It is a good price ^.^


now just need them to add a dolphin and a few unicorns on the frontline, so it drops even further 😏
Despite it being a good price, you should really consider not pre-ordering games. It encourages bad practices in the industry such as pre-order only unlocks and can lead to a lot of disappointment if the game isn't as good as expected on day 1.

Becoming a broken record but word needs to be spread so I'll say it in every game pre-order thread I see:
SAY NO TO PRE-ORDERING!

Don't do it, guys! You have no idea if the game is any good. At least wait until somebody reviews it before buying.

Pre-ordering encourages an industry where it's more important to spend money hyping and marketing a game than it is to spend money making the games actually good.

So many customers have been stung by buying games that look amazing in pre-release media, but are actually generic or even downright bad when the finally come out.

Do the right thing, and buy on release day!

Love bf1 not sure how much I'm gunna like this?Think I'll wait and see what the general game playing public think.
Good price but sadly this is not what imagined DICE's WW II game to be so I am gonna pass and spend more time with BF 1. Good price though.

Sites and deals like this see shady to me especially at this price. They're offering a 30-40% or so discount on a product yet to be released. Like even if Origin gives them keys to sell at 30% cheaper than Origins own pries then this discount right away takes away that profit margin. I just assume keys are bought with stolen credit cards and paypal fraud or whatever and then sold on for very cheap as they didn't cost anything in the first place since they're stolen. I get that most of these key deals are legit but such a huge discount on a popular game BEFORE it comes out?... Just don't get how it's possible. The keys had to have come from a legit source(origin/EA i guess) originally otherwise they wouldn't work, but how could they sell the keys for so cheap that offering this discount is possible let alone being worth while. aybe they're bought oerseas where the gae is heaper then sold on here?

I have a theory. Cd keys sells keys cheaper and closer it gets to release date they increase the prices. My theory is that they dont have any keys and just collect pre orders. Once they have 10/20k pre orders they reach out to the supplier and offer to buy 20k keys at 50% discount. They have established network of contacts and buy keys at wholesale from legit contacts direct from publisher or through agent. Once they secure the keys they sale rest of the stock at higher prices and after dust settles they sell cheaper. Cd keys are legit. The only problem I find with BF V is that its not mine WW II.

Lol your both funny, you think origin or steam are making small profit margins? They are taking a lion's share of profits on sales, the developers get pennies in comparison, but it is just the same with factories who supply supermarkets, they make and sell items cheap and the retailer makes the lion's share of profits.
So for Origin to offer resellers comission per sale is not a big deal to them, as even at cheap pre order processing, origin will be making a lot of profit overall.

More or less this though I'll add a bit more for people that are interested.

Time is probably a big factor to pre-order price since prices do go up the closer they get to release with the best time normally being 4-6 weeks before release, but demand is also probably a massive factor with the more copies being sold slowly increasing the price.

I don't know if they would collect pre-orders and then offer them around to their wholesalers, i would of thought that they would agree prices with wholesalers for buying keys/DVD's in bulk (say 5k, 10k etc bulk orders), but it could be done either way i guess.

Their wholesalers will be from all over the world and they will buy the cheapest keys they can, which can come from South America, Asia or anywhere aslong as they aren't region locked (normally referred to as RoW (Rest of the World) keys). If the key didn't come from your region then people will call these grey market (rather then black market) keys, since the key sometimes wasn't intended to be used in your region but they aren't black market keys since they are legal and legit.

Physical DVD's. Several years ago this was the main way these companies bought keys (and probably still is), buying boxes and boxes of DVD's which they would then scan the Serial Keys (If you've been buying from cdkeys.com for a long time then you probably remember how the keys would be wonky or pixelated when shown of their website.) Another keys company (CJS-CDKEYS) used to post images on their FB page of them receiving boxes of games and talked about "uploading" them: facebook.com/CJS…ter

Physical DVD's also explains why sometimes customers won't get their keys for newly released games until several hours after the game has been unlocked on Steam or other platforms.

I get my numbers from working in a factory that supplied Tesco, we used to sell out cheesecakes for 50p to Tesco, they had them in store for over £2.

So why should the factory that makes them get so much less than the store that sells them? Simple, they have no demand for their product (or at least not enough if they sold independent), so rely on the big seller to put in big orders to make a profit off of.

Same would apply to video games as there are little to no independent producers around who let small companies sell on their market without taking profit away from the small companies.
The big layers like steam, origin, gog etc all can take a big cut.

To prove my point just look at the prices of games on humble bundle and similar sites, they sell for anywhere upto 80% less than full retail, yet the producers can still turn a profit as well as humble bundle.
Same goes for the new games sold in third world, they have no demand for games like the west so sell for a fraction of our prices to entice people to buy at all.
Given most of games are now digital, it's reduces the overheads too.

Get over it, games are a commercial enterprise these days - pre-ordering is part of the deal. Shame there is no not like or unlike option on this site.

Good price I paid 35 a few weeks ago

Na, next Battlefield we will see a female holding two huge weapons similar to the box art of the classic Duke Nukem, standing over the big pile of fallen male soldier with the way the SJW BS and "female empowerment" is going lol. Already happened in Star Wars, and with the way Battlefield V is going, the Battlefield franchise will be next.
This keeps gradually dropping in price, was £35 then £33 now it's £32

The cost of making a cake in your factory wont be bigger than 2-5 pence per cake due to the economies of scale. Besides buy8ng keys and reselling them is different.

It can go to zero for all I care. It is not my WW II. Have fun guys on battlefield. Remeber to customize your character and apply make up before each match just like a badass lady on the cover.
Guessing CDKeys take the money straight away and there's no choice to cancel the pre-order if you find a price cheaper elsewhere?
You can cancel, I pre ordered Sea Of Thieves through them after which Xbox said it would be on Game Pass and they cancelled the order for me
Fortunately I am too cheap to pre-order anything.
Royal Mode, Destructible Environments, No Premium Pass Or Loot Boxs.

If you love BF1, you should love this.
Personally I have BF1. Went downhill after BFBC2.

BF3 was good, but not that different from BC2.
BF4 & BF1 were just re-skinned cash-cows.

You clearly look through rose tinted glasses then.
Bc2, while fun, was a pathetic outing of bf, no prone for snipers, no large scale vehicle combat, small cramped maps, most of them with very narrow attack paths, which made massive bottle necks (you were lucky to get a squad past the bottle neck in the transport Heli lol), whoever decided to let you destroy a c4 objective with lrvolution of the building it was in, just lead to tanks sniping the target when a team was too rubbish to get in for the plant (even used to plant C4 on the back of building and keep doing till it dropped haha).

Bf3 was epic, still is, but the net code could have been better, but compared to BF4 net code, was way better.
Bf4 is still a better game overall, just would have been much better if the netcode was better than bf3.

My wish is to see a 4k remake of bf3 and 4 into one online only version, with all the documents of both games and vehicles, kit of both games available on all maps. Plus add in the new mechanics of bf1 and v (especially the lay on back and shoot, nade throw back )
