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


Agreed. Id love to pick this up from amazon at this point. Bioshock 1 and 2 are 4.99 each. Im probably the only one that did not buy them at this price already though....

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

I believe Australian Steam had the SR3 franchise pack (so ~all the DLCs?) for $9 once ^_^
I paid $50 for the game plus the season pack & funtime pack as preorder bonuses, and then various further monies for DLC

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.

I don't think things that violate the Steam subscriber agreement (like re-selling Steam gifts) are a very good thing to promote here. Fortunately we also have insightful comments like yours and not just advertisements for RU gift buying like the posts before.

P.S.: I'd still consider it quite possible that the Russian Steam gift version will end up having some extra restriction applied on launch, it's happened before - like a limitation to being playable in Russian only or to only run from RU/CIS IPs. The Russian retail version will only run from Russian/CIS IPs.


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


I believe the 'Locked' one is a test version used internally ("ReleaseStateOverride" for both 16582 and 16583), and the real retail (with preorder bonuses?) will be 16376 :D

May I kindly request a PM on Spec Ops, Darkness II, and Civ 5 for $7.49 from gamefly.com.


Tony,
I fifth this motion, a PM would be amazing, been wanting Spec Ops pretty bad, and the others are great deals that should be matched too. I know you are already going to PM battlefield 3 tomorrow, so that is cool to.

So when can we see a $10 Skryim TRU pricematch?


Amazon DVG needs to sign Zenimax/Bethesda FIRST to a digital download distribution deal here...

Add another support to the Gamefly price match request for me. Would much rather deal with Amazon than go through with making a new account there. Either way, $7.49 is too good to pass on.

If Tony does actually price-match Spec Ops: The Line, would "OCTOFUN1" work on it? :P

Hey guys,

Email sent on the GF and Steam PMs. Like I said I'm currently OOTO (for any of you not on a beach right now I'm sorry!).

I'll check back in via mobile later today to see what's up. Happy Friday everyone!

Cheers,
Tony

Unless they revoke that code before the price match goes live, I don't see why not. They have allowed promo codes to stack with price matches in the past.

You rock. My 90 bux in amazon credit is itching to be burned. :-)

I live close to the beach... hope you are fishing. Fall is the best time of the year for it!! :-)

Understand Black Friday, but I'm going to start responding to these posts by asking you to name a couple of deals Steam has had that have been better than anything we've run since January...

Cheers,
Tony


Steam summer sale had Saint's Row the Third with ALL DLC for $13.29. That was never matched although I remember it being mentioned for Amazon's Labor Day sale. I guess it never went through. :P

Strangely, I've been buying a whole bunch of my digital games from Gamefly lately. With the "$5 Fridays" and then the "Weekend Sales"

In the past few weeks I've grabbed NBA2K12 for $5, Lego Harry Potter (s) at 75% off, same with Lego Batman 2 ($7.49) and now Spec Ops: the line for $7.49.

When I compare that to Steam (nothing since the summer sale) and even Amazon to an extent (excellent prices, but games I already own) Gamefly has been really good with prices lately.

Weird, eh?

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

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
:hot:


How do you tell how a game is tagged on Steam?
