I think situations like the people that bought Hitman Absolution for $30 from Amazon before the $20 promotion and got a $10 credit speak for themselves. There was no obligation to do so, but it happened. It shows respect and it makes you feel like a valued customer.
The thing with sales prices is that it's kind of annoying getting one thing for one price just to see it with a lower price the next day or few days.
I think it's because Tony already tell us the prices before even the actual sales take place. So in a way, I think we are kinda spoiled
I don't remember seeing that with other DD stores. Last minute promotions, like with the $5 publisher coupons, that seems unpredicted.
Last Steam summer sale I got SRTT pack for $25 in a flash deal (or a daily deal). I know I got it after I saw the same price twice, so I thought I shouldn't let is pass. And just to see in the last day of the Steam sales the same pack was being sold for something like $13. Yeah I got a bit upset, but, what gives. Sales prices sometimes are crazy.
And now people bought SRTT for $2.50 on Amazon with the $5 THQ coupon. I could not predict that! Good thing I bought the game and had time to play it, and most important, enjoyed playing. Otherwise if I got stuck comparing price drops I would only annoy myself furthermore. Price drops are the natural order of the market. Comparing price drops will only bring annoyance.
That's my feedback.
You know I bought the Darksiders Franchise pack as well and it never even occured to me that I could have save 5 buck by waiting, mainly becuase I though the sale was up in a day or so. However I am not disappointed, disgruntled or angry in the least. I got a recent game and all dlc for under 14.00 along with a spare copy of the first game. Im cheap as they come but stuff happens, I thought it was an amazing deal when I bought it. It still is, now that I have thought it through would I have rather paid less, of course I am a CAG. However we have been the recipients of a amazing set of deals today and throughout this year from Amazon and Tony and I for one wish to keep it coming.
So to Tony keep up the great work!
P.S. (if you wanted to give me 5 dollars off retroactively thats ok too : D )
You pretty much summarized what I took many lines trying to say.
