ZERO STARS 0/5 .Complete GARBAGE. SCAM. These people are THIEVES. TRASH. TOTAL BOGUS.If company was based in US/UK/CANADA etc these crooks would be PROSECUTED. Take your money and business else where. Play-sc.com will also provide you with a fake receipt or bill of sale which has no validity to it whatsoever. I'm sure these scam artists write fake reviews to entice shoppers. DON'T BE GULLIBLE Dont think Play-SC.com is legitimate for a second. Play-SC does not deliver INSTANTLY or AT ALL. Do not try to save money and buy from a sketchy website because the headache wont be worth it. I will be spending my time tomorrow notifying PayPal for fraudulent and deceitful business conduct and will be obviously be seeking financial reimbursement. ***THESE CLOWNS WOULD BE PROSECUTED IF IN A FIRST WORLD OR DEVELOPED COUNTRY***

Ordered 3 hours ago, and still no key. Have been refreshing order invoice every 5 minutes from the moment the money left my account. (INSTANTLY) A shame the delivery method isn't quite as INSTANT as their extraction methods for my money..... Had planned to spend this 3 hours playing....

I chose to use play-sc to download a game and used paypal to process my payment. The code never arrived and after some investigation I found that my order had been queued. I then sent two emails to play-sc and also tried calling them on their listed number (using appropriate international codes); the emails were not responded to and the line dropped immediately every time I tried to call (6 times). This isnt an immediate service so now I have my one day off with a game I paid for but cant play. Wouldnt recommend if you are looking for something immediate.

Buyer Beware! This site is violating Steam's policy and they have no quams about ripping you off

This company is a total scam. they say that they are selling games, but what they are actually selling is CODES for you to download the games from Valve-Steam. Of course they don't tell you this anywhere on their page. Then when they complete the transaction and you find out that what you're getting is a code the problem only gets worse. The codes they sell you are NOT VALID TO BE USED IN THE USA. When you ask why your code is rejected by Steam as "not being vald in your country" they give you some instructions to use a VPN in RUSSIA or UKRAINE for you to download your game from Steam as if you were in those countries. When even this doesn't work they want you to give them YOUR CREDENTIALS to your steam account so they can activate the code for you. God knows what they do while in your Steam account. EVEN WHEN YOU BUY THROUGH PAYPAL YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED BECAUSE PAYPAL WILL TELL YOU THEY DON'T PROTECT AGAINST "INTANGIABLE GOODS"... Well Hell if I had known I was buying a CODE instead of an actual GAME I would have taken a pass on it... To be honest, this is even a review on PayPal because I would have gotten more buyer protection if I had bought it through a credit card instead of through PayPal. DON'T BUY FROM THIS VENDOR...YOU ARE ASKING TO BE RIPPED OFF..."

I purchased 12 months Of Xbox live because of the excellent pricing and so said instant delivery, after purchasing it did not come through to email, it went to get checked by anti-fraud which is fair because no one wants fraud, i sent a message which was replied to and i got my code under order history invoices, i was just a little worried as it was not instant, good price and okay delivery. Overall pleased.

I ordered an xbox live gold 12 month membership, and my order got queued by their anti-fraud division, and that's ok! I would prefer they be thorough. I simply sent them an email asking for how long the delay might be, and they promptly informed me what was going on, manually processed my order and I was all set! My code did come up as an xbox 360 gold pass, but as all xbox users know, this doesn't matter as it translates over. Polite, efficient company. No complaints. Remember your code goes to YOUR ACCOUNT with play-sc, not your email. This is plainly explained, but it seems like there is some confusion with some of these reviewers who can't follow directions. Cheers!

I got code on email instantly and game was cheaper than other virtual downloads. And most importantly the code worked. How to download -guides pictures were a bit outdated but with common sense worked through it. Very good place to buy games if you don't necessarily want the physical disc.

Just bought Metal Gear solid V and expected to download it instantly as it is advertised. My order form then says my order is 'Queued'. I then email them to ask what is going on and they say it will be sent to me within 1-2 hours. They did not state this would happen when I bought it, they said I would get the code INSTANTLY!!

My son bought a code for sims4 and the code came through pretty quick, we followed the steps and nothing happened, the site advised to log out of origin and log back in...nothing has happened. I've used the 'contact us' option and have explained the problem and am still waiting for a response. It doesn't fill me with confidence and now my son is left moneyless from his spend.

I Bought Dragon Age: Inquisition + DLC's for a very good price. Initially i had my doubts as the key did not 'arrive' and was 'queued' for at least 24 hrs giving a new meaning to the word 'instant' however i did get it. MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT. I emailed them and they replied telling me my order had been processed, i knew this so asked them when i would get my key. It wasn't until i actually logged in to my account that i saw the key sat waiting for me. So THEY DO NOT EMAIL YOU THE KEY, which means you need to check your account frequently which is annoying to be honest. May i suggest to any company reps reading this that you email out clear instructions to check you account for your key. All in all cheap and cheerful. beats paying double the price! Will be coming back.

I searched on Google shopping for Sims 4 limited edition and followed the link to this sellers website and the cd cover image on the website was correct. once i paid and received my code it was for standard edition. when i raised a Paypal case against them they edited the website and changed the case image to standard version to make me out a liar. luckily i saved the whole web page and saved it to my pc and a screen dump of the google search wait to see if paypal will uphold my case

Accidentally bought two codes for the sims 4 and they refunded one when I asked them to nicely, even though they didn't have to. By law they could've refused because it was my fault but they did refund it. They did it for about £10-£14 cheaper than origin too. Took a few days to go through, but replied to my emails in a nice manner and overall there were no problems. 10/10 would use again. READ THE WEBSITE. They do product KEYS not DISCS. They do have the information on their website.
