Tempted, but I've been bitten one too many times on pre-orders. I'll wait for the reviews then decide how long I'm prepared to wait for it to drop to a reasonable price

Please dont preorder games. Youre welcome, and thank you!

Tempted, i have faith in the product, but the demo made it look like dishonoured 2 reskinned, I know they use the same engine, but maybe a bit too soon for more of the same.

On the other hand, great previews (ok, only based on first hour's play) so its a release day game for me; is £24 too big a risk? Ner.

CDKeys are pretty good for refunding preorders, I've cancelled a few times in the past and gotten my refund within hours. If reviews drop and it sounds bad I'll just pull out

Does anyone know if this is a stealth game, I hate stealth games and did not like dishonoured 2, on the other hand I like space/horror first person shooters.

FYI the voucher code is no longer valid

I've always had a good service with CD keys myself. And even with there facebook 5% discount. This is still a great price.

Every video of this game i've seen looks awful. Generic FPS with nothing that stands out for me.
but it's a good price I suppose for a new game.

Find it strange that they have opted out of giving pc gamers no demo.
Sets alarm bells ringing.

It's a stealth-optional game. You could do it in stealth but the larger monsters seems to have a lot health before being taken down.
There will be a demo for PS4 and xbox, no news on pc demo.

I enjoyed the original, but too many flags around this game to preorder, not least is people in this thread asking if it is a stealth game - either just because of the mention of dishonored 2 engine, or because the gameplay has fundamentally changed from the original.

Reviews first, a demo would be nice (PC) and then we consider buying. Going in blind after more than a decade wait for a sequel is just asking to get burned.

It's not a sequel - Prey 2 was cancelled; this is just a game using the same name because Bethesda bought the rights and feel they have to use them somehow. They've described it as a 'spiritual successor to System Shock', which sounds great in theory, because System Shock is great, but shouldn't they really be calling it a spiritual successor to, oh, I don't know, the original Prey? (Also don't we already have a bunch of System Shock spiritual successors? BioShock for one, plus an actual System Shock remake and sequel.)
So other than the basic theme of 'human on a spaceship' it seems to bear little relation to the original. Not that that means it will be terrible - I'm still hanging on to hope - but instead of pre-ordering I'm just going to go and replay the original.

Just.Wondering

Not sure where you got that from but the first Dishonored used the Unreal Engine, Dishonored 2 used the Void Engine (developed internally by Arkane Studios specifically for the game, based on id Tech 5, which was used for Rage and the two newest Wolfenstein games, but Arkane said only 20% of the id Tech 5 engine remains in Void), and this new Prey uses CryEngine. So they might look/feel similar because it's the same developer, but not because it's the same engine.

Originally it was going to be a sequel - it's not now though. Arkane talk of it as spiritual sequel to system shock and/or a re-imagining of the original. For all intents and purposes forget the original Prey here..

It's a YouTube concept to tell others what to do with their own money. At launch this will cost more than it does right now because that's how 3rd party key resellers work. If you really want it then why not order it now and save a few quid in the process?

It is a bit of a shame that there won't be a PC demo, I'll agree on that. However data mining and leaks now make PC demo's a problem unfortunately. Capcom regretted offering one for RE7 almost immediately because people drilled through it and spoiled the entire plot.

I'm not really sure why they're calling it Prey 2 tbh. The original game is a decade old and was pretty obscure anyway. Bethesda are big enough that they could have just released it as a new IP.

Prey 2 was cancelled in 2014. I think the idea is that this is a new IP - but the re-use of the name is definitely 'odd'

Does anyone know if this contains the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack that is avalible from direct steam pre-orders?

Thanks

Don't pre-order, don't buy from the grey market. Cold.

Is this the same PREY from early 2000s where you could run up the walls?

no chance on pre-ordering, cold

Its a shame its not a remake of the original game that game was awesome. The song on the credits at the end of it (After Midnight Project - Take me Home) was of my favourite songs really fitted it well.

Sorry, I liked this by mistake. How is buying a grey market key immoral? As long as it's not stolen then the publisher is still being paid. In fact it is arguably far less immoral than buying a used copy of a console game from the high street, Ebay or Amazon or lending a game from a friend.

yeah you keep telling yourself that.....everyone knows how they obtain their keys, that's why they are banned on here. Grey imports rob the publisher of profit FACT

They also used to sell xbox accounts, which is a direct violation of MS user policy.

I wouldn't touch cdkeys with a bargepole, I go through legitimate retailers for my games (Steam etc) and ensure the publisher gets every penny they rightfully earned.

