TONY, I bought the 2k mega pack cause you said it all activated on steam, but Bioshock 1, Civ IV, and the stronghold collection didn't come with activation codes, and Bioshock 2's code doesnt work at all. WTH man?

Anyone else have this issue with this bundle?


I didn't, but im sure Tony will have the answer...

Usually found right above or below the System Requirments box:

Spoiler


There is no standard, they just put it anywhere in the item description.

The only way to be certain you find it or not is to do a text search of "steam" on the item's page.


Well, it says either on top, bottom, middle, or system requirement box.

So yeh, just CTRL+F and type "steam"


Thank you, all. Seems like they would make that information a little more accessible.

I'm sure this has already been asked, but do the $5 credits for January stack or is it a -$5 per order with multiple orders type deal?

Easiest way to see if a game needs Steam on Amazon's page is to hit cntrl+f and type in steam

I believe they are trying their best to standardize it now. On newer games like BL2 at the top they have:

Borderlands 2
by 2K Games
Rated: Mature | DRM: Steam

So it's the item's name, pub, rating and DRM are the first four things you read.

Older games though, this standard isn't there yet. They may edit them eventually, or maybe never edit them at all. (Assuming it's even a new standard anyway.)

Just trying to clarify.

Only way to really be certain is CTRL+F "Steam"

"Qualifying codes for this promotion may only be used one at a time."

That's what the item descriptions say for every qualifying game, and the emails say with every purchase.

Sunasun, I hope you were just being facetious. It's on the page of every item that qualifies for the promo. And in every email post-purchase.

You can read it before you buy, and after you buy.

"Qualifying credits for this promotion may only be used one at a time."

Not to sound ungrateful, but doesn't that make the promotion a bit silly then, considering nearly all of the games for January would have been cheaper during the winter sale than taking $5 off their full price?

I assumed they wouldn't stack .. but $5 credit sounds different than $5 off your order ... just seems sort of counter-intuitive if something is currently $10 or $15 off right now.

The other way to look at it - would you consider it fair to be able to buy a bunch of $1 games for their coupons and end up getting $40+ games for free? Besides, give the Jan list of games a few more days. If it's like last year, they may end up being discounted before the coupons expire.

Some things will be better sales with the coupons though. For example Dark Souls was $15 with its Christmas sale, 18 now, and will be 13 with the coupon. So $2 cheaper than during Christmas. It's also a second chance for people who missed sales to not pay full price, and the games may even go on sale again during January. Some will be cheaper than they were during the sale, some will be the same, some will be more expensive.

For people looking for Kingdoms of Amalur, it will be the cheapest price yet, at $9.99 with the credit.

Last January I got Civ 5 for $3.99, Darkspore/Spore/NFS:Hot Pursuit for $2.99 each, and DNF for free with my promo credits.

I certainly wasn't complaining.

that would be awesome, amalur on its own has been under $10 a few times, but never with all of the dlc content.

Tony said it's highly unlikely.

Anyone knows if this pack is coming back on offer during January? It shows in the 2012 Editor's Choice list


Tony said that it would never come back.


^

edit: yeah that


Yeah it does. Which is odd and disappointing.


I'm pretty happy about it. :applause: The more people happy, the better, right?

Edit: Also, why be disappointed? The last time it was on sale, editor's choice hadn't even been mentioned. Why be disappointed when a deal is made accessible to more people? The price of the bundle isn't even known yet, so it could be worse anyway.


Hey guys,

I was using that pack as a placeholder for stuff that the $5 coupon would work on, specifically because it will likely never go live again.

One of our automated systems put it on that page, we'll get it off ASAP.

Tony

No gift cards are usually separate for different countries. .com gift cards don't work on .de etc
