Reaktionerne ovenpå Gearbox Software (Publishing) samarbejde med G2A omkring Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition har været mange. Nu stiller Gearbox en række krav for et fortsat samarbejde med G2A.

Vi kunne i går fortælle, at Gearbox samarbejde med G2A omkring Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition bestemt ikke var gået ubemærket hen. Efter en den store kritik, har Gearbox Publishing stillet fire krav (via Waypoint), hvoraf det første skal kunne efterleves indenfor 30 dage. Hvis ikke det sker, vil Gearbox afvikle deres fælles udgivelsesaftale.

  • Within 30 days, G2A Shield (aka, customer fraud protection) is made free instead of a separate paid subscription service within terms offered by other major marketplaces. All customers who spend money deserve fraud protection from a storefront. To that end, all existing G2A Shield customers are notified by April 14th that fraud protection services are now free and they will no longer be charged for this.
  • Within 90 days, G2A will open up a web service or API to certified developers and publishers to search for and flag for immediate removal, keys that are fraudulent. This access will be free of charge and will not require payment by the content holders.
  • G2A makes a public commitment to this: Within 60 days implement throttling for non-certified developers and publishers at the title, userid, and account payable levels for a fraud flagging process. This is to protect content providers from having large quantities of stolen goods flipped on G2A before they can be flagged.
  • G2A makes a public commitment to this: Within 30 days, G2A restructures its payment system so that customers who wish to buy and sell legitimate keys are given a clear, simple fee-structure that is easy to understand and contains no hidden or obfuscated charges. Join the ranks of other major marketplaces.

Hele sagen virker dog noget amatøragtig. Vi kan næppe tro på, at Gearbox ikke havde kunne forudse de negative reaktioner. I stedet for at stille en række krav, som G2A formodentlig kan eller vil efterleve, burde de havde fundet sig en lidt mindre kontroversiel partner til Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition.
