Hey all, I'm trying to find the cheapest place to buy BFBC2 online as a digital download. The retail version costs about $100nz which I really don't want to pay that much for (I'm a student, I want to live cheap). On Steam it is about the same price around $100nz so that's out of the question. I've checked on direct2drive but its not available outside the US and Canada (likewise for the their UK site).

Of the websites i've found so far Gamersgate has the lowest price of £29.95 which is about $65nz. Am I safe to purchase it from them? It says that it is the 'UK' version of BFBC2, does anyone know if its restricted to only the UK? I couldn't find anything saying it was but I've never purchased from them before, so I'm just hoping someone else has had a previous experience with them.

Or does anyone else know of any place cheaper than gamersgate? Please let me know!

Maybe in the USA, over here in New Zealand its $69.99 USD on Steam which is equal to $100nz, like I said.

Dammit guys read the opening post. I think gamersgate is safe, but I think you need a client for it, but I haven't tried it before so don't take my word.

the cheapest place was the ea store a few weekes ago when they had that $10 of sale plus the $20 coupon got it for only $20 doubt you will see it that low again for at least a few months.

Yes ofcourse gamersgate is safe (it's the 3.biggest dd site) and is run by Paradox.

Gamersgate doesn't have a client, kind of like Direct2Drive but alot more easy and hassle free.

There was a coupon code for $20 for the EA store, so it would be $30 from there if it still works.

I bought the game from gamersgate and had no problems. Fast DL speed and no DRM.

Selling game keys is illegal and there was a report about that website selling stolen keys.
