Tony,

since we have your ear - some suggestions maybe you can forward to the appropriate teams:

- any way we can organize our digital downloads on the amazon page - e.g. I 'bought' some game demos and would love to stash them away from my real game downloads - something similar to what gog.com does with it's virtual bookshelf where you can re-arrange things.

- would be great if you could clearly mark games that need online subscriptions (like rift). I read an earlier suggestion about marking drm-free games.

- as previously suggested - PLEASE allow us to download the games to a different location than our desktop. My nightly backups are picking up gigs of unfinished game downloads - stuff I don't really care to backup.

thank you


Literally all of the things you just mentioned are on the roadmap for our dev team. They just get prioritized behind things like making your download speeds faster :).

In all seriousness though, we definitely have identified some low hanging fruit that we're working on, particularly in DRM/Subscription communication. There is just ALOT of process that has to happen before we create/add any sort of icons to Amazon.com pages.

Thanks for the questions/feedback, as soon as we have stuff in production you guys will be the first to know (or invited to test :)).

Cheers,
Tony

Those are all good suggestions and would be appreciated. My biggest want is auto patching. Having to hear that there is a patch for your game and go and find it is so 1998.

went from 0 digital games to these on amazon in the last 2 months:

empire total war
napoleon total war
medieval II
rome total war
aliens vs. predator
total war shogun 2
lara croft and the guardians of light
shogun 2 the blood pack dlc
shogun 2 rise of the samurai campaign
stronghold collection
civ iv
civ v
heroes v tribes of the east
heroes v hammers of fate
heroes v
dead space 2
dragon age 2
dragon age origins
medal of honor
bad company 2
crysis wars
crysis
crysis warhead
bulletstorm
crysis 2
need for speed hot pursuit
darkspore
the withcer
risen
duke nukem forever
alice madness
spore

I already owned about a third of these but was just sick and tired of having to hunt down for the CDs every time I wanted to play them so got the digital ones instead. A few I could have gotten a bit cheaper at steam but for now i'd rather keep all my games w/ amazon.

question to the forum - I've seen folks trading steam games etc. - my impression was that once you put a code into steam it was locked forever. Are the games being traded never been activated or is there a special way you can detach a game from your account and give it to someone else? Is there also a way to trade amazon games? thanks!

What you see people are trading are either unactivated codes or they are in their steam inventory but have not been "opened" yet.

Yep, basically if you buy a steamworks game on Amazon you could trade or sell the code as long as you hadn't activated it on steam and someone else will then be able to active the code to their steam account.

I tried activating SPore I bought from amazon on Origin and didn't work --- any way to make that a success?


I have an old retail copy and it wouldn't activate either, just kept getting a weird screen. Can anybody even confirm that Spore DOES activate? I know it hd it's own DRM at launch and was one of the first big "online all the time to play single player" games released...

My Dec/Jan. Haul:

Bigfoot Chasing Shadows
Midnight Mysteries Salem Witch Trials (yes I like adventure/hidden treasure games)
Cryostasis
Necrovision
Crysis Max
Crysis 2
Alice Returns
Witcher
GTA IV
Dead Space 2
Homefront

For a grand total of 23.45

That's a little over $2 bucks a game and I actually did better with the deals in January than I did in December... though Cryostasis and Necrovision had been on my list for a few years but I didn't want to pay more than a few bucks for them.


Our hauls are exactly the same, I just bought a few more and left out the Witch Trials :)

I doubt you guys at Amazon digital deals will match GreenManGaming's upcoming deal for Space Marine at $12.49 USD on GroundHog Day (2/2/2012 @ 0000 EST) b/c it's an International Deal...
But can we expect Space Marine from you guys at Amazon download in that ballpark of pricing or lower, sooner or later? :P

Hm, strange, I redeemed the code that Amazon gave me for Bad Company 2 and Origin asked me if it was the Digital Deluxe version, which has Vietnam included, pressed yes and now the game is asking me for the Vietnam code. <_< Think it's something wrong on Amazon's end or should I e-mail EA?

Neither. AFAIK, the only version of BF:BC2 Amazon sells is the base game, which doesn't entitle you to the DLC. Selecting "digital deluxe" if you only have a regular key doesn't give you the DLC, you still have to unlock it by buying it.

Yup, that's what they told me. :P Still it was strange for the Origin client to let me choose the Digital Deluxe.

Still, wanted to test my luck by them giving me the codes. Haha, oh well. :lol:

If T-Money doesn't win, it's inevitably because there are more CAGs that are "console-only" gamers than there are PC CAGs (even with the console/PC CAGs included in this group).

We love you Tony, I hope you know that you win by a landslide in our eyes. ;)

[quote name='konzen30']aaaand thats that, man i just got into pc gaming and these sales made me insomia. Ive been watching steam sales,amazon,gog,gamersgate,d2d,gmg like im some security guard watching hundreds of security tv ugh but it was worth it got a niceee haul for just over $60. thanks amazon![/QUOTE]

You and me both, this past week I've had a couple of nights where I was able to get like SIX hours of sleep. It was glorious :). The past couple of months have been ridiculously awesome though, I'm glad you enjoyed them as much as I did!

[quote name='diishen']Tony, I'm not sure what you got in your sleeves for an encore but this was pretty amazing, you definitely have me looking forward to the next sale =)

Thanks![/QUOTE]

[quote name='Kurina']@Tony

Not sure if you can answer this or not, but are there any plans to run a similar sale during the summer months to compete with the second annual Steam sale that usually happens? I certainly feel like I made quite a haul these past two months at Amazon, and don't want to wait until Christmas to do it again :D[/QUOTE]

This question/comment are similar enough that I'll answer them together.

1. @diishen - We've got some fun stuff baking up over here in the laboratory, stay tuned :).

2. @Kurina - I can't get into specifics but we will definitely be having seasonal promotions as well as ad hoc. Deal of the Week will continue to occur every Sunday-Saturday as well.

[quote name='JKSonic']I was told by a rep that Amazon.com MC's cannot be used for Amazon.com digital purchases. I tried to use mine and it just kept looping me to enter my info again (it was already saved), after talking to three people about it he finally said the issue was you just can't use them.

Ok?...

Anybody else run into that problem.[/QUOTE]

MC? Are those the credit card reward points? If so, I can tell you I talked to the team that owns that project and confirmed that they don't currently work on Digital items but it is on the roadmap for this year with high priority.

[quote name='Freedom Fries']So how about Divinity II? ;)[/QUOTE]

Working on it, I promise, we have a few deals of the week flighted in front of it and I want to make sure we run down and fully test the DRM free version before we promote it (so you guys don't have to patch it yourselves).

Hey MysterD, you're correct we won't match the international deal but we are in conversation about a sale at a similar price point, we've been in these conversations for a while though so I don't have a solid timeline for you yet.

@tjs09 - I would totally encourage you to take advantage of the best price you can on the market to play awesome games. I'd obviously love it if everyone waited around for our promotions, but that wouldn't be a reasonable expectation to set of you as customers. We'll have another promotion that you get jazzed about, I'm sure of it :).

P.S. I don't know if you were going for the Gandalf reference with your post...but it made me laugh.

That is good news! I never actually asked but have been wondering about this for a while. I have a Discover and Chase Amazon Visa and get reward points for both but I can never use them on 'virtual' products like the digital downloads or Android apps.

It would definitely influence my decision to get games from Amazon vs elsewhere if I could use those reward points.
