20094344 story GameStop Buys Impulse From Stardock 109 Posted by Soulskill on Monday April 04, 2011 @10:35PM from the that-internet-thing-might-be-here-to-stay dept. Daetrin writes "It was announced Thursday that Stardock has sold Impulse, the digital game store, to GameStop. Stardock founder Brad Wardell gave an interview to Joystiq talking about the sale and the reasons behind it. GameStop also announced their acquisition of SpawnLabs, a game streaming company. It seems that GameStop is looking to challenge Steam, or at least avoid being cut out of the digital distribution business entirely."
