This way you're not stuck holding the (overhead) bag and the CCs have more options and know a fixed system is in place. The only downside I see to it is some may not want to reveal personal information about themselves to receive gift cards.


Isn't that effectively the same as cashing out via paypal, which is already an option?

It's not the same thing because you don't have to report and pay taxes on gift cards. *cough* Err I mean I was addressing the overhead and fluctuating game cost issue brought up by the author of the article. Edited by Shadohz

It could but we're talking about games that cost a maximum of $60 (and Dark0ne is probably trying to get them on sale so it's probably less per key) as opposed to software that is either already open-source/free, or expensive into the hundred or even thousand dollar range.

Ol' Dark0ne is making the hard calls again. I'm glad we have you as our fearless leader. You're doing a good job; so much better than any other host for ANY other site or game. EA and Bethesda should take notes from you on how to treat their people. You maintain a happy and growing community by doing what's right and good for the gamers, not just what fills your pocket. Please don't ever change. Thank you.

I feel like a prick just withdrawing all the money but it goes towards costs of living while studying. Once I have a real job, I'll start donating my points. <3


I'm on the same page, so don't feel bad. Also *waves* hey Enai.

I would probably imagine it being more like spending points for a month's subscription.
