Are ANY of the Ubisoft games activated on Steam? Or are they all Uplay?

Some of the smaller titles (eg: Shoot Many Robots) are Steamworks.

Hmm, I received multiple promo e-mails so I was under the assumption I could use the promo $5 credit on as many games as I received e-mails for, much like the $5 promo credit that we'll be able to use next month. I was going to buy AC:R Gold and Rayman Origins since I received about 3 Ubisoft promo e-mails but it looks like the $5 credit only applied to AC:R Gold when I bought it and now it won't apply an additional $5 credit to Rayman Origins. I also tried to buy both DLC packs for Kingdoms of Amalur and it only applied a $5 credit to one of them. Well, this was a tad disappointing.



The multiple emails was a glitch.

From the 1st post...



Coupon Update:

Alright, update from the developer here:

1. All orders are currently flowing through our system and to your inboxes/amazon accounts - This is what we've been working on all day, getting things unstuck.

2. The expectation is that you should receive an email within the next several hours. I'd give it a solid 5 and then let me know if you still haven't received.

3. Thanks for the patience. I'm adding this update to the OP.

As a reminder:

1. Customers who purchased THQ/EA/Ubisoft/2K Digital Video games from Amazon will get a $5 credit to use on more games from the corresponding publisher.
2. Coupons for EA/THQ/UBisoft may be used on 12/25 only and only for products GREATER THAN $5.
3. Coupons for 2K may be used from 12/26-12/31 and only on products $9.99 AND ABOVE.
4. Customers may use 1 coupon per account per publisher this means if you purchased 1 or 30 games from each publisher you are still entitled to/eligible for 1 credit from each publisher.
5. If you purchased a 2K product on 12/24 your credit will be delayed as we need to pull information out of our system, which won't propagate for a few hours.

I think AC3 is one of the few UbiSoft UPlay games Tony has that uses Steam.; here's AC3 Not-Steam (UPlay Only).
Keep in mind - if you buy a Steam-key for a UPlay required game, you're gonna have to deal w/ BOTH Steam and UPlay.

Some Indies from UbiSoft might use Steam.
RUSE requires Steam, though.

EDIT:

Some of the smaller titles (eg: Shoot Many Robots) are Steamworks.

Didn't know that about Shoot Many Robots! Thanks! :D

If I buy a 2k game such as this http://www.amazon.co...56451418&sr=1-1

do I get the 5$ coupon towards max payne 3 today? or do I get it on the 26?


i just did the bioshocks 2 pack less than an hour ago.

got the 2k coupon today, but the coupon is valid for tomorrow 12/26-12/31.

wasnt expecting it be show up so quickly. i had 10 coupon related messages in the email.

also did a THQ dlc to try for the coupon right afterwards. no luck on the coupon for acquisition and use today. maybe itll show up in a few hours or something, but im betting thats unlikely as has been previously mentioned a few pages back in the thread.

I can't figure out what to spend my THQ coupon on. Between the Medley, the DSII Pack, the Prototype Pack and the humble bundle I may have everything I want THQ-wise from Amazon. :(

Anyone else not get any of the promotional emails? Been waiting patiently and I more than qualify, yet not even one email has come though, all I got was the email for the Video Game Gold Box . This is kinda cruddy, I have spent a great deal this past year on Amazon Direct Downloads.


I got already mine for Ubi, EA, and THQ.

I'm STILL waiting on 2K Games coupon for tomorrow - since I bought Civ 4 Complete and Civ 5 earlier this year.

So guys, I bought, downloaded and installed Rayman:Origins ($5 with coupon :D) and I don't see any sign that Tages was installed along with the game. Did some basic Google searching but I can't find any of the files they say that Tages should install. Also, I was never asked to manually enter my Serial Number, but I mainly buy from Steam (through Amazon mostly) so I don't know if that's normal.

Any idea how I could figure out if Tages was installed? Would really love this to be a DRM Free version like Steam's :D



Haven't tried this program, maybe someone else can attest to it being useful or not?

THQ


Thanks.
Woah, glad I did that cause I didn't realize it was valid for preorders too..... now South Park, Metro or Company of Heroes 2 with my initial lean towards COH.

Update: Technically went towards COH2, but placed a South Park preorder at that price too....

SO I cant get max payne 3 for 9.99 I see.
so if it is the same price as steam, is there any point in getting it from amazon?
New to the amazon thing, saw it gave some bonus in January but I dont think I would use that. I mean should I just wait and see if it is 14.99 in january since i have a 5$ coupon already?

how does the editor thing work, they pick the top sales from now and repeat them?


If it is the same price the only reason I could think of is if you have any additional Amazon credit or something to use.

Highly doubtful seeing as how everything has been so cheap from them this year! But if anyone wants Saints Row complete or Darksders bundle I still have my THQ discount to use .

Part of me is tempted by the Guild Wars 2 deal today because of all the stuff I've read in the last few days about how great it is. Don't really have the gaming time for another (or really any) MMO at the moment. Also, wasn't a huge fan of the first one (and strangely, the inability to jump annoyed the crap outta me). Any thoughts? My "concern" is that it won't go down to this price for a long time again because buying the packages is how NCSoft gets its money to run this game.

Because a lot of people can get trade credit from Amazon, or some people prefer it since Amazon has way better customer service than Steam does.

Editor's choice games don't really have a defined way of being chosen, or reduced in price, it's kind of a gamble but in previous years a lot of games were added and I believe some were even free.

  • hit windows key
  • type tages
  • alternatively; type rayman
  • left click on results (presumably the first one)


This was the first thing I tried, and searching for Tages didn't give any results. Searching for Rayman doesn't give any Tages related results either. I wasn't sure if Tages was supposed to come up in the results though, but from your post, I assume it should have if it was installed. Checked the ReadMe and it has no mention of Tages or any DRM.

I think it's pretty much safe to say that the version of Rayman:Origins that Amazon is selling *should* be DRM Free, at least as far as I can tell from the one I downloaded from them..

Guess only Tony can confrim/deny this now unless anyone has any other ideas for me to check for myself?

UPDATE:

Haven't tried this program, maybe someone else can attest to it being useful or not?

http://pid.gamecopyworld.com/


Tried this and here's the result:

Scanning -> C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Rayman Origins\Rayman Origins.exe
File Type : 32-Bit Exe (Subsystem : Win GUI / 2), Size : 7869832 (0781588h) Byte(s)

Scanned a Steam game (Spec Ops) and it successfully reported the Steam Client API as the DRM, so I'll assume the program is working correctly.

Suppose this is good enough proof (for me at least) that Amazon's Rayman Origins is DRM Free. If you already own/don't want Assassin's Creed, there's nothing better to use your Ubisoft coupon on, so if DRM was holding you back, you might be in luck :)

Are there still more deals to come for today or are the 12/25-12/27 and 12/25 deals in the OP the only ones?

12/25 (there will be more and they will be impactful, I’ll continue to release details as we get closer to Christmas. The reason is that we have several high impact deals that we’re still discussing price point on.):


Not sure if I understood 'impactful' wrong, but for the most part, today's deals seem to be same (both game- and price-wise) we had during the Cyber Monday sale, no?

I didn't get any of the publisher coupon emails but I dropped an EA game and a THQ game into my cart and both showed a $5 promotional discount. So I wouldn't sweat the emails.

Of course, EA has nothing really on sale for $9.99+ worth applying the discount to and THQ has been mined pretty extensively the last few months but the thought is there.

Ah, I see. Oh well, looks like I'll wait for another lucky day when I can get the other Kingdoms of Amalur DLC for $5 so I can finally complete it.
