Tony,

Steam just put Sim City 4 for 5.99. Can you get the hamsters on a price match?

http://store.steampo....com/app/24780/

PS: preference if you can pull off steam activation but I don't know if you have any super hamsters available

If you want the steam version of the game, why do you want Amazon to price match it? Why wouldn't you just buy it from Steam?

I'm genuinely surprised that Amazon hasn't set the precedent on a Crysis ME price yet. GameFly had it for $4.43 ages ago. Still $7 here?

Quickest way: Ctrl+F and search for Steam on the game's Amazon page.

Is it sad that I'm considering buying the Sega Genesis Classic Packs 1-4 separately instead of in the bundle so I get 4 credits instead of 1?


If you're completely uninterested in any of the contents of Classic Pack 5, then buying the other four packs individually is a fairly shrewd move. But Pack 5 costs more than the entire bundle; so if you want any of those games, you're better off buying the bundle.

The front page doesn't have a list of individual games on sale anymore; but there are quite a few games currently on sale in the $2 range. You can amass coupons pretty easily, if that's your game plan.

EDIT: Classic Pack 5 is at www.amazon.com/SEGA-Genesis-Classics-Series-Download/dp/B008H5323W/

Amazon doesn't decide the final sale price, the publisher does. Crysis ME probably had less sales on Gamefly than most other places so they lowered the price to help that distributor sell their product better.

Hey guys,

We aren't matching the flash deals due to their nature.

If I've missed any thus far feel free to just let me know again.

As for Game of Thrones deals, still getting final approvals.

a) I have an amazon credit card so I get 3% back

b) I want the 5 dollar coupon

That can only tell you if it is steam for sure. There are many games that register on steam but are not labeled as such. Please refrain from spreading misinformation.

Amazon prices seem be be hand-edited, so typically between midnight and 1AM PST, longer if they are swamped, say on Black Friday. By way of note, GamersGate also seems to hand edit sales in. In contrast Steam seems to have some scheduling system (but are prone to hand edits and fixing).

No, but it's so complex it would be better for you to google the info.

Hey Tony,

It's really cool to see NBA 2k13 discounted! But any hopes for cheap 2k12? $5 will be a killer deal and insta-buy for many people, plus there is a new game from the series already, it should be fine for the previous to be discounted :)

Negative, they are systematically changed for stuff we have planned deals on. PMs are also systematically done but when they get called out here I usually pop in and do them manually :).

Oh I know, just surprises me how long ago GameFly had that price and how Amazon hasn't been able to get close to it. I already bought it on GameFly, so I'm not complaining, just surprised at the price. Not even $5.

Because we all know Amazon typically sets the bar... lol.

Interesting. Thanks for that. I guess the cases that required manual intervention stick out in my mind. I remember refresh monkeying a few of your deals around 12:30-40 AM PST.

GamersGate is really quite the hoot to watch. You can refresh and see human-time 4 daily deals changing over. Sometimes with short lived pricing errors (too high or low). Given that it happens at 8AM in Brittan, it seems plausible.

Looking forward to Dark Souls:Prepare to Die =)
