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.


I redeemed 4 keys, got the email, and still have the games on the shelf.

I redeemed all but two of the Bethesda games, received the email, received the Paypal refund, and the games are still on my shelf. Not sure how this is going to play out, but all signs point to my steam account losing some games soon.

Sad it seems like they wont honor the BL2 error. I wonder what will happen to the first glitch at 75% off. I'd assume that one people actually were able to get keys for it.

If they start removing steam games its going to be a mess in the steam trading thread.

They can force a refund?? its like, you buy a TV, and 4 days after they come to your house, throw money in your face and take away the tv..???

Sounds like it's best to stick to normal sales and not price glitch we're losing tons of money and our website is crashing because so many people are trying to exploit the glitch in our system sales. I dunno, I didn't expect them to be able to absorb so many losses so something was bound to happen.

Hopefully they handle it in the best way possible and don't revoke already used keys, but we'll see.

Except that none of these items exist in a physical form.

I wonder if any laws regarding advertised prices apply online to digital items.

Also are you supposed to get a key with Future Soldier? I can download the exe but there's no key. Guess this might fall into the BL2, Bethesda clusterf*ck as well.

Why wouldn't you? Just because they had a major screw up and won't do something that's obviously too heavy a hit? The fact that they accepted the Bethesda one says plenty on the character of those in charge. Sure they ran out but it was impossible to not. This situation is not obvious and much more damaging to them, so if they choose to just not accept payment that should be enough. Nothing lost, nothing gained, besides a couple thousand people staying up late tonight too.

@DarkZero why say you are going to honor it and give keys in January and now say you won't and issue everyone refunds. What about those who have gifted away copies of games?

No notices about the BL2 4-pack, no keys, game is still on shelf. The least they could do is hurry up with my refund.

But they don't accept the bethsda one, that's the problem, the refund i got is for the bethsda pack, i dont even got that borderlands 2 pack.
I understand that it was a mistake, same as origin a few months ago, but it's not our problem, they sold a product, we buy it, they grab our money.

I just managed to complete one of two pending orders from this morning. The first one I placed was cancelled but the second one was still pending. I fully expect to have that order cancelled and get refunded by the end of the day though. That's fine. I understand completely.

Besides, I already own Borderlands 2. I was only buying to resell at an obscene profit. But with all the copies that may end up floating around out there, it might not end up being worth the effort. It'd be different if I didn't already own B2 and I was just hoping to sell my extra copies for enough so I got mine for free. As it is though, I'm not sure if I really care. If they cancel it, they cancel it.

As for the Bethesda pack(s). I haven't revived any email yet. Though I managed to get all my keys for everything except Rage. I don't know if that makes it less likely or not that I get cancelled. Hopefully I'm OK though. Because if they start revoking keys, I'm gonna have to start refunding some people. :(

Yeah same here. And I will do it if it comes down to that (for the record have not getting an email or refund and the games are still in my GG account) but I'm betting there's some douches out there who won't.

I guess I'd better get around to playing Dishonored now just in case it goes *POOF*.

Knowing how slow Valve can be to get around to doing things or replying I don't know that I'll feel like I'm completely in the clear for some time.

Fun fact: I've bought two Prototype packs from Amazon when they were $7.5 for me and my friend, activated them without any problem. Apparently the purchases were considered as fraund since I logged with different ip from other country (funny isp), bought 2 of the same thing in 5 mins, took codes and immediately logged out.
I've received e-mail about canceling my orders and I provided refund. I thought it's even better deal, because I still had the games on my steam account. Steam deactivated them after 5-6 days. I was quite impressed.


Back to the topic, I've redeemed keys only for one copy of Beth pack, got purchase marked as completed during first 4-5h of "flash sale", haven't received any e-mail from GG about refund so far.

I just downloaded Dishonored. Gonna spend the better part of the day playing that. If they revoke keys, hopefully they hold off long enough for me to complete the game.

Something really weird is happening in my library. I should have 8 copies of Borderlands 2 total. Next to the game it says (7) and when I click on it, only codes for 3, 4, 5 and 10 show up. None of the others have a show serial button and I already gifted myself the ones I could. That and there shouldn't even be 10 anyways. I already redeemed one for myself just in case, but I don't know if I should sell/trade any keys in case they revoke them later on.

Dishonored is not a very long game and when it really gets going you can beat the game pretty fast. I will do the same thing when i get home... with skyrim.... I can beat that in a few hours right? :rofl:

Backlog? What backlog?
