One such website that has caught the attention of gamers is But the pressing question remains: is legitimate?

Understanding CD Key Websites

Before diving into specifically, it’s essential to understand the nature of websites that offer game CD keys.

  1. Official vs. Gray Market: Some websites are official resellers, partnered with game developers or publishers to sell their games. Others are gray market sites, which means they might be selling keys acquired through less official means. is a official reseller, it started as in 2007 selling digital games only in Russia, but has not expanded internationally with .com domain and a brand new website.
  2. Price Variance: Many gamers are drawn to CD key websites because of the significant discounts they offer. However, a price that seems too good to be true can sometimes be an indicator of a less legitimate source.
  3. Regional Restrictions: Some keys might be region-locked, meaning they can only be activated in specific parts of the world. Buyers should always check for any regional restrictions before making a purchase.

What About

When evaluating the legitimacy of, consider the following:

  1. Reputation: Online reviews, forum discussions, and feedback from the gaming community can offer insights into previous buyers’ experiences. Look for patterns in feedback – if multiple users report issues with invalid keys or poor customer service, it might be a red flag.

Yes, is legit, but..

I have used Yuplay purchasing plenty of video games for Steam from them before and I always received the game code immediately. Only thing I would advise is to check if the game store page doesn’t have any region locks listed, as there can be EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), US (United States) or other locks on some games, so be sure you’re purchasing a game for your region.

Yuplay doesn’t have any discount codes or coupons right now, but the prices are quite good as they are. If we find any coupon, we will post it here.
