I'd love to be wrong, but I'm not sure the Arcade bundle will happen, especially for $5 after coupon. All of the games in the bundle are great titles and each alone is easily worth $5. To get them all in one fell swoop for a fiver doesn't seem realistic when you consider how much Microsoft has invested into the digital space ever since entering the games industry.

You're doing it wrong. The Microsoft spies are all over. You're supposed to say: "Pfft, I'll only buy it at $10 before coupon!"

Glad you mentioned Black Ops series.

I still need Black Ops 1.
I'd love to see Black Ops 1 hit the EC list at $10 pre-coupon / $5 after coupon. ;)


I completely support this one. Been wanting it for a long time, but activision is not helping.

For those who are waiting to see BLOPS1 on the EC list, it won't happen :(

Id like to see some Activision deals, Black Ops, MW3 etc along with some Sega Love, ie: A classic Sonic Pack that includes 16bit through to DC.

This years EC sale started off great with the 2k bundles, THQ stuff and Max Payne 3 but since then its been mostly underwhelming, the EA stuff isn't anything to get too excited over. I might be the minority here but I don't really care for EA stuff I cant get on steam.

Im not sure who the "editor" is but his choice of "games of 2012" is not super(Farming Simulator?), maybe renaming it to New Year Sale or something would be more appropriate ;)

PS. Not really a complaint, just would like to see more non EA stuff.

I remember that the Editor's Choice from 2012 had several pages with deals... but this time I only can see 2 pages and not with deals, because the games are at full price.

Our coupons will expire on January 31, so we only have 13 days left, and I can't find any good deal to use my $30 of coupons

"Editors' Choice" really should be renamed "Publishers' Choice", since the "editor" doesn't get to offer sales without approval from the IP owners. I don't blame Tony, I blame Activision/WB/Sega/Capcom/Squeenix for not playing ball. (And while I'm calling out publishers for not playing ball -- hey Bethesda, you got some 'splaining to do!)

Exactly, I just bought 3 games with my coupons, Hotline Miami, Max Payne 3 and The Walking Dead, awesome deals... but I would like to see more games, like BLOPS 1, The Amazing Spiderman, Bully, etc, I know that this is not Tony's problem, I'm not blaming him, but the publishers! I want to use my $30 of coupons! :)

Good luck on getting Activision deals. They are like the worst at offering deals. There games hold there prices high for a longtime for no better reason than squeezing all the $$$ out of the customers as they can.

I don't care too much about DRM. I just would rather have all my games within Steam, regardless of what DRM the game uses.

Even though DRM is obviously pointless and just causes more headache for most customers than anything. Any game you would want to play is basically available for anyone to torrent, so DRM is not going to stop them. DRM only gets in the way of legitimate customers who want to buy the damn game and just play. I don't need your extra game community, or your download manager. I've got Steam, and that does everything I need, and keeps all my games grouped in one place, which is what I want, and which is why I buy the games in the first place.

I like paying for the games I like. But DRM is not going to bother me, because if it ever gets too intrusive, I'll just download wherever the game lets me play with the least intrusion.

Yeah, $5 for either bundle is ridiculous. I hope it is not an all or nothing situation. I'm just hoping for a sweet deal on Fable 3 + all DLC so I can buy 2 of them.

Neither Syndicate nor Crysis bundles have flipped yet but the other two have.

One reason I want my Ubisoft games on Steam is I know that I'll be able to get the DLC at a nice discount during a Steam sale.


I'll give you that one. That is a huge advantage. I don't really do DLC so it doesn't affect me as a rule but I do expansions and it's always bugged me that it's cheaper for me to buy Tropico 4 and the expansion on Steam than to buy the retail expansion.

And don't forget that the Steam Editions™ of all those terrible Kalypso games contain some extra content arbitrarily withheld from other purchasers, like an extra island + extra presidente clothes.

Maybe they messed it, as the Syndicate phyisical one was lowered to 7.95$ and the digital one is still at normal price.

Terrible? I rated it it as my third favourite game of 2011 (2nd on the PC) :)

I could live without the extra island because at time of release Tropico 4 retail was just a little over half the price that Steam wanted. :D

While I was unable to redeem Madden 08 through the Origin client, it did work when activating it at https://activate.ea....meactivation.do (as recommended by MysterD).

but I would like to see more games, like BLOPS 1, The Amazing Spiderman, Bully, etc,


Amazing Spiderman is a wicked cool game that just runs like shit. No matter what settings I run it on it still has massive frame rate issues, especially with AMD cards. As far as I know Activision still has yet to update or patch the game. There was a work around for AMD cards like with Fallout New Vegas replacing the .dll file just before you launch it but it didn't work for me. Beware of these and other issues before you buy it. I regret buying it on release.

It's one of the worst port I've ever played, even worse than SR2. Especially on AMD cards... it's just unplayable.

Though, the moon-swing was really bad so it's not like we're missing a lot here...

I tried redeeming Madden 08 on Origin and was unsuccessful. NHL 09, however, is redeemable.



yeah, if i can't add it to my origin i'll probably pass - i wonder why EA doesn't even list it on origin any more? if it was i'd at least be able to convince their support to add it for me

Origin support added it for me, without problems.
