Sorry should have been clearer. The sentiment around the coupons fot about 10 pages yesterday way "not cool I would have waited to buy the THQ stuff." Same concept here.

Cheers,
Tony



Seriously Tony?? We all have to pay for a couple of wuzzies that threw a fit over a few bucks??

Those people should be banned from this thread dammit!

Imo, the issue is with how EA treated this coupon issue, raising most prices so that even with a $5 coupon I can't see anything worth buying other than the Burning Storming Reflecting pack (but I already own 3 of those).

Damnit! The complainers ruined it for everyone :cry:

and now I'm turning into a complainer! lol



Don't get me started on complainers!

Spoiler
Also I'm stuck in Orlando Airport and it sucks :(.

Cheers
Tony



Ick, at least it's a nice little airport. Tampa greyhound station on New Year's Day is completely another matter.

Spoiler
I actually wanted to play it. I guess I'll just have to pick it up next time it goes on sale.



All this game playing talk is really invading the buying threads. ^_~ I blame the Steam "sale."

I picked up DS2 Season Pass for THQ since I don't have any DLC for that game yet, and the burning, whatever...5 pack for EA (Mercenaries 2, Mirror's Edge, Bulletstorm, Burnout Paradise, The Sabateur) The EA pack I've never really wanted any of those games, but hey it was a good deal and I'm sure I can get some enjoyment out of them.



Bulletstorm is a fun slightly crass romp. Burnout Parasise is great. Mirror's Edge is interesting -- you haven't played anything quite like it (and the first? game to feature PhysX). No experience with the others.

Yeah but I need to format all the links and such. I'll post tomorrow when I'm back in Seattle. If I don't pass out on the flight I'll format offline on the plane and do it when I get home.

I'm pretty tired though so this might not happen in flight.

More information benefits everyone. Also remember companies test stuff all the time, you all just have someone to tell you about what we're testing and why.


My only suggestion is if it is possible to create a separate thread to discuss feelings and impacts about deals, and keep this one about actual deals. It's kind of hard to wade through all the posts complaining about this (not just the ones about complaints, but the ones complaining about complaints).

I just want to find the best deals for the current promotions!

I got my 2k promo as well. I really can't find much use for this since I already PAID MORE for the stuff before the coupon <laugh>. If someone still needs Bioshock 1&2 for cheap, let me know and maybe I'll pick up Spec Ops.



Spec Ops is totally worth it. The story is top notch. I happily paid $20 for that pack.

i agree with this statement, i paid full price for digital saint row 3,Darksider 2, Borderlands 2 an X com when they first came out, few month later their price drop a lot but i don't mind i got too enjoy those game at price i thought was worth it



Full price?!? Lots of CAGs pre-ordered but none of them paid full price. Tony had a nice BL2 pre-order promo in this very thread. (DS2 as well iirc)

And oddly enough, I won't complain because I thought they were worth $7.50 when I bought them, that was the price that I as an adult who makes my own decisions chose to pay and I'm not going to whine about it if someone gets them for $2.50 next month.

That's life. If I really didn't think they were worth $7.50 I wouldn't have bought them but I did and I am perfectly content with that decision.

I also think letting a few vocal complainers on the internet influence pricing decisions is just nuts. No matter what you do someone will be unhappy. That's life.

I am also quite unconvinced on this whole macro level thing. I think people that sit around camped out at the computer and watch every damned price shift are a minority. They seem like the majority here because that's the nature of this forum but most people I know don't obsess over price differences like people do here.

But it's not my job to worry about these sorts of micro/macro customer feelings so I concede there may be factors I am not seeing.


i agree, its only 5 bucks guys 7.50 is pretty darn cheap for some good games. pretty sad how people want it lower than it already is. how is amazon and the developers going to make profit then..fucked up christmas spirit

You're new here, huh? You don't need to look further than the OP for that. Sure it might get updated minutes, even hours later, but that's all you need. And seriously without feelings involved why even bother with video games?

There are plenty of times when Tony doesn't update it, or the deal is about a pricematch which doesn't make it to the OP. I also like reading posts by users explaining why this deal is better than that deal.

Well, I might be part of the vocal minority on this issue, BUT...

I say get some rest. You were up late last night making sure the coupons went out smoothly despite some last-minute technical issues. I think you and your dev did great work!

We can handle not knowing about a deal 3 days in advance. This time. ;)

Sure, remember I don't own this thread or forum, Cheapy does. He and I have a great relationship but I'm not going to dictate what people can and can't do in any thread, even one I provide most of the updates for.

The only exception is when we get trolls in here or people start calling names. Then I say something, but even then I reach out to Cheapy either before or immediately after.

If you want an "Amazon feedback thread" on the sale site, I'd love to help field questions and take feedback.

i agree, its only 5 bucks guys 7.50 is pretty darn cheap for some good games. pretty sad how people want it lower than it already is. how is amazon and the developers going to make profit then..fucked up christmas spirit


To be clear, I don't think our profitability should ever be a non-Amazon employee's concern (so you guys). That's my job, you all should be focused on getting the best content you can at the best value, however you define value. Some define it as straight amount paid for a game, others define it as getting to play day 1 with everyone else, others want all DLC at launch or when on promotion, etc.

We'll worry about profit, and I'll try to be as transparent about it as possible while we do :).

I think you missed my previous post. To summarize:

You're looking at this at the Micro level as "people on CAG complained so there isn't a price match". We're looking at it from a Macro level and want to find out "is this sentiment something widespread and impacting the business?".

We'll wrap a battery of analysis around people who purchased the THQ products from us prior to the couponing and how they responded over time and do the same with Syndicate purchasers. This will give a quantified look at how this type of promotion impacts the business long term.

Again, we're collecting data not shooting from the hip, and the end goal is to create a better experience for the customer.

Cheers,
Tony

It still seems extremely silly and nonsensical, no matter what analytical spin is put on it. Something goes on sale, people buy it, later it goes on sale for cheaper, those people complain. This is standard fare since the dawn of the digital gaming age; does it really take that much analysis to figure that out?

But alright, like Mooby said, it is what it is. It "is" stupid, but oh well.
