From the research I have done it seems CDkeys buy keys in bulk from different countries (where they are cheaper) and then resell them. The developers would still be getting money but probably less than they would from sales of keys directly in first world countries. So it seems to me that is legal but there is a moral issue there that the developer is not getting as much money and there is likely no tax paid where you live.

If you look at the prices of games there it deifnitely backs up that supply method as they are often cheaper but not stupidly cheap like some sites which must be selling keys obtained through credit card fraud/stolen.

How legit is the seller? Could these be revoked?


They're grey market, which is legitimate enough. They basically import keys from other regions where they're cheaper, for any games where the keys aren't region locked. So the developer might have sold a bunch of keys to a Russian online key store for £5 each, then CDKeys approaches that website and says 'We'll give you £10 each for 1,000 keys" and then they sell them for £15 and everyone along the line makes £5 (just as an example - I don't know what their actual margins are). So the keys should have come from the developer originally, they just won't be making as much money from them as they were intended for a cheaper market.

Could they be revoked? Technically yes, but it's unlikely to happen - and if it does, CDKeys customer support should give you a prompt replacement or refund. They don't seem to be in the habit of sourcing stolen keys (I'm sure they've found themselves reliable suppliers by now) but mistakes do happen. A few years ago, Rebellion revoked a bunch of Sniper Elite 3 keys (for some reason) and that affected people who had bought them from various sites, including GreenManGaming - and they're authorised resellers.

Yeah, people seem to get the two business models confused - like I've seen a lot of people recently say that 'G2A sell stolen keys' when, no, G2A themselves sell nothing; they're a marketplace with lots of individual users, and if some of those users decide to scam people, that doesn't make G2A the bad guys (what does is if they're not doing all they can to stop such users), and then on the other hand I've seen people talk about CDKeys as if they're some dodgy G2A seller out to scam them when, again no, they are an online store selling keys that they've bought cheap in bulk somewhere and they're going to scam you because (I assume) they don't want their website to get shut down because they want to keep making money. That's not to say no one will ever have a problem with buying from CDKeys, just that they're much more likely to give you a prompt refund or replacement key.

They are a grey market key reseller. That means the origin of their keys is unknown. They have been banned by the knowledgeable moderators at /r/gamedeals, and I personally choose not to shop with them.

I still wouldn't pay more than £5 for this, after following it's journey since it came out, I can't advise anyone pay more than that

They've made some big improvements since the release, but it depends what you're into I guess. Have you played it? After reading about how good the VR is, I bought the PS4 version for £16. Personally can't wait to fly about and explore in VR.
Jasamo13/07/2019 19:59

Only on PS4 as far as I can tell


Nope, SteamVR as well.

Call me Mr skeptical but i will be waiting to see how VR is implemented into this, will it work or will it be a shoehorned Vr mess, my money will stay firmly into my wallet until i see what is what. lol
Very enjoyable game. Lots of of things to do and plenty of exploration. Had a rocky gestation for sure but it's pretty solid now. Much more accessible than Elite Dangerous which is (probably?) it's nearest composite. Lots of gameplay for £15

Legit I've purchased it from there, next update is free also so a reasonable price imo.
Nice find @OverThereYou - we've popped it on our site's Highlights page.

Thanks for sharing
Well, no 21:9 support , no buy.
Voted cold as this doesn't get the original developer any money. I'd rather steal the game then pay these companies.

They're sketchy. Their practice of selling you the product and then demanding your phone number before they release it to you wouldn't fly under GDPR if they were a European-based company.

It would as it's in their Terms & Conditions which you provide expressed acceptance to upon checkout. In fact, refusing to do so would be a breach of contract on your side.

A website's terms of service does not void the GDPR. Also worth noting that requiring a phone number is a bizarre demand from a games seller, and not something you see from any reputable outlet.

Requiring a phone number is NOT a breach of GDPR by itself, they also state it is not used for marketing purposes. Now, how they handle a request for data or removal is a different matter.

Therefore, providing expressed acceptance to their terms & conditions (where they inform you BEFORE purchase phone verification may be required) creates a legally binding contract of sale between buyer and seller.

I'll also add that MANY services online use phone verification as part of their 2FA security.

Is the same with subscriptions, Sony for instance is completely unaware of the codes they "sell". The one I bought was already in use and there was no recourse, Sony don't approve purchases from CDKeys and because they are based outside of the EU there is no legal route to get a refund.

CDKeys are shady as hell.

How so? If they are legitimate and not a reseller of gifted and dodgy keys, the developers would get a cut from when they were purchased wholesale, unless of course you are saying they are dodgy like G2A or whatever. This is a question not a statement BTW.
I've not played it, but I just got into VR and some of the games have been immense like Skyrim, FO4, but to have a game like this which allows you to mine, explore and fly ships is like a dream come true for us who enjoy VR.

That is a question for you to answer. Dont go about putting this on others. Go google search and you will find ample discussions on this.

Here is one interesting one: reddit.com/r/p…rs/
Look the team deserve all the for the way they lied and launched the game but it's been support and is fun to play and is still having big updates I have to give them credit where it due
Do not support this developer.. so cold.

I've used CDKeys for 6+ years for games & subscriptions with no issue.

Yes they are a grey key seller, but that doesn't make a deal not a deal.

VIP/Pepper Expert posters have direct contact with CDKeys in regards to upcoming deals. Most the active users of the gaming section of this site have been about for years and participated in the large scale discussions of trusted resellers.

Alot of us also use Reddit and are fully aware the r/Gaming & r/GameDeals have a very strict criteria to meet.

Lots of talk here about CDKeys being dodgy. I don't know about that, they may indeed be dodgy.... all I know is that I bought steam keys for Tekken 7 a while back and I recently got Doom, both with no issues whatsoever.

Took the words right out of my mouth.
Been buying from their site for years, never have had an issue.

They sell cheaper not region locked boxed copies from Poland, Russia, etc, sometimes even providing a scan of the cdkeys so you can see where they are from.

This asinine witchhunting should stop, they are selling legit keys from other regions, devs/publishers already got paid. So I don't give a damn.

Yes, as "some of us" may have previously moderated various forums and subreddits many moons ago.

There may be grey key sellers and various other resellers on here and on the Highlights list you don't agree with. As a new user, If you don't like this create a misc discussion, invite the mods / members to discuss again, but as previously mentioned, we as a community have been through this many times over many years. The G2A thread was a classic.

You may want to ask the question about keys from ebay being posted whilst you're at it.
