@Tony
Mass Effect 3: Standard Edition PC download = $53.99 on GameFly.
Will Amazon price-match that deal...?
AND still also give the $10 voucher out? :P

:) The $10 voucher is in place to make sure that the effective cost is better. We've been getting tons of feedback that people LIKE credits, and that we should try it on a major release...so we are :).

Glad you're digging the deals! Hope you find some good stuff.

Although steam has "If you own #FM12, from 6pm GMT for 48 hours, you can "gift" it to a friend via Steam for just £4.99 (or similar discount locally)!"

Amazon is still the BEST! :applause:

Actually, I am interested in it. Is this a sale for March 8th? FM 2012?

Also, you never answered my question on Borderlands 2. Will the PC version be getting the $10 credit like the 360 and PS3 versions at any point?

Yep this goes live tomorrow March 8th and for Football Manager 2012.

Also I'm not sure on the $10 credit for the PC version, as I don't work in packaged goods. We haven't determined our pricing strategy for BL2 on the digital side as we're still collecting data on the ME 3 and how the $10 credit affected the performance of that product.

I'd rather ME3 be straight-up $50, to be honest.
$10 vouchers for later and credits that last for X amount of time are only good IF you wind-up using them...

Vouchers worked well w/ the Best of 2011 Promotion you had in Jan 2012 b/c you had awesome sales on things, w/out even including the voucher. The voucher just made the deals often EVEN BETTER.

Yeah, we know there is a segment of the market that prefers a straight price discount to a $10 credit, however there is a very vocal segment that is consistently asking for credits with purchase. So we're testing it with a major title to see how it works out :).

Football Manager 2012 is well worth the price (but if you wanted the game, why don't you already own it?!!?!?)

So far I have put in 345 hours.... I like it, what can I say?

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

I'll just keep on waiting on ME3 until I find the deal I'm looking for, then...

Is it possible, that the future credits could apply to more then just games? I'd like to see the credits work towards digital downloads as well. Music dl for example.

I'm speaking about the digital sales portion. Not sure if there is way to do that, branching off from the normal game preorder bonuses.

Oh, yeah - I bet PLENTY of digital music.
Especially from Amazon download.

Only problem is that I bet Amazon MP3 Music Downlaods and Amazon Game Downloads are DIFFERENT divisions.

Agreed 100%.

When you get a game really cheap and get a $5 voucher for credit [like you did in Nov-Dec 2011] for their upcoming BSO Sale in 2011 [that they held in Jan 2012] - and then the BSO 2011 deals were so good in the first place [and even better to make it great w/ the voucher], it was just incredible.
I don't think Amazon can create such kind of awesome magic again...but, hell, I could be wrong.

When you get $10 voucher for an expensive game [like Mass Effect 3]....to use later - yeah, I don't know...this just doesn't seem as good.

20% Off ME3 on release day is to good to pass up not grabbing it from their.

What is you guys price point on ME3 PC? I see someone has it on amazon for 49 shipped for the boxed version. Couldn't you just activate it on Origin just the same? Comes out the about the same as the digital version with the 10 dollar credit.

ME3 PC requires Origin PERIOD.
Like it or not, you're going to have to deal w/ Origin.
