Why pay for expensive software?

Computing giant Dell is launching an online software store, where consumers can download music, popular software titles and PC games.

‘Consumers are very accustomed to downloading music and movies online but many are still buying shrink-wrapped software,’ said David Clifton, director of consumer marketing, Dell Europe. ‘We’re now offering customers the choice to purchase the music and software they want, and download it direct to their PC from one convenient location.’

The service, available now, will include a number of songs and include software from Sega, Deep Silver, Atari, NCsoft, Codemasters, Kaspersky, AVIRA, Nero and Lavasoft.

PC games include the latest titles such as Fear 2, Football Manager 2009, Lord of the Rings: Conquest, and Shellshock 2. Music available for download includes leading artists from major labels, without DRM restrictions.
