Yeah, I cheated on Tony. I gave Amazon a day to match, but when the 20% off code came up and I saw two relatively new games for under $6 a piece with Steam keys, I bit.
I did. The Darkness 2 and Spec Ops for less than $12 is pretty hot. Plus, I just found out with that purchase that Gamefly doesn't charge tax (unlike Origin)! If the keys had not been Steam (or Origin), I probably wouldn't have done it, but especially with Steam, I feel Steam is Steam is Steam.
If Tony puts a $5 deal on either of these games, I won't sweat the ~$1 I paid extra for either, but I'll be glad for others who get those deals. This is what I was talking about the other day when I said that I have a threshold where I judge the deal great enough that I won't be upset when a better deal shows up tomorrow, next month, or six months from now.
Because there's little chance of the deal being more than a few dollars since I only paid $6. But hey, Tony, feel free to prove me wrong!
Then, make sure you play Spec Ops: The Line NOW. :P That way, your ONE whole dollar worth b/c you didn't have to wait to play; and b/c you didn't back-log that from GameFly and then Tony came up w/ an even better deal while your game is STILL untouched!
Tony has A LOT of GREAT deals here on a REGULAR basis that are VERY often trend-setting and others copy or try to better, I might add - so he's expected to miss or not PM some the other digital services got going on. He ain't going to win them all - especially since he seems to win MOST of them. :P
I'm also on the fence now here w/ Spec Ops: The Line - do I buy from GameFly now; or wait for Amazon DVG to PM; or Amazon DVG to tell us they got a better deal coming soon?
Thankfully, this is a GameFly weekend deal, so I can wait a little bit...
Thankfully, I'm still working on and playing Diablo 3 here, so I can wait a little bit...
