GameStop Starts Selling eShop Download Codes

Lots in store
Want to download Pushmo or Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins but don't want to type your credit card details into the 3DS? GameStop has started selling DLC codes for both games through its website and stores.
GameStop.com lets you purchase a digital redeem code for either game at exactly the same price it'd cost you through the eShop itself. The codes are only available in the United States at present — sorry, Canada — but hopefully if it takes off we'll see the scheme rolled out elsewhere.
This isn't the first time you've been able to buy a digital Nintendo game through the web — the Nintendo Store offers a paltry selection of WiiWare and Virtual Console games — but hopefully it's the start of a bigger push on Nintendo's part to get its downloadable offerings out there.
