Xbox digital game codes now available at retail

For those who love the convenience of downloading games to their Xbox console but also enjoy shopping in the real world, Microsoft is now offering download codes via brick and mortar retailers.

Currently, this offer is only available in the US and UK and only on select games and DLC items, including the Xbox 360's zombie survival game State of Decay, the Xbox One's adorable platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Forza Motorsport car packs. Though customers taking advantage of this offer are purchasing only a redeemable code, there is no discount for grabbing the digital version instead of a physical copy.

Assuming this initiative is a success, the publisher plans to introduce additional games and DLC to the retail digital marketplace.
