Thanks a lot, that equal to 75% off on steam. Awesome! Now I don't have to wait 10 days.

These sales are huge for this game. I've been pimping this game ever since it came out and now a bunch of fence sitters are going to finally jump in.

I'm glad.

Are you 100% certain?

I bought Arma 2 Combined Operations on Amazon digital store for $14.99, and it's in the Steam list but the Activation Key didn't work for Steam.

Quote:
Arma 2: Combined Operations CD Keys in this format: 1AB2C-D3FGH-456I7
Quote:
Sniper: Elite V2 CD keys in this format: 12345-ABCDE-6789F
If it unlocks on Steam I will buy it, otherwise I will wait until it goes on sale on Steam.

EDIT: I bought the game and the Amazon product key unlocks on Steam, downloading the game now from Steam.

only certain games unlock on steam there's an official list on steam support or you can usually just look on amazon's software requirements and it'll say "steam"

Quote:
Additional Info: Steam account and internet connection required for activation. Broadband connection and service required for multiplayer connectivity. Activation keys will not work in Germany.

Game Downloads are reserved for USA customers according to Amazon purchase page for this game.

Thank you Amazon for letting me know after I have inserted my story of life together with credit card details

Don't know why... Digital downloads should be the convenient solution to distribute games to world wide purchasing power and to counter piracy.

Possibly the US-government is sponsoring and subsidizing games in land to keep the public distracted from political reality (wild guess)

Steam Flash Sale 24.99
Amazon Deal of the Week 14.99

Steam definitely fails on this one.

Cool, thanks. I bought it via amazon. Where is the steam list that shows what games can be activated on steam when you buy it from amazon?

Don't know, but I just bought it off Amazon and activated it on Steam.

Edit: I just reread your question and this might be what you're looking for.

I saw the flash deal and was thinking "Well Amazon still wins here".
