Really? I certainly had no luck doing so.


Open a support ticket and send them this:

Either you or Valve has the right to terminate or cancel your Account or a particular Subscription at any time. You understand and agree that the cancellation of your Account or a particular Subscription is your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute with Valve.

I understand that I will need to acquire a new activation code and/or repurchase the game if I want to have it back in my Steam Library.

Easy.

Someone (I think on reddit) said that Tony's scared to match the THQ sale because of that 25% coupon floating around.

Back in January, Tony had no problem matching a steam sale for Medal Of Honor @ $5. At the time, there were $5 off coupons that could be used on MoH. So people were able to get the game for free.

On the subject of the 25% coupon though, does anybody know if there was a deadline for when it expires?

No deadline but he said it's a test thing and can be pulled at any time.

Tony X-Com has a $15 credit when you pre-order the PS3 and 360 version on Amazon. Any chance we can get this with the PCDD?

Are you sure Saints Row 3 is supposed to be 75% off? I see here that they are planning 66% off:

http://www.thq.com/u...am_weekend_sale

So a 25% off code would make it $9.89. A good deal, close to Amazon's previous $10 deal. BUT GMG did once offer it for $7.50 on September 11, after their 25% off code: http://slickdeals.ne...igital-download

Additionally, Homefront was already $4 on GMG recently (75% off + 20% off code) and I cannot remember the lowest Metro got during GMG code stacking but it was pretty cheap, so while a price match would be welcome it's not unprecedented for these titles to be discounted below $5.

Stacking the 25% and price matching Steam would bring Amazon's sale in line with what GMG has done.

Just in case Tony is getting any pushback internally or with THQ ;)

Interesting. I didn't cite anything, but I did ask for a game to be removed (due to getting a refund from Amazon) and was told no need by Steam support.

I'd be okay with Saints row the third at 9.89. I missed all the good sales on it.

A user on these forums sells a Steam tradeable copy that comes with all the extras for $35, his name is JakeNome. I've bought from him a few times and other CAG's have as well with no problems at all.

For those wondering how/why people are selling XCOM so cheap, it's ~$19 from the Steam store in Russia and the game has no region restrictions. Users there buy it from Steam and resell it for $28-30 to make a quick profit.

Wait, so are all the titles in this bundle activateable on Origin though this method without having to harass customer service? I may have to get it if so.

The only one from the bundle that you need to use that link to activate it on Origin is Mercenaries 2. All the rest can be activated in the client.

That works. I haven't ever thought of selling it. I just assumed no one would want to buy it over $10. I'll try that and if I happen to get the $15+ credit too, oh happy day.

True but although it is not region locked, it is still tagged (RU or something else) because the Sub ID is different. There is also another "locked" version of the game that was sold/will be sold at one point

Region Free: http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/16558

Locked: http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/16583

It is too risky

Yes, it'll say "XCOM Enemy Unknown (RU) PrePurchase" as the first line in the description section. The locked version might be what Steam starts selling once the game is released, but the prepurchase will remain unlocked.

I do agree that it's slightly risky (and against the Steam TOS since you're bypassing regional pricing).

Yeah I'd love to see a price match on Spec Ops: The Line. For $7.49 I'm definitely not going to pass it up this time, but I'd rather give Amazon my money if possible. :D

Thanks for clarification. Steam is so complicated when it comes to region restrictions so I always stick with (ROW : Rest Of World) or untagged games in trading or buy from my own store
