Digital Downloads


A digital download is a video game, software application, or add-on content that you can buy and download without having to purchase a physical copy. It comes in the form of an activation code that can then be downloaded through the Internet to install on the applicable gaming platform.


  • Choose from a massive selection of video game and software titles that can be downloaded whenever you want
  • Games eligible for pre-loading can be downloaded in advance, so you can start playing them immediately at midnight on the release date
  • Shop, download and play without having to leave your home or wait for package delivery
  • The ability to log in on a friend’s console, access your game download and play
  • Many games offer additional downloadable content (DLC) that is only available through digital download


Add the digital download title to your cart and check out as you normally would. After you’ve completed your purchase we’ll send you an e-mail with further instructions.

  1. Check your inbox for an e-mail with a code to redeem your game or DLC. Allow up to 24 hours to receive your code.
  2. Sign into your network account on your console or create a new account
  3. Go to the network store and enter the code. Start downloading the game or DLC
