I really like GOG.com and want to buy games here, but I have already many games on Steam and many of them exist here too. It would be really awesome if there was a way to transfer my games here without buying them again at full price. I like the way how iTunes Match working — you pay 25 bucks a year and all your prepurchased music is available in Store. Is such system possible?

@nightcraw1er.488 According to the EULA (That thing you just click "Agree" on and never read), you have never, ever, Yes Never, bought a game in your life to own. No matter what anyone tells you, it's always a license to play. Nevermind the fact that unless you got the game on a physical medium, you still own nothing. Servers fail. Businesses fail. If that happens (there is no such thing as too big to fail), no amount of "I bought it on GOG, I own this game!" is gonna help you.

As cool as this would be, GoG would lose money on this just because people bought it somewhere else.... I know of plenty of games I have bought twice on other clients... just buy it again if it is that good or use dual clients. If GOG does well on this I will stop buying on steam and buy at GOG, but I do not expect them to replace all my steam copies.

This is what would skyrocket GOG because the reason i got GOG is that steam cant connect to the servers from my pc (dunno why) so if i could play FONV or TESV i'd be a GOG loyalist.

I bought a lot of Star Wars games here recently even though I already owned them on Steam. I prefer gog.com, I want to support gog.com but I can't double (triple) purchase every game I already own. Even if it was just a discount, it would really encourage me to buy a copy on gog

You do understand that on Steam you haven't actually brought the game. You are just paying to rent it. So why would they allow you move something you don't really own elsewhere? It makes no business sense for either GOG or Steam or the game producer. Face it, Steam owns you!

doing it NOW is too late. futuure games maybe they can do this. like if you buy the physical pc game and have that steam key it could also have gog key for it too. but doing it now is either impossible or very hard unless the dev of the game is really generous and sent out gog keys of the game to ppl that bought the steam version.

@mttrackmaster38 I agree completely. Take for example the Star Wars lightsaber bundle on sale on GOG now (29 April 2015). I already own all the games on Steam from long before they were available on GOG. If GOG had these games available DRM free when I bought them on Steam, I would have bought them on GOG instead of Steam. Unfortunately GOG did not (I do not blame GOG for this). I am a HUGE fan of the Witcher franchise, I bought Witcher 1 and 2 on GOG and pre-ordered Witcher 3. While these games are available on Steam, I chose to buy them on GOG instead because GOG is DRM free. Whenever I have a choice for a new game (like Witcher 3) I will support GOG above Steam because they are against DRM. Should I have to buy all my older Steam purchases again on GOG simply because they were not available on GOG at the time ? That seems a bit rough to me. If GOG allowed me to redeem my existing Steam games on their account for free, they would definitely earn a loyal customer for life.

I would definitely vote for gog.com showing ownership status elsewhere in my library here, with the corresponding filter when buying from a list (e.g. when a sale is on). isthereanydeal.com is already able to read different accounts and combine the games, maybe gog.com could just contract out to the guy who runs this site for the coding?
In the light of not sending customers to the competition, this should be an opt-in option in the account settings; but if it is that, then a button to start the game via Steam URL (again, isthereanydeal does this) would make it viable to browse games here and install/start them from here, regardless of where I own them. That would make gog.com more attractive as a "game library" application. It would also enable gog.com to target sales emails, as in "you own these games on Steam, to get them DRM free cheap buy now from us, they're on sale".

It is pretty clear to me that getting Steam games onto gog.com isn't going to happen, the potential for fraud is just to high: Find a rich friend who's not interested in gog.com, link their Steam account to your gog.com account: presto, huge gog.com library for free! It may be possible to link accounts (since foreign sites can do Steam logins now), and a system could be set up for selling the gog.com version cheaply (say, 50-99 cents) if the buyer already owns a Steam license, sort of like an add-on. That cost would need to cover gog.com's expenses for the downloads etc.

Doing this for GOG wouldn't be free its the devs/publishers that can generate steam keys. GOG would have to negotiate this service from them and while there might be no cost involved in generating the key there is one in administering the process. GOG would likely lose money in the negotiation with the dev/publisher, as it benefits GOG and potentially hurts them, and then have to create a system for key distribution. I'm not saying its impossible or wouldn't work out in the long term but its far from simple and is not free.

This seems vital, to me. While I understand not wanting to enrich someone else's garden, my preferred environment is the Steam client and when it comes down to choosing between a game on Steam or a game on GOG, I go for Steam. I would much rather buy more games on GOG and just have the option of registering them through Steam. This may not be possible on a lot of titles, but it should be pursued where it is. My understanding is that one can generate all the keys they want for a game via Steam and distribute them to whomever they want (there is no charge to generate keys for your game, that is). So this would be a great gesture that would foster more sales on GOG.

As it is, I tend to purchase my games on Steam (where I have a nearly 2,000 title library) and only purchase them at GOG as a "back up" once the title is ridiculously cheap over here (a couple bucks or so).

