    Im quite sure these are illegal.

    If you use these for a steam game they might ban you

    It's EA download manager. Oh well, works for the moment. They do a slilghtly more expensive version with a scan for 19 quid or something so you can prove you bought the game.

    It does look like they have some nice prices.

    However, they have the in their menu the option to buy steam accounts (none available, but I imagine they come and go): this is strictly against the steam TOS. If they are breaking the rules in one area, they might be in others - I'd be wary of buying from them without some independent reviews.

    I'm always wary about these key resellers as it can bite you on the bottom region in the long run and only for a sake of few quid usually.

    The Just Cause 2 Steam key for £19.99 is tempting but as posted above, is it worth any risk. Still tempting though.

    Seems legit to me.

    Too much scaremongering regarding these sites.

    Just Cause 2 - £20 - Go for it.

    MW2 keys were removed from accounts if they were purchased from a different region, and even then is was not all, just some.

    It happens much less frequently with other games.

    A big stack of game boxes in what looks like some guys bedroom with a crudely scribbled note.

    Excellent, where do I hand over my credit card details?

    :p

    You don't, you use google checkout. Plus it's registered in Essex, not China.

    Take them back to Walmart according to that article. LOL. Like that wouldn't raise a few eyebrows. They'd be wandering around looking for one in the UK for a while.

    So they don't take 'proper' payment methods and it's registered at the end of last year to a PO Box in Essex, with contact details relating to a 'free hosting' company.

    Even better.

    I am literally brimming with confidence over this purchase of an EA Store game key that would otherwise only be available directly from EA themselves.

    I'm sure though that they legitimately let some random guy in his room sell keys on their behalf at discount prices, why wouldn't they?

    WUT?

    The game key is printed on the manual in the box.

    These guys cant win.

    First everyone says they are using Keygens (The pic proves this is likely not to be the case) now what will people say?

    They either know somebody from a wholesale supplier or have recently knocked off a Game store/lorry.

    Last time I checked you couldn't buy a retail game and put that key into EADM (seeing as it's being sold as a 'Battlefield: Bad Company 2 EA Download Manager Key') and download it, though perhaps you can show me otherwise?

    I'm not aware that you can get EADM keys anywhere other than direct from EA themselves?

    But it is only £4 more from Game for the limited edition which is activated in steam anyway.
