Wal-Mart launches online 'GameCenter' Wal-Mart has created a new online GameCenter this week, a site that will give "first-look" exclusives, game previews and monetary discounts off new releases.
As a launch promotion, Wal-Mart is giving a $50 off discount for any customer pre-ordering three games, or more.

Says Kelly Thompson, VP of merchandising for Walmart.com: "Walmart Gamecenter combines incredible savings with exclusive gaming content all in a compelling and interactive experience online. Gaming enthusiasts will be drawn in by the exclusive content and developer interviews, while moms will appreciate the special savings only Walmart can offer on the hottest video game titles."

Each month, the GameCenter will update and feature new games, content and special offers.

Additionally, GameCenter customers can trade-in their games and consoles, with the retailer paying all shipping costs.

Wonder what Gamestop thinks of this, and I wonder if they'll still be tacking on that additional $10 price tag for those who want to use online capabilities for those traded-in games that they buy?

seems pretty stupid considering there are so many sites that offer this service already, Only difference is they offer discount for visiting the site.

Yep, Amazon already doing that, Best Buy and Toys R Us... They all want a piece of Gamestop's used game market. With Wal-mart in the game, i think GS will ramp up their promotions :)
