You mean that Tony has some sort of life and doesn't just live on this thread responding to every numbnut trying to get a price-match?

For realsies, though: I wasn't specifically asking Tony for the price-match, more wondering if matching daily deals on DLC was something that Amazon does. They matched the 50% off but haven't matched the 75%. Same sort of thing seemed to happen during the winter sale. I didn't know if people knew whether or not they would match, so I figured I'd ask first before requesting a bunch of PMs through the web interface.

That said, I went to do exactly as you said earlier, but quicky-clicky me accidentally clicked
"Submit" before changing the birth date when you try to go to the Sleeping Dogs web page, and now steam thinks I'm less than a month old so it won't show me the Sleeping Dogs content (even though I've purchased the game already). So because of this, I couldn't get the URLs for the DLC pages. But I just remembered that I can grab the URLs straight from Steam, so I'll go do that now.

Gracias!


I'm not sure if this is completely applicable, but I don't think that Amazon price-matches DLC (or any PCDD item) that is less than $0.99.

Workin on it

Is that all that was changed? The pack isn't even available anymore is it?

Lots of people still prefer to have physical disk if possible (i know i do), maybe the current deal for the dvd version new is a good one to hard to pass up? :P. Or people just love GFWL ?;)

I prefer having discs. But with steamworks and GFWL, it's starting to become basically pointless on PC :(

But it's understandable because of how easy and rampant piracy is on PC...not that it stops pirates at all.

A pirate will pirate even games at $1 with or without 7 DRM layers. With today game prices thanks to the digital market, I think piracy is decreasing. Or at least I hope to...

got the microsoft bundle for $5. i am thinking fable the lost chapters for $2.50 isnt that hot, but not a terrible price. the fable bundle (2,3 and the lost chapters) for $5 would have been very hot. but i have part 2 on the 360 already.

Fable II was never ported to the PC. It's just TLC, III and the DLCs for III.

It's like EA making some of their games exclusive to Origin. If you have your own method of distributing that's effective, why would you invite more hands into the cookie jar.


EA won't do that unless they fix their Digital River payment service crap. For 2 years now I've had a problem with my account buying anything from them and not only me but many other users and we are all getting "payment Authorisation Failed" error (google it).
The only time my orders went through was with 4 pre-orders and Origin took $1 for each then nothing!. They didn't charge me and I contacted them many times asking them what is the issue and they still say, it is my bank. Then I asked them to remove the games that I pre-ordered and all they did was to "hide" them from library and they are still there in "hidden games" section and totally accessible! lol

I'm betting that both Sleeping Dogs and Hitman:Absolution will follow the Deux Ex: Human Revolution pricing curve - ie, Complete Packs with all DLC at $7.50 or less by Christmas next year. My backlog thanks Squeenix for its predictability in pricing. :bouncy:


I was sure of that since release because all these games are part of AMD promos ;):D

29 EC coupons, 26 used and 3 remaining. That is how good Amazon holiday sale went :applause:

If you bought something in Amazon's PCDD store between Nov 16th 2012 & December 31st 2012, you were given a voucher good for $5 off a purchase of a game on the Editor's Choice list in January.


anything?? man, i must have a ton of these vouchers then. i know i bought a lot in december.

Not renamed. The THQ Mega Pack (which was the DotW) and the HOLIDAY 2012 Complete Pack are and were separate items. During the DotW promotion the THQ Mega Pack was affected by the EC credit while the HOLIDAY Complete Pack was not (I checked out of curiosity).

Hi Tony,

Any chance of other EA games/bundles becoming deals after the Origin sale is done tonight ? I'm specially looking for a good price for NFS Ultimate bundle.

Thanks for the great MS Arcade bundle anyway :)

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet was a pleasant surprise. I'd misjudged the type of game it was and never would have bought it. I like it when a bundle introduces me to a game I like that I wouldn't otherwise have bought.

Tony,

As others have said, thank you for the MS bundle. But can we start talking about our next fix?

Any updates on the strat first bundle? what might be included and the price point? I think last time you had indicated this was going to be the test before the other 2 letter bundle that shall not be named.

Also, any plans for a meridian4 bundle down the road? I've noticed you guys are adding many of their titles to the service.

thanks again

Two questions.

Is the coupon working on Sleeping Dogs, bringing it to $5?

Also if it is I definitely will need an awesome CAG to pick up the Fable pack for me once it is live because this will be my last coupon on Sleeping Dogs!


EDIT

Nevermind, looks like the coupon doesn't apply. Poop, $5 is my price point for Sleeping Dogs and I was excited to perhaps already get it that cheap!

If you have a coupon, trying buying SD, you'll see if the credit applied before you confirm the order.

I've done very well with Amazon this winter on the PCDD front:

Scribblenauts Unlimited
LEGO Lord of the Rings
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4
LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 (can you sense a trend here? :) )
Hotline Miami
You Don't Know Jack
Microsoft 5-Game Arcade Pack

I'll probably get The Secret World when it goes on sale on 1/31.

Looking ahead, are there any plans for Guild Wars 2 going on sale over the next month or two? I wasn't looking for a new MMO to play over Christmas when it was on sale (*kicks self*) but after leveling my third level 50 toon on TOR, I'm done with it. I'm hoping to give GW2 and TSW a try, especially GW2. The cheapest I've seen it as of late is for $48 on GMG by using the 20% coupon. I'm hoping I can grab it for a little less than that in the upcoming months though.

edit: forgot to include YDKJ

Tony has said many times, that they won't bother price matching DLC priced under $0.50 $1.00.

I imagine what it costs Amazon do to do the pricematch compared to their sales records from prior cheap DLC price matches doesn't add up to reasonable profit. Have you noticed how many of Tony's best deals are bundles?
