Amazon UK Launches Digital Download Games Shop

By Gary Cutlack on at

Amazon has finally brought its combined digital download gaming shop to the UK, selling big-name titles alongside Steam and EA Origin codes, and also letting users browse and download a selection of free games and utilities.

The Digital Games section is currently tagged as being a beta service, although Amazon UK says some 600 PC and Mac titles ought to be ready for download right now. There are also some deals to be had, like Far Cry 2 for £2.49 if you fancy something cheap to give Amazon's download servers a test spin.

There's also a less thrilling Digital Software section now live, where you can idly leaf through such business classics as Norton Internet Security 2013 and the five-star legend that is Adobe CS6 Design Standard for Mac -- a snip at just £1,158. [Amazon]
