The supply is out there, you're just not waiting long enough. The problem is there's a lot of what I'd call "NEEDITNAO" demand, and more "ISELLFORMORCUZICAN" supply. Don't worry, I'm impatient too, but in this case I'd hold out for $2. ;)

Price is determined by the generosity of the seller and how much the buyer is willing to buy. ;)


Waiting and price drops are the reason why we're able to get 5 EA games for $10.

And believing that price is determined by the seller's generosity is like believing companies want to create jobs. Everyone wants to make, or save, as much money as they can. If a company can cut your job and still make the same amount of money, they will do so. If a company can make more money by hiring someone, they will do so. It's the American way :-D

Use https://activate.ea....activategame.do

I activated Mercenaries 2 using that site.


Just tried my Retail Key for Mercenaries 2.
Yup, that worked there. :D
It's now on my Origin account.

That EVE Online deal is pretty damn good. Play the 2 week trial to see if you like it, $5 in for a month and all the expansion content, and then if you play enough you never have to pay for the game again.

Ditto. I'll pay three bucks for a spare Saboteur code!

Also, I saw the comment about Bulletstorm activating on Origin and IT WORKS NOW WOOHOO!

... Mass Effect still doesn't though. >:|


For what it's worth, I activated my Mass Effect key (that I got GMG) on Origin a couple of months back using the old EA Product Activation site.

I think I have a new tier when thinking about a game and price:

1. I'll get for pre-order/retail (never for me, but someday I might)

2. I'll get for 25%-50% off (rare)

3. I'll get when it hits $15-10 during a seasonal sale (sometimes)

4. I'll get when it bottoms out at $5 or less (pretty common, with maybe a little more if there is a ton of GOTY DLC).

And now...

5. I'll get when it ends up in one of Tony's packs

That's the thing that I don't like most about these MMO's - the "pay a (usually monthly) subscription fee so you can keep playing factor."

With EVE, you can afford your monthly sub from ingame money if you're okayish at it. My friend says between 6 hours (Incursions) and 16 hours (mining) is what he needs to 'invest' monthly.


Bulletstorm -- yes. Method: Inputting code normally worked for me, YMMV

Huh. That's odd. The Bulletstorm key that I got months ago and couldn't redeem on Origin and was refused by an Origin CSR just activated without any problems.

Also worked for my preorder copy, *now*. At launch it sure did not. Thanks.

I believe that it is deal of the week and should be valid until 10/06/2012. If you look at http://www.amazon.co..._rd_i=979455011 it says it is deal of the week so I assume the usual Sunday to Saturday. If not I am sure Tony will correct me tomorrow and let us know the valid dates of the deal.

[quote name='MC Kage']I'm guessing these are all Origin based... shit gives me nightmares. I want all these games but Origin is horrible. Would love to have on Steam tho esp. Mirror's Edge, that sells it to me for sure.

Also, what's the word on NBA 2K13/Steam-DRM?[/QUOTE]

[quote name='MysterD']Curious - do you guys have any NON-STEAM versions of NBA2K13?[/QUOTE]


[quote name='MysterD']EA does NBA Live series (which got cancelled again this year, BTW).
2K does NBA 2K series.

2K games sometimes use Securom, sometimes use Steam.
[shrug]
That's why I'm asking.[/QUOTE]

The game absolutely activates on Steam, we won't even be distributing a build, only a Steam Key. Go tell your NBA loving friends to come pre-order the game!

[quote name='mnemnoch']Tony,

Regarding Nba 2k13, why is it the release of the digital version is Oct. 16 while the physical disk is Oct. 2?[/QUOTE]

[quote name='jimmywolf13']retail store don't like too compete for selling a game since digital can be cheaper they want force people into store too increase their profit[/QUOTE]

[quote name='vince_carter']I'd rather wait and not get a buggy POS like last year. They raaarely patch the PC version.[/QUOTE]

This got pushed back to at least 10/16.

