That must have been one hell of a price mistake, because 70% off $95.87 is $28.76. I think this puts to shame even the amazon $10 sales.

I got my order in barely before the cutoff. It was harder than trying to order the Nexus 4. It looks like they ran out of Blink and Fallout 3 serial keys. I was scared they would run out of other games as well so I activated the rest.

Yay! I don't feel so bad now for spreading misinformation.

Yup. BUT, look at the title of this pack: "New Year Collection". It's also listed now as "Coming Soon". I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but it MIGHT be coming back. Though I seriously doubt it will be back at this $28 price, especially since:

Quote:
Notice:

Due to an error in our system the price for this bundle was wrong and lower than it should have been. The bundle offer have therefore been taken down, and is no longer avaialbe to purchase.

Because of the high demand and sale on this bundle we have run out of serials for most of the titles. We will not get new serials until middle of January next year.

If you want a refund for this bundle, please contact the support.
Anyway, congratz to anyone that made it in on time. Sorry I couldn't bring you the deal earlier and that it wasn't less "painful" to get.

i was able to get an order ID in the middle of the chaos that was yesterday trying to access the site, and i got to the part that i would sent me an verification email, which never came.

i went to sleep and when i woke up i saw that the deal was over, i went to my order history and i had the order in pending status, so i continue with it and was able to pay $28 and got the games in my gamersgate library! but they are out of keys lol

middle january? well...i can wait...

Eh, how does a price mistake that causes such a large influx of traffic go unnoticed for that long?

The part that really sucks is that they ran out of keys for Bethesda to sell the bundle in this holiday season.

Since I'll be playing Planetside 2 until the new year anyway (double XP and all), the Skyrim key is more than enough to tide me over until they restock everything else.

Just a quick update for anyone waiting for keys... looks like you WILL be getting them:

Quote:
Dear ,

Over the holidays we had a few problems with our site that affected you and your purchase of the Bethesda New Year Collection or the Borderlands 2 Four-Pack. We mistakenly advertised these packs at a price much lower than intended.

As difficult as it is for us, we will be honoring the price that we advertised – we´re currently waiting on serial keys to complete your order and will deliver them as soon as possible.

We want to apologize for our mistakes and the amount of time it has taken to resolve everything. Please be aware that due to these issues, our support team is under heavy pressure – we will be answering all tickets we receive, but it may take longer than usual until things calm down.

We hope that you can be pleased that this issue has been resolved, and that we can continue to deliver fantastic deals and some exciting new releases as we move forward.

Best regards,
GamersGate Team
