Definitely not. I reached out about doing a promotion and found out we're not even supposed to be selling it (it being Mafia) right now. I'm pressing the button that kills the buy box right now.

Cheers,
Tony


I briefly entertained the notion of using my 2K coupon (the ones that we got towards the end of the year) on Mafia 1. If I had, would I have even gotten a key? If so, would I now be looking at the possibility of that key being revoked?

Yes you definitely would have gotten a key and no we're not revoking keys.

Thanks for the reply. While I didn't actually buy, I'm sure this comes as welcome news to those who did.

Can you provide any insight as to why the game is unavailable for purchase?

It won't work because the searchid won't be the same, it's randomly generated each time you search something.

Good new for those waiting for Far Cry 3...we got Steam keys for the upcoming deal.

Since you managed to get Steam keys to UPlay game, it would be great to try the same with Rayman Origins. It comes DRM free, but it's also published by Ubi. So far steamable copies are distributed only through Steam. Just giving the idea, because I'm still waiting for a decent deal on it. I would rather buy it from Amazon and pretty sure I'm not alone with this.

Yeah it would've been nice if Amazon had Steamkeys for Rayman Origins back during the Ubisoft credit promo.

Did they give you more info, was it a licensing issue? I am always bummed when a game gets pulled, especially considering that with digital copies there aren't the practical limitations of still manufacturing a game, keeping it on shelves, etc. I was really bummed recently when Steam pulled all of the 007 games that I was waiting for a sale on. They may not have been the best games but I still wanted to play them. I did pick up a physical copy of Blood Stone from amazon since it was pulled from Steam.

Tony .... Couldn't you warn us in advance for example? There is literally no place to buy this game digitally right now as the other guys stated ... Meaning the only way to get the game is to pirate or e.g. steal it. Why should we get down to these situations? No way to get a game legally?

Sad thing there was no warning in advance :(


I know that for this game it was too late, but it isn't a bad idea to work with publishers to let you know if a game is going to get removed and then have some sort of clearance sale. Might as well push a lot of sales at the end rather than just silently removing it from the store.

Rayman Origins is drm optional on Amazon and was during the sale for that matter. A few of us got it after one person got it and found nothing (I was the second person to get it and checked too). Steam version is drm free, doesn't even use steam. Amazon doesn't install tages by default. Pretty sure it's a glitch in the installer, but it's better this way. That's another you'll ruin what's there, unless Tony can officially make the swap.

Tony,

Any idea on the Max Payne 3 timing? It's been like 4 days since I bought something from amazon. :D
"Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

Yeah the bundle got canned but we're still doing the base game at $14.99 pre coupon.

Mafia 1 killed. :fridge:
Good that I managed to get a copy before this.

Any word if Mafia II will hit the road too? Or is it safe to hope for a sale, maybe sometime this year?

I'm anxious to know the results about the Microsoft bundle/deals

Would it be possible to see a Mafia II: Digital Deluxe Edition version of the game on Amazon? Or maybe a Complete Edition (DD Edition + all DLCs)? I've been holding on buying this game for a very long time, waiting for a good deal to get everything. But even at 75% on Steam, it always added up to more than 20$ for the whole pack. And there is no "upgrade from standard edition to DD edition" available. That would be so awesome!!

Why exactly do publishers pull digital downloads? It is literally pure profit.

Hey guys,

Been absent working on various stuff, still no final word on the Microsoft stuff.

Good new for those waiting for Far Cry 3...we got Steam keys for the upcoming deal.

For those that don't remember the deal will be:

Standard Edition: $34.99 pre-coupon
Deluxe Edition: $44.99 pre-coupon

The deal runs for 1 day only (or until we run out of keys.)

Cheers,
Tony

So any chance of Blades of Time on sale?
I ask because the game isn't price matched to steam (still full msrp and steam version isn't even on sale)
