Deus Ex: Human Revolution for 8 bucks

Post by Feaduin » Sun Apr 29, 2012 6:11 pm

I'm a bit worried that I saw this today on slick deals

http://tinyurl.com/7rsdow3

If a new AAA title drops down to 8 freakin bucks so soon after release, I gotta wonder how terrible sales must have been. This is for the Augmented Edition too. No, the boobs aren't bigger.

But hey! Good news for those who haven't played it yet!

To make this even more delicious, Amazon is doing something right now with games for $10 off, so I just bought this for free. No idea on the details of the deal, but I bet if you buy relatively near the time of this post you should be able to get in on the deal too.

Derek checked it wasn't my account doing something funky cause he's seeing the $10 off on his account too.

Happy game shopping!

Were you seeing the discount before you hit the final purchase button? Or was it just a surprise after you bought? My account isn't showing an additional ten bucks off.

Very odd, I have no idea what is triggering the discount. I can confirm that at least one other person saw it, but I can also confirm that (aside from DamoNicole) at least one other internet-savvy person did not get it. We never got any sort of email or anything saying we got something special, and while Kel does have an Amazon-rewards credit card, I don't have any special associations with them. So weird!

To be clear (though I know it's what you guys already tried), the discount would show up after clicking the "Buy and Download" button, which is the equivalent to "add to cart" for downloadable products. But it's before actual check out, like you still have a chance to enter other promo codes and whatnot.

Well, for any of you out there that are seeing the discount, it opens up some great deals. $2 Just Cause 2, $5 Civ V, or games like DE: Human Revolution or Mount & Blade Warband for freeeeee.

I don't see it in my shopping cart. Could it be an Amazon Prime thing? Checking out Civ 5. I'm actually wary of getting it because Civs tend suck me in for enormous amounts of time.

I have an amazon credit card, don't have prime anymore though. No deal for me. I pushed the cart all the way to the "click here to finalize your order" page and it never changed.

I had Prime at one point, but I cancelled at the end of December, and it's definitely not still kickin'.

Williams winners!

I had an Optimus Prime, but I got mad at my brother and threw it at our family fire place. Broke his leg off. I promised I'd never throw another transformer in anger, after that.

Civ V is going to be launching a MAJOR update in a couple months. An expansion pack call Gods and Kings or some such, it sounds fantastic and will probalby require the base game if you can get it cheaply enough.
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."
