Direct2Drive sold.

Apparently the 7 year old rival to Steam Direct2Drive has been sold by IGN to GameFly, who primarily specialize in game rentals by post in the US.

According to Rock Paper Shotgun this may have something to do with a resent partnership with Gamestop and Direct to Drive may have been ‘getting in the way’, or may be just D2D wasn’t competitive enough despite the current flurry of offers this past couple of weeks over Facebook

How this affects the site outside the US is unknown, nor do the users know if their purchases are truly ‘Download Today. Own Forever’
