Hi Tony,

Is there any chance this could be price matched?

Command & Conquer™ The Ultimate Collection - $16.99 (66% off) - offered by GameStop

I would instantly buy it from Amazon!


Fuck yeah, if Tony pm this, it is instant-buy for me :lol:;

Tony, please pricematch Ghost Warrior: Future Recon off the Ubisoft store. Then put it on the EC list. And none of that "overseas" stuff either; they have North American locations and I say it counts. Thanks in advance! ;)

Edit: Hrm, I don't even see it on the site but I could have sworn I saw it there a week or so ago. Maybe I was hallucinating.

Spec-Ops multiplayer is useless since nobody seems to be playing it, but I tried it today and wish people did. They made it pretty fun.

The developers of the game famously disavowed the multi-player as shit they were forced by the publisher to tack on because they thought a shooter had to have a MP component.

Not sure what you are asking for but these are the only options I know:

Amazon gift cards can be sent by email or they can send you the code by some other means but if you're talking about Amazon credit received from a purchase, that is credited to your account almost immediately.
Now if it's an Amazon gift card offered by another site, it's typically a code as well.


Thank you very much for the help. I can understand it now from your post . I was asking about Amazon Gift card :D Not the credit receiving from a purchase. Sorry about my Bad English.

Submitted the lower price through the website. Hopefully it drops! With EC coupon I'd probably soil myself a little bit during the purchase process.



I did the same thing, crossing my fingers!

I need to get to Darksiders too, couldn't pass up on $8.19 for the entire pack. Is finishing 1 crucial to playing 2?

Not really, but 1 is pretty good.

Amazon doesn't match publisher deals. Since that deal is directly from Ubisoft, I doubt they'd match it.

Wow somebody actually put a semi-decent price on that pack that wasn't a mistake.

Something kind of tells me with some of the rejiggering or pricing to factor in the EC $5 that's been done on some of these EA games that this won't get PM'ed but we'll see.

That $30 sale earlier in the month was pretty terrible. I'm not sure if it was EA or Amazon being chintzy or both but if it was EA I don't know why they'd refuse to do a lower price for Amazon and then suddenly let Gamestop/Impulse do it a week later.

Someone needs to update the OP(x3) then. It just excludes international retailers and boxed products.

I demand my price match on technicality! [-(

(I'm not doubting you; I've just looked at the uPlay site, Ubi site and GW site and don't see it so now I'm curious. My understanding was that the sale was on through the weekend.).

Borderlands is a bit of a First person shooter MMO, fetch quests, kill X guys, look for loot, though I think the more accurate term would be first person shooter dungeon crawler as "massive" implies more than 4 at a time.

Spec-Ops multiplayer is useless since nobody seems to be playing it, but I tried it today and wish people did. They made it pretty fun. I wish I could ma the level on my online character, but I doubt I'll ever find that many matches.

Lot of folks bought it over the last couple of weeks, maybe a spec ops night can be arranged. I know there is a coop mode, but have no idea if that levels up your character or just the competitive multiplayer.

It's killing me that the Alice Madness Collection is Origin...I'd be sold in a heartbeat if it was Steam.

I like to keep my distance from Origin...as much so I'd buy a physical copy of Dead Space 3 even though I hate having physical media lying around.

I'm not sure how they are going to handle Dead Space 3 at retail. Box says it requires an internet connection for activation. Don't know if that means they will try to force Origin upon retail buyers? Or it might just be your standard key activation.

thanks for the reply, though I'm wondering why I was just sent what looks like a single key instead.

I was hoping for separate keys as I already own the base game

You guys are kidding yourself. It will require Origin.

Just like Mass Effect 3 and Syndicate both of which I bought retail last year. Installs from disk but requires Origin

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

That's what scares me...I've tried to get an answer from Amazon CS on whether or not the download option for DS3 is Steam or Origin since DS 1 & 2 are on Steam.

But my guess is since it's not stated, it's most likely Origin.

My hope is that with the physical version, I can opt out of having to redeem it on Origin or just self install it.

I'd hate to get the physical one and have to Origin redeem it, which eliminates any possibility of resale or any real reason to buy physical media anymore...

Well if you don't absolutely need the first game (and it hasn't aged well). Alice:TMR has been cheap a number of times on Steam and usually goes on sale every big sale they have there.

Plus you can still take the key you get for it on Steam and register it on Origin if you want as a backup. :-P

I figured the original from 2000 would play just like playing N64 games today...not good unless it's Mario Kart.

TMR will probably end up cheap next Steam sale so I might wait.

Ugh that bums me out to hear that it hasn't aged well and it won't activate on Steam. The story intrigues me so I was kind of looking forward to playing it.

Have you tried pressing the View product key button?. I didn't buy a shooter pack myself but I did buy it from a fellow CAG that bought it and he sent me 3 keys. Maybe, they set it to 1 key only later. :-k
