EB launches digital distribution

While all the focus has been on today’s PS3 pre-orders…hey look over there! What’s that? It looks like EB Games quietly rolled out their own Xbox Live Marketplace PC game download service.  As their site says ‘No rentals, no subscriptions – you own the game!’

Edit: Reader ‘Xeno’ points out that the Zune section on EB games is also open for business.

Edit: Thanks to all that pointed out that Xbox Live was not the first to deliver games online (Compuserve anyone?) my point is that Xbox Live is a pretty simple way to download many games.
