I don't think I've ever heard someone use "book" instead of "pre-order"

Looks like a dodgy translation - the title is pretty ropey.

This makes me sad cuz i know gamestop will probably not be doing any good deals like this :( i already paid off 4 games D: i wants 2 more ><

They need to do that on the US Amazon website. I know I got $10 off BF4.

So B2G1? That title is so weird lol.

Read the title about 4 times. Sadly it was probably the highlight of my day.

Just going by the image here , i buy two of these games on the left and i get 1 free on the right ? am i right?

That's how it works, but only for those who preordered a PS4 and received a promotional mail from Amazon... so this deal is not for everyone.

Plus one game in Germany costs 69€ which is 95$. I think for that price it should be a standing promotion.

You're bringing up the same old argument Australians use about their prices. It's not as simple as the exchange rate, jobs pay more per hour in Germany so things cost more, it works out pretty standard.

:/

that's wrong! The deal is not limited towards a preorder! Everyone can order 2 games on the left and get one free on the right ^^
KUV1977  +   672d ago
Maybe so, but not at the same rate.
http://www.ilo.org/global/r...

per hour in USD
Germany: 25.8
USA: 23.32

Germany earns more: 10.6%
Germany pays more per game: 37.9%

Does that seem fair to you? Even if you account for taxes the gap is not that big. Also the value of the product does not change. The price difference with games is okay-ish but they do the same thing with more high cost articles. The projector I am gonna buy is 2999$ and 2999€ which is over 1100$ more. That is not at all covered by better hourly wages and also does not materialize in better value.

The game prices taken into account are psn-prices that are similar to retail prices on day of launch, meaning US: 59$ and GER: 69€.

Edit:
@NightmareLuffy: It's not wrong. The terms clearly state that you must have a preorder and a promotional code.

As per Amazon: "Diese Aktion gilt nur für Vorbesteller einer PlayStation 4-Konsole und in Verbindung mit einem Gutschein-Code, den Sie per E-Mail erhalten haben."

Haha. What?

If you read the "whole story" you'll find the entire text is translated from Spanish by google translate. Like noMercy said: If you buy two items of the games in the left picture you get one for free.

Don't see why N4G needs to link to autotranslated articles though.

Buy two games (BF4, Fifa, CoD, AC, NFS) and get another one for free (Knack, Killzone, DriveClub).

But a game in Germany costs 69,99€ (VAT inlcuded) which is around $96!!!

The Amazon response to Target deal, this is good!
Visualift  +   672d ago
Amazon has always like to steal the spotlight... and I have no problem with that. Please, just bring this deal to the US.
