I wouldn't get your hopes too high for the January Promo deals; although I do expect some great deals.

It's possible but most of the time last year didn't that result because of price matching with Steam?


Every single time a game was free, it was as a result of a price match. So while it could happen again, people shouldn't be counting on it.

If that's true, I'd still expect Hotline Miami to be free. I mean, what are the possibilities of that NOT being 50% off in January? I forgot the last time I saw that game at full price.

Not unless it's 50% off on Gamely or Gamestop because Steam already had Hotline Miami as a daily.

It could be 50% off as a daily after the winter sale has ended ;). Otherwise, I think the chances would be high for it to be 50% off on Gamestop/Gamefly too.

Final day of Steam sales is generally a "best of" type deal, where previous deals come back for the final day.

I don't think they did one for the Summer Sale since the deals were already repeating all sale long.

You must not have been around last January.. quite a few games were free after credit.

It is highly unlikely that these developers are going to let that happen though.

If that's true, I'd still expect Hotline Miami to be free. I mean, what are the possibilities of that NOT being 50% off in January? I forgot the last time I saw that game at full price.

You clearly have delusional expectations.

You may end up being correct, but the Xmas sale is the only one that's over two weeks long, and the last sale of the year, making it a little different...

LOL, I'm not even sure if it's up to the developers. Amazon probably eats the costs. If what The End says it true, they were free after getting PM'd, meaning the devs may not have known. My expectations aren't delusional, were you around last January? At least 5 or 6 games were free. Clearly the devs were ok with their game being added to the Editor's Choice list, maybe YOUR expectations are delusional. Hotline Miami is on sale for $5 VERY often, do you really think it has no chance of being free, or close to free?

The developers have nothing, NOTHING to do with it being free. You use the 5$ coupon, amazon still has to pay that purchase to the developers!

Amazon's already bought the keys for these games. It's Amazon giving them away after buying them.

Why is anyone confused about this fact?

The message wasn't directed at you anyway, I was just clarifying what you were saying and wondering why anyone was confused by it.

Pubs/devs have already been paid for Amazon to already have keys.

Looking to use my 2K coupon - what do ya'll think about using it on NBA 2K12 for $4.99 AC?
I already own everything else 2K in the $9.99-$19.99 range.
Is NBA 2K12 worth $5 for single player?

I could be completely wrong on this, but just an FYI to potentially check the facts on these games, but:


Someone the other day reported to stay clear of the MLB game. Reason was that since it's currently the off-season... the game right now doesn't even run, unless you set your computer's date back to a date during the regular season.

No clue if the NBA game might be the same, but would stink to buy it and find it no longer runs once June comes around and the NBA season's over.

Been playing NBA 2K12 for the whole of 2012 since I got it off Amazon in January, it's an excellent game and a steal for $5 if you don't care about updated rosters and a few more shinies in 2K13. Be aware that there are Steam and non-Steam versions, pick whichever one you prefer.

The date bug in MLB2K12 is unique to that title's PC version and 2K looks like they're not gonna patch it since they've lost the MLB license. That has nothing to do with the NBA2K franchise though.

Hope that helps.
