The pre-order price went down to $39.99 and has the $10 credit. I know DIRT sim fans are pissed about the direction this game took, but I'm a fan of destruction derby and DIRT, so I'm in for one at this price.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm in for one as well. I have been excited for this game for a while.

It's $39.99 with $10 credit since the credit does not immediately reduce the price of the game. You are still charged $39.99.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

I have to agree with ijustw1n. $40 and a $10 credit is different than paying $30 for a game. A lot of people use gift cards/credit to purchase a game with no $$$ out of pocket so yes, while it may be a deal, it is still a big difference.

But most CAGs should know by now that Amazon hardly ever has coupons to knock down the initial price, they always do credits like this. Regardless, it's a great deal :)

This is done by posters on SD just to make their deals look better. Then people bitch about it because it is in fact a dumb way to communicate the cost of a deal.

They're pissed that this is coming out between regular DiRT releases? So, they're mad that we get this game and then DiRT 4 will release later on? I'm not going to complain about branching out while still keeping the core series. This game looks like a lot of fun. :bouncy:

Very true and sadly, people will complain because we want accuracy.

"...I normally open every game I buy anymore...", "...since I ONLY usually...", "...because it's wasn't fun...", "Pretty much sure it does...", "Works always gets in...", "...I acually spelled the my user...", "this will help let more people see it as this more people see...", "You very probably won't...", "...wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition."

 Please, stop butchering the English language. These are horrible.

Awesome deal. In for 1 on 360.

Seems Amazon will continue to add more games to this "Dads & Grads" sale for a couple more weeks (this is week 2 of this sale).

Do we know if Dirt Showdown needs an online pass? I never played Dirt 3 but if Dirt 3 needed a pass, I will assume that Showdown will need one as well. If it does not have a pass, I will just rent.

Yes it does need one. In fact i saw they are already available on PSN or XBLA.

Thanks OP.

Yeah the reviews make it sound like 39.99 should be the MSRP for this game.

Dirt fans will be really pissed if they make Dirt Showdown to get the dudebro gymkhana/derby stuff as a full game to separate the two approaches but leave gymkhana or something in Dirt 4. I don't have a huge problem with Dirt Showdown, as long as Dirt 4 is pure sim. There better not be one ounce of Ken Block brokhana in it.

Yeah it does. The online pass is already on the PSN store. It went up a week before the game was originally coming out and is still there.

I had planned to pick up the game anyway, and a $20 price cut is always welcome :)

Thanks OP!

I really hate the thread title. I have a pet peeve against people who use gift credit as a sale price.

I was really excited for the release of this game......until I played the demo. Far too arcadey feeling and the physics just aren't right. Just feels like a cheap knock off of a Dirt game using the same engine. I'll pass for now, but may be interested when it's a Black Friday $10 sale.

THIS!!!

Also, it is NOT $29.99. You pay $40, THEN you get a $10 promo that you get to spend on the NEXT game you buy (I had to jump on in ;)).

I have about 25 dollars in credit at Amazon.

Both Gravity Rush and Lollipop Chainsaw drop on the same day.

Oh screw it, I ordered it.

The internet is a sad place. Do you honestly think anyone cares what you hate or what your pet peeves are? Keep it to yourself. This is why I hardly ever post on any site because no matter how much you try to help people out, someone still finds a way to complain like a little bitch. You could find a cure for cancer using turkey gravy and a rubber band and someone would say, "But the rubber isn't good for the environment."

For everyone else, I'm glad you found the post useful.

I think this site has become sad because instead of someone saying "hey, you're right, that makes sense that I should try to be as accurate as possible in what I post", we have more and more OPs who insist on taking a foolish position that they know is incorrect because they lack the integrity or self-confidence to admit a mistake and move on. This deal is $40 for the game and you get a $10 certificate that requires an additional purchase. The $40 part is a deal in itself given that the game is $60 MSRP. The $10 cert is also great because many of us buy lots of things from Amazon regularly. It doesn't change the fact that the game isn't $30 no matter how you try to justify it.

No, the thread title is worded poorly. No hard feelings man, it's not like I hate your guts or anything. Anyway, we are veering off topic right now.

If you guys are PC Gamers, you should check out ebay for steam codes, a lot of people got them from buying AMD graphics cards. They go for about 20$ or less.

Agreed, we are veering. I worded it the best I knew how with as much info as I could think of to make it make sense. Sorry to get your hopes up if it did that to you.

Actually, it's $30 for me since I have AZ credit in some obscene ass amount that I need to unload. So, having them dump $10 back in my stash, makes the game $30 for me. I'll just stop posting the deals I see...it will be easier that way.

No. Just try to be honest and accurate when you post a deal. Don't make things up as if they're fact. That's all anyone is asking of anyone that posts a deal here. I'm sorry that it's so difficult for you to understand those simple concepts. :lol:

On topic, I saw the deal this morning and went for it. :bouncy:

"...I normally open every game I buy anymore...", "...since I ONLY usually...", "...because it's wasn't fun...", "Pretty much sure it does...", "Works always gets in...", "...I acually spelled the my user...", "this will help let more people see it as this more people see...", "You very probably won't...", "...wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition."

Haters gonna hate, my friend. Anytime I start a thread on CAG there are always trolls that phuck & fart all over it. Point is, don't let these kids get to you. Motorstorm icon guy and Dog-crying icon guy just seem to get upset easily.

This price rocks, the thread title is fine, and this game will be fun. Carry on and let's go do what we all come here for: play videogames.

People will complain because some people simply love to bitch and moan. They literally start going into withdrawal if they go to long without bitching about something. He*l, it took longer for people to make a post complaining about the wording of this deal than it did for them to read the post and figure out its actually 39.99 with a 10 dollar credit. But again, that's just how some people are wired.

Title of the thread squabbles aside thanks for posting the deal OP! I have been using Amazon prime long enough to know that the $10 credit gets emailed to you separate from the price of the game, it's still $20 off and I am a DiRT addict. Cheers.
