Has Amazon thought about 4 pack prices like Steam has for some of its games? Usually multiplayer/co-op. With the amazing deals you're having, they come out cheaper than 4 pack, but for non-deal days, it would be a great incentive I think.

Yeah, we've talked about it for sure, and it is one of those things we've added to our development roadmap. I don't have clear visibility into when we'll be rolling it out though.

Tony,

Any hints whether Alan Wake will be part of a deal when it's first available on Amazon?

I know you guys are working hard on the upcoming sale, and that you're working on getting Alan Wake up, I guess the question is - will the stars align right away, or are we looking a couple weeks at least before a sale? :D

Thanks

I'm not sure when Alan Wake will be part of a deal, mostly because I'm not 100% sure when we're getting it on sale, other than soon. I know it won't be part of the upcoming promotion due to this lack of certainty about release.

I'll let you know though :).

FYI don't know if everyone saw, but we moved the price of ME3 back to $59.99 but added $10 promo credit good for other video games (all video games not just game downloads) for 1 year.

Has anyone asked Amazon support for a replacement key yet? how did you get them to give you a new one?

EA/Origin claims my crysis key is invalid but Amazon support says my key is fine - with me stuck in the middle. thanks!

Were you trying to register Crysis with Origin? If so it won't....you'd have to ask a EA rep to add it and cross your fingers that you find one that will. I don't know if they are supposed to or not but it seems really hit or miss with getting them to do it.

^This I have gone through 2 EA rep who either say please contact Amazon or they don't understand what I am talking about. I am currently in line with the third rep from EA trying to get Mass Effect registered on my Origin account. Just sucks the wait time is like 15min for each time.

I've gone through 4 reps so far - and managed to add most of my current and older EA games registered. crysis they claim the key is bad and when I try to use one of the 'special' links, it complains the key is already used.

so somehow they've done something to it but not the right thing. ohh well - will keep trying :)

i just sent an email to support yesterday to register my ME key with origin... they had me set up an account at the pogo site (that's been mentioned several times in this thread) and link it to my EA account, then they just added the key for me. maybe 5 minutes of my actual time, although spread over a period of several hours.

Wow. 4.99 for Payday, better than I expected to see it for at least a year. Definitely in for it, wish I could get the PSN version for 4.99 too but they never have good sales.

Hey Tony and the rest of the Amazon team , good job on everything your doing, to provide us gamers with amazing deals. Just one request , would it be possible to add the "add to wishlist" function to the download games , so we can easily store our most wanted games together and in future if gifting becomes a possibility others can buy for us.
Thanks alot , would like to see a good deal on the saboteur and the first nfs shift game in the future!!


I agree, this would be a fantastic feature and seems like it shouldn't be difficult to implement. Instant watch movies and shows can be added to a wish list, for example.

Our version of Payday is definitely Steam activateable. It is at the bottom of the page, and yes, I agree that this should should be more prominent on the page. Changing design elements on Amazon pages is a Herculean task that I'm currently trudging through :).

Cheers,
Tony



Yes, PLEASE emphasize how important this is to them. I can honestly say that after price, whether or not a game is Steam activate-able and what, if any, other DRM it may have is the single biggest deciding factor on whether or not I will buy a game. Given the many, many, many times people ask about this, I hardly think I am alone.

If there is anyone I can write personally about this to Amazon let me know and I will do it. Other sites place this information prominently at the top and it's rather irksome to have to always hunt around for it, plus I am sure you are tired of answering the same question over and over. ;-)

I agree, this would be a fantastic feature and seems like it shouldn't be difficult to implement. Instant watch movies and shows can be added to a wish list, for example.



For now, I just use the universal wishlist button. You can use it to add any item from any site to an Amazon wishlist, even Amazon pages that don't normally have the option.

Pretty sure Amazon won't price match them, but for what it's worth, it's on sale for $10 now at Onlive.

Its hit or miss. The more you explain, the better off you are. Whenever I had those old EA games added I always tell them that I created a pogo account, and that I had my profile linked. That I spoke to another EA rep and they told me to do that and then contact EA back to have my game activated. It seems like when I tell them those few things it must be key, because after that I have never had an issue getting a game activated.

We'll have it for cheaper than this as a DOTW in March. I had to push it out of Feb because we're getting the DRM free version, and both us and the publisher had some testing to do to make sure everything is good to go.

We'll have the lowest price this game has been, ever, including during our holiday sale...AND DRM free.

Ah, I forgot that they were yanking out the DRM. That's definitely worth waiting for. Thanks for the update.
