I haven't seen any good sales on like Origin for example. Have they not gotten the concept?

Look how much attention gamersgate got from just one sale alone.

Didn't EA come out and say they hate the Steam sales? I'll try and find a link to the story.

edit: This was the article I was talking about. The guy who said it is the Senior Vice President of Global Ecommerce. http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/06/06/ea...rty-%E2%80%9D/. I think EA is pissed they can't price gouge the PC market.

Man, I just realized how short Spec Ops: The Line is. I'm more than 3/4 done with the game and I've only played four hours .

It may very well cheapen Intellectual Property, but that's only worth what you can sell it for anyway. If you make more $$$ selling gobs of copies under $20 then that's better for the company.

But if EA was opposed to these types of sales then they never should have opened Origin as a storefront in the first place. They'll never compete as a distribution platform without them. The only thing it does is bring all the EA games into one platform, which they already had anyway.

New flash sales btw

and Hotline Miami has an easy community vote win coming in 9h30

Though Ace of Spades is also in this vote for 50% off, i know you were interested
And it wasn't even close to winning.

Get it, it hasn't been below 50% unless you consider that Gamefly deal with the voucher yesterday

Plus even in the off chance you will have spent 2,50$ more or whatever it's fully worth it

Sounds good. I didn't think it would drop any lower. $12.49 is a pretty nice price anyways.
