Hey ppl, I have just found this website called Instant Gaming (http://www.instant-gaming.com/) and they seem to sell PC game keys for very cheap prices.

Do you think they are legit? Did anyone bought any keys from them before? Thanks.

All of their domain information is private... which I always find a little curious for a company

purchasing platform Steam has now become unavoidable. In fact, the system of "Cloud" and the ease of access to games where you are a real advantage. On our website you will be able to find all the Steam games at reduced prices for a pleasure increased Thurs Enjoy a pleasant experience wherever you are

 

Broken English?

 

Avoid.

 

Not worth the risk. Plus, while I'm here I'll plug IronMan's topic: http://www.neowin.ne...ad-says-report/

Also their prices arent that much lower than retail. For a $5-$10 savings, i don't see it being worth the risks.

 

Many of these key  sites are legit though, i've used several.

just check the reviews, but again, unless you are going to save at least half the price of the game, its not worth it.

Cheaper and instant is always worth it.

Instant? usually always instant on the legit sources, and its not cheaper if you risk losing the money to scammers.

 

Like i said, just r ead the reviews, if everything is good, buy it from the key sites. I do :) Not a problem so far.

 

http://www.kinguin.us/ is the latest one i've used. seems good.

Has a nice feature where it finds you the best price on many of these sites, as well.

physical stores with up to date inventories are at least two hours away.

 

buying codes here versus on official stores, these codes are generally half the price and even if they're not they're just as instant and money saved.

 

Personally I generally stick to cdkeys.com. sometimes oneplay but they're usually not as cheap.

my bad, i didn't realize people still bought physical boxed copies of computer games. Honestly didnt even enter my mind as being an option, haha.

 

Seems every game today has an official digital download source, which is even their preferred method of delivery.

Yes they are fine I use them sometimes if it's cheaper than others.. a lot of these sites are about these days and they look dodgy but majority are legit companies.

 

check out http://www.dlcompare.com to find the cheapest price, it's a cd key price comparison site.

Usually, there is a reason they're so cheap:

 

1. The keys are intended for eastern European, Russia, east Asia, etc. regions, hence the low price, and selling them in US/EU is basically illegal.

 

and/or

 

2. They're stolen

 

You need to do more research on this particular website, but as Andrew mentioned, the broken english should raise some red flags, and the fact that there is pretty much no information in regard to where they're headquartered and operate from is suspicious too.

Poor English is usually a pretty big red flag for me. At the very least it is unprofessional, the person designing and updating the site should be able to speak the language of the intended audience or be hiring someone to check it before posting it.

Never heard of them before, seems to have nothing but great reviews. Just grabbed Watch Dogs off them for $17.99.
