Please, in 16 hours, we'll have people whining about not being able to download the game, start the game or figure out how to play it.


Way to be optimistic... This Thursday is Thanksgiving here in America - would you like to rain on the Macy's Parade too?

Terminus, you have to consider my background.  I was involved in all three of the Master of Orion series but almost missed this game, which I have since deemed a possible sleeper game of the year in a prior post.  It would be just tragic if Armada 2526 is that successful and I can't claim to have played it on its release day.  I watched Star Wars I on its opening day in San Francisco, and have a track record to keep up.

We're in Eastern US time here, Digital River is in Central US time. What I expect is that it will start going live around 9AM US Central time. I believe it should be fully live by around 10AM US Central time, unless we run into any unexpected issues, but at this point it's at the "flip the switch" stage, so I don't expect any problems.

Regards,

- Erik

Getting very close, I'm just waiting from word from DR that the switch has been flipped. We already gave them the go ahead.

I'm waiting with plastic in hand. Been up all night playing Assassins Creed 2 on my 360. Please hurry so I can give you money, download my new game, and get some sleep. Thanks you. :)

DR is being a bit slow. I just heard back from them that it will be live in the next 30 minutes, so hang in there. I'll post a "Buy Now" link in this forum as soon as it's live, that will bypass any store caching issues.

Does the "coming soon" in the store not work for anyone else?

----------

To add a physical shipment it's an extra $10 PLUS another extra $10.85. That seems unreasonable. I can simply go to Gamestop and get it for $39.99; that saves me the extra $20.85. I'm baffled by these Matrix Games prices and fees. I will call my local Gamestop to see if it's in. I can wait for them to order it if it's not in.

Some might say I can just get the download for $39.99. I prefer to have a disk(a box is cool too) for replaying insurance in the future.

Good point. It's something to consider. I prefer to have my games in their boxes on a shelf. I know it's a minor point but part of a hobby/collection. When I have too many older games I give them away.

I do the same, but lately I have had a desire for some of those older games and they are not there.

$49.99 PLUS $10.85 shipping and handling. Total: $60.84. Seems like a pricing scheme to take advantage of a new release that may be suddenly highly anticipated. I know companies need to profit but...an extra $20.85(total: $60.84) to get as physical copy as opposed to going to retail and getiing it for the $39.99 seems...unreasonable.

Posting this in multiple threads is unnecessary and poor forum etiquette. Please keep comments on this to the new thread you started.

Okay. My three posts were related to the topic of the the three threads; others posted on other topics with similiar responses in more than one thread. (Yeah, I noticed it also deleted from thread: 'Armada 2526 Now Available from Matrix Games!') /smirk. I understand that you want little negativity discussed about your products. Being an open minded host to potential customers is different than being a boss to employees.

Odd way to talk to perspective customers. Also, odd pricing to customers. Other companies include a physical copy with a download at no EXTRA charge.

People might start saying I am trying to argue. I am just responding. I thank you for your responses and I am still watching this game. I hope it succeeds and that we all have fun playing it.

Please respond on this issue in the new thread you created. This is not an odd way to respond to customers, it's basic forum etiquette.

There is no pricing scheme, and it is $39.99 for the Download here, which is the same download price GameStop will have. The physical price here is $49.99 because the pricing in this case was synchronized on the Download price and we cannot offer the Physical at the same price, while GameStop apparently can.

You are not paying any more here for the download than anywhere else. If you prefer to purchase a copy at GameStop, you are welcome to do so.

I think what he's driving at is the Download+Physical shipment is $49.99 PLUS $20 more for shipping and handling fees and tax. Whereby the physical copy from Gamestop is $39.99 and just plus tax quite a bit of a big difference and confusing as heck as to why. It reads like the convenience of downloading it will only cost you $20 more and that is a laugh.
