Direct2Drive offers a download manager for its service.

Direct2Drive (commonly D2D) was an online game store offering PC videogames via direct download. On May 25, 2011, GameFly acquired Direct2Drive from IGN Entertainment, Inc..[2]

Competition with Steam[edit]

It was one of the major competitors to Valve's Steam digital storefront and has been described as "the other major purveyor of digital distribution".[3] A non-scientific survey run by gaming news site Kotaku in 2010 indicated that of around 30,000 respondents, 8% had purchased a game from Direct2Drive.[4] While Steam customers can browse the storefront via the downloadable client or the website, the D2D store was only available on the website. D2D did not offer a full fledged client, however, the service did have a free download manager. Additionally, many of the services features, including downloading, were available from former sister site GameSpy's software Comrade.

Business[edit]

Launched in 2004, IGN has claimed "exponential growth in sales" since that time. It offered over 3,000 titles through relationships with more than 300 game publishers.[5][6] Direct2Drive sponsored a $10,000 award at the Independent Games Festival called the D2D Vision Award, which "celebrates independent developers exemplifying innovation in design coupled with excellence in game-play".[7] In 2009, the site made headlines by refusing to sell Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 due to that game's integration with Valve's Steamworks service. Users buying Modern Warfare 2 from a reseller such as Direct2Drive would be forced to also download and install the Steam client.[8]
