Does anyone know if copies of Shadowrun are permanently tied to a single Windows Live ID?

I've just found a copy in my drawer and wondering if it's worth taking to the local games exchange store or if I should just toss it.

  • It's somewhat off topic, but to answer your subquestion: the PC game has been worth less than $1 in the U.S. since 2011 and isn't worth trading in. – Wolf Sep 5 '12 at 20:36

I own this game. The serials/keys aren't bound to a Windows Live ID. You can install the game on multiple computers but only use one key concurrently.

From what I've read and heard, it's possible for other WLIDs to be used instead, so it's worth taking it down there just in case.

  • Ok, is there any chance it could compromise my own ID if I did so? – Earl Sven Aug 12 '12 at 14:31
  • I very highly doubt it because the WLID is not saved on the disc. – JohnHoulderUK Aug 12 '12 at 14:31
  • @EarlSven - The worst case the person who buys your copy ( if the store even does so ) will be unable to register the copy they purchase. – Ramhound Aug 13 '12 at 12:50
