The link varies per region, so go to http://www.greenmangaming.com/ and search for Borderlands 2, click Pre-Purchase and add this code: GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G at checkout.

That should lower the price to $36. The code expires the 10th.

EDIT: The code still works!

EDIT: Code lasts a bit longer.

25% off Digital Downloads with Voucher Code: GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G

Offer Ends Monday 17th September 2012 at 11:00 UTC

Wow dude, thanks for the tip! I was going to buy it on 360 because most of my friends are going to play it there, but I couldn't let this offer pass. Again, great find, thanks!

... This sounds incredibly suspicious. But I have heard of this site before. Maybe I'll give it a try.

@Lukeweizer: I did some research of the site and and does seem totally legit. Also, some other people posted about this in other threads.

They're legit. I buy most of my Steam games from there as they often do 33% off preorder vouchers so I frequently get new releases for £22.50 instead of Steam's £29.99.

I'm surprised to see this game selling for a full $59.99 on Steam. Good to see this offer countering it so harshly.

100% awesome site. Originally bought Dead Island at launch from them since it was for approx 38$ after purchase with the code someone game me from GB.. Awesome place to get games with the random promo codes they offer.

I saw this on r/GameDeals, here specifically.

In the thread they say that they sometimes send out keys a bit earlier then the day of release.

Thanks for the info, @Forcen, it's a pretty great deal.

Edit: Hmm, seems like my card isn't working with them. And it's such a good deal.

Yeah, site is legit. Got Deus Ex: HR at release for like $35.

As for Borderlands 2, I think I'll just wait 2 years and get it for $5 during a Steam summer sale, just like the first one. I've got XCOMs to buy!

GMG has sucked ass whenever I've tried to use it (not in a good way), but apparently others have had more luck.

£22.50, even cheaper than Amazon!

I got Spess Mahrine from them a while back, had no issues then either. PLEASE DON'T FUCK ME OVER FOR BORDERLANDS 2! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

@Jimbo: They had issues with the hitman absolution sale/discount a while back, but other than that I've had no issues getting games from GMG for dirt fucking cheap. Best of both worlds since you get super cheap games, and they often give the steam key (says in the description of the game). I feel like I cheat the system everytime I get a new, or not released yet game for way less than even the usual 10% Steam pre-order.

SMILEY FACE!

Any downside to this? They claim to have all the pre-order bonuses with their keys so I see no reason not to.

Got it. Not sure why. I was at PAX last year and got a free copy at the panel, but I chose the 360 (where all my friends will play). I guess I kind of wanted the PC version as well.

got my debit card locked after i purchased Dark Souls from this site but it was probably only cause i tried to withdraw a large amount afterwards. call to the bank rectified it quickly enough. just a word of warning but the site itself is legitimate!

Do they always give Steam keys? I was wondering whether the Assassins Creed 3 will be a Steam code too.

Only for games with Steamworks DRM. AC3 will be Uplay, because Ubisoft.

All the games that have Steam keys will say "Third Party DRM: Steam. This game requires a free Steam account to play." at the top.

Ah kay, thanks. What was up with Ubisoft saying about stopping their DRM though? I might as well get it for cheap here anyways.

Aren't they stopping the always-on aspect of their DRM, but it'll still require a one-time activation on Uplay? I haven't read up on it too much, but that's what I thought it was.

Okay, cancelled my Steam pre-order for this. Hope it's legitimate. It looks alright. Way better than that shitty Direct2Play website that basically stole $40 from me.

Anyone know if this code will qualify for the pre-order stuff on steam? The premium club junk? Gold guns and the extra mechromancer class or whatever? I pre-ordered a long time ago via GMG and got a similar deal (think this is the 3rd time borderlands 2 has been on steep discount/sale ) and am just wondering if the code will act as a proper pre-order from steam or if they qualify only when they give them out (on release day).

I assume I'll qualify for the stuffs, but I'm not bummed out eitherway (the money I saved can buy the items if need be)

I assume I can't pre-load on Steam if I bought through GMG? Can I expect the key from them at one minute past midnight on release morning?

Yes, the gamepage on the store mentions all that stuff.

The reddit thread i linked previously in this thread says that they might send the code out a few days before release. But does the game even allow preloading? I have not bought a big game on release on steam for a while.

Also people, the code still works! You can check yourself right after putting the item in the cart.

For those suspicious, GMG does work, they are legit, and they're amazing. Steam is the master of putting games that are already out on sale, GMG is the master of giving you new games cheap.

You can also get 2$ off if you use my referal: http://www.greenmangaming.com/?gmgr=vamogoma

Yes I also get 2$ if you do this so I'm bias, but it's still a great site and it's a free two bucks.
