Amazon drops XBLA code sales

Last year Amazon begun selling codes to download titles from Xbox Live via its website. Less than 18 months later, however, the retailer has pulled out of the service.

“We are no longer selling Xbox Live arcade game codes on Amazon.com,” a statement on the Amazon site reads.

“You can continue to purchase Xbox Live points on Amazon.com and those points can be redeemed through your Xbox 360 console to purchase any of the games that were previously available.”

The retailer, however, is still selling codes to download titles both on the PlayStation Network and Nintendo’s WiiWare service.

The move comes as bricks and mortar retailers such as GameStop look to increase their involvement in the digital console space.
