NBA 2K18 key sellers suggestions

Postby I Hate Mondays on Mon Aug 28, 2017 1:03 am

I was thinking we should start a thread for NBA 2K18 key sellers with trusted websites for all the members (me included) that just want to find a bargain.

Usually, even though they are not the cheapest, I recommend buying directly from Steam to everyone because they are the safest. But for a guy like me, Steam is not accepting my credit card for some reason. In addition to that, my country only sells physical "Key in a box" versions of the game. That means that they get the games on the 16th, they deliver it to us and we usually get them two days after, on the 18th.

Aaand there goes my 5 day early pass every year. Suddenly I have just a one day early pass and it's a bummer. This is happening for me since 2K15 and this year I have decided to try one of those websites that delivers you the key via e-mail days before the pre-release.

Any suggestions of websites that are trusted in this field are much appreciated.

isthereanydeal.com lists legit sellers. Currently I can see best prices are just about sub 40 euro.

I bought it from CDKeys like last year. When I bought it it was 22.99GBP + a 5% Discount Code from their Facebook it was 21.84GBP which should be around 28$/25€. Last Year I think the Keys were EU Only, but you could activate them with a EU VPN and then play without it.
Its obviously a little Greymarket, but so are most Keysellers.

If I find a cheaper price until Release I'll cancel my order. But last Year it all went pretty well, I think I got the PreOrder Crap and the Early Access.

Cdkeys are not an authorized seller. Given the price and region lock they are selling you russian keys.

As always, these non-legit shops carry a risk of the game being revoked from your Steam library.

That said it's not as bad as the well known protection racket G2A.

That's great, I've never lost a game of russian roulette, therefore it must be safe.

The risk is there, there are documented cases of games being revoked.
Finally, by continuous abuse of this system we're getting closer to even harsher region locks or price parity (menaing games in russia, brazil, etc will not cost half the price, but the full price. My bet is on the former as the latter would inevitably lead to higher piracy in these countries.
