GameStop keeps pushing into the digital distribution market

There will be a massive amount of sales going on this weekend so I'll try to keep my posts to a minimum.  I did feel that this one deserves a little extra attention, though.  GameStop has been offering digital downloads for a while now but rarely have they actually caught my attention.  That changes this weekend.

The Black Friday / Pink Monday sale page is up and they've got some a nice variety of titles from 20-50% off.  A few games that caught my eye are:
  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit - $40
  • Fallout: New Vegas - $30
  • Just Cause 2 - $15
  • Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - $7.50
  • BioShock 2 - $10
I have been meaning to pick up Lara Croft and Just Cause 2 and these prices are almost good enough to make me jump.  What sweetens the deal is the incoming patch that will enable online multiplayer for Lara Croft (thanks, Shacknews).  Have any of you used GameStop's digital download service?  I'm anxious to hear what you think of it compared to it's biggest competitors.
