We heard about Google's Play store gift cards a few days ago, but at the time, nothing was official. Now, the time has come where the Mountain View-based company has come clean, and officially announced the availability of the Google Play gift cards.

They'll be made available in three denominations, $10, $25, and $50 and should arrive at Target, RadioShack and GameStop retail stores across the United States in the coming weeks. As for availability outside of the US, Google have not hinted at this just yet.

But, they have said that they'll be made available through Walmart.com later on this month, but not at the brick and mortar Walmart stores for now. The gift cards can be used to purchase anything from the Google Play store, which includes music, books, movies, apps and more.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
