Welcome to Playgames!
We are part of a network that is passionate about games and gaming! Everyone in our small family of gamers lives and breathes the gaming universe, and several of us have been involved from the start, all the way back to the Commodore 64. We have a total of more than 50 years of experience in the games industry, and have worn out controllers and mice on almost all platforms and consoles.
What are we?
We offer digital distribution of product keys (CD Keys) for PC and a select few consoles, in a format where everyone can play along. Stop worrying about physical products and delivery delays. Everything is delivered instantly and digitally, within minutes of your order being completed.
We provide digital console and PC games for you 24/7 365, quickly and professionally. We have the latest games and lots of special offers, so fear not! We are here to satisfy your digital hunger.
Do we sell physical products?
No, we only focus on digital products. But that only makes it all much easier for you! And, hey, there's no waiting around for the mail man!
Can I buy games for consoles, such as the PS4 and Xbox One?
We have a very limited selection of Xbox One titles, and continue to work on adding PS4 products to our selection.
Is this legal?
Absolutely! We are an official distributor for several of the different publishers, and get our products directly from them. So, you can shop calmly and safely, knowing that your product is legally acquired.
We have support on all weekdays, weekends and holidays. We answer all e-mails within a short time; however, there may be up to 24 hours of waiting during busy periods.
Do you need a subscription to become a member?
No, not at all! It's absolutely free to create an account at Playgames.
Can I give my product code to a friend?
Yes! The product is not tied to you in any way. You receive a product key - also called a CD key - from us, and it’s up to you how you use it.
Is there an expiration date on the products?
No. It is completely up to you whether you want to activate your code right away, give it as a gift for Christmas, or bury it in a time capsule to be opened 25 years from now.
