This is really crappy of Amazon. They were 50% off on Labor Day. I purchased all five of these. Fear 3 was $15, Fear 2 was $7.50, Fear was $5, Batman AC was $15, Batman AA GOTY was $10. It was a huge deal because WB had just joined Amazon and the games joined the 50% off promotion. That ended up being $52.50.. now they're $20? I could've saved $32?! I feel completely screwed over, especially since that was a holiday sale and this is just a regular sale. I'd shrug it off if it was a few bucks, but $32 is a lot.
I've only been able to install AA since they're all so heavy on the disk space (Fear 1 + expansions is 17+ gb).
I understand that, and yeah, they're fantastic games (I've played them on console), but I have only been able to install AA because of bandwidth limits (thanks Comcast!) and played the intro of it. It just feels reversed, it feels like the Labor Day sale should've been the packs for $9.99 each and the weekly sale should've been these at the sale prices I paid. Am I supposed to avoid the holiday sales now because there's probably going to be a better sale a few weeks after?
I hope it does work on preorders soon, I'd like to snag Hitman Absolution.
I hear your feedback, but I'm curious, what time period do you think is acceptable for spacing between promotions? Our general rule of thumb is 1 month. Additionally, it makes more sense to launch products at a lower discount, see how customers respond, and then plan future promotions based on that response.
When I say "it makes sense" I am speaking from a statistical/financial/logical perspective.
Curious what the general thought here is, should we not be promoting products within 2 months of each other? Does that mean that Black Friday discounts should be the exact same as Christmas Sale Discounts?
