Flying Bundle too
That's a bundle site, not a store (BS, IG and Humble have stores in their sites :P)
Ah, my mistake
I want one more confirmation for this :)
I bought there Bioshock, Duke Nukem Forever, Saints Row 4 - all for steam.
But I also bought there all Tomb Raiders from first one to underworld without on-line DRM (there is still keycheck during install, not sure if completely DRM-free after installing)
But its official steam retailer?
Yeah, I've talked to them. They're pretty active on LowcyGier.pl , but that's in Polish. Someone asked them the same question and they said "yes we are".
Yeah, muve.pl and its czech/slovak sister site muve.cz are official
Thank you, added muve.cz
Thanks, added muve.pl
Muve is owned by Cenega that is a part of 1C Company group.
And if you added both muve.pl and muve.cz you should also add these:
Does they sell steam keys with email delivery the sites you mentioned?
These are the same services you listed but in different countries/languages the same as for muve.pl and move.cz.
ok i edited and posted with the right way
Thank you, added.
Most of those are digital retailers, not resellers. They get the keys directly from developers/publishers. Kinguin, G2A and Co. on the other hand are resellers.
Added ShinyLoot and IndieGameStand

They will buy my Steam games? How much do they pay for them?
English is not my native language and i dont understand shit from your post.
EDIT: Joke accepted after serious consideration.
i don't really think you made a mistake. maybe a little...
the joke is to read only the last 4 words
I think the "your" create problems, i removed it and edited the title.
are you not concerned about the "bad juju" bankruptcy? i mean, we still don't know what will happen to indiegala...
I was unaware, thanks for the info. Damn i requested a refund 1 week ago because i bought the same bundle 2 times and the guys refunded me in no time.
you changed the comment right? :D
Yes when i was writing the thead yesterday the site was open, i was trying to say to you that its not closed yet, but to be sure i checked now and its closed...
EDIT: Open again
what does bad juju has to do with indiegala?
sure about that? :D
yep. pretty much
It's IndieROYALE that'll be affected, not IndieGALA.
i read indiegala. but you may be correct.
the internet is full of misinformation. too much
Desura/Indie Royale Owner Bad Juju Games Has Filed For Bankruptcy.
Im safe now? :P
sorry for the trouble.
i honestly though it was indiegla.
a little bit of fun on saturday :p
Indie Gala gives us free games, and sometimes good bundles, will be sad :( even if their sites work like shit.
Bad Juju = IndieRoyale (not IndieGala)
oh okay, never bought an Indie Royale bundle, because their prices and the games the offer are so bad, only got one for free once from a Twitch giveaway, once there was one good bundle with Sniper Elite v2, but I'm glad I decided not buying it, after some time that game was given for free to everyone on Steam.
So won't be a loss, at least to me, but a about Desura, I didn't like use Desura a lot, but it's nice having it. Desura is from Bad Juju too no?
well, i bought most debut bundles. and they gave me a constant flow of new greenlit games. Also, in the past you could even get 2 keys for each greenlit game by first getting your key in Desura, then on the bundle page. so in total, i got a lot out of IndieRoyale. i think it's a shame, if we won't have this anymore in the future.
Never liked greenlight bundles :/
This is a bundle site
They now have the DIG Point Store, where you can buy games directly. But I have no idea how "official" that is.
After reading the item descriptions on this guy's sales... I am guessing not GamesGalaxy
Get this... the seller responded to an email I sent and further explained that you actually had to DISCONNECT from the internet prior to playing...
Here's an annotated screenshot for those that don't wish to follow the link:
Online use and multi-player is NOT available with this version The key code is for single-player only. Please do not purchase if you want to use the game online.
Should have thrown in... "or don't wish to be party to a criminal act as well as a total d-bag."
Every game that I've seen on there is "download only". Yeah, totes legit.
So basically a pirate site which sells the downloads and, at a huge price. I thought I had seen everything in this market...
It's got a be a lucrative way to go... I mean think about it: You have no overhead because you don't have a physical store, don't have staff because you stole the games and someone else's work, and get paid by people who prefer to pay for stolen items because they want to give their money away. I mean the only real downside could be the prison roommate if you get caught and convicted... he brews his "wine" in the toilet and likes to cuddle...
Thanks, i didnt know that newegg sell digital games :)
Are region specific like US, or worldwide?
I believe they are region specific similar to Amazon.com, though keys bought from them should just work anywhere.
shop.ubi (YES, Ubisoft sell steam cd keys for steamworks games)
Thanks, UBI Store has steam games, WOW!
I think Gamefly stop selling games but instead rent.
MacGameStore Some of the games have Steam keys and they have bundles once in a while.
I think its the same company with WinGameStore but i add this too thanks.
Kinguin is the euro version of G2A, both of which are grey market.
Square Enix Store: https://store.eu.square-enix.com/emea_europe/
Added and thanks :)
I forgot the publisher stores :S
Added: Paradox Store and gamasavr
This comment was deleted 2 months ago.
Thanks, added splitplay and itch.io :)
Added: Direct2Drive, Funstock and indie store Coinplay.
One more confirmation for this store?
Actually, Green Man Gaming isn't fully official. They were involved with Sniper Elite 3 revoked keys and now they sell Witcher 3 against CDPRed wishes.
But 99,(9)% of times they are fully legit and official and all.
i don't think they were involved in the sniper elite 3 thing.
EDIT: no, they were not: http://steamcommunity.com/app/238090/discussions/0/540744937494308420/
Well, people reported their GMG keys were revoked. Hard to say whom to believe - company or users - as everybody lies.
Devs also said they didn't revoke any keys sent to GMG.
it also wouldn't make too much sense. as far as i know, GMG gets their keys directly from the publisher, while G2A & Co sell retail keys. in that case retail copies were stolen, and only those keys were revoked. i know there were a few people who claimed that their GMG keys were revoked, but as psyko said - hard to know the truth.
if i remember correctly a uk shop had problems with sniper 3 revoked keys...thought i can't remember the name
simplycdkeys. (Also with Dark Souls 2 iirc.)
is this one official? it's from russia
Added GameAgent (MAC and Linux game store)
Info taken from here
A bump for those who don't like the steam winter sale and searching for alternative ways... the most stores have sales running.
It's the publisher and not the platform that's important. Since the issues with CDPR and The Witcher 3 several publishers have stated that GMG aren't an authorised seller
A fail meeting for partnership with CDPR dont make them unauthorized STEAM retailers :)
It's not Steam (Valve) that authorize a seller it's the publisher of the game on question. Activision, Ubisoft and CDPR have all stated that GMG aren't licensed to sell their products. It doesn't matter whether the games are to be redeemed on Steam, Uplay, Origin, Galaxy or whatever
But didn't Square Enix and EA jump in an say that GMG is an authroized seller of their games?
The only other specific I'm aware of is Warner Brothers who initially stated they weren't authorized then later retracted that statement. It doesn't change the fact that the point I was making still stands - it's the publisher and not the platform that is responsible for that authorization and just because a store is authorized to sell Game X doesn't mean they are also authorized to sell Game Y
does anybody know if instant-gaming is a legit store too?
