    No minimums, so if you put a 10 game in the cart, it's free.
    Cheers, I grabbed both Blazing Angel games. That's some nasty business about the "Extended Download Service" but I guess we're both amoral here.

    EDS essentially allows you to download your purchase again for up to two (2) years, in the event your computer crashes or the downloaded file becomes damaged or corrupt. It can be thought of as an insurance policy in case anything goes wrong with your computer or the downloaded product. When you have downloadable items in your order, you will see a link to add EDS to your order on the shopping cart page or the checkout page. Upon payment of the specified fee, Digital River, Inc. ("DR") agrees to provide you (the "End User") a service that enables the End User to make multiple downloads of digital computer software products (a "Product" or "Products") purchased in a single order (an "Order") and downloaded from this Web site (the "Site") for a period of two (2) years after the date the End User purchases the Product (the "Service"). Click here for full details about EDS.

    Wait, does that mean that the old anti-Steam "You don't own the games, you're just renting them" argument is literally true for Ubisoft's service?

    Btw, I love how they try to make it sound as if they're doing it as a favour to the customers.

    If you don't spend ~€7 per game, you can't redownload it after 30 days, and even if you do it only extends your ownership by another 23 months. I think certain games that use uPlay or Steam do not apply, but their older titles (like Blazing Angels) keep the policy alive.

    Holy crap, that's... crap! I'll never buy from them again! Well, after AC3 I'll boycott them! Okay, probably not, but I sure as hell won't recommend their games to others! Or maybe I will, but I won't feel good about it!

    That'll teach them!

    It's only one game per account.
    It's worth to note that Firefox can't work in the store, I had to use IE *shudders*.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Flickr, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    If memory serves, the last times I ordered from them (SC: Chaos Theory LE box set at launch, and I think one of their steamworks games a few years later) it took a few days for the order to get processed in each case.
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    Their European promo code thing was abused by people creating multiple accounts to get free games (create account, use coupon to get a game with a Steam-redeemable key, then redeem, trade or sell the Steam key and repeat the whole process), and it seems to have slowed down Ubi's processing of orders.

    There is a weekend GTA4 sale in gamersgate, with some strange pricing... The complete edition costs the same as tales from liberty city and includes TfLC and the main game.

    It also seems like they don't want to go head to head with current GTA4 sale on steam (It's a bit more expensive).

    Still considering getting it though (from GG. I prefer giving them my money), but I don't know if I'll ever have the time to play.

    Edit: They fixed the pricing and it's now cheaper than steam (with IGN discount).
    It's also on sale at GMG.

    The 2-year limit is actually set by Digital River, who provide the store backend. EA used to have the same restriction and charged for EDS as they also use DR but they managed to get this lifted. Not sure if DR waived the fee or if EA pick up the cost. Seems pretty backwards for Ubi to still be using EDS but maybe their typical customer is even less savvy than EA's.
    Open-faced sandwiches are upon you whether you would risk it or not.

    Something I wonder about that EDS, does it only affect my downloading the game, or if I manage to keep a copy tumbling through my hard drives that copy will be useless after 2 years?

    It's only the downloading link that is lost.

    Bioshock is free on GameFly. Their client is a requirement, and you also need to supply your personal data and CC number.

    Probably to stop abusers from creating accounts... although I'm not sure it'll really stop a determined abuser.
