Would be annoyed if my acc got banned as I would obviously not intentionally purchase potential stolen digital items. The prices were ok but made better with eBay promotional codes


I haven't heard enough about their ebay store to compare the legitimacy of it, it seems relatively new compared to the website with all the controversy over their knowingly selling stolen goods. It is possible they might be more legit on ebay as it's a different site and just selling a bunch of credit at a slightly cheaper price as advertisement, or they could be selling 95% legit keys and 5% stolen to turn a profit in total, i.e. the stolen codes cost them nothing to sell so laundering them all together means they still get 95% positive rating and only 1 in 20 people loose their account while they turn a profit at the expense of a small number of customers, of course ebay should do something in the event that anything happens to just one person should the product be stolen, but I don't know how well ebay would handle that scenario.

Basically I wouldn't ever gamble my account or money on IF something is stolen bought from G2A

It may be cheaper but I payed £10 and was happy with it....
G2a is dodgy , but I think it’s mostly newer more expensive games that can be offloaded quick (PUBG for instance) that are acquired through non legal means . Games like this are more likely someone bought lots of humble bundles a few months back and are selling the key.
I have bought several older Under £10 games on g2a and never had any problems .....
as as for the developer well they have already stated they arnt making a sequel And are focusing on “games as a service now as single player games don’t make any money “ so screw them basicly

good game too , I enjoyed it and the tv show definatly worth the money
johnchapman_1 h, 50 m ago

Yeah why would you need insurance exactly? Sounds well dodgy


G2A is essentially like the eBay of CD Keys. The average joe can go on and list a key for sale but you're only protected by G2A if you buy their protection. It's small in comparison but should be as standard really.
Most developers would probably prefer you pirate their game than buy from G2A. They knowingly enable and profit from fraudulent resellers.
Scooty unfortunately this post will get downvoted to kingdom come. G2A is not popular on this site (with good reason).

Having said that I use it all the time so I will not be downvoting you. Don't be put off, and welcome to the community.
G2A. Stay away.

Their reputation doesn't seem too bad:Trustpilot 8.8/10Additionally, this article from Tech Advisor makes it seem like G2A have stopped issues with stolen cards and fraud. It says:"Update 12 July 2016: G2A has just announced that it has added extra steps to prevent fraud. Sellers will now have to verify their social media details and phone numbers, and be limited to 10 transactions before having to provide extra verification. Its aim is to prevent dodgy sellers from scamming buyers with non-working game codes."Do you know when the deal with the major company was?

It was the Bulletstorm creators. They were doing a special edition only available at G2A, but after so many complaints about their security policy, they asked G2A to protect their customers buying from them. They didn't, the deal was pulled. TotalBiscuit really helped stoke that fire lol

If they are genuine why are they so cheap?I'll explain how G2A works...


Or... it's people selling keys from when it was bundled...
As a consumer you're not breaking the law by buying from g2a. Is it wise to do so is another question. As far as will you get your key or if not moneyback if you give to this site so far anytime using them its worked fine. One time I entered my details and their was an error and never got a code, although my bank account was never charged for the transaction.

As for G2A shield please anyone who wants this key make sure you untick the box. It will or at least used start an automatic monthly charge on your creditcard. And is not a one off payment like it appears to be.

As for the ethics and legality of the organisation. And whether g2a is liable or simply the middle man in unpreventable stealing and selling on of goods. Isn't really something avoiding buying a sims key will do anything about. Large lawsuits will eventually catch up to G2A eventually if they are acting against the law.

I definitely don't use sites when they are like this, recently had interactions with 2 sites I found out to be questionable after purchasing there, it took days/hours getting nowhere with their customer support uploading tons of screenshots, and finally took 1 hour on a phonecall to paypal explaining what happened, at which point they recovered the money for me when the 2 website's customer services were trying to make me jump through fraudulent hoops before I would get to purchase anything.

Was sold a code bought with a stolen credit card by G2A and even with Shield they didn't lift a finger to help.

If you buy the codes sold by G2A themselves you should be good, but on the marketplace there's always a risk.

There's no bait. Grey market sellers are inherently shady.


other stores have been proven to be shady due to stolen and revoked keys, I've recently had customer service issues with 2 other sites which turned out to be acting fraudulently according to paypal.
Haven't seen any evidence of cdkeys being illegitimate, I am fairly sure if they were people would have yelled louder in comments by now.
So many grey market sellers are shady it seems like you are just tarring them with the same brush without reason, cdkeys seems to be on the up and level, possibly scdkey also - I've shopped at scdkey and hasn't gone wrong yet, though I only did it once, havent heard anything bad of them yet but I am quite skeptical of new websites now

I used Kinguin a lot in the past, but noticed nowadays (and maybe for some time), that unless you buy their protection you're on your own if there's a problem with the transaction. That doesn't strictly sound legal to me. If you buy from them, you enter into a contract etc etc.

