Wait, do you guys want bigger bundles of games you already own a bunch of but at a higher price point? Or smaller bundles with a lower pricepoint? I can tell you how you're voting, in aggregate, with your dollars :). Until that trend changes we'll continue to focus most heavily on smaller bundles with good content at lower prices.

Cheers,
Tony


Smaller bundles are better! Plus, it makes impulse buying easier!

Slips broken record onto player:

"We will continue to add games and titles to the EC list throughout the month of January. I am continually in conversation with our publishers about including and promoting their titles during January. WB (or whatever publisher is asked about) is one of these people I'm talking to. Many people in the retail industry work insane hours prior to and during the holidays. As such, many of us are on vacation in early January."

Cheers,
Tony


Tony,

perhaps consider putting a similar blurb up on the amazon EC page as well. There's probably a bunch of folks who are going to that page outside of this forum and thinking the list is it. Last time I read the heading, I don't think there was anything there indicating the list would be changing throughout the month and encouraging folks to keep coming back. Just a thought.

and thanks for working on the strat first stuff - really looking forward to that. maybe meridian4 could be next? thanks agian.

I can only speak for myself, but I only re-entered PC gaming this past year, so my publisher libraries are far from full. (Though your recent sales have filled in many must/want to have spots.) A plus I see is that if you continue the trend of including multiple keys for each game, you'll wipe the floor with Steam and their pub packs.

Edit: I'd be willing to participate with a higher price point assuming the cost/game efficiency is better. (And separate keys are available.)

I want smaller bundles w/ more game I don't own at lower-price points.

But, the completionist in me does ESPECIALLY want bundles of Complete Games that include the Base Game + EVERY piece of DLC + ALL SEASON PASSES.

Unfortunately this isn't the kind of message we'd merchandise on site. Remember, I'm able to communicate much more freely with you guys because I can clarify things for those with questions.

Oftentimes these questions stem from genuine confusion, which is something we definitely don't want to cause, more often, the questions come from those trying to game the system and it's not feasible for us to instruct all of our CS reps how to handle those kinds of conversations.

If someone pops in here and says "TONY I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU WOULD BE SELLING WB GAMES IN THE EC LIST YOU OWE ME A $10 CREDIT FOR LYING TO ME" I can respond with "No I said we're talking to them and are working on stuff, specifically, I stated that nothing is locked in."

If we were to put this on the website, these same people will contact our CS, we'd have to rely on communication to our thousands of reps for each of our promotions every time we run them. This isn't feasible.

This makes sense, and we do offer larger bundles with semi regularity (2K Mega Pack, a bunch of the Sega packs, etc.) I just don't focus on them as heavily because I can't enough people like you to buy them.

If the price cut on the 2k mega pack had happened a bit earlier I would have jumped on it.

I don't know about these knuckleheads but looking back on my recent purchases, they are mostly smaller bundles (2-3 games, maybe the DLC). I think the only BIG bundle I grabbed was that SQENIX bundle. And let's be fair... ANYONE who loved SE games snatched that badboy up.

As is, I'm pretty much set for January and likely well into February... but there is plenty I'd be willing to throw money at.. :-)

But those smaller bundles with the Bioshock keys are basically just there to dump Bioshock keys.

If the Bioshock keys aren't basically worthless, then why does Amazon keep running out of them? It's because Amazon doesn't want to buy too many of them... and then be stuck themselves with worthless keys.

I'd rather see packs cost a little more, minus worthless keys.

Pack suggestions:

1) $12 - Borderlands GOTY, DNF+DLC, Spec Ops
2) $14 - Spec Ops, Borderlands GOTY, Darkness 2
3) $25 - Borderlands GOTY, Darkness 2, Spec Ops, Mafia 2, Civ 5 GOTY, Civ 4 Complete, Stronghold

If I don't give in, I'm possibly waiting for a Borderlands 2: Complete Box (with BL2 + ALL Non-Season Pass DLC + Season Pass DLC Pack). ;)

FYI there are several parts of this statement that are 100% untrue:

1. Because, in the digital marketplace, we have no inventory, we don't "buy keys" we get keys and make payment upon sale. There is no unhealthy inventory that needs to be liquidated. So there are no Bioshock keys "to dump".

2. The keys aren't worthless obviously...as evidenced by their continued sale and the massive amount of demand around the Bioshock pack when it was $5 (even before it was briefly free).

3. I'd like to offer this feedback (not to you specifically but to anyone reading this), it should be obvious by now that I'm a big advocate of using customer feedback to impact change in our business. It makes it exceedingly hard for me to make this feedback be taken seriously when anyone can pop into a forum I'm working in and find evidence of people making incorrect statements as if they were fact, the reason for this is that it destroys the credibility of the feedback. Just some food for thought, if you're going to make a statement like this, where you think you understand a situation, it is much more beneficial to the community as a whole if you instead state it as a question.

I prefer smaller bundles. It's less likely I own too much in them, and I find I'm less likely to reject something at a lower price. When the bundles get up to the $25 mark, I start thinking maybe I should buy whatever new AAA game is at that price. (Needless to say, if we're talking about the Strat First or 1C bundles, that doesn't apply.)

But, I still wanna know what this XYZ Game is...and how come it's not on any game website! :(
