You might want to fix your title. I read "PrePurchased" and was thinking WTF. PrePurchase = Pre-Order, Pre-Purchased = Second-hand, used OR already paid for.

Yes thats what i thought too, please correct the title as it seems confusing.:shake:

walterg74 01-11-2013 10:59 AM

Not confusing at all, leave the guy alone....

The "d" at the end says it all: the games HAVE BEEN purchased previously, his title is not "prepurchase", so not confusing, or go back to school...

Ken062083 01-11-2013 11:07 AM

Anybody know why the new Bioshock isn't applicable in the states? I know GMG is in the UK but what makes Bioshock so special?

stay away from that website. I ordered from them twice when they had good deals on Arma II and both times I was given bad CD keys. I am currently on my 5th day of waiting for my refunds.

I hate that you had such issues. I've ordered from GMG many, many times and never had a problem.

okinawanmatt 01-11-2013 11:26 AM

The title, since it is stated in past tense, means that we will be buying used games ("prepurchased"). However, the listing is for pre-orders. The title is incorrect.

I tried to give them a chance to redeem after the first bad key... they proceeded to argue that it must be user error on my side. After thoroughly proving that the issue was the key they provided, they credited me back the money and I purchased the game + expansion again. The key worked for the regular game but not the expansion, again we went back and fourth for about 3 days(i would usually get 1 response a day from them, even though I would respond minutes after they replied to my ticket). Finally they tested the keys they provided on their end and admitted fault, told me I would get a refund in 3-5 business days. I still don't see any indication that they have refunded my money.

Maybe this was a 1 off thing but it just left a bad taste in my mouth. I ended up buying it on steam and was playing 1 hour later.

Can anyone purchase anything from the site? I can't get past the cart. When i hit checkout it doesnt move at all on Chrome and on IE it says it can't load the webpage and tells me to submit a ticket.

Yeah I've bought many a steam key from them over the years and all transactions have worked out without a single problem.

In fact you may be the first person I've ever heard who has had a problem. Probably an isolated incident, but either way they should have taken the initiative to correct your problem well before 5 days. I'd be pissed too.

I too have used them for many transactions with no problems. Hopefully it gets worked out for you quickly xeri0us,

vgyliu 01-11-2013 02:10 PM

So Im guess no one has a problem right now ordering games from GMG?

yankidank 01-11-2013 02:18 PM

Sweet. Picked up Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed, which brought it down to $20.25 after the existing 10% off pre-order bonus.

This will be the third game that I've bought through GMG and redeemed through Steam.

epona 01-11-2013 03:03 PM

Tomb Raider works too. Costs $33.75 with the coupon code.

Gabik123 01-11-2013 03:14 PM

Ordered Alien: Colonial Marine :)

awesome that makes me feel a bit better, I generally dislike buying games before I read the reviews but this was a good price

Gibberling 01-11-2013 08:28 PM

DMC: Devil May Cry for 37.50 with $2 cash back.
Great deal, thanks OP.

duhh 01-11-2013 09:29 PM

In contrast to the negative posters, my US purchases from this site have always been a resounding success. My UK account (I move around occasionally) got a few games for free, which have also worked fine. Pre-ordered south park. Should have done it when the 30% was around, but this is still a good deal.

Swolern 01-11-2013 10:13 PM

I second this, but some credit cards will charge you a conversion fee since they are based in the UK. It was only a few cents on purchases of games that were only a few dollars, but can see it being a couple bucks for preorders. Use PayPal to avoid this.

paypal credit card payment will still be charged for the fee tho right?

kasty 01-12-2013 01:54 AM

ordered Sim City LE and CoH2. was forced to order separately, the 25% code wouldn't apply to both in cart.

jetsfan4ever80 01-12-2013 07:05 AM

Thanks! Ordered Sim City, I'm assuming this is probably the best deal I will get on it before release. It's a bummer it's Origin only though...

chare375 01-12-2013 07:28 AM

I got SimCity LE for $45 bucks, nice!

rwmj5 01-13-2013 05:44 PM

Anyone know which services these downloads will be useable with for sim city and crysis?

Obviously sim city will have to be run on Origin, but what would GMG use for Crysis? Steam? Origin? Something different?

Edit: To potentially answer my question, I saw this page which claims Crysis 3 should be able to be activated on Steam. Not 100% sure if it's true but figured I'd share the info

PO'd DS3 for $45. Nice find.

I have used paypal CC and have never been charged a fee

Since they are international and based in UK, I would avoid using direct CC unless you live in the UK. I heard too many horror stories of people using direct CC and getting denied....due to them based so far. Paypal is the way to go in this situation since they take care of all the international stuff

It's there [greenmangaming.com]. It's spelled "SimCity" all one word on their website though, so might be why you didn't find it in search.

That actually isn't GMG fault. This was a fault with ARMA 2. Google bad ARMA 2 serial keys. I actually had the same issue with ARMA 2 from steam itself. All you have to do is jump through some hoops and the keys tend to work, in the rare cases they don't you will need to contact the store that you purchased the key from.

I will also vouch for GMG. I was hesitant at first to use their services, but I have used their services a few time as well as a portion on my friends, all positive reviews on the site. I think I may have only heard of one guy mentioning it taking 30 minutes for his key to be supplied.

Now...do I want to get Sim city...I have had this urge lately to play that game...I just don't know if I wanna use Origin, wasn't a fan of their distribution when I played SW:TOR, not sure if I wanna try it again. That and I really like just having a single game browser to launch all my games and keep track of them.

killerkoala5590 01-15-2013 04:23 AM

found it through a link in the thread but theres no where to add it to my cart? maybe they sold out of keys?

Nvuono 01-16-2013 06:58 PM

Just bought Aliens:Colonial Marines and chose the cash-back option.

I paid with PayPal and got the $2 cash-back INSTANTLY so it's come out to $35.50 in the end

steven88 01-17-2013 01:29 AM

Damn they took off Crysis 3 to be allowed to use with the coupon!!

I went ahead and bought Dead Island Riptide cuz it still works....but damn Crysis 3 is down....it worked a few days ago when I was checking prices. But yeah, I hope it gets fixed...or the next GMG promo allows this

jojojonny 01-17-2013 02:05 AM

Not letting me use the voucher with SimCity. Weird.

vgyliu 01-17-2013 03:00 AM

They changed the credit on Simcity. It use to be $1 cash back or $2 GMG now its $5 cash back or $8 GMG but coupon stopped working

Contacted support, they told me that the voucher no longer works for EA games for people in my region, I'm assuming he means US residents.

The code stopped working for EA games only. But still works for all other games

This sucks because I was JUST ready to pull the trigger on Crysis 3...then the code stopped working! And it worked just fine the day earlier, I just didn't have the funds yet

I have a feeling EA might have told GMG to quit giving huge discounts on their games at launch :(
