G2A is really digging itself deeper and deeper...

I like it, that shop really shouldn't have the success it has. Just pure greed, both by their executives, their sellers and their customers.

Don't really get the G2A hate, it's just Ebay but for game keys. I've sold keys on there myself and bought keys and never had a problem. Bad Apples are going to sell stolen keys whether G2A exists or not. There are 100+ key sites on the internet. As long as steam keys exist they will be sold.

Demonizing G2A will accomplish nothing, and I've yet to see someone give a suggestion on how it could improve beyond "G2A is bad, should die." Besides within the last year they've already changed it so you need to verify ID before you can even begin selling, if someone is selling stolen keys they can easily be tracked down and punished.

That's not a reason to pull a blind eye on them. Besides, they often don't sell Steam keys at all, just a link to a steam gift. That's something G2A could find out with a minimum of policing. But how about you look this video:

With just very light policing, they could have found out that most of those keys are fraudulent.

Also, if developers and publishers alike outright tell you to rather download a cracked copy of the game instead of buying the game there, something must be really off with them.

I hope this is true.


The specs look feasible, though having all of them with hyperthreading is suspicious due to the security problems coming with it on Intel's platforms. Also, i5 buyers will be pissed again if true since the i3 would have 8 threads while the current i5 only has 6...

The most unbelievable part for me are the prices. Intel can't afford to do so due to the production shortages. Unless that's just the nominal price and the real prices will go up right after launch, or that AMD has stolen so much market share that the shortages don't apply anymore. Finally, the i3 to i7 could simply be old, cherry-picked coffee lake CPUs with their hyperthreading enabled, thus only the i9 would actually be really new chips - but that depends also on the iGPU. If that one's new, then the whole chip is.
