There's actually a guy on GG's facebook page saying he bought TWENTY (!!!) copies and bitching about how he didn't get all the keys. THIS GUY ACTUALLY BOUGHT TWENTY COPIES to sell for a profit. That's 80 copies of Borderlands 2. Greedy piece of shit.

our economy is driven by greed. chill.

Well I didn't see any of the ones I paid for get cancelled, but all my orders that were pending for the Bethesda pack are now canceled, I'm probably guessing that's true for the pending Borderlands 2 orders as well.


I'm really confused now, I thought I just need to sit back & let the payment processed for few days when I paid for the bethesda pack.

I've send support ticket for refund though, hope I get my money back :(

Look I'm as much of a cheapie as anyone else, but Borderlands 2 Four Pack for ~$11 was obviously a huge mistake. All the bitching about gamersgate is ridiculous. Of course the site is slow, they are getting slammed with purchases trying to take advantage of the price mistake. Of course the site goes down. They had to pull the plug. Yes it was a mistake, but mistakes are made every day in every industry.

I've gotten some great deals on gamersgate for years now. They have been a great resource for me and always good to work with. I wouldn't blame gamersgate at all for not honoring all of these purchases. It was so obviously a mistake. I hope they don't let this put them out of business. I'd hate to lose a good STEAM competitor.

Can't believe I missed this. I've been looking for a good price on Borderlands 2 for a while. Even getting one copy for 11 would have been an insta buy for me.

Bro, he just has lots of gamer friends. :lol:

I'd love to be able to play the game, but I'm sure a handful of customers will rush to empty out the stock when it arrives because they felt the need to buy a shelf full of the same game. For what its worth, I don't mind. A month or two of waiting isn't going to kill me. I will have a few late Christmas gifts to give out though!

Also, I agree that I don't want them to go out of business. Of course I'd love to get a key or two, but crap happens.

I was more complaining about their system in general. Why can't they just take down one sale or fix the price without breaking the whole website. I wanted to buy Ghost Recon but kept getting errors trying to log in, and I eventually got my account locked for a day.

I've just completed my pending order after the payment didn't go through when the site was overloaded. I also don't seem to be able to get any keys. Nobody knows what's up. Most probably they ran out of keys I guess. They should work on their information system.

Well, I see I shouldn't have tried to actually get a good night's sleep. It just doesn't pay.

Oddly enough, I just grabbed Borderlands 1 yesterday.

If anyone is feeling nice and looking to sell me one or two keys cheap, let me know.

My pending (unpaid) BL2 orders were cancelled, both the 4-pack at $11 and the 4-pack at $22.

Doesn't really bother me since I wasn't wild about potentially not getting the keys for a month and then trying to find buyers. All my actual purchased/paid things are just fine.

Interestingly, I had a pending order for Blue Coins from this morning that I (thankfully) didn't complete. That order is still good. So this was a surgical strike, not a pending order carpet bombing...

Just received a refund notice from GG for the Bethesda bundle... I didnt request a refund, I was going to wait until they got the keys. I guess they are no longer honoring it. In the email they also mentioned the Borderlands 4 pack fiasco, so looks like that killed the deal for me... They did mention possible compensation for my trouble, but I'm not holding my breath on that. Probably a free copy of Volvo the Game 2 lol

Yep, I also just got a refund for my Bethesda giftable pack, and it's no longer in My Shelf. Looks like the pack that I managed to redeem all but 2 games on before they ran out of keys is still good though.

I dont think they can un-redeem the key, so looks like you got a free copy of Skyrim.

Cool, I will take it. I was playing dishonored while trying to get the bundle so that wasnt a big deal for me. I now know how they work with requesting your key from the site so ill be ready for the next GG deal.

So, I dont get it, I bought the pack, redeem all the keys, after that they refund me all the money BUT they dont take away the pack?

I haven't gotten any notices yet (for the Bethesda and Stardock bundles).

My concern is that they may try to contact Valve and have them deregister/remove the keys in question seeing as they are refunding people for them.

If they don't do that them I'm also concerned they may resell some of these keys if they are yanking them back from people's GG accounts.

The whole thing is very messy.

I didn't get this email. I guess it's just a matter of time. I sold two keys and gave away others, so I sure hope they don't find a way to revoke them on Steam!

I redeemed Skyrim from the Bethesda pack but nothing else. No refund for me yet... I don't know how they will be doing it since I already activated a game.

It's been done, like the people who redeemed those Hitman Sniper Challenge keys that were supposed to be Japan only. It happens sometimes to people who trade with Russians too.

It doesn't happen often but it's not unprecedented and if Gamersgate is refunding people back their money they certainly have a case to go to Valve and request those keys be removed and unregistered so they can sell them again.

I'm not saying this is what will happen but it seems to me that it's a possibility.

Damn, I purchased a Stardock bundle from somebody and sold a Bethesda pack to another.

I don't know if any of you remember, but back in June of 2011, Ubisoft had a glitch where you could get several different games on their site for free; some of these activated on Steam (RUSE, etc.). I remember after everything settled and emails were given, my games eventually disappeared from my Steam library. So it is possible that they can revoke them from Steam itself.

So, lets get the facts.

1. All the people who had PENDING orders, got a refund and the game disappeared from the shelf.
2. All the people who bought the pack BUT didnt get ANY of the keys, got a refund and the game gone from the shelf too.

So, how many of you got the pack, redeemed the keys, and still have the pack in the shelf? (and got a refund).

I really dont think they gonna "gift us" 6 games, they just have to tell steam to cancel the subscription of XXXX keys and done.

The only games I haven't redeemed are Fallout 3 and Rouge Warrior. No email for me yet. I hope it stays that way because I don't want my games disappearing.
