Pluto Games enables greater access to Steam Wallet key cards
Middle East: gamers from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other GCC and Levant countries are now able to top up their Steam Wallet using prepaid Steam Wallet Cards, thanks to a strategic partnership signed by gaming specialist Pluto Games with leading retailers in the GCC. This latest initiative by Pluto Games will enable easier and greater access to the Steam library of more than 2,000 titles to GCC gamers. The partnership offers unrivalled value and ease of obtaining digital content for the GCC's growing gaming community, catered to them through collectable localized Steam Wallet recharge cards. According to the agreement, Steam Wallet Cards will now be available in all outlets of Virgin Megastores across the region, eXtra Stores in Saudi Arabia and Alghanim retail centers in Kuwait. This move will provide customers with an alternative method to credit card payments. Purchasing Steam Wallet Cards to top up Steam Wallets is easier and quicker than ever before! Custom made for this region, the wallet cards will give PC and Mac gamers immediate access to Steam's more than 2,000 action packed and thrilling games. As a popular entertainment platform and game delivery system, Steam is an integral part in the lives of 75 million players around the world. Last month, Pluto Games signed an agreement with Valve, the creators of Steam, to become the distributor of Steam Wallet Cards across 300 retail outlets in the region. The Steam Wallet Keys are codes that allow players on Steam to deposit values into their Steam Wallet and facilitate purchases on the gaming platform. This will remove restrictions that the customers might have faced in the past when it came to support and security. According to industry estimates, the Middle East is responsible for more than US$ 100 million in online gaming revenues, with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait having significant share in the industry.
