I did do a quick search so if this has already been addressed, please either PM me or point me to the page.

1. I bought a lot of the games that came with the $5 credit. How can I view the credit balance on my Amazon account.

2. Where is the current list of games that we can use the $5 credit on maintained?

Apologies if already addressed. I will edit/delete this after I get an answer.

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.




You're not 1337 enough for Toilet Tycoon! ^_~ (Personally I can't wait until the inevitable remake as an FPS =p


Wait, I thought Toilet Tycoon was a remake of Postal 2?

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,

Smaller bundles of more specific games is better.
The only exception is the 1C Bundle!!!!

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.

Cheers,
TOny

1. Check your e-mails. Best way to see how many of those EC credits you have.
Amazon website doesn't really have a way to track them. :(

Trying to decide whether to grab Dark Souls before it goes off sale. Not sure if it's my kinda game. What I've seen of it makes me think it's not, but so many people rave about it.... I've got 3 EC tix left, just don't want to waste them.


The game will literally make you throw your controller/mouse at the screen. But it has a very rewarding feeling when you finally accomplish it. (like the bridge run past the dragon... that was incredible)

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.

Cheers,
Tony


Okay, replace "Amazon" with "Bioshock's publisher", and the point's basically the same I would think? The pub wants to get Bioshock out there, and isn't it devaluing their product?

I like Bioshock. But too much of a good thing out there leads to any product devaluing, no?

But I'll be more careful with my comments if you're concerned of them being absolutely construed as fact.

I think you're replacing speculation with more speculation. He already told you, the Bioshock pack on its own has sold well.

And games after a certain lifespan are sold at this level not uncommonly, especially digital games. Look at all the Prince of Persia games on Steam sold for $2.50 each, or recent-gen Tomb Raider games, same thing. They always sell well when they go on deep sales. This is basically the same price BioShock is being sold for, minus rare exceptions.

There is a lot of theorizing in this thread that is asserted as fact, when most of us are just guessing at what's going on. The problem with this it leads to extended discussions that often have a very negative tone to them and they overtake the thread for pages upon pages.

Yeah, that's the exact reason I don't think it's for me. I USUALLY play games to see new things (story, art, environments, etc) and challenge is really less important to me. It's about an experience. Once in a while a challenge will be fun to me and once in a blue moon I find a competitive multiplayer game I enjoy (usually a bit slower paced, more tactical stuff think Battlefield over CoD).

Smaller bundles with a lower price point. I'm more willing to buy a small cheaper pack that has 1 game I already own/don't want over a big pricier pack that has 1 game that I already own/don't want. It feels like the more you spend on something the less wiggle room you give it.

Personally, I never got angry at Dark Souls (spare one time I got cursed four times in a row due to sloppy play) like I have with other games because while difficult, it is not cheap. I avoided DS like the plague on launch due to all the difficulty talk and can say now, I missed out on a good game for a while due to pure fear. I think people should actually play DS for the experience. If you can learn and adapt, DS will pose no problem to you.

So, they're running out of keys as it's selling so well? That's surprising.

Anyway, since I'm obviously wrong, let's just agree I am wrong and move on.

If Tony wants me to edit/remove my posts, I will.

But Tony, my comments came from something else that's floated in my mind that's caused what's come out to come out, so I'm really just reflecting on myself. May I please PM you about it? You'll understand why I am PMing you when you read it. And no, it's not a complaint, or speculation, or questions. If you let me PM you, you'll understand.

Sorry maybe I misunderstood your original statement:

"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."

This implies that we're buying keys upfront and then selling them, as with a packaged goods business, this is not true.

Similarly, with Bioshock Infinite coming out, everyone wants as many people playing as possible, increasing the number of people talking about the franchise.

Also, again, this isn't meant to sound harsh I'm just trying to communicate how making statements as if they are fact without a full understanding of what's going on makes it harder for me to make cases based on direct customer feedback.

Today's the last day of the sale, and I keep getting conflicted on whether to buy or not.

I better just Youtube some vids of DS and decide. Youtube's already helped me decide on C&C Collection (no, just not my type of game, otherwise great value), TSW (yes!!!), KoA (yes), TWD (heck yes!), and Dead Rising 2 (but why did I say yes?)

DR2's not anything of what I was expecting.

I think I'm going to hold off on Dark Souls, I would have gotten it at $10.

I'm sort of torn on walking dead, I watched up until a little bit after you meet clementine and it just didn't really seem interesting. Does the story pick up where it's more interesting later on?