Take a minute and look at what you just wrote.

......................................

Give up?

They're not banned on here. If they were banned on here then this thread wouldn't exist. And I think you'll find that most publishers don't earn a damn thing unless you consider money spent on marketing, YouTuber sponsorship and lavish press parties to be cash well spent. The publisher are mostly just the money men and the bridge between the developer and retail. I'm not entirely sure that CDKeys have ever actually sold Xbox accounts either.

dude, trust me they sold xbox accounts, as I unwittingly purchased one not realising it was an account, I thought it was a key (and the price was similar to other retailers for a key which was even more confusing)....then cdkeys refused to give money back when I called them out on it.

I love how 'experts' like you think you understand the financial working of software / developer houses. Well you don't buddy, you are not privy to their financial statements, strategies or management of their business.

The internet is full of 'experts' who flippantly explain away malpractice to convince themselves and everybody else that what they are doing is not immoral.

Grey imports steal profits from companies, that is an absolute irrefutable published and documented fact, and your ostentatious display of vulgarity on the subject wont change that fact!

I will never purchase anything from cdkeys, and I know lots of other people who don't either for the same reason, so don't lecture me. If you want to buy from them, good luck to you, but unless you can put some proof on here they they are not siphoning profits from developers I am not interested, pal.

You bought an Xbox account from CDKeys? Well normally I would take your word for it but since you're kind of being a jerk about this, I want proof or it didn't happen. I have been using them and following them on social media for years and I've never seen them market accounts. Not once.

You haven't tackled my original question either. Ignoring scam artists like PSN account websites, G2A etc, how is using a grey key seller any worse than buying a used game or lending one from a friend?

There are trustworthy key sellers who are considered 'grey' and the only reason why they are considered grey is because they don't sign into the same local RRP agreements that the likes of Amazon, Green Man Gaming etc do. Nuuvem for example were told they would be stripped of their trusted status if they didn't take every measure possible to restrict their products from Europeans and Americans. What you're doing here is really just standing up for huge corporations at the detriment of your own wallet.

what we have here is a mexican stand off, you have you;re opinion, and I have mine......I can't prove re account, I don't have access to it anymore, but I purchased like 3 years ago. Maybe, they realised they shouldn't be doing it themselves, so stopped, but they were 100% selling xbox live accounts marketed as games......

I don't think the loan to friend thing really stacks up, it is not apples V apples, it is coming up with a side argument tio support another. I loan a friend a game I purchased to a friend, I still purchased it and gave the company my money.

The RRP agreements are there for a reason, you can't talk about profit motive and then ignore cdkeys from that statement. Why do you think they exist, to make you happy, or to make money? They don't make money following accepted fair process as followed by other retailers, that have to sell higher to retain margin and ensure developers get their margins.

There is no way that cdkeys are passing fair margin back to the publishers.......that is where I think it is immoral, because I think these guys work hard and deserve their rewards. If I buy a game from amazon X% goes to publisher, if I buy one from cdkeys it doesn't......

CDKeys source a lot of their games from this country. They buy in bulk like the major retailers do but don't sign into the RRP and NDA contracts that the bigger companies do. I know that because they used to post pictures of their deliveries on Facebook and Twitter.

The developer will get the same regardless. Contracts for development employees are usually salary paid (the games industry doesn't work like Hollywood just yet) and there's occasionally a small commission involved but most employees don't even get that. Only a few of the top level staff usually do.

In most cases the majority of profit goes to the publisher and investors because they're the ones who paid the salaries and took the risk on the game's development. I actually know a few full-time game developers who buy their games from the likes of MMOGA and CDKeys because they want to play the latest titles but need to watch the bank balance in the same way that everyone else does.

I find it ironic that you're dissing internet "experts" who flippantly offer their views, and then you go on to do precisely that yourself.

Zoso cdkeys has never sold Xbox accounts so you are obviously just trolling. I've been using cdkeys for years without any issues, also they have provided sources in the past to prove where their keys have been purchased. I've pre-ordered from them many times and had no issues cancelling preorders, I would say they have very good customer service. You are missing out by not purchasing from them considering the obvious saving you would make.

zoso1313

So you create a fake guest account to reply to yourself. You have a strange obsession with cd keys, an unhealthy one I must say.

Wherever a cd keys post is put up your negative and unnecessary reply is to be found which I do find rather bizarre on a deal website.

If you're not here for a deal I suggest you go somewhere else and stop posting negative responses to genuine deal post.

Oh and rating down posts based on your lonely crusade is just plain stupid.

wtf is wrong with you...
