@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.


Wow, I usually miss with those references. :)

Can't wait until the next promotion. I've already stocked up my bank account for round two :D

I really like this price matching thing which AMAZON regularly do. But what competitive edge it gives over STEAM when both are selling at exactly the same price???

Drabelincoln touched on credit, but if you look at the sales history our competitive edge has come in the form of simply having awesome deals. Some examples include:

1. Deus Ex: $9.99 MONTHS before anyone else
2. Just Cause 2: $2.50
3. Civ V GOTY: $10.49
4. Borderlands GOTY: $5.99
5. NBA 2K12: $9.99
6. Dungeon Defenders: $1.99
7. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light: $1.99
8. Crysis 2: $9.99
9. Currently selling Darkness II for $42.49 - 15% lower than Steam, and have had it 20% lower.
10. Dungeon Siege III: $4.99
11. Anno 2070: $34.99
12. Total War: Shogun 2: $7.49 months before anyone else
13. Risen: $5.99
14. Tropico 4: $4.99
15: Giving $5 coupons to everyone who bought games in December so they could get games like Crysis 2 for $5, Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate + Dragon Age 2 for $6.99, Dead Space 2 for free, Assassin's Creed for free.

We match our competitors so customers know they can come to Amazon and get the best prices (U.S. Prices) and we maintain a competitive edge by running awesome promotions pretty regularly...Hope this helps answer your question.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

GameFly has Bulletstorm PC game download for $6.
I wonder if Amazon will match that for others.
I already own Bulletstorm PC - EASILY worth $6, if you ask me.

GameFly bought out Direct2Drive recently and are now doing PC downloads, BTW.

So, around tomorrow at 10am PST, we will get out Amular game keys that we can register on Origin so we can pre-load/download it?

You should, yes. You'll also be charged at that time as we're delivering you bits. You'll get an email when everything is ready to roll. You should also be able to hear me shout "Wooohooo!" from my couch once the download begins...regardless of where you are.

@Tony

GameStop PC App [formerly Impulse] is going to have From Dust PC download for $3.75 for the first 100 people who get in on it at 1pm EST.

Do you guys at Amazon match these VERY Limited Time and/or Limited Customer deals that some of these other download stores like Origin and GameStop PC App do?

From their Facebook.

From their Twitter.

@GameStopDL GameStop Downloads
From Dust for 7% off in 2 hours! That's $3.75 for a game with a Metacritic score of 80! One of our favorite 'out of the box' games of 2011.

I registered them on Origin, but Origin's lagging and going SLOW as HELL right now...Ugh.
Origin ain't even showing the game and bonus content key, even though it easily accepted both of them via its Origin activation.
Origin servers must be getting killed and getting bogged-down.

So, I'm DL this through Amazon DL [clicked Download from there]...getting nice 3.5 MB per sec DL speeds w/ them.

Got it downloaded from Amazon [nice!] - but having troubles installing it, since it is forcing the install over Origin, once DL'ed from Amazon.
Error "100" or something.
CTD (Crash to Desktop) on install every time.
And those Origin services must be getting hammered. Getting a pop-up message on sign-in to Origin saying that there has been "connection issues."

EDIT:
Now I remember after Bioshock 1 PC, why I often normally do NOT buy games for Pre-Order, Pre-Load, or on Release Date - b/c the servers for activation, client issues, and dealing w/ the DRM [if there is any, usually is] can be a real pain in the neck.
It's like rolling a loaded-pair of dice, all w/ 1's plastered on each side of the die.
Royal crap-shoot.
