The code is GMGAU-3J9MF-MUINW and it's valid for 10 years (at least that's the plan).

That's awesome! I haven't purchased anything from GMG yet, but just for this I'm going to seriously consider buying some games from them, whether they're discounted or not.

These guys make Valve look like a bunch of money grubbing snobs.

I've probably bought more games from GMG in the last 6 months than from anyone else.

Me too. I barely bought anything during the Steam Sale. Amazon and GMG were getting all my money. I love that GMG has pre purchase discounts as well. 10% off is not enough to intice me to buy something, but GMG has several of the Spring's top games 25% off. I already got DMC and am planning on getting Crysis 3 and BioShock Infinite from there.

My paypal AND my visa won't process with GMG... missed quite a few deals because of this

They were already the cheapest store for us to use, but this just seals their position. I'm going to be spending a lot more money than I'd planned now that I'm getting a better discount. :p

That is awesome, nice to stick it to the evil greedy publishers.

GMG is my favourite place to buy games, they always have money off all the time. I go there before I go anywhere else

Might want to check with your bank about that. I use a Visa debit card on GMG, and my bank likes to take issue with it. Maybe because GMG is based in London, but also because my bank at first thought it was some kind of gambling site (probably because of greenmangaming). Also, GMG charges me an extra fee (I'm assuming it's because of the international purchase), but it's hardly anything. About 1%, it seems. 8 cents for every $9.99 I spend.

GMG has always been an awesome place to buy games especially for Aussies. This new policy is just icing on the cake :)

Nice move by GMG - good to see a company taking action against publishers enforcing unfair pricing for different regions - hopefully just a first step until we can see more universal prices around the world for all when we are all buying the same digital item.

lol what the hell, it's like they agree to raise the price coz publishers set regional prices but then give permanent discounts. Such a weird way to get around it.

Congrats to those down under! Never understood why DIGITAL goods would have to be marked up there in the first place...

I'd buy games from GMG, but it has that authentication system that VISA has, and I have used up all my password attempts. All I have to do is call VISA, its just I'm lazy.

u could just log in through paypal. and link your card to paypal... that's what i do. i prefer just give my credit card info to one company then 50. I am starting to see some websites even use a amazon payment. which i trust amazon anyday over paypal so i hope they spread

valve has always looked like a bunch of money grubbing snobs to me because in my country pc games are damn cheap
consider this - far cry 3 costs around $18 and this is the price at the time of release
