Yea, I think the promo credit they issued you was a general one.

It sounds like the $5 discount for this sale only appears when you check out with a second Ubisoft game. But, if there's a chance to hold onto that $5 credit for a future sale outside of Ubisoft it might be worth it.

OK, I emailed customer service since mine does seem to be a more general credit it would mean that I cannot place any orders without it automatically being applied.

No Shogun 2 in a sega sale? ):

Anyone planning to buy NBA2k12. It is completely BROKEN on PC! They never patched it. The online flat out doesn't work. My Player mode crashes and you will need to restart your comp after you win the Finals. It's a shame because it's a very good game on consoles, the PC version is just flat out broken.


2K recently released a huge patch...you should check it out.

Man I really want to but I don't want to get banned from Amazon or anything LOL

And i am asking because now I'm not sure if this is the automatic credit or the manual one the rep gave me. I assume the auto one would expire so I could leave it but the manual one might not. I thought I'd better ask :)


If they gave you an extra credit...use it. I'll escalate internally if it becomes an issue. It shouldn't though.

Will the Genesis collection be Steam compatible/"activate-able"? I'm thinking no since it has games that Steam's collections don't bundle.

Would be nice tho.


It is not Steam compatible, it is DRM free.

Sorry to bump but can anyone confirm this?


The $5 credit can only be used on the 19 ubistoft games in the sale, we used the credit to facilitate the $5 BOGO.

I remember the Dreamcast games fondly but $7.50 seems a bit steep for me personally.

Sonic Adventure was great when it came out but hasn't aged well. If you are a Sonic Fan you are better off getting generations.

Space Channel 5 is a classic but I never played 2. I wish it had both like the ps2 release.

Bass fishing really wouldn't be the same without the fishing pole controller.

Crazy Taxi is a good 30 minutes of fun every now and then but I've never been able to play it in more than short bursts.

It does expire on the 14th (says on the offer page) but I'm not sure about the Ubisoft only thing.

If you read above, I accidentally was issued extra credit and when I check my credit it says it applies to games, android apps, mp3s, and instant video. That sounds like it can't be exclusive to Ubisoft but then again my situation is a bit weird ATM.


I bought a $5 Ubisoft game earlier today and then checked my credit balance just to make sure my $5 credit showed up. I had a $5 balance in each of those categories as well (each was $0 before) so I'm not sure how the auto credit was really tagged. I didn't want to push my luck and try to buy anything other than another Ubisoft game.

if you remember the Dreamcast games fondly i'd suggest you just keep your memories. Crazy Taxi with no licensed music (e.g., Offspring) is a step down and you don't want to revisit Sonic Adventures. which... leaves you with two games, Space Channel (still good) and a game i don't understand why it's there (that Bass one).

totally looking forward to that 48 pack and Sonic Generations though.

We don't have them slated for this sale but I'm working on it for early April. Nothing solid in place yet though.

The 48 game collection is DRM free and I am showing we distribute a key for the Dreamcast collection but can't see what it is for. I'll check on this and follow up.

For some reason I want to think that it does.....I believe the version that Green Man Gaming carries does activate on Steam, I don't know if there is a difference between the one they carry and the one that Amazon carries however. If anyone has purchased it try plugging the key you get in Steam and report back.

here is the link to them for reference.

Sonic 4 requires steam, Dreamcast collection......I'm seeing that some places it says that if you get a key for it, that it will activate on Steam. I cant guarantee it however.

EDIT:
Destructoid has a rumor that Shenmue HD Collection has been done for well over a year.
G4TV - Microsoft is trying to get Skies of Arcadia and Shenmue up on XBLA.
Seriously, what's SEGA waiting for?
They should be re-releasing all of this stuff on PSN, XBLA, and of course PC digital services.

@Tony
Can you talk to SEGA and tell them to get going so they can take my $$$? :P

Why would you when, as you mentioned, the console version costs more and is also technically inferior to the 1080p, 60fps version available on PC. It's even less of an issue if you have a TV next to your PC to hook it up to and still be able to game on the couch.


Keep in mind - the dev's have to ALSO make a decent PC port of the [console] game, as well.
It can't be a lazy port job, or else nobody here on the PC will buy it...at least until WAY later, if they do.
For some reason, many sports games on the PC ain't been treated so hot, in some regard...
From leaving out MP portions, to having broken MP's, to poor performance issues on the game [lazy-port job] - yeah, it don't help when those issues come up.

Granted, I ain't played NBA2K12 PC, but I hope those issues ain't there...

I have been thinking the same thing since Dreamcast EMU on PC is pretty much garbage. At least last I tried. Convenience of Steam and my time makes a few bucks for it to be fully working without issues worth it.

I'm not sure about those specific games, but I've been meddling with nullDC (was in active development as of last year..not sure anymore..)...And it works probably 95% perfect. Jet Grind Radio runs smooth as normal, with only some weird shadow issues once in a while. they've made strides!

Sonic Generations is awesome, but that's coming from a Sonic fanboy.

There's a demo on Steam you can try.
