Im trying to find a way to squeeze a couple games out of one. See I can either get one $60 AAA game or multiple smaller games that add up to $60.

I have my eye on.....

Far Cry Primal $20
Tyranny $39
CoD: Infinite Warfare
SPAZ 2
Titanfall 2 $30
Homefront Revolution $9
Deus Ex Mankind Divided
Mafia 3 $30 normal or $40 with season pass
Rainbow Six Siege $15 *starter edition with only 4 operator slots)

The prices are the best price I can find on legit sites.

I have used cdkeys.com multiple times without issue. that being said...
1) If it is a pre-order, you usually won't get the key until the day of release, so no pre-loading.
2) The keys are basically a picture of the physical key they get. It is odd at first, but they work.
3) Be careful about what you order. some things are region locked and they do tell you on the purchase page, but it is easy to miss.

That is it...

Publisher says "I think we can sell this for $50 in America, but for Lowinkomeistan let's charge $20."

CDKeys gets copies of the game in Lowinkomeistan, probably mostly not stolen copies, maybe.

CDKeys comes to you in a back alley and opens a trenchcoat with a bunch of low priced game keys, tells you not to ask too many questions.

Are they the ones that ask for your drivers license or some such nonsense?

i'd rank cdkeys.com somewhere between 'grey market' and 'black market'. 'smoke market'? and that's with the benefit of the doubt.

Gamersgate has been around for a long time, now - they were one of the first digital game distribution sites (started by Paradox). (the other two not named Steam were Impulse and Direct2Drive)

Ok kool on Gamersgate.

I was too worried to use cdkeys so I spent $5 more and got it from Amazon.

Never had that and would never give it if they did.
