In a press release earlier today, Gamefly announced that it now owns IGN’s Direct2Drive. IGN will, of course, gain some benefits from the transaction, though they will have no say in exactly how Gamefly runs.
What does this mean for those of us who use Gamefly? Direct2Drive is an application, similar to Steam, that allows users to browse and purchase PC and Mac games online. Now anyone who has a subscription to Gamefly will be able to enjoy PC and Mac games, as well as the console games already on offer.
