Ah thanks. It didn't occur to me they'd have that warning on the store page. They're doing it wrong... They're supposed to run out of keys then ignore the complaints....

That does raise the question that if Steam is waiting on more keys, and Microsoft is waiting on more keys... who is generating those keys? Santa's Elves?

My guess is that Valve is waiting on Microsoft, and Microsoft is waiting on someone from their own department to generate them and put them in the system, and send em over.

It's Frank in the keys department. He was on vacation this week. He'll be back Monday though.

Yes. And they better get working on it or that guy that beats orphans with SlimJims is going to start beating elves with them instead.

Would Steam Keys and the keys Steam is waiting on be the same thing?

I know sometimes the Steam Activation key and the game key you get on steam are two different things aren't they? Because haven't people gotten a game on Steam but not been able to play it because Steam is waiting for activation keys. Does that make any sense?

Tony,

any plans for a Ghost Recon: Future Soldier deal in the near future?

Steam keys would be nice.

Thanks!

They are 2 seperate types of keys. One is the key you activate on steam to get a game which you bought somewhere else. You never get this key if you buy from steam directly, because its already on your steam account.
The other is the key you get from the "CD Key" button in your library once the game is activated on steam, which is usually used to access the game because of a 3rd party DRM such as securom or GFWL.

I understand you certainly could be (probably?) right. I might be conflating steam keys and the "CD keys" that steam needs. Though I would image that MS would want to have enough "CD keys" before handing Tony steam keys (and notably since both key shortages are for the DLC). It's possible MS is waiting on the CD keys before making steam keys available to Amazon.

In for XCOM and Syndicate today. I'll be picking up that Microsoft bundle in a few days even though I own two of the games from it already. Is it one Steam code for all five games or five individual Steam codes?

You had to purchase something from Amazon PCDD from 11/16-ish to 12/31.

Someone just asked that like 4 hours ago

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

Look on the dlc items store page,
http://store.steampo...?snr=1_5_9__405

there's a notice that says they are running low on keys, just thought it was odd that Tony is waiting on keys as well as steam.

I know I'd be fine with buying the Fable bundle even if the keys weren't actually added for a few days...

Conflicted about the Fable deal. I usually don't buy anything with Securom (regardless of the restrictions), but 5$ is a pretty great deal.
