Found these today. It's cheaper to get both of these seperately than the bundle currently on the Xbox Marketplace. 

 

Forza Horizon 2 ($28.83) - http://www.cdkeys.co...izon-2-xbox-one

 

Forza 5 ($21.60) - http://www.cdkeys.co...port-5-xbox-one

 

I have seen others post about this site and thought I'd give them a try. They are legit. I just purchased Horizon 2 and can confirm the code worked.

 

 

Edit: Price change on Forza Horizon 2 from $22 to $28.83.

Thanks for the post.

 

I'm still waiting on buying Forza 5.  They come out with sequels non stop and i'm still waiting for Forza 5  to hit 9.99.

Can get a physical copy of Forza 5 for less than $15 on Amazon used.

Not bad for the FH2 if you missed the $18 Gamefly sale a few weeks ago

I would skip 5 and just go with Horizon 2 or 6 IMO. 5 is not a great game with the forcing microtransactions down your throat like it's an old Tiger Woods game.

Haha yeah I don't blame you. Forza 5 is a great game but it's been out since the release of the Xbone. It'll eventually go to $9.99.

Best to skip Forza 5. It's got half the content of Forza 4, same when compared to Forza 6. Forza 6 at $40 is a better deal than Forza 5 at $10, IMO. Twice as many cars, about twice as many tracks, IndyCar, rain/night racing, improved (sort of) Drivatars. It's just a lot more and a lot better.

I never felt that to be the case. The lack of content is what made it so disappointing.

At this point, it's probably not far from a GWG offering.

Totally agree. Amazing how many people will deal with shady sites like this just to get a good deal. Gray market seller that buys keys in cheap regions to resell, and also obtains keys bought with stolen CCs or money laundering.

I asked Motoki to send me a link to his "this is why CDKeys, G2A, etc. are super shitty" post(s), though no reply from him yet.  Do you have a link to it somewhere, so we can show people the shittiness that is CDKeys, etc?

So we're dealing in corporate politics? I paid and I got my code. End of relationship. Good deal, very fast. Oh and FH2 was 10th anniversary, so even better.

No, we're dealing with ETHICS, which apparently is something you don't care about.  As long as you get your key, who cares right?

Here is a link to Motoki's post:

https://www.cheapass.../#entry13012546

And here is the content of the post:

If people want to buy from a shady ass site then buy from a shady ass site, but don't be naive.

Russian keys are most certainly not always region locked. I don't know who told you that or if you just made that assumption but it's completely untrue. It varies depending on the publisher. Square by the way tends not to.

If you don't believe me you are welcome to check the Steam database

https://steamdb.info/

Now as for why the site is shady, well let's see. It's a well known grey market key seller. The name even implies ripping open retail boxes (which for PC games have gone the way of the dodo in North America but are still common in Europe) and fishing out codes inside which were obviously not meant for retail and not to be sold as just a key over the internet. Sometimes these sites will even send you a scan of a paper insert with a key.

They are not an authorized retailer for any of the games the sell. Don't believe? Write the publisher and ask them. Write CDkeys and ask them for their source. If you buy from Amazon or Gamersgate or some other similar site who are well known to be authorized retailers who have direct contracts with publishers they will tell you their source of keys is directly from the publisher themselves. CDkeys cannot do the same.

As for publishers keeping track of keys it's not always that simple. They don't have a GPS on them. But there have been instances of known stolen keys in mass amounts being sold through grey market sellers. Far Cry 4 being one, Sniper Elite 3 being another.

To clarify, one of our PC retail distributors informed us that some of their allotted Steam keys were stolen. We believe these keys were then resold to multiple companies, with no payments going to either Valve or the retail distributor.

Steam were immediately informed and have now revoked that set of keys.

To clarify, aside from Steam itself, digital keys for Sniper Elite 3 can be bought from the below list of licensed partners. We can confirm that we have not revoked any keys sent to these companies, nor have they reported any problems to us. This is the full list of companies that get their keys direct from us for digital sale – we do not sell to anyone else.

I bought my key from CDKeys with no idea they were in anyway illegitimate.
...

The thing is if something sounds too good to be true there's probably a catch or a reason for that. When Steam and Amazon and Gamersgate etc etc are all selling a new hot AAA game or pre-order for $60 and shadykeysite.com is selling it for $30 something's up. The vast majority of the time it is keys sourced from Russia where games are sold much cheaper and on occasion yes there may even be stolen keys involved. It's happened before.

The majority of the time these keys will probably activate just fine and people will not have problems with it. Obviously these guys would not be in business if most of the time people weren't getting anything for what they paid. If you're okay ethically with don't ask don't tell getting keys from sources that at best are cheating the publisher and at worst might even be stolen (again it has happened before; search news sites for stolen keys) then that's on the individual. But just be aware of the type of site you are buying from, don't make excuses for them or bury your head in the sand and pretend it's the same as buying a key from Amazon.com.

It was offered as one of those free play weekend games once. I remember playing it quite a bit and earning some of the achievements over a 3 day weekend. I think you're right, it'll probably be given away at some point within the next 6-12 months.

Ok so after reading that, you have no proof. What you have there is a bunch of posts from people who have their opinions, NONE of the companies you have listed have said anything about this site. If you have anything other then speculation please post otherwise your opinions are just speculative.

Look buddy, you're talking to a forum full of "CHEAP ASS GAMERS" here. Do I really need to remind you? We're here scoping out deals. Clearly a lot of people here don't care about giving the publisher every dime in their pocket. Also, while my ethics and yours may be differently aligned, that doesn't make either of us right or wrong. Ethics are in fact a grey area depending on your situation and location. For example here in the US there are anti bribery laws when doing business. Head over to China and you'll get looked down at if you don't show up with a "gift." Who in this situation is right? 

 

If a business wants to sell me something and I want to purchase that thing, why should that matter to you? How does this hurt the publisher exactly? If they choose to price their games differently based on region, that's supposed to be ethical on their part? They already received compensation for the key they sold to that particular market. This is like when I walk into a restaurant and they have a "no sharing policy." Are you kidding me? Don't sell me food and then tell me what I can or can't do with it. Why should it matter if someone in one market buys and someone in another plays it?

 

Secondly, there is an indirect benefit here for them. If there's a game I don't care enough about to buy at a higher cost, I just won't purchase it. Now that I've been incentivized by a third party to buy it at a cheaper cost, I will buy. If I enjoy the game enough, it may lead me to buying more products directly from the developer making it in the future. It may build brand loyalty. 

 

And lastly, mind your own business when it comes to these transactions. One thing I really don't appreciate is being told by a stranger on the internet what I should or shouldn't spend my hard earned money on. Don't be that guy.  ;)

 

 

On a side note: I've purchased from CD Keys only twice, and both times it was a 1 year sub for Live. Both times worked great. Got working codes immediately after checking out. I did pay using PayPal though, so do be careful where you enter your CC info.
