I don't see why they would sell cards with codes to download the game? That would seem redundant when you can just buy MS points or PSN cards to buy the game directly off the service.

Why do they sell cards with codes for DLC then? People must buy them otherwise they wouldn't be on store shelves. If you would like examples, I can provide some.
 
Mankind's true moral test,
is fundamental test
which lies deeply buried from view,
consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy.
And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle,
a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.

1) Young people who don't own credit/debit cards
2) (on Xbox) prevents wasting points
3) Better as a gift
4) Allows people not in an official Live/PSN region to get downloads (points/money cards don't always work as well)
5) Allows children to obtain downloads from their parents with sharply increased effectiveness
6) Because MS/Sony don't want to piss off brick and mortar...yet...

The only DLC cards I ever saw were the ones packed in games as bonuses or store specific preorder bonuses. I never seen any that were for sale.
