Only buy from them if you like ripping off the company, it'll be better just to pirate the game...

I bought 2 keys from cd-keys before, bethesda games
One of them was a picture of a german retail box with the key on it

So, no not exactly legit. But they're real games from a country that probably isn't yours

Edit: Extra point, i bought one of them over a year ago, and it's still in my account

Any hard proof that cdkeys.com in particular has games from stolen credit cards?


Last I heard, most of those Grey Market sites are all owned and ran by the same people, and they all operate exactly the same, but here's a couple of CDkeys in particular

Plus tons of grey market in general being revoked for being stolen keys

Indie devs would literally rather you STEAL their game than buy it grey market

Cdkeys isn't legit, but they have cheap games so go for it.

Yes providing multiple links to the same incident is totally tons of keys.

And yet other indie devs actually partner with G2A in their programs. That allows the dev to receive money off the sale of a key, then get money off the sale of the key on G2A. Literally getting paid twice off one cdkey.

The problem isn't nearly as widespread as you think. But if we're to go off your lead, I suppose ebay and amazon are crippling the free marketplace with their "tons of stolen goods".

Yeah erm...when the mafia smash stuff in your restaurant and ask you to pay them to *not* smash stuff in your restaurant, that doesn't make them legitimate businessmen.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

Welp, everyone must be tired of arguing about Denuvo. Because now we're gonna start arguing about grey market sites again.
