For what it's worth, I use Paypal from my bank account on GMG through Firefox and never had a problem. I live in Canada.

Have you followed the discussion among game makers about how production costs are completely getting out of hands? We are talking about double digit millions, to create the content for an AAA game. There is no way they can sell games cheaper, they are hardly making their money back these days. It's definitely your worst case scenario we are seeing here.
And who in their right mind would pay $60 when they knew that they could get the game for $10 3 months later.

On Topic: the Hitman deal is on the homepage now, they seem to have removed the credit/cashback option. I hope mine will still come through.
Either way, still a great deal, glad I didn't bite earlier.

Now back to making room on my SSD for this monster...



Yeah, when I bought it, there wasn't a credit/cashback offer. not complaining though. Can't beat $10 this close after release.

When i saw this great offer i rushed to GMG and pressed BUY! but guess what? cannot complete order, as usual... every damn game i want to buy from GMG i must send a support ticket, after a couple of hours, or even days, they answer :

"Hi,

I've made further amendments so please try again and sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,"

Then i buy the game, and after that, if i want another game.. then i must send another ticket.
It's mind blowing that a site, well known as GMG has this "bug" for so long, and don't ever adressed it in a official post or something.

In in for hitman. It said 27gb which scared me since i have a cap but luckily comcast raised it to 450gb even though they said they "lifted it" still better then 250gb. Turns out the game is only 13gb as well.

You're lucky. I only have a 50GB cap so I'm waiting until midnight to download the game (no data cap between midnight and 8am).

A Binomial Nut Shot (anagram) is only a 13.5 GB download, I assume it'll take the full 25 GB on disk, halfway downloaded, hours left to go.

I'm glad to hear Crapcast upped their cap to 450gb. I can hit that on my 6 Mbps connection (uncapped).

Hitman Ab will be $12.50 tomorrow, I'm assuming 20% will stack.

Yeah me too. Unfortunately my options are crapcast or crapverse and crapverse is worse and has a 250gb cap.

250 was fine before i bought a gaming PC, on average i would just hit 150-200 but i finally got a gaming PC last month and hit about 432gb which is how i found out about the 450gb raise (if you go over 450gb they add 50gb and bill you $10) i doubt i will get that high again unless i go on a huge buying spree like i did last month and i hope i don't because my wallet can't handle this.. I dread these summer/winter steam sales i have been hearing about for years.

Is the Hitman Steam key region locked? I already have the game, but showed the deal to a friend in the Netherlands. The price for her shows as €14.99. If I buy it, will she be able to activate the key? I don't want to waste 10 bucks if she won't be able to activate it.

It redeems on steam as "Hitman Absolution Professional WW" I'm guessing the WW is worldwide, but I'm no expert on the regional stuff.

On the other hand, good sales encourage people to consider buying a game that they never would have bought in the past. As an example here, I know I had absolutely no interest in paying more than $15 for Hitman Absolution. For $5-$10, I'm certainly much more keen to check it out. Sales broaden the market of potential customers for a game.
At the same time, games I'm excited for I'll probably buy well before it hits that sub-$10-$15 price point. Bioshock Infinite may very well be $20 by the summer, but I want to play it close to release, and so I'll take advance of that $45 deal on GMG.

Gamasutra had a great article on this with topic on how Developers feel about Steam sales:

According to indie developer and Super Meat Boy co-creator Edmund McMillen, these promotions can increase sales to an almost staggering extent. His 2D dungeon crawler The Binding of Isaac, for example, saw sales multiply by five when it was marked down by 50 percent, and once it hit the front page as a temporary "Flash Deal" (for 75 percent off), sales multiplied by sixty.

"It's not uncommon for our partners to see [a] 10-20 times revenue increase on games they run as a 'Daily Deal.' Some titles really take off and see as much [as a] 70-80 times increase in revenue," Holtman said.

Yes, I know this as well, though the >10fold increase refers in all likelihood to small indie games, not AAA titles. But steam sales used to be -75% after a year or so. Now we have -80% after 3 months. At this point developers might be losing more full price customers than they can make up for with CAGs.

It's never been cheaper than this, unless GMG has a more than 20% coupon at the same time it was 3.74$

http://www.steamgame...eN/just-cause-2

But yeah, it does hit 3.74$ pretty often.
