In recent days, the well-known G2A portal has been embroiled in controversy over accusations of damaging indie studios with the sale of gambling keys through unofficial channels. To improve its image, the platform has just announced that it will offer videogame developers the possibility of blocking passwords to avoid codes distributed among the press, to carry out analyzes, or as gifts to users that can be resold in this store.
The developers will have to confirm their identity in G2A to access two new sections: Review Keys, which is intended for block codes offered to the press, and Giveaways, which looks for the same with the keys offered in contests. All they have to do is add the codes they do not want to be offered for sale on these two pages, and the platform will block them immediately.
” We have made our own calculations and the development of such a solution will take a long time and will be expensive. We’ll cover the costs ” report from G2A, ” but we just need to know that you, the developers, are going to use the system. That’s why we ask you to register. If at least 100 is registered before August 15, to guarantee transparency, the list will be published and we will start working on this tool ”
