Tony! How long will the BF3 deal last for??

I'm debating canceling my Origin Pre-order and switching to Amazon depending on whether or not Origin pre-orders allows us to play right at midnight or not...

They won't, the listing shows 1PM EST, 10 AM west coast.

So even Origin pre-orders won't be able to play until 10 AM PST?
Or would this only apply to Amazon pre-orders?

No clue about Origin, but from the preorder page on Amazon:

This item will be released on October 25, 2011 at 10:00 AM (US/Pacific)
Pre-order now! Sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc.

Yup. I am aware of this.

If Origin pre-order is the same way (can't play until 10 AM/sometime in the morning) I might as well switch to Amazon.

I would be willing to pay an extra $6 to play at midnight (I got BF3 for $52 on Origin)

I'm going to play this on consoles to avoid Origin. And I'm not American so I take this moment to kvetch a bit more about the paucity of games and particularly deals on Amazon.ca.


avoid Origin?

you some kind of hippie?

I personally think the back to karkland map pack is worth it. It includes 4 maps AND it includes a wide set of karkland guns. Most likely the cheapest you'll see this entire pack is a $15 DLC.

Back to Karkland weapon pack


Maybe so, thanks I'll try to decide. I wish this was on Steam instead of Origin, although I'm not really anti-Origin.

This is definitely the cheapest the LE version (pre-order) will get. Even if the game gets cheaper than $41.99 after release, it will not contain the DLC pack for free. To me at least, this really is one hell of a deal.

As for Origin...it's not that big of a deal. Sure I'd prefer it if EA just stuck with Steam, or utilized the same login method as BFBC2, but it's fine.

Can't wait until the 25th! :D

Sorry, totally misread you.

Yeah, with the back to karkand expansion, this is about the same as buying it for $30 as the expansion will be at LEAST $10. Even if it hits 30 on BF, it'd effectively be the same thing to me, and it won't go lower for a few months. Seems worth it to me.

They raised it up to $50.99, right after I finally got someone to cancel my Origin pre-order.

Man, thank you for this deal and the heads up-on it! Last night I canceled my new egg pre-order (the 48$) deal for this. I have all of the current AC's for ps3 so I think I'll stick with it there. Otherwise I would have definitely capitalized on that deal as well.

Thanks for the info, OP! You saved me a ton of cash. I've had a $25 GC sitting in my Amazon account. Getting BF3 for $17 is a great birthday present for me.

They added Saints Row 3 @ 39.99. Nice. Really on the right track.

I'd say THQ would be all over having a decent partner on this stuff. I've seen their PC games be very good over the past couple of years. Not sure how they've been selling. The latest Red Faction games was one of my favorites in recent memory.

Will Saint's Row 3 digital preorder come with the Genki pack? Definitely considering, but THQ store has the digital download with the Genki pack and Season pass (3 mission packs worth ~$20, apparently) for $49.99. I don't expect Amazon to match that, but it's worth a mention.

*edit* VVV - Ordered then. Thanks!

The Genki Pack will be part of this pre-order offer. Thanks for the question!

Anyway you guys could flip the switch to bring it back to 30 percent off for Battlefield 3, I was trying to figure out a way to get my 20 dollar game credit to work with it but to no avail.

Was ready to purchase bf3 tonight but saw they upped the price to 50.99 now (15% off). Not sure if that is a mistake or not. Will wait it out and see.

It's not, Tony said many times in the thread that the price was a temporary offer.

Newegg has a boxed copy $3 less right now.

darn :\ My fault for snoozing too much on this deal I guess haha. Think I'll probably wait a month or so after release then to get it at a good price point. *looks at backlog and cries*

Tony,

I just tried to preorder Battlefield 3 but my $20 Credit for Gears of War 3 was not being added. So I contacted Live Chat on Amazon to see if I was doing something wrong but they said that I could not use it for PC downloads. I was wondering if you could see if this can be changed because I and I know other CAGs would like to use our credit for these great deals on PC downloads.


UPDATE: Tony is the man, went ahead and pre-ordered Battlefield 3 like he said and then he got CS to apply my Gears of War credit so my total came out to $21.99. Thanks again Tony. I will be getting more stuff from Amazon VG Downloads because of the great service.

Bump.

So happy that Amazon is letting us pre-load in just a few hours.
So we should get an email with activation key in the email soon, right?
