Well lots of cheap watches and socks. I think games are an easy quick fix for last minute shoppers and amazon knows this. Why discount stuff that will sell at a higher price? But why did they send an email announcing the ALL video games gold box? lol

Emailed Amazon customer service and Jeff@amazon.com. Bezos is the CEO. They must be having a long overdue meltdown in gaming. I received the email that this Gold Box Event was to occur today. I hope you all forward your comments to Jeff ASAP so we can resolve this and find out if Amazon is serious about us gamers anymore.
Amazon and Jeff need to hear from you!!!

Not that I give a Fuck, but are you inferring that Move and PSN games aren't counted?

Keep in mind the email says there would be a gold box event. Didn't mention all-day event or multiple gold box deals, just a singular event. The PS3 deal is that event. Where's the misinformation?

Amazon customer service does not how to respond to this. They have no guidance. This problem goes allot deeper into the way amazon Video Game VP has managed their division. Please email Jeff@amazon.com. It is the only way that corporate feels the pain. In fact, they probably don't realize their is a long-standing problem in Amazon gaming. Other than the sales . .. ........

I am pretty sure there is a prototype for this in Japan.

That's weird. Not the reps response, but the fact that you've been on the phone with them for more than an hour over this.

Well, yeah, you got a crappy answerr, because you asked your question in a vague way.


You should have asked what happened to the video games lightning deals that were advertised for today. You have to break it down more for Gilmesh and Sonuttere from Amazon CS.

Amazon CS has really shit the bed lately. I emailed them about some promotional credits I should have received when I bought a game last week, gave them plenty of details about everything, making sure I was very specific.

They reply talking about a completely different item I ordered and just threw a $20 promotional credit at me instead of the credit I should have received, which was much less money.

When Amazon is having these all day holiday Lightning Deals, they often leave out some deals from the initial list and only post them just prior to when they go live. Seems particularly frequent with games. Maybe that's what's going on here.

At any rate, I thank Amazon for offering some kind of a deal on what looks like will be the last PS3 design worth owning. Although I'd rather have had a lower price or a couple of new games of my choice instead of a year of rent-a-game. Shouldn't they call it "Instant Temporary Game Collection?"

Nope -- thanks for playing -- All previous amazon lightening day deals have been the same way and articulated in the same fashion as a list throughout the main gold box page.
This is he first time an advertised All-Gold Box Deal's Day by Amazon is NOT matching up.
Trouble in Amazon Paradise???
I think there is a power play going on within Amazon and this Gold Box Day in Video games is a sign that that positive changes will make us all happier in 2013.
Hopefully....

Yeah, no. And before you start pontificating about how Amazon runs Lightning Deals, you might want to learn how to spell them.
