Uk Folks Can Now Buy Digital Xbox Games at Their Local Convenience Store

Well, in a round about sort of way

UK company PayPoint has announced that from today, you'll be able to use their service to top up your Xbox account using cash.

The company provides cash-to-digital payments to allow folks to pay for services at tens of thousands of stores in the UK - from tiny local stores to the larger supermarkets - usually being used for things such as utilities payments and mobile phone top-ups.

Now though, while you're picking up a loaf and some milk at your local corner shop, you'll be able to grab £5, £10, £15, or £20 worth of Xbox credit while you're at it, or multiples of those amounts. Just ask at the counter at any retailer than offers PayPoint, hand over the money, and they'll give you an eVoucher, which contains a code that you redeem when you're back at your Xbox.

It reminds us of a time when you could pop to the corner shop for your mum's Reader's Digest, get the milk for your dad's coffee, grab a pack of Rolos, rent Batman on VHS, and pick up a £1.99 copy of Penalty Soccer on cassette for the Amstrad CPC all in the same transaciton. Then again, we're old.
