Is G2play Safe?

#1 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (5024 posts) -

I noticed that this site, has Dead Space 3 for $45 Now that's enough for me to buy the game early but I want to know if anyone has bought anything from the site before and if it's OK to buy from.

They've been around for a long time and they're still there, if that's to be regarded as an answer.

#3 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (5024 posts) -

@Funkydupe: I guess? I just want to hear from someone who bought from the site before.

I've used them loads of times. No issues whatsoever.

@Funkydupe: Yeah I saw it on there but the code doesn't work for Dead Space 3.

@Davvyk: Thanks, I guess I'll try it out.

@Colourful_Hippie: Ah that sucks. G2Play is okay to shop from, but they're still in the neutral zone in the whole 'authorized seller' debate. Like I said earlier that they're still there means they've adapted well.

You did try this one right? :


Just checking.

@Colourful_Hippie: Well let us know how your experience is, and follow up with another post about dead paste 3!

@Funkydupe: Yup, I think that the games with the cash back offer thing don't allow the coupons cuz I was ecstatic about the Bioshock Infinite deal until I realized I couldn't apply the code on that either.

@EarlessShrimp: Will do, but I don't plan on buying it just yet, there's still time so I'll wait till the weekend or so to see if anything else pops up.

I bought a couple of games from them a few years ago. After the third purchase or so, they suddenly decided that they wanted to see my personal details (passport, etc.) to make sure I was who I said I was. So I said fuck them.

The only product I bought from them several times are 60 days time cards for WoW, never had any issue or ban for scamming. So I think they're quite legit since it's easy get scammed with stolen/false time cards for MMOs. :)

It seems like from that price chart that it changes, so waiting may not be a bad idea

@Colourful_Hippie: Weird. That code totally work for me with both Dead Space 3 and Infinite.

#14 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (5024 posts) -

@Valestis: Plus the cash back offer? Maybe it's a regional thing and there's an icon that says that the code doesn't apply to the cash back offers.

#15 Posted by Valestis (228 posts) -

@Colourful_Hippie: Yeah, with the cash back. They even have ads about getting 25% off plus GMG rewards on the Coming Soon page. Maybe it's regional like you said (I'm from EU).

@Valestis: That's why then. The US is getting the short end of the stick for once.

You could try bypassing that using a VPN app or something though. That might work if they accept an American credit card for an EU purchase.

@Snail: Hmm didn't think of that, I'll try it out later.
