Of course it does. If it had made you $50 million in profit, you could have perhaps opened a new studio, hired new developers, put a couple extra new games into the hopper, whatever.
From the perspective of "will we release another..."
Piracy will always exist. There are countries where you can't buy a legitimate physical good even if you wanted to.
But from a business standpoint, you don't let missed sales deter you from actual sales. That's why Ubisoft citing piracy rate is garbage. It's not a figure that matters.

Not one person has mentioned that Age Of Wonders III is a potential 50% off in the community vote. It probably won't win, but it means we can at least hope for a flash or daily spot down the line at 50%. I'd resigned myself to a 33% or 40% discount.
But not one of you mentioned it at all. Not one.
And I thought we were friends.
That's b/c it'd only be 50% off, not 75% off....

Prison Architect is fun, if you're willing to put the time in to learn the systems. If you're gonna say, "I'm just gonna mess around and do whatever.", your inmates and staff are all gonna die. And now since they added fail conditions, it'll be a short time. But if you plan well and try to make a functioning institution, it can be very rewarding to see your well oiled machine run.

Some feedback for Tony and the Amazon lot. Note that this is my insight and personal opinion and does not reflect CAG as a whole (just to cover bases).
1) Using the EC system, it would be nice to have the deals lined up even before the yearly EC deal is even announced or put into effect. Obviously what happened this year was the assumption that EC 2014 was going to be rocking like the last 2 years and ended up being an EA spam fest (might as well call it the monthly EA sale). If we can get publishers on board before the EC promo starts (where you purchase games to get EC credit to use later), Amazon can have a better head count of what to expect for the sale and overall see if it is even worth having the sale at all in the current form. Obviously we just had major xmas holiday sales around all game sites that sell games but I will get to that point next. It seems that most publishers have blown you off from what I understand so far this year.
2) The timing of the sale was tough. It seams that many other gaming sites (gmg, gamefly, gamestop, etc) have jumped on the steam holiday sales train, and it seems publishers are a little worn out of deals by the time Jan rolls around. It may be a good idea to move the EC sale to another month where excuses such as "just getting back into the office" or "just had a sale last month" will not be an issue.
3) This is a big one... The current form of the EC program is now being exploited by other game sellers. What I mean by that is that I am seeing other sites such as gamestop offering the same games on sale at the price point that would normally cost on Amazon after EC coupon. EC coupon then becomes pretty much worthless. One good example (and there has been quite a few that I've seen) is that gamestop offered the command and conquer decade set for 5 dollars no questions asked. Maybe it is time to rethink the EC program all together so that it actually provides value to the customer.
With all that being said, it is just (hopefully) constructive criticism that may provide insight from the customer standpoint. I still think you do an AMAZING job at providing deals and interfacing with the community Tony, so don't take this as a negative against you (or amazon) in any way . Keep up the great work and we all know you care!

EA guy, why are so few of EA titles on the PC anymore? Coming from consoles its shocking to see its bee been going on "forever" it seems... With the coding for consoles being so close to PC now can you let the power that be know that there's clamoring for more EA titles? (Looking and seeing that none of the Army of Two series has been on PC is... Well, disappointing for someone who really enjoyed the series and who has likely bought his last console.)
I could go for some NEW Maddens on the PC.
NHL games, as well.

Has anyone been able to redeem or see their key in their desura collection from the groupees bundle? I have the game in desura and installed from there fine but it doesnt show up in my collection so I cant see a steam key
You probably have the filter set to Mac or Linux. Click here to change it to windows, and it'll show up.
