I find these discussions interesting, but out of respect for Tony let's keep this thread limited to deal talk. I doubt he wants to trek through pages of posts about Steam to find questions or information relevant to him.

I don't think Amazon DVG has signed a deal to sell any Valve games...

The completionist in me only needs these COD games -- COD: Black Ops and World At War.


Eh jus sayin' lol. You've never played BO?

The enter button would like a word with you.

My opinions are based upon the facts and my personal experience. I have no problem supporting and substantiating them. If you want to refute them, then feel free to try. Your throwing labels at me like "bigotry" and "troll" is a cop out.


What facts are your opinions based on? You haven't given one single fact since you started. Even if your opinions have some legitimacy to them, you present them with so much vitriol that it makes you seem bitter.

That SquareEnix bundle is amazing, but I already own everything in it :\ A few of my friends should be picking it up when they see it go live and realize I wasn't making it up.

Seriously didn't mean to stir the pot in here suggesting that Amazon get their own client!

Just thought it would be cool is all. I know Amazon (as a company) have a large amount of resources, talent, and bandwidth - even more so than Valve - so I thought I would at least make the suggestion. To the best of my knowledge, the Amazon digital download service has even more titles than Steam. Call me lazy all you want, I just thought it would be cool to have a client I could use as a download manager / game manager.

So yes, let's keep the Steam bashing to a minimum out of a respect for Tony. Thanks guys!

I wouldn't take any blame for it, man. Some people have their own agenda and use anything as a catalyst to unleash it. I wouldn't mind a Desura like client - meaning it would be optional. Or an update game page. Gamersgate doesn't have it's own client, but I find their shelf/game list easier to navigate than Amazon.

@TONY
So, does Amazon DVG got any big deals planned for NEXT WEEK? ;)


Aside from the Squeenix Bundle? Nothing yet.

Thanks for the price match on W: EE Tony! I just bought it now from Amazon :D

On Steam the Game of Thrones bundle is $17.49 which contains both A Game of Thrones - Genesis, Game of Thrones while on Amazon Game of Thrones alone cost $17.49 I guess I'll wait for a better deal from Amazon on this.


We'll have a bundle for $9.99 in the near future.

Speaking of sports games, it would be nice to see a repeat of the EA Classics bundle that ran not to long ago with Madden 08 and NHL 09 for $5 (or even cheaper?). I totally spaced and missed that one.


Yep we'll have this again in November.

I can't help but laugh at anyone who thinks for a second that any of these companies actually are on your side somehow. They're businesses. They want to make money, that's it. Is Amazon any different? No, the only difference is that we have the good fortune of having a sales guy who takes his job seriously and is a nice dude.

There's no reason for Steam to do anything differently. They are making a ridiculous amount of money, therefore there is no reason to change anything. Changes cost money, so why spend money on them if everyone is already buying your stuff? It's not that complicated. It would take a massive user boycott for anything to change (Steam strike, anyone?), and that's not going to happen.

That said, Steam offers a pretty good service regardless of their flaws. There's not much use in complaining about it, though I understand the negativity.


1. I'm a marketing guy not a sales guy :)
2. I do this for more reasons than just "I want to affect change in our bottom line". If that were the case I wouldn't do things like meet up with you guys for lunch, play video games with you, etc. etc. I just like the Video Game community and enjoy being a part of it...even though you're all insane :).

Steam's CYA/SSA policies are less than ideal for the consumer, especially if you cross the line into the grey areas. And the landscape they've formed is very different from how PC gamers used to take ownership of their games.

But to call Steam a shit service and claim that Valve releases its own games lacking in content—when in fact so much is added post facto and for free—just shows an illogically prejudiced and bitter perspective.

But hey, Amazon. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of their current digital library setup, but I like their prices.

Unfortunately we don't match bundles as they take time and resources to create, so unless we have them in existence we can't justify that time to make new ones just for matches.

Example, the guy who would make that bundle is currently making the Squeenix bundle.

Any possibility of a sale on BF3 Premium? I got a $10 copy from the last sale but I've played the crap out of the vanilla maps on 360 so I'm hoping for a good deal on the maps at some point. Keep up the good work with the sales Tony, I'm looking forward to Black Friday, although I don't think my wallet will be too thrilled

Tony, i know this is probably not your department. Could you please inquire to bring back the digital store for consoles (ex. Playstation Network or Xbox Live Content).

I only ask because i have purchased content from amazon's digital store and it is flawless. Other retailers are falling WAY short in this department. I don't even know where to begin from inefficiency to overall poor customer service.

I know you focus on the PC market, but if you can shoot up the ladder that everyone else is pretty much failing on the console digital downloads front.

I think the issue has a lot to do with people seeing companies as either greedy and money grubbing or benevolent angels with nothing in between. Amazon and Steam are made up of people who have all sorts of complex motivations for the things they do. They are companies, so of course they are interested in being profitable. They want to continue doing what they do and perhaps explore exciting new things as well. At the same time, why would money be the only thing driving a company when it is run and maintained by a group of (probably) decent people? Certainly the bottom line is important, even crucial, but that doesn't automatically make everyone looking to turn a profit an ancient evil greed monster out to destroy you.

2. I do this for more reasons than just "I want to affect change in our bottom line".

I think an optional client is totally fine and wholly support this idea. I don't see why people would complain about something being optional but I guess people will find anything to complain about.

Anyway, Amazon has a ways to go before they can get to something like a client so I don't think anyone needs to worry about that happening soon. They can't even figure out how to sell a bunch of keys at once for 1C. :-P

True. However, I find it easier to access my games now, with Steam and other services, than I ever did back in the days of discs (or disks) in boxes.

Good customer service and being considered consumer friendly are great ways to be profitable -- it costs roughly 6 times as much to acquire a new customer as it does to retain an existing one, which is more likely when you have good customer service. Those satisfied customers are more likely to tell their friends, and who doesn't love free advertising from credible sources? Kudos to Amazon for realizing this and giving us someone as awesome as Tony, who no doubt does a better job because he's actually a gamer as well. :)
