Recommended Posts

Just brought from GMG, how does it work with the documentary? Will i have to wait for the game release email before i get the documentary?

Looking at picking up my first FM in a good few years but I've become a bit out of the loop with platforms like Steam.

If I buy from GMG at what seems the best price, how do I then load it through Steam? Will I have to do something to download through Steam or will I be downloading from GMG?

Similar to the person who asked about Region Locking, if I order from GMG using my UK credit card, will I be able to play in Canada where I now live (and don't yet have a CC or Visa Debit)? Would be major miffed to buy the game and have Steam tell me I can't play it in my region!

Appreciate any feedback, thanks :)

GMG will send you a product code via email, of which you then activate through steam and then download through there

note: because you seem a little confused, this is about as easy as I can make it

1) boot up steam (as per normal)

2) navigate to the highlighted red box and click on it - that's my library, your library may look different

3) go through those menus, and then enter the product key (the same one you were sent from GMG)

4) accept and install

5) play the game that you just purchased

generally, the region lock for a country like that will be minimal, it's just if you're in a less economically-developed area (I mean no offense to any residents of those countries listed)

FM15 region locks

you only have to be wary if you buy from somewhere that isn't (say the UK) and then try to activate in a region-specific place like Brazil

Anyone heard anything from greenmangaming yet? I sent a message regarding keys but no reply

If the beta is going to drop towards the end of the week, you'll get a key before then. There's no benefit to having a key anything before then, and I've never had trouble with GMG sending it late. There's no issue.

Hello. Just got email from sortitoutsi.net that my order made from their site, is going to be refunded. So where I could find the best price FM16 with BETA access?

Does anybody know or have experience wether the price will drop after the beta is released?

£35, or even with the code £28 is a bit pricey, and I'm not in a hurry as I'm quite busy until late November (prefer not to play by then actually, haha!).

Any thoughts?

Maybe you can wait a few more weeks till Dec as Steam normally have Christmas sale.

Thanks mate.

Just saw there's a nice one for less than £25 with a coupon, on Fun stock digital.

I think I'll get it, although last year was at least 20% cheaper on the RRP, I think with a coupon it was around £20.

So I can buy and use the serial from GMG even though I live in Melbourne, Australia?

Also do GMG send the serial numbers immediately? Or is it next week/week after for the beta code?

I was going to buy direct from Steam but if I can get a better price then why not :-)

Based on past years, they only send out the code a day or two before the beta release.

Just looking to pre-order FM16 now.

Anyone with valid code for discount with GMG, as codes posted previously have now expired.

Cheers

Wish GMG would hurry up with the keys

There's no reason for them to. It could arrive when you ordered, or 2 mins before beta goes live, result will be the same

They always release it a few days prior to the beta going live. Every single year they've done that.

I've bought the last 4 FM's from GMG and they always sent the key in time. Don't worry and wait patiently.

Pretty sure they will have some info(but can't reveal to customers) when the beta is going live. They can't depend on luck all the time. 1 time could be lucky but 3-4 times?

also gmg is not on the official retailer list, so they will surely not get any info direct from si/sega

Well, if you are so worried about not getting the beta from GMG, then just buy directly from steam. Problem solved.

I am sure it was the same with GmG a couple of years ago, the beta got released and within an hour or 2 they had sent out the keys.

Anyone bought from GK4A and got the key yet? Or information on when the key will be sent? I mean I just bought the game 35 minutes ago so I guess I'll have to wait some hours but do you think I will have it tonight?

So you pre-order a digital copy and they still can't send it out to you on time. Think I'll be avoiding them in future! Going out later which sucks badly enough, they better at least have it available before I leave so it can be downloading...

I've always just went with steam. You get the Beta immediately as well as the full game. It is nice saving a few bucks by purchasing from a 3rd party, but worth giving that up and going with steam.

Can someone just tell me what is the cheapest site that comes with the beta. Thanks

It was GK4A before but look at: http://www.allkeyshop.com/blog/buy-football-manager-2016-cd-key-compare-prices/

You should choose one of the Preorder Bonus Editions. So right now the cheapest would be gamingdragons.com

GMG have taken Fm16 out of stock.

They did that before also, I think it was just until they had sent out the first batch of keys and then they made it available again.
