Good to know you aren't trying to get the last word or anything. Hey, if you're really that bored, maybe you could practice using punctuation again. Get back into the habit, perhaps? It would make your posts more legible.

It most likely has something to do with the fact that Zenimax bought the rights to Prey. In that case 2K is unable to provide any more keys to a game it no longer owns.

Ahh, that explains the delay. I wonder if Zenimax will even bother generating new keys. If they don't, that's a shame. Prey was a good game and more people should try it.

its funny watching you squirm for the last word.

I wonder if it has something to do with 3D Realms closing down, or 2K's lawsuit against 3D Realms. Maybe 2K isn't willing to provide more keys if it will help fund 3D Realms' defense.

Yeah, there are many possible reasons why Prey was pulled from Steam. That's what I was pondering when PC Warrior went aggro. Surely it can't take that long for 2K to generate new CD-keys. Do they even still maintain the authentication server for Prey? I suspect the multiplayer community is non-existent so there must be little reason to bother with authentication.

The Prey CD key thing is interesting, and sure looks like it's more complicated than just running out of keys. When Steam ran out of Stalker keys they just put up a witty message and allowed continued ordering with the caveat that you would have to wait for new keys before playing. But with Prey the store page is still showing a message that seems doubtful about whether they'll ever get keys and start selling it again, even at regular price. It can't just be that they were unable to contact the publishers for more keys before the sale ended, or that the publishers are annoyed at Steam -- they're the same publishers who had to be contacted to agree to the Bioshock sale.

I wonder if it has something to do with 3D Realms closing down, or 2K's lawsuit against 3D Realms. Maybe 2K isn't willing to provide more keys if it will help fund 3D Realms' defense .

guess how many games with cdkeys i can name? thousands

Thousands? Really? That would probably take a while. I don't know about thousands but I could certainly list quite a few games that don't have CD-keys. In any case, none of this changes the fact that not all games have CD-keys, nor does it change the fact that I last installed Prey three years ago. How was I supposed to know that Steam stopped selling Prey because they ran out of keys? It was an innocuous question yet you took the opportunity to flame me for no apparent reason. But hey, if "owning" me makes you go back to using punctuation again, feel free to continue.

please try to lie less in your shitty posts and then ill work on my punctuation retard.

Hah, so now I'm lying. I made a mistake and owned up to it. You still aren't improving on your punctuation, however. In any case, 3 of the 4 examples I provided are still valid so my point still stands.

Different strokes for different folks. Bitching about what's "not" on sale is pretty juvenile. Considering last year it was just sale prices and no special daily deals at all.

Grabbed Burnout Paradise yesterday, Dead Space the day before that. Zombie Driver and Battlefield 2, Clear Sky and a few others in the days before. There is still almost a week to go, not to mention they started the sale early this year.

Maybe quit being self entitled children and enjoy what is on sale instead of bitching about what isn't?

It's like watching a troller dredge up the muck at the bottom of a river. I'm hoping they'll still pull up a nugget or two.

Or maybe Jimmy Hoffa.

Tuesdays Steam sales are live, and they're getting worse by the day.

Right, right, because all shooters use CD-keys. Oh wait, no they don't. A recent example is Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Or FEAR 2. If you want to go old school, I can include Deus Ex and System Shock 2. Troll harder please. Please try to at least use proper punctuation as well. Your writing quality has deteriorated as of late.

Hmm, really? Whoops. Now that I check my case, I see one. My bad. Weird, it never asked for it when I played the pirated version. Ah well, my point still stands since the other games I mentioned don't have keys. Not all games have CD-keys. This was the case before 2006, in 2006 and it's still the case today.
