Devolver Digital games being sold illegitimately online

Devolver Digital

PC publisher Devolver Digital has taken to Twitter to warn people that its games are being illegitimately sold by online vendor G2A.com. Devolver also warns that all games purchased from G2A will be cancelled and rendered unusable. 

The tweet came earlier this afternoon, and warned that keys purchased from G2A were not guaranteed and unsupported. 

Their social media activity drew G2A.com into the conversation, and the two publically disccused the issue, leading to revelations that customers had been purchasing Devolver games from the online store and not recieveing their key codes. Contact with customer service had been attempted but to no avail. Devolver themselves attempted to purchase their own games from the website, with identical results. 

G2A.com’s social team promised to “consult it with the Business Operations dept”, bringing an end to the conversation. 

We’ll keep you updated on the situation as further details unfold, but for now it would probably be wise to refrain from purchasing Devolver titles from G2A.com, if only for the time being.

I hope that there has been some misunderstanding of some sort, as I find it hard to believe that G2A has done something wrong - at least intentionally. I've purchased over 30 games from them this year alone (last 5 months) and I've never had any issues.

But then again you never really know about some sites. However, seeing even PayPal is cooperating with G2A in having official PayPal-gaming-sales, I'd find it very surprising if it was something weird going on intentionally.

There was a thing a while back about G2A selling Humblebundle keys en masse, and they have a pretty dodgy rep in general, so I'm not sure why you find it hard to believe.

Google it. In fact... Here you go:

a lot of the key seller sites are illegally reselling, they buy from the cheapest country they can then resell the game at a markup. it's one of the many grey areas in the law that allows these sites to exist, but publishers are well within their rights to go after a site for doing it, due to the lost earnings and the money and product being directed out of areas aimed at poorer people and into mainstream areas.

Yea, I just found out there is a lot of this going on a couple of weeks back. I bought a key from G2play.net labeled Dark Souls (EU/NA) and I typed it into Steam and it said Dark Souls (SA). Put the SA into google and turns out the SA stands for South Asia.

Key worked thankfully. Though I was wondering if it even was going to throughout the download. Won't be going there again.