Burning, Flaming, Reflecting Bundle Origin Activation Questions:

[quote name='kesker']Bulletstorm
Burnout Paradise
Mercenaries 2
Mirror's Edge
The Saboteur

I also would like to know this,are these all origin keys Tony?[/QUOTE]

[quote name='CheapLikeAFox']Yeah, these games can be registered on Origin except for Bulletstorm I believe (not too sure about Mercenaries either). I've heard some people say they've had to chat with Origin support to get Saboteur to work as well. But all of them are playable by DLing the install files from Amazon and installing outside of Origin just using the serial provided.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='r9800pro']Same here

Played it twice and totally loved it

The version Amazon sells is not Origin redeemable but with a little chat with Origin support, they will register it for you and if you're lucky enough they can even give you another key for the Limited Edition

Saboteur from Amazon does register on Origin though, I did it myself

As for Sleeping Dogs new price, hell, even at full $49.99, it is worth every penny. The game is one of the best games that were released recently. Period[/QUOTE]

[quote name='TraBuch']Didn't work for me when I bought that bundle months ago. Douchebag customer service dude I chatted with kept telling me to take a picture of the serial key and the box or else he couldn't do anything. He didn't seem to understand the concept of buying an online code.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='BernardoOne']So, Tony, how is the situation on the Strategy First bundle? :)[/QUOTE]

[quote name='UW_Shocks']In addition to the above, any idea of how much the Strat-First Bundle will cost and how many games it will come with?
I'm definitely buying the Strat-First and 1C bundles, but trying to see if I have enough funds for the EA Pack.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='TraBuch']Oh, and Tony, any plans for getting the PC version of The Amazing Spider-Man on Amazon?[/QUOTE]

[quote name='r9800pro']Bulletstorm or The Saboteur ?

If it is Bulletstorm then yes, you'll need 2-3 tries to make Origin Support register it for you because what Amazon sells is the GFWL key, not Origin key but a screenshot of your Amazon account with the key should be a good idea

Origin chat help has gone really bad lately with all those India reps (no offense intended)



It is already on Amazon :

http://www.amazon.co...er-man download[/QUOTE]

[quote name='nategator']So do we have any consensus on which games are able to be registered on Origin and which are not?

From looking at the posts, it appears that right now we know:

Bulletstorm -- yes. Method: screenshot of key on My Games List with Amazon, may require multiple attempts.

Saboteur -- yes? Method ???

Burnout Paradise -- yes. Method ???

Mercenaries 2 -- ????

Mirror's Edge -- yes. Method ???

Could some folks that purchased the bundle or individual games from Amazon in the past help us fill in the blanks? Many thanks.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='UW_Shocks']EA has a list of games that activate on Origin: https://help.ea.com/...-redemption-faq

Burnout, Mirror's Edge, and Saboteur all are on that list. That means Bulletstorm [GFWL] and Mercenaries 2 do not activate on Origin [maybe they can be by badgering EA Support].

Found this link: https://help.ea.com/...-code-in-origin
Says to contact EA support to have an agent add Bulletstorm to your account.

I would refer agents to that link if they refuse to add Bulletstorm to your account.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='golfer']This, I posted a fairly long review on this game on the EA sale page, nobody has responded to it yet. I have it on origin and the online aspect of it works.



Thanks for the update, even if it wasn't directed at my couple of questions on it.[/QUOTE]

My EA Rep informs me that ALL of the games in the bundle should now activate on Origin successfully. If they don't Origin CS should get it sorted for you quickly.

[quote name='espy605']Any chance of Amazon matching Battlefield 3 for $10 from GameStop Downloads?

http://impulsedriven...ales/spotlight/[/QUOTE]

We'll have BF3 for $10 one day this weekend. We'll also have the Ultimate Shortcut Pack for 75% off as well.

Popcap bundle says it requires Origin. Is that a new thing? I don't recall those games requiring Origin in the past.

I already have them on Steam and as mentioned PvZ is going to be free anyway for Halloween so not such a great deal but I'm just curious on the Popcap/Origin thing.

I wonder if people will be able to harass EA reps to activate the Popcap games on Origin now.


Requiring Origin is a new thing, but probably should have been expected since EA absorbed PopCap last year.

NBA 2K13 Questions:
The game absolutely activates on Steam, we won't even be distributing a build, only a Steam Key.

It's not like NBA2K13 requires Steam flat-out. At retail, it'll be Non-Steam, AFAIK.
A real bummer - especially since for NBA2K12, you gave consumers options for either Non-Steam Version or Steam version...

Since NBA2K12 is now going out of date and getting old with NBA2K13 coming out VERY soon, anytime soon NBA2K12 might hit the cheap (like how it was $5 on GameFly in the end of August)?

EDIT:

I'm working on something for next month.

Look forward to seeing what you guys come up w/ for Max Payne 3 PC...
