Retail Games on Steam?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Quick question!

Can I buy a game from a retailer and then add it to steam? Not just add it, but for examplre Black ops is sold £59 on Steam and £22 on Amazon!

I know that I can add like a link on Steam but my question is whether it can become a part of Steam and receive normal updates and play on steam servers!

^This. You can add any game on that list, and it'll activate as if you had actually bought it through the steam store. For any other games, you can add them as a non-steam game in your library and use the in-game community overlay; however they will not automatically update.
