double dipped on Saints Row. That game is fantastic.


The second one is on discount also, highly unstable PC port but surprisingly much better than SR3.

FYI...You can get the five dollar promotional credit for downloading the FREE Dungeon Siege 3 demo. Just had the credit e-mailed to me.

Do i have to download or just "buy" it

Just "buy" it. I have like ten already. :D

I don't know if it works on the "Game Connect" stuff but it is working on all free demos.

Thank you for your purchase from Amazon.com. It is our pleasure to let you know that you have earned a $5 credit toward the purchase of select game downloads starting 1/1/2012 and good through 1/31/2012.



Should be 2013 instead of 2012.

THIS!!!

I bought SR: The Third earlier in Mid-July; AND Prototype Pack when last Friday when was part of the GameSpot-Amazon DVG Friday, as well.

I don't expect a $5 promo code b/c it was bought before this Promo hit - but, $5 coupon codes being sent our way would be a nice surprise! :D


It would be better if Tony applies the promotional codes to those who bought applicable games after he announced that the $5 codes will happen again. :D Though i'm not saying we're entitled for it.

Tony I would like to report a "hole" in your system regarding the $5 promotional code. Anyone can actually download a demo and still receieve the $5. I'm not sure if this is intended or a glitch in the system. To fellow cheapassgamers, please don't regard this as a kill joy move. I did this because I don't want Tony to lose his job. :(

Well, "$5 off" is a bit different from "$20 off" and the codes aren't good until January so I guess Amazon has time to track and invalidate them if they so choose. So not as bad but I don't want to abuse Tony's work on our behalf.

What was the EA incident? I saw somebody mentioned 20 dollar credits but I don't remember hearing that.

Talking of demos, how do you get them out of your Amazon Games Library? I've downloaded
a f ew in the past and I don't like seeing them in my games list. Is there a way to delete them
or do I need to contact Amazon CS?

Yeah, if these weren't supposed to be for demos (probably weren't), they can just void them really. Most of us probably won't mind assuming we're half reasonable folks and I'd rather not see the prices in Jan be $5 more just because of this.

I do think this promo gets a lot of new people on Amazon DVG since this was the promotion which sorta started all my buying here.

I don't think it's Tony doing it and probably someone on the backend just made it apply to all products rather than doing a search for products > 0.01 cents (or some other number).

EA had an offer to some people to do a survey and get a code for $20 off a game on the Origin store. But they used one universal code and it was leaked. And they didn't protect themselves from the code being reused so people could keep using it over and over on more games. So, essentially, all the ($20 or less) EA games on the Origin store were free for a day or so until they finally pulled the coupon code.

There's more details than that but that's the crux of it.

That'd be a good idea, yes.

A "hide section" like Origin has would be a decent way, for those who want to section off certain games to be hidden.

And yeah - you could always look at what's in your hidden section...and move them back to be into the "show section", if you need.

Bwahahahahahahahaha! Some people probably felt guilty about this until they played ME3. Will say though...20 bucks a pop...ouch.

I'm going to go with the opposite approach. If Tony wants to green light this, I'll happily go hog wild. Until then, I'd rather not be part of the problem (if there is one).

Amusingly, last year I bought Cryostatis for $1.75 during the sale, got a $5 coupon which I used on a $4.99 copy of Assassin's Creed and felt like I was totally sticking it to The Man :lol:

That would be nice. Already purchased 5 Prototype packs and 5x $5 promo credit would be awesome

On the other hand I got my Amazon account put on hold again for pre-ordering a game ! Same thing happened 10 days ago and I verified everything with Amazon and they fixed the issue and though that would not happen again specially that I already made many successful purchases after that :cry:

ME3 is great, if you ask me.
It's the last 5-10 minutes that are pretty terrible - and well, that can't take away everything that the other 50+ amazing hours that I spent w/ that game gave me.
While I absolutely understand and agree that the ending(s) were terrible {rushed, felt incomplete, lacking closure, felt too brief, etc} -- the rest of the game was stellar, for the most part.

I wasn't as fond of ME1 as a lot of other people were. I didn't hate...was just ok, I thought. The second one I thought was kind of ho-hum until the assault at the end, which I thought was fantastic. Still have to play the third one. I've avoided spoilers like the plague.
