Hey Tony, I'm just curious. Was the Farewell Sale considered to be a big success by you or your sales team?

As for SS4AE, wheels turning.

Do guys have a deal w/ Activision so you can carry their games for digital download?
That's probably who'd you have to talk to, if you wanted to carry Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.

I do LOVE that game to DEATH.

My most installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled game of all time.

For those who pre-ordered either digital versions of Mass Effect 3, you can now download the game (9.75 GB). Just go to your Game Library under your Amazon account, and you should see the download link. Not only that, but there should also be a product key and code for the pre-order bonus (M55 Argus Assault Rifle).

It is the preload data, and should unlock once the release date hits at midnight. I'm guessing if yo were to pre-order anytime up until the release date, you should be able to pre-load it early.

Also, those who pre-order either digital copy with receive $10 promo credit just like the physical copies.


Wouldn't it be easier to take the game key and activate it over Origin and let Origin handle everything?
ME3 PC game requires Origin.

I had troubles w/ KOA:R's installer from Amazon - it wouldn't install. Waste of time and wasted DL.
Though, activating my KOA:R keys via Origin and then downloading it through Origin was smooth as can be.

We do carry Activision games, however, sometimes we have issues blocking us from getting them on sale. Not sure what bucket Vampire falls into, I'm checking though.

CCP is and has been working on [for years!] the World of Darkness MMO, which uses the Vampire license.
I don't know if that could be part of the problem.

Though, GOG does sell Activision's original Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption.

Street Fighter AE download is now $20. Thanks Tony.

How do you download games to your specified drive instead of the main drive?

It is up to the buyer, but I like that you have the choice of doing it either way because of Amazon. No issues with the downloader so far myself.

Dude, I have to say I'm impressed. That you say things like that, warning people of a better deal in the near future, it's that kind of thing that makes me truly respect you and want to give you my business over others.

You are genuinely looking out for your customer and I appreciate that. Thank you.

This. I very much appreciated the notice, kept me from kicking myself when the price was lower soon after buying.

Well because if you and your team were happy with the results then that probably means more sales and cool promotions in the future.

A Kingdoms of Amalur and Alan Wake sale would be welcomed =)

Oh, I agree - I like the option, as well.

About the downloader - did you mean the KOA:R download from Amazon?
Or ME3 download from Amazon?

what about SR2? It is true is a really broken game?. GTA 4 works fine on my computer, a Dell XPS L701x... i7 740QM, 12Gb ram, GT445... or it doesn't matter?. It seems to be fun, and is cheap... but I don't wanna buy a broken unpatched game

so i get that amazon email today about medal of honor warfighter....after the horrible insult that was the last medal of honor, why does every big game publisher lead off with a 60 dollar price point - especially a game in a title that was such a failure last time around. (i don't care what numbers anyone has, medal of honor was nothing more than a 20 dollar battlefield 3 beta ticket)

No, I haven't tried it on my modern rig (i7 950, 1 GB of GF GTX 560 Ti, 8 GB RAM, and Win 7).
Anybody try it on a modern rig?

Did try it a while back on my older rig (P4 3.04 single core, NVidia GF 8800 GT, 2 GB of RAM) - and it ran like garbage.
Regardless, this is worth mention - I had STILL had A LOT of fun w/ the game, despite performance issues at times and clocking everything down [resolution, details, etc].

EXACTLY.
Your core FPS fans will probably buy it - just b/c it's another FPS.
And when the game price-drops a little bit, a bit of more people will buy it.
It's just the way the market goes.

If a game ain't selling, they drop the price a bit.
If it begins to sell good numbers - leave price alone.
Repeat cycle.

It's just these days and age, prices drop quickly often - especially on the PC w/ digital services [Steam, Amazon DL, etc]. Throw in DLC and other things - of course more price fluctuation occurs. Especially if there's too much competition or some big-time game is killing everybody else's sales.

Awesome to hear.
SR2 was FUN, despite its problems on my old rig.
Maybe worth re-installing on my new rig, if need-be. :D
