Google Play giftcards headed to GameStop, Target first Earlier this week, leaked photos of Google Play Store giftcards started making their rounds.
Today, Google has confirmed the existence of the cards, and given some more info into their release.

The company will offer $10, $25 and $50 cards, each of which can be used to purchase apps, games, movies, music and TV shows, but not hardware like the Nexus 7.

Target, GameStop and RadioShack will be the first few retailers to get stock of the cards. Wal-Mart will follow by the end of the month.

Google is expecting to sell anywhere between 3 and 5 million Nexus 7 tablets before the end of the year.

Amazon Kindle Gift card can be used and added to Amazon card and you don't even have to use it for Kindle, same with Amazon Play.

WHat I don't get is why Google would insist on people not using these gift cards to purchase Google hardware (namely, the Nexus 7).
