Nice, and I thought $32 from GMG was good. I'd laugh if Direct2Play comes out and sells it at $20 a few days after release like they did with DmC.


Yeah but D2P sells them gray market keys. Not that it bothers me though. Some games still hold their value for a while even in those areas.


What's gray market keys?

Games in 2nd world countries are sold much cheaper than US/Canada/UK, etc. to discourage pirating. So these guys buy a bunch of those cheap keys in bulk then sell them at a mark-up, which is still usually a hell of a lot cheaper than we'd pay normally.

Games like DmC are region free at D2P so there was no difference when buying it there versus buying it on Steam or GMG.

I see, so there's nothing wrong with it, it's just frowned upon. Has any action ever been taken against anyone using a grey key? Has anyone gotten a banned account or at least have the game being taken off their account?

Steam's banned/revoked keys before, but only over region-locked games. As long as you stay away from ones that require a VPN outside your region to activate, there's nothing to worry about.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I don't wanna use a VPN for games, kinda sketchy.
