What is up with FarCry 3 physical media being $39 but the download being $49?

Really hoping to see some kind of sale, but matching their own price at a minimum would be nice.


I'm in the same boat with Black Ops II.. PCDVD is $39 but the Digital is $47.. I asked CS if they'd price match but was given a canned "We only do price match guarantee on TV's" response.. Didn't really argue it, even though they pretty obviously missed my point.

No, unfortunately you needed to buy a 2K game on or before 12/25 to qualify. Will still get the EC coupon, but not the publisher coupons


Damn, I picked the wrong time to hold off on being a CAG. =/

I just submitted a link to their own site for the "found a lower price?" link on FarCry 3.. maybe they will notice.

sweet. I'll do the same. I also PM'd Tony about it.. Less for my specific case and more for curiosity on whether or not Amazon typically price matches that stuff.

Yes. The hand-of-cards look or overlapping cover graphics don't communicate effectively. The THQ pack with all the included game logos over a white background is ace.

Need a new product graphics guy, Tony? I could create a hell of a lot more eye catching and functional images than the ones I'm seeing...

Mace and storm, the short story is physical and digital sales aren't a one to one. Having a warehouse with ten thousand copies of a game and a single text file with ten thousand keys, that is physical space on a shelf, makes the need to sell dvds greater than digital games. The physical side has their own different team than Tony's too.

Wow, can't believe that's an actual game!

Here's a funny review:
5.0 out of 5 stars
Toilet Tycoon is the best toilet simulator

If only this game
Was playable on iPhone
Play while making poo.

My recommendation:
Buy it, play it, live it!

I say Tony leads a small, well equipped team of PCDD commandos into the warehouse, steals hundreds of Steam redeemable physical games, and sells them to us at 90% off! Or for free, if he's feeling generous.

Ya, after watching some Far Cry 3 reviews, it seems like a FPS meets Openworld/Sandbox meets RPG game. I might snag a copy via Amazon of course.

Hasn't it always been this way? I've never seen Amazon PM a flash deal..


Yeah, Amazon doesn't match the flash deals.

:whee:Next you guys are gonna tell me they don't PM International websites.

P.S. Thanks for the great deals!

That game actually looks pretty cool; but the need for 3rd party patches is making me wary of buying it.

Where does it say on the amazon page if the game comes with a steam key or not? I cant find the yellow circle anywhere on any games anymore.

Well, it says either on top, bottom, middle, or system requirement box.

So yeh, just CTRL+F and type "steam"

I believe the promo coupons are tied to accounts and not transferable.

There is no standard, they just put it anywhere in the item description.

The only way to be certain you find it or not is to do a text search of "steam" on the item's page.

TONY, I bought the 2k mega pack cause you said it all activated on steam, but Bioshock 1, Civ IV, and the stronghold collection didn't come with activation codes, and Bioshock 2's code doesnt work at all. WTH man?


Anyone else have this issue with this bundle?

Yes. I know this.

Would have someone buy it, I'd send them money via paypal. They'd give keys.:lol:
