Does Steam support instant gaming?
Hey. I'm interested in purchasing Just Cause 3 from Instant Gaming (https://www.♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.com/en/). However, I'm a little hesitant. I'm not worried about Instant Gaming, but whether steam is O.K. with it. I hear that Instant Gaming buys from steam, but I know Steam is harsh about stuff they don't like (I.E. shutting down an account because of illegal games. I wan't to make sure that Steam won't shut down my account if I get a game from here.

for some reason, Steam blocked the link. Just look it up.

obviously since it's hearted out, that should tell you it's a grey market site, therefore not endorsed or allowed.

Instant Gaming is not a authorized Steam Key reseller, as already shown here by the auto censor.
Its unknown from where they get the keys they sell , they dont have any contracts with the publishers like authorized resellers.

If you want to stay legit you can use this site: www.isthereanydeal.com

All shops listed there are legit Steam key resellers who get their keys directly from the publisher/developer.

If that site was buying their keys from Steam, then they wouldn't be selling the game for less than what Steam sells it for. Steam doesn't sell keys to retailers/vendors, so the only way for that site to get "keys" from Steam is actually only through gifting to you, cause they would have to do what any regular customer of Steam does.

Actual keys only come from the publishers/developers, they distribute out the keys to their authorized dealers/distributors.

The grey market, which is what your linked (heart) site is a part of, commonly steal keys from boxes, use credit card fraud, or use identity theft to create credit card accounts to obtain keys.

If the publisher/developer determines your key was using one of those methods, or even if the vendor happen to get keys through back channels not approved by the publisher/developer, then the Publisher/developer can have your game revoked and you will see it gone from your library.


Simply put, any good moral person, with good ethics, would not use any grey market site at all.

Stick to www.isthereanydeal.com to find legitimate deals from legitimate retailers.

Because it's not a legit site, so... probably want to look at Eisberg's link.

it isn't an auto censor, They manually put links/words into the link filter.

Thanks! I saw that Games Rocket was a official re-seller. I'm thinking I'll just go with that.

Well, it's not. It is probably late, but I need too tell you. If you pay with PayPal sometimes (80%) they will ask you to Upload your ID to "verify your identity", which no one should do. And there is a 1 in 3 chance that your key won't work. So, I would prefer buying games or DLCs through Steam. It may be more expensive, but you are safe that way.
