I did, I was like:

"Listen Plug In, I need some help here. I'm getting crapped all over in this thread on a site I work on and I've got to flush the negative energy. This is the deal we need to stop this thread from completely going down the drain. Help me Plug In Digital, you're my only hope."

I sent the message by small, track driven robot, hopefully he gets my holographic image right.

Cheers,
Tony

Curious, would you mind (in PM if you're not comfortable here) listing out what you bought on Steam vs Amazon? I'm curious to know where the gaps lie and you look like a good use case.

If you're not comfortable sharing that's cool too, I'm very interested though.

Apologies if I missed it but what's going with Max Payne 3? I know its no longer a daily deal but I couldn't purchase from amazon for the last day of the sale. Will it go back up at some point?

Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

We've hit them up but I'm pretty sure our guy is still out of the office.

BTW the answer to all of these questions for pretty much any notable game we carry is "We've hit them up and are working on promotions".

You'd probably get a fair amount of volunteers giving data if you formally asked. I wouldn't have many qualms about sharing some of my buying habits. Amazon already knows most of what I buy. Damn you, Prime shipping!

EDIT: Come to think of it, there are bunch of threads where people list out all their purchases here for the year, right? This place is probably a data goldmine if you know where to look.

Tony, your breaking you one-a-day rule, just FYI, Don't let them suck you back in!

P.S. You could add a poll to this thread (or maybe start a new Amazon Deal Discussion Thread, and add it there).

Also, I've been refreshing the EC list to see when the new games show up. The count was at 42 games in the list, now at 41, anyone know what got axed?

Will Guild Wars 2 be on sale anytime soon? (to take advantage of the promotions)
Also if you'd know what kind of discount to look for if/when it happens that would be great.

I mainly buy games that register on steam. I would prefer to buy them on amazon since you've been putting up some amazing deals Tony. I just wish there were more available. Bethesda games would have been awesome if there were available on Amazon DD. I've been picking them up either on steam or gmg.

Hey Tony, is there any chance that you will eventually be getting the older Tomb Raider games (preferably steam versions) in the PCDD store? I'm not necessarily asking for it to happen this month. But I see that steam has the Tomb Raider collection on sale right now and I find myself hesitant to buy because I know that you have a relationship with Square/Enix.

I wont likely get around to playing any of these over the next six months, so if there is even a glimmer of hope that you'll be getting them in, I'd definitely want to hold off on my purchase.


Sorry to bump my question so soon, but the Tomb Raider games only have 14 hours left. And with your decreased participation in this thread, I'm not sure if I'll have another chance to have you see this before the deal ends, or one of us goes to sleep.

@awestover89,

Yes, but the take away there is that in terms of market share (at least in your case) the profit/share ratio is in amazon's favor. They made damn near twice as much money from you with 1/2 the market share (Share size Vs. Profit). Steam made $85.10 (47.4% market share), Amazon made $92.44 (25.9% market share). Clearly Steam is having to work twice as hard to make the same amount of money as Amazon.

It is back up for sale now, as for being promoted at 75% off again, we're working on it but no news yet. FYI we got keys for this at the same time we did the Bioshock games, put them in the system...and then sold out of Bioshock again.

You'd probably get a fair amount of volunteers giving data if you formally asked. I wouldn't have many qualms about sharing some of my buying habits. Amazon already knows most of what I buy. Damn you, Prime shipping!


I'm going to do this formally in 2013, but figured since he already had a spreadsheet I'd look at it and use the information to better frame my question(s) to you guys :).

Tony, your breaking you one-a-day rule, just FYI, Don't let them suck you back in!


The once a day experiment was helpful both for my own sanity and the thread derailment. I think most of the ragers and such vented, saw I didn't plan on responding anymore, and stopped raging.

In the future, I'll just duck out for a day or two if the thread starts spiraling out of control.

Cheers,
Tony

Updating this question. Nothing got axed, we pulled something today that was out of keys. The coupons still apply and we'll put it back when we have more keys.

This should have been the case with the bundles too. Looks like it isn't, I'll look at it now.

Yeah, Steam was mostly older games or bundles with a lot of games, (Prince of Persia Pack, 5 games, Tomb Raider Franchise 9 games, etc) and Amazon had better deals on the newer/more expensive items. Very few purchases on Steam were > $5, and quite a few on Amazon were around the $10 mark
