Steam is finally entering the realm of offering game cards to help customers buy stuff from their service, and it looks like GameStop is going to be helping them!  GameStop just announced that Steam Wallet would be available at all US locations, in $20 and $50 increments.  GameStop’s GM of Digital Distrubution Steve Nix said:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Valve on this new initiative.  This gives even more options to customers now that they can put money in their Steam Wallet using cash, gift cards or trade credits through our convenient neighborhood locations.”

I’m a little surprised GameStop would be offering the Steam Wallet cards as they HAVE to steal a lot of sales away from the company.  I mean I’d liken it to if Blockbuster was selling Netflix subscription cards back in the day. GameStop has their own Digital Distribution offering, but it seems likely to me that people will come to their store and buy these Steam cards instead of using GameStop’s solution.  I guess we’ll have to how much the addition of these cards as an option for Steam gamers boosts Valve’s profits.
