They have in the past. That is how I got my Witcher pre-order.

No idea on the witcher2 key SKY, I was talking about the 25% off pre-orders. That said quite a few games can use the cd key through steam, I am just not interested in W2 dont know.

if the game uses steam as its copy protection then yes it works on steam. If the game doesnt use steam as its copy protection/main release venue, then its just like any other stand alone game you would have bought at the store or whatever. And yes it works on preorders, i just preordered brink with it, which is a steam game btw :)

If the Witcher 2 uses steamworks it will work on steam (using the D2D key), if not I wouldn't bet on it. I doubt the BF3 key worked on steam, a) because D2D doesn't give you your key until the game is released (or you when you can start pre loading it) b) Steam doesn't list BF3 in it's store yet.

Civ 5 is on sale 40% off, and the bunny promo code works as well, so it comes out the 22 and change. Debating if I should get it.

Bingo, I never said anything about BF3 other than the 25% off worked for the preorder, so for 40 buck you get BF3 pre order.
Just SKY confusing the issue.

well I decided to grab Civ V. Was tempted maybe to pre order DiRT 3 or Witcher 2, but I think I might wait untill they go on sale after they are released.
