Anyone have experience with Gamestop's download service? What if our PC crashes and we have to re-format?

Steam seems to be the best system for digital downloads at the moment....just curious how Gamestop's works if anyone has prior experience.

Thanks!

Is anyone having trouble purchasing the digital copy? I've tried one card twice, and one other card, but I keep getting an error message. My cards are being charged, but no game.

You can buy "insurance" that will let you download it again if something happens. The insurance is $3.95 though...lol.

Anyway, I already have The Show 10 but for $3, what the heck.

I saw someone else mention that you had 3 activations. It sounds as if the game can be installed on 3 'different' PCs or ....perhaps 3 different installations of Windows (if you crash and have to reformat 2 times???)

Wonder if Steam will match this.

According to the install files one should be able to separate them and put onto 2 single layer dvds. I'll be doing that when I'm done dling it.

whookid, steam won't match it. Not unless 2k is going to run this price on every service. But the way gamestop was advertising it it's probably gamestop only.

Even so...I'm curious what their defintion of 'activation' means. You can always save the download files, but if you have to activate the install of the game online everytime you install it, 3 times might be the max (this is something they need to clean up with digital downloading in general)

I just read the email. To me it sounds like you have 3 concurrent installs/activations. Could be 3 times max completely, however for 2.99 I'm willing to let it go. I hardly buy DD elsewhere from steam, so it's usually only on good deals.

whookid, you'll be able to backup on one dual layer, or break up the files into two single layers.

Will paypal $4 for someone to gift it to me. I don't have enough on my debit card to buy it and still have an emergency buffer, and the digital dl service doesn't accept Paypal. :(

Wow, I just bought it and got a lot of warnings from ESET Smart Security about potential trymedia adware threats. They're the ones selling the game for gamestop. The run file is signed by real networks, not surprising. Just real networks under a different name. Real is well known for unwanted adware.:bomb:

"This game has 3 licenses available. This means you may install the game on other computers and activate it up to 3 times."

I read that as on the 4th time you install this, your copy will not activate ... as opposed to max 3 concurrent installs.

Well I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I just had my girlfriend try her card with her own address and she also got an error message. I sent their tech support an e-mail about it, but I doubt I'll get a worthy response.

Ha! You think your internet sucks, I'm 2% done and still need 13 hours 45 minutes to finish. :cold: 1.5 mb at most, stupid ATT and their old ass network.

I remember having 500kb down and thinking that was fast, and actually it was fast. Because that was when our cable company first got into internet and not too many in town had it. Also, for a few years they ran the internet no one got charged for it. We had free broadband for a few years. Maybe a trial run? idk, anyway I now feel humbled.

I take it that's all there is in your area too? I mean I live in ND, which is pretty barren. In our town we actually have two different tv/internet places. They're local too, so they compete which gives us better service.

i'm also getting the credit card error message. I just checked my bank account and i now have a few $2.99 charges in pending status. Hopefully this gets cleared up automatically and i can get my download started.

ATT who leases to other providers here refuses to fix or improve the systems here.
So you can only get up to 6 mb download if your like 500 feet from their main CO.
It's crap but what can you do.
