Diehard GameFAN: Purchasing Steamworks Without Steam: A Cautionary Tale

DHGF: The digital revolution is ongoing and clearly the brick and mortar stores are more than lagging behind. If you’re going to include digital versions of games to pre-order or purchase, make it as easy to get as the service we’re eventually going to be using it through. While I’m singling out GameStop here, I’m sure that most of the other stores that handle digital have some archaic way of getting you a Steam code as well which make just as much sense as this, which isn’t much. I can live with getting a code I can’t put in or activate or even receive until release day. But tell us that in your documentation. I shouldn’t have to find this out through forum posts on other websites that date back a number of years. On top of that, if I’m not using your proprietary app to play the game then having me jump through the hoops of installing it just to get me the code is an extra pointless step I don’t need. (GameStop, PC, Star Trek, Steam)