The idea of paying a subscription fee for "matching" is unnecessary, however. This simple gesture means that for the fee of zero dollars, you can offer someone a key so they can experience their game through the interface they choose and you get the full sale. Alternately, without a key, that person would just buy it directly on Steam and you lose the 30% cut of that transaction to Valve.

My GOG library is nearly 700 titles, but with this feature, I would likely own the entire catalog and always check GOG before making a purchase, going forward.

Just a small point Humble doesn't do this anything remotely like this. Humble allows the developer/publisher to sell steam keys. Humble doesn't lose money cause its just holding your keys and handling the transaction. Steam takes a loss for this, depending on contracts, but as its the market leader it can afford it. I would also suggest the client plays a role in converting those buyers into steam users but I wouldn't really know having never used it.

Gog does do this for certain games (The Witcher 2, for example.) You need to enter the cd key you can find on Steam as a code.

As for people making silly comparisons and complaining that gog will make no money.... that's not the case. In fact, they've recently made a push to allow you to add old physical game keys without re-purchasing.

As for the silly examples, it's more like you buy a digital movie through one of the major cable/ondemand carries, and then expect to *actually* own a physical copy of that DVD. Except that you DO have that right. If you leave your provider, you have the right to ask them to send you a hard copy of EVERY movie you have purchased (not just rented) through them, and they have to send it to you. Straight from a rep from one of those large companies I'm not naming.

Also, those that argue that you are buying a license to use the game ON STEAM, not quite, but close. The reason I disagree is that even a physical copy of any digital media, be it a game, music cd, or movie, always only grants you the right to a license for that product. You never own the product - you can't legally sell access to it like a movie theater, or reproduce the songs at will. Why? Because you only own the right to use them, not the product itself. Whether it's through Steam or another system is irrelevant.

BTW, the link for the Witcher 2 conversion to GoG from Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/linkfilter/?url=http://www.gog.com/witcher/backup

Have fun!

Humble Bundle Store does it, it is a pro-consumer policy and GoG should do it also. Hopefully it is something that the competition will motivate it's implementation, because I really like GoG but I like gathering my library in one place also.

I wonder if the people voting this have basic knowledge about digital rights. You DON'T OWN any of the games, YOU BOUGHT a LICENSE to play it ON STEAM. Got it? GoG doesn't have the need to spend THEIR money on an incredibly painful logistics movement (which needs Steam's consent) to transport the licenses. That without putting in the table the incredible cost of giving to thousands of people games they didn't gave a dime to GoG for and use their bandwidth to download them. Don't you wan't GoG to take your children to the school and pay your electricity bill? Jeez

This isn't really possible without some sort of direct agreement between Valve and GOG I think. But a way to mark games as being owned outside of GOG, so that they appear in faded colors on the shelf (but you can't download anything from them) and they're marked as being "owned (elsewhere)" in the main game catalogue, would be good.

Otherwise, it's something you can negotiate directly with the game publisher. Give them a proof of purchase and ask them for a GOG redeeming code.

Think about legal rights. If you buy a game on Steam, you have permission to play it via Steam. If they make the game available to you on GOG for free, that would probably lead to copyright issues (giving games away for free).

I realy love GOG now since they have added Linux support, but I cant buy games from GOG since I have already my games in Steam and I dont want to purchased them again in GOG.

If there was an option to transfer my games in GOG or if GOG was giving me an optional Steam Key for my Steam Library I would really love that and would support GOG.

@Rinu: Actually, that's not how iTunes Match works. In fact, even most DRMed music you bought via iTunes when they still locked music with DRM can be upgraded to iTunes Plus (more bitrate and no DRM). Most, because whatever isn't on the Store anymore is not eligible.

If this is possible, I think it would be quite useful.

If manual is the only option, I could see how it might be gamed for a random sale. Something like setting everything to owned except for the few games you want. However, it seems like a necessary enough feature to figure out some sort of implementaiton.

I don't really want to be able to activate my steam games on here.

but I would really love to be able to manually mark them as "already owned elsewhere" or something like that. that wouldn't be too much to ask, right??

then the next step would be to just supply steam's profle ID and let GOG itslef mark the already owned games as owned. but I think that would be too much (although many sites offer that feature....) and then you'd have to do for other services too - which could prove more difficult.

The system, Evgeniuz, you describe is kind of available via deep sales.

I assume iTunes Match will remove all your "forein" songs once you stop paying them the fee. This is kind of rental service. GOG has always been offering - pay once, own forever.

If you would be willing to pay fee X for Y amount of games currently available in the system, why not use that budget for picking a couple of games during 80%+ discounts per year?

I'd just like to be able to mark games as Owned, and allow us to Tag the game with a small icon. To denote if it's Steam, or DRM-free from elsewhere, or a physical CD.

Not expecting GOG to support the game I didn't buy from them, nor allow me to download it. Just allow it on my shelf, and show owned with the "other icon" wherever GOG would mark the game as owned, when purchased from GOG.

