Although at least one person resisted its siren call, that didn’t stop millions of war-crazy gamers from buying Modern Warfare 2’s Stimulus Package map since its release last week.

The retailer announced at a conference in New York yesterday that it will launch some sort of in-store DLC service next year. That is, let’s say you buy Game, then immediately buy related DLC from inside the store via a special interface. (GameStop worked with both Sony… Read More
