gam.co.uk is a perfectly legit seller, just bug them for the key if you need it to play. They have support.

You cannot buy just a key here, only the full game which stands at, uh, 60 euro/usd/gbp (i think)

Did you read this ?
A Steam account, registration with enclosed serial code and internet connection are required to play and to access online features.

If you got the game legally from game.co.uk, they HAVE to provide you the means to play it. Talk with them.

It is possible to buy keys around the net, but many of those sellers are shady and some of them got the keys fraudulently, which leads to banning accounts using them.

Yes I have installed Steam and I got a Steam Account as well.

If I write to the customer service whiche I´ve done about 5 times by now, they always put me on the waiting list.

Yeah, steam is unlimited downloading forever....

P.S once downloaded the best thing to do is to create a backup of the said game to DVD so you will never need to download it agian.

Wow- but isn´t that illegal? Downloading Copies of a game??

I mean, one person got the orginal one and then start making copies and selling them?! (example)

Sorry I am new to Steam, that´s why I dunno anything:(

Steam DRM only allows one person to be logged in to an account at any given time, anywhere in the world. If you logged in to my account while I was playing MW2, I would be booted out right away. I believe steam games will then exit as well. Non-steam games that are sold on steam will continue to run however (At least they do for me when steam crashes).

Well you can download the game as many times as you want and give thoose copies to friends but they wont be able to play if you dont give them your steam account or they will have buy a cdkey from steam or some other website.

So they dont get to play and you can have a backup of your game in case you format your computer or change your hardware.

alright thanks guys, but why should I make a backup? I heard that steam saves my game automatically..?

The Steam Backup feature allows you to make a copy of your game on a DVD to install it from there instead of re-downloading the game from Steam, which can take hours or days if you have a slow or unreliable connection.

As for your problem with the serial number, if you legally purchased the game you should be receiving a key to register the game on Steam and install it. If you paid but did not receive the key, then you must contact the seller's customer service, giving them as much information as possible about your purchase (transaction number, name, etc...) and explaining that you did not receive your key yet.
