With Xbox One I always bought my games in the USA store, simply because the prices are much more normal. This is while I am located outside the USA. With gift cards via Cdkeys or Offgamers this always worked fine.
I plan to buy Watch_Dogs Legion and it happens that Cdkeys has a real nice deal on it.
But it says it can’t be activated in The Netherlands, where I live. But if I log in onto the USA Xbox site, redeem the code there, it should work, right?
Last but not least, even though it doesn’t say, this has smart delivery, right? It’s the Xbox One version.
I’m not sure how it works when cdkeys gives you an actual game code but make sure you have a VPN like tunnelbear running. It’s alot easier and usually cheaper to get gift cards, then buy the games directly from the store with foreign codes.
For example xbox brazil is cheapest for UK and may be so for euros? Not sure. The gold version of this is £58 in UK money if buying vouchers from sites like mtc game.
(Sorry to bump an old thread but didn’t feel this warranted a whole new thread of its own.)
Has anyone noticed that almost everything on cdkeys is out of stock all of a sudden? Games that were available yesterday that I was considering buying are now unavailable. Only a handful of things seem to be in stock. And items that initially appear to be available in search results are then impossible to purchase on their individual page (there’s only a ‘notify me’ button where a ‘buy’ button used to be). Hopefully a temporary technical problem rather than a business issue.
I’m wary of places like Eneba because they’re marketplaces for third party sellers, so I suspect there’s a higher chance keys might have been obtained illegally. Cdkeys is more of a grey market site - you’re still not getting the keys directly from the publisher, but you can be confident they’re not stolen or shady, as I understand it. Thanks though!
Ah, I didn’t know about that, it’s a totally reasonable concern. I have seen some posts (not here) about how codes bought through Eneba were used already, though I’ve never had that issue myself with the many codes I bought.
Am I the only one who had problems with Cdkeys? My friend gave me a gift card, but I couldn’t use it. All the games went out of stock all of a sudden. Only a few items were available. It seemed like a long-lasting technical problem. I was so sad I couldn’t use my gift card. However, my friend cheered me up with another present from https://www.jetgiftbaskets.com/. It was such a nice gesture. He chose a basket with my favorite food products. He added a bottle of campaign and fruits. I wish everyone had friends like him.
