@ Tony There are alot of people who would like to pick up Kingdoms of Amalur on Steam, in the past Steam codes could be provided for certain games (Bioshock Pack for example). What are the chances of Amazon being able to provide a Steam code version for Kingdoms of Amalur. THAT would sell like wildfire.


This is true, but the owner of the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur on Steam is now the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, since they held the majority interest in 38 Studios when it went under. Rhode Island isn't a video game production company, so things are in limbo until the bankruptcy is sorted out. Tony's said in this thread that he sends emails frequently, but also that it's not easy to find out *who* to contact about this. If both Tony and Valve aren't able to pull it off, I think we can bet that Origin is the only place we're going to see Amalur at a reasonable price.

I check this thread multiple times a day, have no one to which I'm obliged to respond... and it wears me out.


You're obligated to respond to me, hal.

Q5) Where can I find the eligible games?
A5) Here

That link is to a Spec Ops purchase page which startled the hell out of me and made me think I just bought a copy :lol:


Got me too!

i just don't understand why it would be so hard to explain how games are added
i mean is it a lottery drawing done by a computer?
how does no one know what games will be on the list?


Tony's been very upfront about this in this thread. It's an ongoing process of contacting publishers and seeing what kind of deals they're interested in making. Nothing can be 100% confirmed or denied, so he isn't confirming or denying anything. That's just the reality of the business -- any business.

cut the racism guys

Game looks pretty terrible and the impressions I've heard are very mixed but why not. I just hope it isn't a waste of a coupon.

It's Amazon matcing Steams price (not to mention, we've known Hotline would be on the EC list for....for a long time, so at MSRP it would've been 5 after coupon. Not Amazon's fault.)

It sort of is since everyone in here kept saying how amazon refuses to match flash deals. Seems to be no rhyme or reason and just makes it absolutely frustrating to buy stuff.

More or less frustrating than every other digital game seller that doesn't give any inclination at all what games will go on sale?

Nonono, we are NOT ruining this. Last year we had a similar thing happen to Dead Space 2 midway through the sale. January sale is off limits from any of this complaining. It was awesome last year BECAUSE this sort of stuff came around, BECAUSE we looked at games that just randomly dropped in with a "whoa how did that get there?" moment. Please, please keep any whining of prices away from *this* sale. Everyone here has at some point or another mentioned that this month is full of craziness. The good kind. The kind where you are gambling with your coupons, betting that Tony can work magic. If you're wrong, okay. Happens. If you're right, congrats.

And if you're really wrong, you're probably going "goddammit why didn't I buy that DLC!"

Definitely more since you know it's on sale and think it's safe to buy and then get undercut.

With a free Hotline Miami, I am up to 71 games and 56 DLC so far this sale, 3 days left on Steam sale and 4 EC coupons left for Amazon.

I may have gone a tad overboard.

True, but there was always the chance of Hotline Miami going on sale for $4.99 at other digital distribution sites throughout the month. I know Gamefly had it for $4.99 last month, and there's always Gamestop or Steam putting it up as a Daily Deal. So it's your own fault for buying it too soon.

Hey Tony,
Just wanted to say thank you for this great price match and deal. I actually did purchase Hotline Miami at $2.50 when January 1 came around, because I felt it was worth that asking price (and a great deal at the time!). I haven't even played the game yet, but I hope no one is upset just because we may have lost $2.50 or something in a short time-frame. I suspect that you probably wondered if you were setting yourself up for further complaints, but I just wanted to give a hearty "thank you" from an "early adopter" haha.

Besides, I bought an extra copy to give to a friend :)

If you say so. They price matched a steam flash deal which everyone in here said multiple times during the december sale will never ever be matched by amazon and that they don't price match flash deals. And then they matched a flash deal on steam... Doesn't matter to me, they just solidified me not buying dark souls or the other games I was on the fence with. Not my loss.

So...exactly like Steam then? Where a game can be a flash sale for 66% and then a daily deal for 75%? And another game can be 50% flash sale and then you wait for a daily deal and it never comes? Where the franchise pack can go on sale and then you realize that the individual games are actually cheaper?

Fact is, buying things is always a gamble. There may be a better sale, there may not. Personally, since we knew that Hotline Miami would be no more than $7.49 on Steam until Jan 5th, it made the most logical sense to not buy before then, unless the price went down like it did. Regular price is $10, its always been on the EC 2012 list, so the worst case scenario should have been $5 with coupon. Then it went on sale on Steam for $7.49 without a flash or daily, so that became the new lowest possible price without coupon, guaranteed to not be exceeded until Jan 5 at the earliest.

Everyone who said it was repeating what we were told by Tony. It's frustrating yeah, but I would rather let it go and let other people enjoy it (I bought it at $5 myself so I am in a similar boat as you), rather than getting upset and endangering possible future deals like this. You bought it, like me, because it was worth it to you at the time. It's an indie game, it was always going to go down in price.
