Default digital.2kgames.com - is it safe to purchase from?

To buy the game you have to tell your important info..
that means your credit card and address.

I'm assuming it's safe, but you can always Google the website to find out if it is safe. Large and well known companies tend to have more secure websites. It helps them draw in more customers.

Both stores (Gearbox's and 2K's) have the ability to do PayPal payments. So if you aren't comfortable with supplying Gearbox/2K with your details, the PayPal method may assist you here (however, you still need to supply your details to PayPal to have an account...)...

Another option if you're really paranoid is to obtain a pre-paid credit card with a small amount of monetary value and use it online.

Wow I didn't realise there was a 2K store, now I can buy the DLC!

It appears Gearbox doesn't want my money, or any other Australian person who I've asked to test the site. The GBX Store just returns an error