Maybe, the [BUY] button could be [OWNED [*] Buy from GOG]

Certainly not expecting any discount on games from elsewhere.

It's a pain in the ass trying to keep track of games, CDs, GamersGate (some activated on Steam, some DRM free), the odd thing from EA, the one game from Origin.

I would imagine some others have even more games spread across multiple services.

If GOG doesn't do it, I'm sure at some point some "service" will come along that will at least let you have a centralized location for listing games you own/or have a license for.

Even Gamers Gate shows you all the games you bought from them, whether or not they are Steam or DRM-free downloads. Which is better than GOG at this point.

At the risk to repeat myself :
GOG gets his force by seeling DRM Free games, why do you want to kill this by asking Steam keys ? If you want a game on Steam, just go and buy your game ON STEAM, if you want a DRM Free, go to buy it here but do NEVER mix them.
I bought Elder Scrolls Anthology, what a surprise when I saw Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim disc that was only Steam saved files... I felt betrayed, Now Steam own the world of PC Games. GOG is the only one that still offer games without to ever mention that fat Steam software and stupid users would want to mix them ? God !! I hope you are kidding ! I refuse to follow you, GOG isn't Steam, they are different, if you have so many games on Steam, it means you are an idiot who don't really care that video games in 2014 is getting shit so please stay on your Steam and get out of here

What does GoG get out of doing this? Because I'm not seeing any benefit to them at all. You're twenty five dollars a year is nothing. I spent twenty five dollars this week and I'm likely to spend more thank to the weekend sale.

Do you think this will entice Steam users to abandon Steam and use GoG exclusively? Hell no. They'll just wait for Steam sales to undercut whatever the current price is on GoG and get both. Why wouldn't they? It's called being a good consumer.

There is literally zero return for GoG and this will cost them millions if they're actually stupid enough to. Frankly if they did this today and the manage to survive out the year I would consider that divine intervention and conclusive proof that there is a god.

Hell, Valve will profit from this far more than GoG ever will since they're the ones making sales while GoG is literally giving them away (protip: GoG does not stand for Give out Games). Then Steam can show those numbers to the developers and entice more of them to go Valve.

Or do you think it's GoG's responsibility to correct your mistakes when you buy a game on Steam without checking to see if it's DRM free elsewhere? Because make no mistake if you buy a game on Steam that's also on GoG, you done fucked up.

@LexHollow: I found your example even more ridiculous than all that examples with cars. You can't use that ticket from cinema even to visit the same movie at the same cinema ever again. Such ticket grants you right to watch that movie only onece at particular time and you must be in particular place to be able to watch it. Buying a disc with a movie is a completelly different story since you are buying a right to watch that movie from that disc whenever you want and wherever you want. Additionally you have a right to make a backup copy of it no matter what movie publisher thinks about that. You have no rights to distribute such copies since you doesn't own actual movie and that seems completely fair to me.

So, when you buying a game you actually buying a right to play it whenever you want and wherever you want (place, not platform). Usually you have no rights to share it with friends and that's ok.

Actually it would be only fair if stores would agree to sell games and movies with a major discount for those who already own rights to play and watch them. Of course price couldn't go below price of the medium and store still have all the rights to get his fee (since you are attempting to use their service) but that is only portion of the price and usually not a significant one.

BTW, I think that it is not fair to ask for a full price of the game even if you own a copy of it on the different platform. Of course making a port of the game to a different platform isn't free and new version of the game may contain more content but paying the full price just isn't fair. For example I were happy to buy Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition with 66% discount granted to me by the developer for owning a copy of Gold Edition but I would never buy a game which I already "own" on PS3 unless it's significantly discount (that's how I end up buying Rocketbirds which I already "own" on the PS3).

I'm amazed how many people hare are trying to compare games with physical objects in the real world. It's so wrong on so many levels… Well, it were (partially) true when games were distributed on discs but that is not the case with Steam.

Also Valve and GOG are indeed different companies for sure... so what? Valve have no rights to forbid anyone to give their customers the same games as the do or ask to pay any fee for that. Only respective right holders could and that is developers and/or publishers, not Valve (at least while there are no their games on GOG). Discussing this topic with each of them is the biggest problem here.

I doubt that game developers would be against such feature because they already agreed to sell DRM-free copies of their games here on GOG. They won't get money for double-buys but they should undarstand that it's only fair. Big publishers may not approve such feature for their games, though, sicne they want to get as much money as possible no matter how unfair it is.

I do agree that direct import could be impractical but major discounts (90-95%) in case when game is already owned would be great. At least this will help to convince part of developers and publishers. Income from single operations will be smaller but total amount of buys could be much bigger than potential income from double-buys since low price makes such buys much more likely to happen.

Such feature won't give any significant immediate gains to GOG but will help to rise userbase and increase gains in the future.
