I won't use mine, so whoever still wants to buy some software with it, just use it: "Now through February 21, 2013, at 12 a.m. PST, use code 3X7H-XKPLTZ-F3B2NV to save $10 on any software download title sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc." Enjoy!

Ain't played either...

...but I'd love to see Tony make EA and Capcom do a RE6/Dead Space 3 bundle.
Yeah, two different pub's - this'll never happen. ;)

Bitcomposer is a vendor so hopefully! I just asked our Indie Vendor Manager to reach out. Sounds like she sent the email in the meeting we're in.

Cheers,
Tony



Excellent, thanks!

On a sports game? What the hell is he buying? Soccer ball skins?


Actually there is a big in-game store that uses Fifa Points for trading players, upgrading them, getting new contacts, packs (yes Soccer ball skins included lol)

I'd say the opposite. You can get RE6 for like $25 through GMG if you buy it on the UK site, or buy from a UK CAG. RE6 won't be under $25 for a long, long time. It's Capcom.

On the other hand, you shouldn't really buy any game for $40 unless you REALLY want it. It will be cheaper, quickly. Period.


True. I got RE6 pre-order on Steam in a trade and it has higher value. Digital Soundtrack, Artbook, RE5 FREE! and Season Pass would unlock as the final reward.

Last email I got read "I am asking Valve for keys". So it sounds like we're just waiting on Valve to deliver them to him. There is some contract stuff we need to go through as well but that'll likely be expedited once we have product to sell.

Cheers,
Tony


Double-dipping soon! :applause:

Do you have any "welcoming party" planned for the KoA Steam keys? I bought the Origin deal for $9.99 a couple weeks back before you talked about Steam versions. I'd much rather play it through Steam but it'll have to be on a sale for me. Hell, I'd probably buy a few copies.

Really?

Come on now, everyone knows this stuff goes on but you guys really need to stop being so damned brazen about discussing things you shouldn't be doing on a legitimate board.

PS - If you get something from GMG via vpn that happens to have a region lock on it you'll have to again use a vpn to register it to Steam, and doing that risks getting noticed and potentially getting your account banned. Not really worth it since all games are going to go on sale cheaper in your region eventually anyway with a little patience.

Just FYI, it's not that easy with GMG. They are protecting their regional prices better than any other digital distributor. Even overlooking the legal/ethical controversy the easiest way in case of GMG is to find someone from the UK to buy it for you. Period.

Ha, I'm from the UK and I've had my account blocked 4 times since just before Christmas.
I love the GMG sales, but they make it so hard to buy anything without having to beg their customer support to unflag your account when there's a hiccup.

GMG have way too many issues with accepting legitimate payments, I'm skeptical if a VPN would really work.
It's almost hilarious how much money they lose because of their checkout system!

I don't know about a VPN, but using a proxy (Amazon EC2 instance to bypass my company's firewall in my case) will not allow you to purchase (even if the proxy is on the same country as the account)

Forget what the lowest on xcom was, but GMG has it for $16 now with coupon.

No, I am NOT asking for a price match as I already know Amazon doesn't price match international sellers...

GMG is so stupid in regional restrictions. I can't buy any EA games from them while they offer GFWL titles in my region and those GFWL games should NOT be sold here!

1. Just for the record, VPNs, or using one for that matter, is not illegal.

2. You are very right on the second point, VPNs are Steam transactions don't mix that well, purchases, activations, bypassing regional locks etc...
Anybody attempting to do so will be genuinely putting their accounts at risk.

Is CAGROCKS the $15 credit for pre-order followed by a $15 credit after the game is actually purchased?

Yeah, so in this case, using one of the bundles (all $24.99 pre coupon/credit) the cost is:

$18.75 with coupon only
$3.75 with coupon and credit

Again, we'll be evaluating the credit closely and may change it early.
