Pre-Purchasing from Gamestop

#1PanicLime137Posted 8/11/2012 10:25:55 PM
Currently, Gamestop has a pre-purchase available for CS:GO for the same price as in the Steam store. I have some store credit that would be easily spent on that.

My question is; Will I still get Beta access come the 14th if I pre-purchase from Gamestop rather than Steam?

No idea, but why not just use the credit to buy a steam card? Then you'll be taking no chance to not get into the beta.

Well this is from Gamestop's PC downloads store. From what I gather, it gives me a code that activates on Steam due to its saying that the Steam App is required to install and play.

I'd go through Steam. Buy a card.

Beta access is for preorders from the Steam store only.

I wouldn't even support Gamestop if I were you. But that's my opinion.
