[TinyBuild] G2A sold $450k worth of our game keys that we received no payment for - Page 2

post #11 of 260
This just adds to another reason why I refuse to support Grey Markets CD-Keys sites like G2A/CDKeys etc. It's insane that people are okay with damaging the industry to buy games cheaper.

Considering most people are okay with supporting the used game market (including myself), it doesn't seem that insane to me. Seems perfectly logical in the land of capitalism.

I am willing to bet devs loose alot more from the rather large used games console market than they do from the small amount of people that buy from a shady reseller like g2a(not that I am defending g2a, never used them before).

Capitalism doesn't mean buying goods that were bought with stolen credit card information. Capitalism implies the process has to be a voluntary transaction, the guy who had his CC information stolen wasn't in this voluntarily.

And this is where it defers from buying used games, buying used games doesn't involve stealing someones credit card information.

It's easy to price stuff below market value when it's stolen.

I will only buy keys from G2A for AAA games. Indie dev's I pay full price directly off steam. Ubisoft, EA and the likes can kiss my A**. $79.99 for crap, never going to happen.

You'd be amazed at what people will accept for "free" or "cheap" products. As long as they aren't constantly reminded what it took to get that product cheaper. Come to think about it nearly everyone does this... I do this and I'd bet good money you do as well. Lol wow, I was getting ready to climb on to that high horse there and just knocked myself off. That's a first..

But some stuff I wouldn't do. Like buy games from G2A.

What a garbage website to buy a game from. When the web host offers to sell you an optional insurance just in case you get scammed, I closed their site. That should have raised enough red flags and alarms to warn you this website is crap.

You can already go into websites like the official EA Origin store from a VPN to get foreign prices for half off games (origin has no region locks), so there is no point to this.

Just remember that smartphone in your pocket was made by slaves and the land your standing on was stolen from it's indigenous inhabitants. It's easier not to think about it.
