    Good news. I know it is still early, but if they start running deals like GMG, they would certainly have my money

    More choice for gamers. Good to see shops getting in on digital.

    I wont be bothering to be honest. Having an Origin and a Steam accounts is more than enough for me.

    So the place with the worst website wants to start a digital store...

    It is good to see local brick-and-mortar stores embracing both online shopping and digital downloads. But I'm wondering "Where's the hook?", what will draw me to BT Games rather than dealing with Steam and Origin directly? I checked a few games between BT and Steam and there doesn't seem to be a price advantage: Steam $39.99 -> BT R399, Steam $19.99 -> BT R199.
    So in general it is (Steam price * 10) = BT price.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    Well since I don't have a CC this should open up the DLC world to me, how's that for a hook.

    Also no cross-border consumer rights conflicts and all you can't be prosecuted for Tax evasion. Just a reminder downloading games off steam which you paid for is defined as an importation and you have the obligation to pay over the necessary VAT to sars.

    If we can get Steam codes for the same price as the in-store games (meaning that it isn't a direct conversion from $ to R), then I'd go for it... especially for newer games. There is no way I'm paying R500 - R600 for a new PC game on Steam so if I can get Saints Row 4 for R350 for instance, then it sounds like a deal.

    Get a cheque card. I have a credit card which I keep for emergencies (which hasn't happened in over a year), but for all my online purchases (local and international), I use my FNB cheque card.

    No guts, no glory, no brain, same story.

    Best would be to just wait and see .... their first fail should not take long after this launches.
