[dotTech Giveaway] 5 free copies of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine!

[1]Earlier this week dotTech reviewed Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine [2]. In the review we promised we would be giving away copies of the game for free. Well here we are. Thanks to IntKeys [3], a Swiss-based online retailer of video games that sells games at highly discounted prices, dotTech has five copies of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine to give away for free!

Before I go into the details of this giveaway, since IntKeys is the sponsor for this particular giveaway it is only fair we give them a little plug. As already mentioned, IntKeys is a Switzerland-based company that sells computer video games online at highly discounted prices, e.g. they are selling Rage for $34.99 [regular price is $59.99]. You may be wondering how they do this. It works like this. First and foremost you purchase legitimate copies of games from them, but they only provide you with the relevant CD key for the game as opposed to shipping you the game box and actual CD. This cuts down on costs. Secondly, and more importantly, IntKeys utilizes the different region prices to their advantage. You may or may not know this, but different regions in the world have different pricing for games. For example, a game in the USA may cost $59.99 but the exact same game may cost $29.99 in Russia. Both are legitimate copies; the different prices result from price discrimination practiced by game producers to earn higher profits. IntKeys buys games from regions in which they cost less and sells them at a discounted price online. So, sticking with the example we already have, IntKeys may buy the game from Russia for $29.99 then sell it online for $39.99. They earn $10 on the sale and customers save $20 off retail price. A win-win, no? Visit IntKeys.com [3] if you are interested to learn more. If you end up purchasing, be sure to use the coupon code a45dottech4 for an additional 5% off.
