GreenMan Gaming Will Now Show Source of Every Key it Sells

Following accusations on reddit that the online games retailer was selling ‘grey market’ games, GreenMan Gaming has announced that it will report the source of every key, plus when delivery of that key should be expected, on its respective page.

GreenMan Gaming posted the following message on its Facebook page:

“You spoke, we listened.

We know you want great games at great prices. In response to your feedback, rolling out from today on the Green Man Gaming store you’ll see our pages now have two new pieces of information:

1/ When you can expect the delivery of a key
2/ The source of that key

We are committed to continually improving our site, so you can expect the very best service and experience from us. Bear with us as we have over 5000 titles to update, but remember that your feedback is always really important to us, and we want to keep helping you make informed decisions when shopping with us. Thanks for your support!”

Though, judging by some of the comments to the above post, GreenMan Gaming is not being quite as transparent as it claims. One irate customer claims that the retailer is using the vague term “Authorised Distributor” as a source for some games.

This is GreenMan Gaming’s listing for Call of Duty: Black Ops III:

While that might be accurate, the lack of detail is hardly as transparent as claimed. As a new initiative, though, it’s possible that GreenMan Gaming is still updating the details of its games library.
