Ultimate Game Card?

Ultimate Game Card payment support? I mean it's the only way for some people. And I don't see anything wrong with it.

Steam already has their own cards. It is only currently available in the U.S. but will eventually expand to other countries.

Many other companies also have their own cards, but also take Ultimate Game Cards as well. I don't see why not.

Judging by the list of stores that sell them, one should be able to find a Gamestop nearby and pick up a wallet code. Mostly unnecessary. Mostly.

I support any additional payment option. When someone dont want to use it, just use your favorite payment option but other people could think different.

The reason why companies are so reluctant to do this is because they have to pay a certain fee to the company hosting the prepaid card. In the long run they will be losing more money paying these companies, and the money the player pays goes to the prepaid card and not Steam. So, with the Steam gift cards, that's the only way to buy the games other than in the client. This way, all the money goes to Valve.
