Looks dodgy to me....especially as all the boxed games for xbox360 and PS3 are out of stock so in other words they currently only supply PC download keys which easily could be fake.

I wouldn't trust it, as it seems anything that is physical media is out of stock. Besides, I thought selling just a key wasn't legal anyways [at least in the US].

Note how just cause 2 is out of stock for the DVD but the Steam key is in stock considering the game needs to be bound to steam anyway

I have seen threads of this type of so called online key store and they do seem to work !

Peeps get a serial and can even play MP.

There was a big thread about 1 certain store on OCUK's forums and only 1 guy had a key that did not work for MP and he got a new key 2 days later.

Want to ban me also ?

I dont know about that site but I bought BFBC2 from similar site and they really sent me a scan of the box with cd key on it and I just put it in EA download manager and download the game(online works fine), bought Left 4 Dead 1, 2, CoD 6 (they sent me steam keys) the same way and everything works, its simple, fast and cheap

i just bought something from Play-sc.com today
i saw this post because guru3d is usually where i look first for tech and game research

the key worked
an email was sent to be a few hours after i purchased it containing it in a .jpg

now, how they get this key and where they get it is debate-able.
the company is out of Singapore and a lot of illegitimate transactions are known to occur there.

if any one is curious then I'll keep you posted on whether i end up losing my key because they had some kind of high tech key gen going.

yea I saw this page after I sent through my order...if I saw it I would have gotten it from somewhere more legitimate, but they did send the keycode 15 hours after the payment processed, then I downloaded it from EA Origin with no problems. still would go w/ EA directly in the future, felt very uneasy and didn't like waiting so long for something that could have been e-mailed immediately.
