welcome (back?)! are you the same guy as on reddit? As it appears to be so. And eh's a pretty cool guy who doesn't afraid of deals.

and nice promotion. I support it.


Yes I am the same guy :) Anywhere you see GMG talking basically, it's probably me :D

Aw, Bioshock is the only game in years that I want badly enough to preorder. But I'd feel like a chump paying full price when the UK gets a voucher.

I can hold out until a Steam -33% sale in the Summer. I can, I can, I can. >.>

Posted this last night and since you're up thought I would mention it again. Was hoping to snag another 4 or 5 preorders, but....

Now I'm getting an error that says to contact my payment provider, yet they say none of those charges ever even reached their end. They see my first 3 purchases and then none of the attempts afterwards. I even put through 2 orders while on the phone with them and they said the request never hit their end despite your website saying I was declined by my provider.
I tried games from different publishers and had the same issue.

I know Newegg has had promo's where it could be preorders for like $45 or $48 dollars, but that was the physical version

Have you contacted our own support guys about it? You can do this by logging in to GMG, clicking support and creating a new request.

Or if you've already done that feel free to throw me a PM with the ticket number and I'll try to get it looked at. Payment issues can be trickier though so I can't say whether or not there will be a resolution - I'm honestly not too educated on payment processes and the like!

I submitted a ticket earlier, but know that forums, etc often result in a faster response. Since I have an impulse purchasing problem, speed is good :)
Turns out by the time I got back to here someone named Nolan had already "made changes to [my] account" and it is working again. I'm curious what those changes were though....

On another note: Is there a way to enable it so that the same coupon (eg: the 25% off preorders) activates on ALL applicable items in a cart? I'm having to buy each preorder individually because it will only activate on 1 item in the cart. My credit card company has a little bit of a heart attack when they see the same charge amount come across multiple times from the UK :)

Glad it's working again!

As for the vouchers.. sadly not. That's a quirk which down the line we'll be addressing so you can redeem it on all applicable products in the basket.

Yeah I hope you guys can fix that. When you were having that big OMGWTFBBQ the whole damned store (practically) is on sale sale recently I ended up making multiple purchases a bunch of times and I'm pretty sure you guys get dinged a fee per each transaction so it would make more sense to let people bundle them up.

James,

Would love to see another Alpha Protocol promotion as I was unable to get in that relatively small window before you all ran out of keys a week or so ago.

@JamesGMG

Any chance we might ever see The Secret World hit $5.xx USD again or so?
Or something maybe even remotely close to that ballpark?

Since subs are gone, I doubt it'll hit $5.xx again...but something in the ballpark (even if a little more expensive) would be nice.

I've been trying to checkout my order for SimCity since yesterday, every time I get a message saying there were "Network issues" when I click the checkout button. I just sent support a ticket. Highly frustrating.

We work off the same latest information. If you want feel free to send me a PM, it'll leave me a reminder in my email inbox to ask for another update. Alas we're at the mercy of the publisher for getting more keys in, but should hopefully get sorted out early next week.

James,

I've been telling them it'd be awesome to see another run of that. It might be coming up in the near future but I couldn't make any guarantee.

I've not seen any plans for it. But I agree it'd be good. If it does come up again you'll definitely be able to see it on our various shouting channels. I know you see them Myster :)

If you've got a ticket number you're happy to give me I can gently push it under their noses on Monday morning (unless you get a response before then of course!)

Oh, yeah - I'll definitely keep my eyes open for another TSW deal from you guys - especially if it's in a similar ballpark to that insane $5.xx deal you had not too long before sub-fees got dropped..

I really hope you run a TSW deal again, since the game is now without sub-fees; and since the game has seen a 400% increase in activity.

OTOH you get TF2 crap there. A hillbilly hat and beard and a stuffed teddy bear.

Even if you don't want it you could probably find someone to buy it from you. Might be worth more if you hold onto it for a while too.

We need a Tera Online sale upcoming in the pipeline now that it's going 'free to play' as well. Tons of people are going to be looking for a base edition to get 'founder' status. I know it probably can't happen right away, but I hope to see it on the burner somewhere.

Those things will probably only be worth a couple bucks. And it would be better to sell it right away either on steamcommmunity.com/market or through trading. You might be able to sell all the items for a couple of tf2 keys which would net you about 4-5 bucks in steam wallet. They aren't tradeable yet which might hurt the price of those items though. I'd rather take the 25 percent off.

I would have bought Bioshock Infinite on that deal but its kind of wack the deal is not available for American players.

Some recommendations for the future.

A) Dont let American players see the deal in the first place. I mean wth, I understand now that its not available but if you look at the page we see it sure as heck does look like its a promotion going on.

B) The disclaimer page... I didn't see on the bioshock page the code wouldn't work, not until I went back and looked at where the code was displayed and then clicked on compatible games did I see that the code for Bioshock Infinite wasn't available for North American players. The problem is now that most players will just think its a glitch and your website isn't working because they will try to use the code on it, and never go beyond that.

In the future Id suggest if a deal isn't made for NA players to make it not show up for us based on IP address. Its less frustrating for both sides.

Sadly a terrible mistake made. I've reported it as this does look incredibly misleading.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused mate.

Hey if I preorder a game on GMG do I get the code before the game comes out? I prefer to preload my games.
