MCV is reporting that one of our favorite PC digital distribution sites, Direct2Drive is being sold to Gamefly.  Gamefly rents console games by mail (think video game Netflix) in the US and also recently bought community news site Shacknews.  An interesting development, for sure, although I doubt that this will have much impact on users in the short term.  The deal is said to be in the final stages.  D2D was previously owned by IGN.


I have been involved in both computers and video games since a very young age, cutting my teeth (literally) on an Apple IIe and an Intellivision. I've been writing about both for fun, off and on throughout the years, which eventually led me here -- still playing games and casually writing about them off an on. Follow @dab784
