Splinter Cell 'sale' goes 'viral' on Steam, and they run out of 'keys', leaving lots of bought copies totally useless!
The Splinter Cell series for PC went on sale this weekend on Steam. Every game was discounted at 75% off, including Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the most recent game which Kirk Hamilton called in his review a sort of “greatest hits” collection borrowing the most successful parts from each previous game.
It happens now and then, but normally Valve stops sales, but this time the Steam community is flooding the network with complains that Splinter Cell sale was so popular, alot of people ended up with a pile of digital bits and bytes on their HDD that was worthless, and credit card charge for it, and no key incoming any time soon to turn their purchase into playable enjoyment on their PC Gaming Rigs.
So what do you think will be solution to this, and how will Steam prevent future issues like this, if 'sale' goes digitally viral?
