Just read the following on EA Insider Deals' facebook page!


Unlock 50% off Mass Effect, Bulletstorm, or Alice: Madness Returns + free shipping (US only). If we get 500 likes by Wednesday at 5 PM PST, we'll unlock the deal at that time.


http://www.facebook....ginInsiderDeals

UPDATE: Looks like they are giving out $10 coupons (off a $30 purchase) that can be used in December, with any game purchase this month.

Also FYI, the Best Buy TIV for Bulletstorm is $11, and Alice is $16 :) I'm not normally a flipper, but these could become quick rentals and then used in the 50% bonus on preorders thing.

Would definitely be in for Alice (but watch Gamefly finally put it on sale right afterward).

Do the current copies still come with the original game?

Yeah this is definitely the time to pick and choose your deals, with BF coming. Also to answer someone's question they do sell console games, although it does not look like they have mass effect for the 360.

The 360 version wasn't published by ea so that would explain why.

Wait, so are they talking about mass effect 2 or 1? ME2 is $20 msrp now so if its ME2 it should be $10 + tax and free shipping?

I need to buy ME2 for PS3 (my 360 RROD and didn't work after I tired to fix it). I would totally bight on a $10 (plus tax) copy! Otherwise, I'm just waiting for BF/CM and hoping for a deal.

The Online Pass is the original game, so all new copies should come complete with the pass.

I picked up Alice a while back for $25 plus shipping and it was absolutely worth it. For 20 bucks it's a steal, especially considering that the original version is also included (via DLC code).

I'm probably slightly biased because I played the Fuck out of Alice on PC back in the day, but I love this game.

The facebook page says "Unlock 50% off Mass Effect, Bulletstorm, or Alice: Madness Returns"

The "or" makes it sound like you can only buy 1 of those games. Am I wrong for assuming it's just one game per order? For instance, if I want to buy alice and bulletstorm, I'll just need to submit two separate orders, correct?

You are correct. The way it has worked in the past, the code is released and it can be used multiple times. If you would like to purchase more than one it would have to be on a separate order.

Currently playing Alice right now (got it from GS just last week, so of course this deal pops up right after) and I'm really enjoying it overall. Def worth the $20 (plus you get the first game - even better).

I got a really strong Psychonauts-vibe from the whole game. SPOILER: There's even a statue of Raz hidden in the game - very very awesome.

Looks like this deal just got sweeter guys. If you buy any game this month you get a $10 coupon that can be used in December (on a purchase of $30 or more). Not bad if you pick up Bulletstorm for $12.50, and plan on shopping with Origin again next month. I will update the OP.

New copies come with a code to download the original game off PSN/XBL.

I thought Bulletstorm would be $15 because it would be 50% off the original price. $12.50 makes it even better.:)

I think I'll pass on Alice and I have Mass Effect 2. I bought mass effect 2 used, so I don't have the online code. Is it worth paying $10 just to get the code?

Yeah Bulletstorm was already on sale for $24.98, so I assume it will be half off THAT price. As for ME2, I recently bought a copy on Amazon that was supposed to be new but was open. I haven't played it yet so I don't know if the code was used, what does it do? They gave me a discount when I told them it was open so I paid just over $6 for it. I could buy another one in this deal and trade my current copy into BB....
