Great price for this call of duty on pc. Still a decent amount of players online. Could be good to tide you over until bo4 as a lot of people were disappointed with WW2.

Their business model primarily involves buying keys in bulk in cheaper regions and then reselling them in more expensive regions. /r/GameDeals has chosen to ban them, and I also choose to not shop with them.


You mean like the way pretty much every other company in the world works??

It’s funny the way media can manipulate people’s opinions of certain things over others.

Care to explain how this is in any way similar to "every other company in the world"?

Tesco, asda, Wilkinsons, Morrisons, sainsburys, aldi, Lidl, argos... Etc etc... All buying in bulk from other companies or farmers etc and reselling in stores for a profit. Its common sense about marketing and thinking just 1 company does it is just daft.

So what? It isn't illegal. The publishers' business model involves charging you a higher price for no other reason than the region you live in. It's not like they're standing on the moral high ground!

Because a core concept of business is 'buy low, sell high' and many companies take advantage of weaker economies in other countries to buy from/have things made in countries where it is cheaper to do so and then sell them in countries with stronger economies where they can charge higher prices. So in that respect buying game keys in bulk from, for example, a Russian store, where they're much cheaper and then advertising them in countries like the UK, where you can charger higher prices, is no different to getting clothing or electronics made somewhere like China for sale at premium price in the western world. If you have some sort of moral objection to this kind of business practice there are a lot more products and sites you should be boycotting.

I don't see why we need to have this conversation every time a deal like this is posted. People say 'gray market' like it's illegal (because it sounds like black market, which is the illegal version) or immoral - it's not. The only real argument to be made is that buying through a site like CDKeys means the developer will get less money from you, but a) whatever price they've set, even in the cheaper countries, means they will be getting some money, and it must be an amount they're okay with, and b) if you're shopping around for game deals you're unlikely to be paying full price for the game anyway, so if this is the only way you're going to buy it then at least the developer gets some money from you instead of nothing (glass half full perspective).

"Care to explain how this is in any way similar to "every other company in the world"?" Proceeds to ignore explanation because it's too many words.

12 lines isn't an essay (unless you're taking one of those dodgy online courses). Try reading it - it won't give you an aneurysm and you might learn something that will stop you making naive comments in the future.

Well said reddragon he is just a troll he does it in every thread.

He seems hell bent on spelling and grammar then complains when someone takes the time and effort to provide a comprehensive reply like you did - just ignore him and he will fade into obscurity!

Probably sitting in his one bed flat thrashing away with one hand on the mouse and the other under the table at his sad attempts to get a rise out of folks - my his life must be pretty sad and boring - You have to feel sorry for his type , so many of them on social media!
