Great price for a hard copy, can get the key to download it on Steam for €8.97 ]here

Is this pre-owned? If so meh as it can be found for £13-£14 elsewhere. If new is a warm deal as it is cheaper on steam but it is nice to have it physically.

Great Price for a hard copy of the game.

If it's preowned then it won't work.

Not the best idea in the world to purchase from websites like that, valve will most likely disable your copy of the game at some point.

That link also says "In this case, a Thai website was selling retail box product keys for Thailand to people outside of Thailand. Since those keys are only for use in Thailand, people who purchased product keys from the Thai website are not able to use those product keys in other territories."

Also... because Poland (where the website is based) is also in the EU we can legally buy from there without consequence

I don't know why everyone is going on about having a hard copy cause everything will have to be downloaded again anyway and if anything like mine it takes so long you might as well order straight from steam!

I'd like to know what the legal arguement is here actually.

Did these keys come with a known region restriction from Valve when they were sold?

It's surely like buying a t-shirt in Asia and therefore it's illegal to wear it in the US or EU simply because it was cheaper....?

For me, when I buy something it feels strange to buy something electronically and that you don't have the item there physically. Plus it looks good to have your collection stacked up on your shelf! :thumbsup:
