Alpha Protocol - Sale @ GamersGate
GamersGate is offering Alpha Protocol for only $14.99 - certainly a bargain in my book.
More information.

I'm not sure why this is getting highlighted since it's the same price as the boxed copy on Amazon.com (or various Euro retailers who are selling the game for ~GBP/EUR 15.00 if you live on my side of the pond :) ). Even the console versions are selling for a very similar price in most places.

boxed copies are always cheaper, digital downloads are ~30% more expensive at least :/

JDR13 November 24th, 2010 13:58

It's still $29.99-$39.99 in retail over here.

Isn't Amazon.com retail?

Micro Center has it for $10 here in the US. Retail copy…

Couchpotato November 24th, 2010 16:24

Knew I should of waited.Its not a bad game despite its bad press but it definitely wasn't worth $50.

Barbarian November 24th, 2010 16:38

Nice deal, but I am hoping that Steam will discount it even further. Last year there were some incredible Steam deals around the holidays.

TheGameSquid November 24th, 2010 17:05

Oh boy. The year is almost over and I still haven't played it :-/

It may have gotten some bad press, but it was on my "most anticipated" list and I'm doing Obsidian some serious injustice by not having given it a shot.

I should really go out and pick up a copy. If only I wasn't so low and cash and my backlog wasn't so huge.

Melvil November 24th, 2010 20:20

Put that money towards a real game, or buy something on GoG

Alpha Protocol is now this day only 7,50 in steam. Should I buy it? Hmm..

northreign November 24th, 2010 22:27

I just bought it off steam for 7.50 :)

Played some of it from onlive for free to check it out and liked it enough for that price.

Thrasher November 24th, 2010 22:38

Yep, $15 on Amazon for a BOXED and PRINTED MANUAL copy, unless, for some bizarre reason you'd buy it for a console. :p

Zygo November 25th, 2010 00:44

Printed manual ain't worth much if anything- it's hardly the manual to Fallout or Baldur's Gate in length or quality.

GG have dropped their price to this also.

And, yes, you should buy it. The patch even removes the need for activation too, apparently, though whether it's Steam compatible/ is a Steam auto update I do not know.

Starwars November 25th, 2010 01:02


The patch there says it's for "Digital Download" versions as well, so I would assume that it works for STEAM as well. I hope at least since I applied it to my game… Maybe it'll explode next time I start it, ehehee.

Thrasher November 25th, 2010 01:03

You're right. I just looked at the manual available on Steam. It's looks only slightly better than the Mass Effect manual, which isn't saying much…

I'd prefer the Gamer'sGate download over Steam, since it's a file rather than the Steam app.

I guess I need to start checking Amazon more.

There's not much else besides Gamestop and Best Buy in the area I live in, and you rarely find any good deals at either place.

Thrasher November 25th, 2010 01:50

I think the last time I bought a game in a brick and mortar sore was in 2005 (except for an exchange last Xmas).

The time saved by shopping online is HUGE (this is living in LA, though)…

pox67 November 25th, 2010 06:21

I grabbed this on sale as well. I was looking forward to this game but put off by the comments here. I think it will be worth worth $7.50 though.

Amasius November 25th, 2010 07:07

Heh, I finally caved in and created a Steam account only for Alpha Protocol.

All times are GMT +2. The time now is 16:11.
