Amazon UK to Launch Game Downloads in October

The retail juggernaut is rumored to be launching a new PC game download store in the UK this October, sources say.

This launch would come about 14 months after the UK Kindle store, as well as long after Amazon’s US based games download store, which launched in early 2009.

The store was supposed to launch in April but it had been delayed, and the cause was likely due to the usual problems with launching any new website. It is currently reported to be in closed beta test, and it’s supposed to launch this autumn.
