Pre ordered it off GMG and tried to activate it on steam with the code they gave me and kept saying ''invalid'' anyone else having this issue?!?!?

The game is not out yet you will get the code about 3 days before the game launches from past experience.

The code you have is for the promotional mini game they released.

@snakeitachi: Funny though how your comment on the whole community would, logically, encompass you as well. Besides, literally the first reply you got gave you exactly the reply you sought, so why react like you were just insulted?

I thank you good sir, for you've made my night a little more amusing than it already was.

Here's a frustrating problem, bought the game from GMG and when I went to redeem the code on steam it says that it has already been redeemed on another account. Anyone else having this issue?

@gaminghooligan: Thankfully, no, but try out the forums or something? Maybe they ran out of keys and are now recycling old ones?

Well, I don't mean they're shady. I actually bought it from there myself and it's unlocked on my Steam account as we speak. I just figure maybe their system ran out of keys and is now cycling over because there isn't anywhere else to go. Not enough supply for demand? I don't know. Either way, it's a fucked up situation. Hopefully, they'll try to fix it soonish.

Yeah hopefully they get on this, I've got a support ticket pending with both them and 2k. It's good to hear someone say their code worked, although if their support doesn't get back soon it will make me consider looking elsewhere for new releases. I had similar trouble with the new Hitman from GMG also. Oh well, I guess that's the price you pay for good deals lol.

That shouldn't have to be true. I've bought from them a couple of times since buying Borderlands 2. I bought Infinite just 2 days ago. Maybe I was one of the last "good" ones or I was just lucky.
