Tony,

Awesome deal!
Two questions about paying.

1. I see there is not an option to choose to pay with JUST a credit card if you have any Amazon credit, unlike when purchasing pretty much anything else on Amazon. I know it's a somewhat interesting point, but still...

2. Also related, there is not an option to use any Amazon.com credit card reward points.

Are there any plans to change this in the future or is this some type of policy for downloadables?

How do I cancel a origin pre-order? Could have sworn they charged me already for BF3.


You can cancel your preorder on Origin. Just go to the chat and talk to someone about it. I got my cancellation about a week ago

So how does this Amazon digital download work, besides the obvious? What I mean is, can I use this digital download key for Origin or Steam?

Edit: Okay, so after some reading, I've answered my own question - Amazon sends key on date of release, input key for mandatory Origin install. Thanks. Best deal by far. Glad I waited.

K people that want to get their Gears credit applied read this:

Talked to chat. No go. Gave me the Game Download number.

866-439-0310

Called them up and the guy said he could reissue a generic promo credit, but he wasnt sure it if would apply. Tried it real quick and it works!


Also, I told him if i couldnt apply it then I would just buy $20 of graphic novels or something and not give Amazon the extra money. Then Id go to Best Buy and buy the game for $60. I really wanted to support Amazon in this instances tho.

Very glad at the way Amazon handled this. Amazing deal and will gladly support Amazon and their future digital sales. $22 for BF3 and I dont have to travel anywhere! WHOOOO!!!

They reserve the right to pretty much do damn well whatever they please with their service, but they wouldn't actually do it. It'd be a PR nightmare.


Depends how they spin it. If they go with "they are unfairly inflating their ranks", which would be a (potential) side effect (more people, more killing, more points) then they could easily get away with it. The people who care are the same people who "boycotted" Modern Warfare 2. And the people who actually play the game just see "Me want fairer stats!"

I doubt they'll ban for the higher playercount servers, but at the same time, I ain't gonna be hopping on those.

Can we pre-load the game before the midnight launch? I really want to play as soon as the clock strikes midnight.

Yeah, it said that too but I was a bit confused since technically the "minute it comes out" would be midnight (in accordance w/ Origin.)

Oh well. I guess I'll stick w/ my Origin pre-order I got for $47 and a free copy of Dead Space 2.

Any idea how big the BF3 file will be? Otherwise I'd rather wait 2-3 days for Newegg.

Says 15 for disk, 10 for digital. Not sure why it would make any difference.
It's going to be a big install though

Serious compression, I'd imagine.

Damn, not surprised though. Although it's too late to go back to my Newegg Preorder but the $5 will be worth it in the end. Might take a day or two to download it but what the hell, I don't need to play BF3 right now.

You PC elitist snobs need to STFU and stop posting garbage bullsh*t totally off-topic and irrelevant to the game / deal...

BTW, I got in on this deal. After my $34 trade-in credit from Black Ops, I only have to pay $11 for BF3 on PC.

It's too bad Amazon has the worst pre-order bonus though. Dog tags? Really?? Even Best Buy has a better bonus...

Double-dipping on BF3. Getting it for PS3 too.

Hey CAGs!

I've got some fun news for you, and I'll give you all a fully updated post shortly but I wanted to get this in front of you immediately.

Pre-order games for up to 30% off:

Battlefield 3: $41.99 - 30% off
Assassin's Creed Revelations: $34.99 - 30% off


I'll keep updating over the next few minutes.

Cheers,
Tony


I just got home from work, and that's awesome. I've already pre-ordered everything but the Sims 3 Pets at other places, but I'm hitting Amazon up for the Pets expansion. I was going to log in tonight and pick up NBA 2k12 anyway.

I can probably trust that we'll see NFS The Run show up soon, so I'll keep holding off on buying it anywhere.

Glad to have you all the way on board, Tony.