When it comes to sellers, you can see their feedback, just like eBay, so maybe you're better off paying a bit extra to buy a game from a seller with 10,000 feedback rather than buying from someone who just registered. As for when things go wrong, I've never personally had a problem with anything I bought on there but, from a seller perspective, I've found their customer service to be pretty good (and better than it used to be). They do charge you for something called 'G2A Shield' when you buy something, which is basically insurance for your purchase, so if you pay for that you'll be able to get a refund no problem. You can opt out of it to keep the price down but I'm not sure what recourse you'll have then - but if you pay with Paypal you can always file a claim with them instead.So saying things like CDKeys is better is comparing apples and oranges because CDKeys isn't a marketplace - they're responsible for their own keys, and even they have been known to sell batches of grey keys that have been revoked by the publisher.All of that said, I don't see how this can be posted as a deal on here because, as a marketplace, the prices fluctuate way too much. If there's a copy of The Witcher 2 for 54p it could be the only copy - and maybe it has gone already because right now I can see one seller selling it for 44p, one for 46p and one for 49p. When those are gone the next cheapest is 91p. So by the time you've posted it as a deal it could have expired.


perhaps, but when the site seemingly has no control (nor desire to control) the legitimacy of the keys sold on the site, and offers no formal buyer protection, you can get the picture.

Where do the sellers get the stolen keys? Heard nothing good about g2a but surely at 50% to 90% chance of buying a stolen key is enough grounds to have the whole site took down.
Deedie2 h, 46 m ago

if that's true, why are they allowed on here?


They didn't used to be, but I think people complained about them not being allowed for some reason - perhaps they were ill-informed.

So now the majority of users of HUKD are aware that any money you put into g2a has a 50-90% chance of buying a stolen key which will eventually be reclaimed meaning you no longer have access to the content, which g2a will not care about once they have your money - I have heard more stories about people who have never been refunded or even replied to using g2a than those who have regardless of whatever protection they have on their purchase.
So users of HUKD will vote appropriately on anything that comes from g2a and any "deal" posted which is related to g2a will be voted very cold in the hopes that new HUKD site users or even regulars who are unaware of such a distrustful retailer don't stumble across a scam that looks like a deal and naively purchase a key that will eventually be reclaimed.
Deedie2 m ago

if that's true, why are they allowed on here?

Not a clue, you'd have to ask a mod why they're allowed. A quick google of their name, and especially after the Bulletstorm incident, should give you all the information you need to know about this company and their lax approach to the re-selling of pirated keys.

is this safe? any chance of xbox account getting banned?



No. G2A should be banned, its basically a black market site for games with stolen codes.
Edited by: "SoloKingxRobert" 16th Aug 2017
Don't be surprised if your account is banned for marketplace theft if you redeem this on your account.

No matter how many people say "I've never had a problem", it can and does happen from time to time.

No way I'd risk it.
I have been using G2A for quite some time, albeit for Steam games but can honestly say have never had an issue.
While nobody would be wrong to cast shade upon G2A, the reactions here are way over the top, there's no need to be calling for people to be banned. Do G2A sell shady grey-market cross-region games/codes? Yes. Should you feel dirty each time you buy from them? Yes. Are you shafting developers every time you use them? Yes.

Do most transactions result in non-delivery of goods or other issues? No. The claim that "everyone I know who's used it has had a problem" means you either only know yourself, you and a bunch of mates all tried to buy the same thing from the same dodgy seller and got shafted (FYI this happens on any market where anyone can sell and feedback is not heeded) or you're being a bit liberal with the facts.

Personally, I must have purchased 20-30 titles/codes from G2A over the years and only once had a bad code, which was replaced by the seller within hours, and that was without even paying for that g2A Shield crap.

Youve missed the point. You get 3 lego batman games for under £4. This site is hotukdeals not morals r us.

Used G2A plenty and never required a chargeback. Also this deal is a part of a Paypal deal so i dont think they would be on board if it was as dodgey as you suggest.

Have a nice day.

How do i know you arent giving away stolen keys? You clearly dont care about the industry to be taking away money from them for self gain.On your logic no 3rd party deal should be shared. No more bundlestars, cdkeys, cex, indiegala, greenmangaming, no more 3rd party sellers at all. You are single handedly causing more damage than my purchase of 1 lego bundle from g2a.We should only buy at launch from authorised retailers provided by the publishers for them to fully benefit from a purchase. Anything else cuts profit from the sale and you giving them away cuts 100% of that.

There's more chance of Lord Lucan turning up riding horseback on Shergar than there is of completing a transaction both successfully and safely on that site.
A couple of years ago I gave G2A a go after someone posted a deal on here. It was something like £3 for 3 months XBL. The code didn't work, and I never chased it up, instead I chose to just ignore anything to do with G2A.

After constant G2A controversies, including the recent hacking of Gamer_U's account, I think I've been validated in keeping clear of them.

Utterly ludicrous that such big name games like these are getting pulled. … Utterly ludicrous that such big name games like these are getting pulled. I hate the way steam just seems to remove games on a whim and screw anyone who already bought them. I know you can still download and play them (though who knows if they might even remove the download option in coming years) but it seriously devalues having the game on Steam in the first place as you lose the store page and all the user reviews, which can often be well written and really help me when I'm deciding which game to play next and makes it hard, if not impossible to purchase DLC for said game. I'm sure they could VERY easily cache the relevant store pages for existing customers, but of course they don't as Valve are so wealthy from Steam already they don't seem to care about developing the platform further nor any games either (half life 3 for example)...Good bundle though.



All the more reason for piracy to exist.
