Walmart Launches Updated Video Game Online Store

Walmart has just launched Gamecenter (no relation to Shacknews parent company GameFly's mobile application GameCenter), an updated online storefront for featured video games.

Along with offering pre-order deals, sales, and bonuses, Gamecenter promises "great content you won't find anywhere else, it's the place for game trailers, sneak-peeks, interviews and more."

Initial deals include a $20 eGift card (store credit to with a pre-order of Call of Duty: Black Ops, buy 2 get 1 free on select Xbox 360 Platinum Hits and bargain bin games, and a $50 eGift card with a pre-order of three Xbox 360 or PS3 games.

Featured content typically includes a brief "introduction video" and a trailer. Some games like UFC Undisputed 2010 include an "exclusive" interview and gameplay footage.

    What a fucking joke. Ads within ads. "Price rollbacks" of $1.03. Like there aren't enough online stores for console games already.
