According to an inside source, GameStop's giving up on Impulse, the retailer's digital downloads service. The company has its eyes set on another route to profitability: selling Steam vouchers.
The vouchers are said to be hitting GameStop stores on May 15, coincidentally when a lot of customers will be bum rushing GameStop to troll for copies of Diablo III.
Between Good Old Games and Steam, and maybe every so often Green Man Gaming, GamersGate, or Amazon, I've never even thought to use Impulse. There's no point, because I've really yet to see Impulse offer any of the great deals that we see available through these digital retailers. If this rumor does prove true, it'll be nice to see GameStop recognize Steam's success.
