    I have the Street.Fighter.IV-RELOADED release and I was thinking if it is safe to play online through "Games for Windows LIVE" with it. Anyone doing it here?

    No. It won't work anyway. When you play through LIVE, you have to register a key for SF4.

    I heard you could go buy ANY game that has a windows live online key, and use that same key to play all your windows live games online.
    so instead of buying the pc version of sf4 if you wanted to save money you could just just buy at 19 dollar game, DL sf4 and use the key from the 19 dollar game for sf4

    I've heard the same thing, and I tried it and my Kane and Lynch code worked fine with a pirated copy of GTAIV, haven't tried online though since I can't run the game very well but apparently it works.

    Microsoft fucked up big time. One key works unlimited times on any game and several keys can be used simultaneously.
    I know this because I checked it all myself.

    I picked up Universe at War: Earth Assault for $6 new at Big Lots a few months ago, and I've heard of people picking it up cheaper. As much as I'd like to test this, I've lost my LIVE code that came with said disc.

    No way, it can't be true. MS wouldn't allow that.

    So What's going on is that if you have a legal game key you can use it on any pirated version like COD WAW and it will work like a legal version no cracked servers no banning nothing?

    Worked for all the GFWL games I've tried, weird WAW that it's a GFWL game though, I would have thought it'd use the same Serial Number system that was in CoD4.

    lol wait so to clear things up you can buy a cheap legit GFWL and then pirate SF4 for example and play it online WITH the legit key from the other game?


    EDIT: If what i think you guys said is true dosent that mean we could get a serial key off the internet and a pirated wersion of w/e and it should work?
