g2a is a grey market reseller. They get their keys from places that aren't necessarily always legit. Recent keys for Far Cry 4 were revoked from various grey market sellers because they were fraudulently purchased with stolen credit cards. If a deal seems too good to be true (and it's not a steam sale) it probably is.

i was under the impression that it was a site where people from other parts of the world buy the games which might be cheaper by them and sell it to the rest of us?


Sometimes they are, you never know exactly how those keys are acquired however, so it's very much a buyer beware situation. The developers and publishers have every right to revoke keys that they discover to have been stolen, or fraudulently purchased, and this is the second major occurrence of that happening, the exact same situation with fraudulent keys that people bought from grey market resellers being revoked also happened last year with Sniper Elite 3.


ahh okay, the game i wanted was there for $4 so i guess its worth the risk..i can lose $4...just hope i won't get charged

I wouldn't trust G2A if I were you. Despite them saying the codes are legit, half the time they will get them from illegal sources or from countries where the games are cheaper. This is bad because it avoids tax laws in the other countries.

If you don't mind having your codes revoked cause the seller turns out to be a criminal or lied to a publisher to get review copies.
I think people just got lucky with Ubi's change of heart on their revoked codes. These sites need to disappear.

Torrent them. :O Only downside is no multilayer if you plan on it or no games from Unity since they practically require some sort of network connection before you can play their games.

Or wait for sales....
