Green Man Gaming selling dodgy keys?

17 November 2015

video games There's been some murmurs of discontent among the gaming community, concerning the source of Green Man Gaming’s game keys. They've been selling discounts on Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which have seen some people believing that they're not getting their keys directly from Activision.

A number of people have said on Reddit and social media, that they've had issues with Black Ops 3 keys that they purchased from GMG. On Reddit, some mods were told by Activision and Ubisoft, that Green Man Gaming aren't in fact an authorised seller of theirs.

So what's the craic? Well, Green Man Gaming chief executive Paul Sulyok told Gamespot: "Let’s be clear here; there is a difference between being an authorised retailer for some titles, and being a retailer selling keys that have been sourced responsibly through authorised third parties with revenue going back to the publisher."

"Where possible, we work directly with publishers and distributors to make sure customers have the very best experience with us… Whenever things outside of our control have happened, we have instantly and fairly tried to make it right."

It is worth pointing out that EA, ArenaNET, Bethesda and Devolver Digital have all said that Green Man Gaming are an authorised seller, so it doesn't look like there's anything fishy going on.

So there you go gamers - you can take off your tinfoil hats for the day.
