Pre-purchase Bioshock Infinite with GMG and received $15 credit(or $14 cash back), XCOM EU, Bioshock, and 1 game of your choice for free. The details is kind of confusing but you automatically get XCOM for free, Bioshock 1 is shown below with 5 different game options. Chose out of those bundles which one you like, pay it, then you will get XCOM EU key March 26th along with Bioshock Infinite, Bioshock 1, and the other free game of your choice (that you chose); oh and the $15 credit.

One of the best pre-order deals I have ever seen.

Looks like the same "get our old shovel ware games for free!" deal.
Any pc owner that pays $60 for this game should have his cag card revoked.
It will be 30 - 35 within a week.
Buy Xcom for $16 on amazon if you want it and save your money for the season pass or something.

It should be noted that the choice of games is between one of five: Spec Ops The Line, Civilization 5, Bioshock 2, Mafia 2, and The Darkness 2. The deal is sick if they're all steam-redeemable though.

Since you're getting $14 cash back, you're not paying $60. You're getting a 23% discount off the list price plus the extra games. Plus the extra titles that may or may not sweeten the pot depending on your interest and whether you already own them or not.

Also to be fair, I only paid like $36 for Tomb Raider thanks to another promotion they had in terms of pre-order. So you could use the cash back from this one top of that and get a new game later in the year for like $20 if the same situation presents itself(spoiler, it almost always does with that site).

Of all the deals I've seen, this is probably the best out there honestly.

So.......

Buy Bioshock Infinite, Xcom, Bioshock 1 and another free game Day 1 for $46....

or buy Xcom now, and wait a week to hopefully buy Bioshock Infinite for a total of $46-51.

Are you kidding me dude? Stop hating on the deal and use some damn common sense.

I can get Bioshock Infinite for $36 right now.

That is $23 I can spend now, or put towards the season pass.
And I don't need to acquire all of 2K games that I trip over when I go to Big Lots.

Then do that, this is still a pretty darn good deal.

Normally I would've just ignored a post like yours if it was just saying the deal was bad, but jumping on this is hardly a "cag card revoking" move.

Guys, I really think we should wait like Zimmy says... surely the possibility of it being $35 in a week doesn't seem like a big fat load of BS at all!

A week after that they will be giving everyone a copy for free with a $20 credit for a future game.

I apologize if it comes across saying it was not a deal worthy post.
It is.
I'm just amazed at the sudden promotions where they want you to buy the game at retail so they try to sweeten the pot with bargain games.
I would say buying any new PC games at $60 is revok worthy.
How do all those that bought Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, Hitman Absolution, and Tomb Raider for $60 feel today???

Again, for what is out there, this is a good deal. As long as you know price drops are inevitable.

Just make sure to tell all of us what you decided to do.
Did you pre-order this game at $60?

Just want to show for the record.

Let's put our money where our mouth is! ;)

Part of me thinks this is true, being a 2K game.

But Bioshock 1 didn't tank in price like that...did it? (2 did..but 2 wasn't as critically acclaimed)

Actually the GamersGate deal is slightly more amazing if you have the 20% off from the Bethesda Bundle error ... check out the GG thread for details (and proper credit for the deal discoverer) but I ended up getting the following -

Bioshock Infinite
Bioshock
Mafia II
Xcom

$16 worth of Blue Coins (their version of credit)

Total cost - $37

Not too shabby

Here is how I did this:

Pre-Order'ed BioShock Infinite from Green Man:

Got:
BioShock Infinite
BioShock Infinite Season Pass (Used the $15 Credit)
BioShock 1
Mafia 2
X-Com (Which I already had from Green Man's earlier sales) PM if someone wants to buy it for $15 (Once I get the code first)

All for $64. I say that is a pretty good deal.

Zimmy, you also seem to be a bit ill informed on what "shovelware" actually is. Budget titles because they are a little old does not make them shovelware by definition

Should be technically better than that, assuming you count the BC's as "cash".

Cost for the bundle was 36,805 BC ($36.80) with 15,792 BC ($15.79) refunded back to your account. So a total of $21.01 for Bioshock:Infinite, XCOM: EU, Bioshock and the other free game.

Again though, that assumes you'll be using the extra blue coins and can consider them an actual discount.

Considering this game cost an estimated 200 million to make and market, I doubt it would be dropping fast...unless it blows (saleswise and reviews).

Honestly, I wasn't considering dropping money for this until I played a demo (since I am not good with shooters) but I just might bite and get it.
