive discussion about this with some people. I basically think, it's making Valve lose money when compared to the direct online purchases, but it's going to get them more revenue overall anyway.
