[POLYGON] Gray market reseller rolls over, agrees to incremental changes at G2A (update) - Page 4

post #31 of 59
This whole issue still sounds like it's primarily the developer's problem.

1. Third party re-sellers shouldn't exist.
2. Don't let people make bulk key purchases on your website.

They have no right to dictate any terms or take any percentage on a key they legitimately gave to someone (promotions/sales etc...).

...and now people will just sell their stolen keys on another key reselling site.

Publishers/developers can continue to distribute their keys haphazardly and get a kickback. What a great system.

I'm losing faith.

Steam doesn't set sale prices. That's the dev's or publisher's decision.


Oh man. This is glorious. So, basically, G2A is allowing devs 10% of the profits. Is this comparable to bribery? I'd say yes. "Hey guys, if you sue us out of existence, you won't get some of this sweet dosh." I think it'd be an objectively good thing if G2A and sites like it went out of business. Paying customers don't go to sites where credit card fraud is the standard, and people who steal the games just stick to torrents. Like, the fact that they offer "purchase protection" for money as a standard thing on the marketplace is pretty telling. They have so many issues with fraudulent keys that they need this feature, but they still try to make money off it.

Seriously, my CC# was stolen after purchasing through G2A without the stupid shield thing or paypal fee. The only other purchases on that card were from local stores, amazon, and digikey. The card was 3 months old and it never left my pocket/hand.

G2A has some serious security issues. I'm only purchasing in bitcoins form them now.

I always pay via Skrill on G2A

dunno how secure that is, but never had any CC troubles so far


never used the shield thing either, Im pretty sure shield is only to ensure a money back if key is invalid and doesnt help with CC security

Why, there are plenty of ways to get cheap games on PC.

Of course I hate console and love PC so even if I always had to pay MSRP I'd still game on PC.

Steam is a beast, a Google like who want to control everything on the market even prices. G2A shows real market prices and legit devaluation of games which bother Steam. g2a is a needed competition , deal with it Steam, there is no fair market without g2a and key sellers. It's like wallmart who wants to shutdown eBay. Common stop your algorythms fat nerds and face the life, people doesn't like your vomited Google life...

Steam has nothing to do with it. It is the developers/publsihers that do not agree and are getting tired of these sites. You know the people actually creating the product.

The way i am going to see this going is once developers/publishers have enough, region locking will be back in full force. That will instantly kill a lot of those sites cause they rely on buying keys from poor regions and selling them to rich regions.

but the cheapest region is RU/CIS and its already region locked .. same for LATAM

Im in EU and I can only buy EU/Global Steam keys which are still more expensive than the RU/CIS/LATAM keys even on G2A

Editors publishers are paid by steam. Ignorant...u fool paid by steam to put the mess
post #40 of 59
So I don't really get this whole thing, can somebody enlighten me, please? People selling allegedly stolen keys – where do they get these keys from or how do they obtain them to warrant the label 'stolen'? Are they hacked from a database or something? Can anyone please describe the 'fraud' that is committed there?
