I went for Black Ops 2, at 25% off it is $45 which is the lowest price seen so far. Heck, they still make a big deal out of selling MW3 for $30 and it is a year old. $45 is a great deal on a game that is unlikely to go lower before launch. Plus, it is a steam key, wins all around.

FYI, you can use both the 25% coupon + the 5$ credit you got from buying to get the price of the new Hitman to 28.74$!

Also, Tony, can you please price match the Crusader kings 2 sale? thanks :)

I think the big question is it one time use only or not? /js :)

Also, Tony you rock.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

$10 for SR3, and Darksiders 2 -- go!


I'd love to see Darksiders 2 hit $10. :P

Alright, after hearing no objections. Here is my query:

After many purchases from Amazon, I found myself juggling between different game management solutions including Steam, Origin, Windows Game whatever, etc., leading me to create a shortcut folder to organize everything using medium icons:

Spoiler


The only problem is that it looks a little cluttered and doesn't have the same aesthetic appeal as, say, Origin or some of the Steam overlays. I then tried going with extra large icons with this result:
Spoiler


Better, but only for the icons with a large enough image size. Otherwise, the art is tiny and the entire thing looks weird. Not surprisingly, it looks like Steam limited their shortcut icons to just the tiny view as a subtle way to lock-in customers to their game management solution.

So I tried looking for solutions, like replacing the icon images, but have found the process lacking and a huge time suck. Also, when I looked into adding games into the steam library, I found out that you have to hunt for the .exe file for each game, another huge time suck. I'm also not a fan of the different views bu Steam. Surprisingly, there do not seem to be third-party solutions like those found for digital music or ebooks (ex: Calibre).

So, has anyone else figured out a better way of organizing your games across different digital download services?

Also, Tony, this seems like a good opportunity for Amazon to come up with a solution. The coding seems to me as a layperson to be straight forward -- something similar to the carousel in Kindle Fire or Cover View from Apple. Plus, Digital Download fragmentation seems inevitable as more and more publishers jump into having their own platforms like Ubisoft, EA, etc. This gives a third-party the opportunity to come up with a software solution that would operate like shortcuts, reside on the desktop, and link up the shortcuts with coverart, game descriptions, screenshots, and other customization options for your consumer base. Finally, you put in small advertisements or a tab linking the user back to your own store, reaping the chief benefits of the different platforms -- "virtual store" advertisements without the added costs of programming the features like social media, cloud storage of game saves, DRM, etc.

Hope the amazon rep can answer this, is it a glitch or was it never intended for pre-orders?

I just pre-ordered South Park: Stick of Truth with it.

44.99 - 11.25 - $5 (from THQ Pack Credit)

Total was 28.74 before tax for the pre-order. I can live with that. Thanks Tony!

Hitman Absolution is also 28.74$ if someone uses the coupon+ the 5$ credit given in the square enix pack.

It probably wasn't intended to work on pre-orders though. So if there's something that you guys want to pre-order, you should probably do so ASAP.

it was gonna let me use the code for absolution then it changed its mine and i already preordered with just the $5 off, how can i just get a price match for the other 11.25 off? i guess dowload preorders don't let you change payment method. why can't this code just work on xcom? I now absolutely refuse to ever buy xcom from amazon out of principle.

Check your order details and you will see that the promo was not actually applied to your preorder. Just got off the phone with an amazon rep and he told be that it most likely will not work on preorders where the game comes out after the promo code expires (which he told me was October 20th).

My order details clearly shows the $11.25 promo discount. It might be because I applied the code to my account before it got fixed, but I did order literally 5 minutes ago.

Well that sucks for me then. I placed my order a good 20 minutes ago and it did not work, so I just cancelled it.

2. is there any chance of this 25% off being made available for xcom?

The fact that XCOM has also been excluded from all of the GreenManGaming coupons points to this being a problem with the publisher of XCOM and not with Amazon or GMG. Why punish retailers for something that is likely out of their hands?
