>.< More games I already own. I think I picked up AP (DRM-FREE) for $4 on GG earlier this year.


I bought it around release for $30 or so at Retail from Best Buy.

Tony,

Are there any chances for Tomb Raider bundle, and or carrying the extra tomb raider games that just got released on steam? I know you have done Square deals before so just wondering. Might be in best interest too for Square, since their new Tomb Raider game is coming out in March, so nice hype and exposure for the series!

Thanks!
PC master race.

Any chance that Far Cry 2 will go back on sale? I completely missed it yesterday.

You can get 1+2 bundled for $6.25 from GGG. Not as cheap as Amazon's price for the single games but better than full price.

Just curious, does the $5 amazon promo stack on January? Or only can get $5 off each 2012 Editor's Choice game?

They don't stack.

This seriously needs to be in the OP or something. It's starting to get asked more than if EA games activate on Steam and that's saying something.

Man I am hot under the collar. Just finished downloading Crysis 2 and found out I had to activate it on Origin! WTH, why won't it work on Steam?

lol

Do the 5 dollar credits activate on steam? Can I use more than one and add it to my steam wallet to stack so that I can get free games from Origin?

There's a review for Hotline Miami where some German (who by the way aren't supposed to be buying from Amazon DD anyway) got all Frau Farbinssina and called it scheisse because it requires Steam.

Germans who live in America aren't allowed to buy from Amazon? o_O Wow, it's kinda ironic that Amazon are being such nazis. How far does Amazon's policy extend on this? Are Japanese people in America allowed to use Amazon? Black people? :bouncy:

Perhaps Tony could update the OP with a list of Amazon's discriminations. :applause:

And why aren't more people discussing the fact that Amazon have matched Steam's $5 Hotline Miami offer? Buy buy buy!

There's no reason to buy Hotline Miami right now unless you absolutely MUST play it right now. It's eligible for the $5 promotion in January, so even if it has no sale, it will still be $5 after a coupon.

If it DOES go on sale, even a minor sale, it will be under $5 obviously, and if it hits 50% off again, it will be free. Hence, wait!

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

I think Tony is a wee bit busy.

It's not Amazon's fault. Complying with German laws is a good bit of extra work. Obviously Amazon made a business decision not to dedicate resources to that yet.

I don't think ANY store checks your nationality before you buy, do they? They might check what region you're in, but that's slightly different...

Amazon checks billing address and shipping address for tax purposes.

I don't imagine there will be a ton of people who are residing in the US writing a review for a US based store in German.

Anyway it's no big secret that a bunch of Europeans routinely use fake addresses to buy games from Amazon US DD. It's all over RPS and a bunch of other sites where people freely admit to doing it and advise others to do the same.

It was an assumption on my part yes but a likely assumption. I'm sorry if that seems to bother you.

Tony, any chance we'll see a sale on XCOM before Christmas? I've decided it will make the perfect gift for a friend of mine, assuming I can get it at the right price. :)

You do seem to be going out of your way to make up things over which to attack that nitwit ('their first language is German. They MUST be in Germany! They should not use Amazon!'; 'I can't imagine someone in the US writing a review in German!'; 'Other people use fake addresses on Amazon. THIS PERSON MUST BE DOING THAT TOO!').

Wouldn't it be more pleasant to judge them based on the facts? Can't we tease them about complaining that a game download comes as a Steam key (and to be fair, Amazon don't actually advertise that fact).

Then again, this is the Internet. What better place for stereotypes and baseless attacks? ;)

I see Sine Mora is no longer price matched to Steam's price but Hell Yeah still is. Any chance for a re-PM since big picture sale is good to Dec. 10? It is $3.39. Thank you.

Guys, I don't know if I'm just tired, but the debate going down here is striking me as tremendously dumb.

Maybe Amazon plans to have a better price in the future. What I don't get is why Sine Mora was in the casual section. I was fortunate to scroll down low enough to see it on the page.

Wow, that's the first time I've seen a pack like that other than the Origin deal ages ago. The Weapon/Dress DLC comes with the game anyway, you just need to edit the config file to unlock it.. but the remastered version of the original game was impossible to get after the Origin deal ended.

Hi guys,

I want to add something to the discussion above: There has been a thread on Neogaf (I think) about upcoming deals where someone from Amazon.com (if not Tony) stated that everyone who isn't located in the US may create a fake adress in order to buy digital deals from amazon.com.
So I don't see the point why customers from let's say Germany shouldn't do so. I mean keys for steam (bought from a retailer) in the US are region free which means, they can activate them in Germany or any other country. (unless a uncut-version is not activateable in Germany)
All in all it is cheaper in the US compared to Europe. In the US, something costs 5$, in Germany the same product costs 5€, which is nearly 6,50$.

I just don't like that it's also an unfair way for people to dodge paying taxes. I have to pay them in PA, but people out of the country can just use a state that isn't charging yet and get away with something I can't.

If taxes weren't recently added I wouldn't care, but now it feels unfair.
