I just looked but it says price is $164.88 !!!

Overpriced compared to prices on Steam and you don't have the advantage of getting them on disk - they are still downloads!

You could get the complete Deus Ex pack included in that same price bought direct from Steam.

Yes - I see it now and at that price it is worth it.

In the UK you can add it to the basket but you can't check out - US only.

How does this work since you are downloading on Steam and we have Steam in the UK?

I bet someone in the US could buy it for you and pass the key(s) over to you.

If you buy downloadable games on Amazon do they supply a Steam key or is it via Amazon's cloud? I presume they must supply a Steam key since they need to be activated on Steam.

Anyone know if Steam keys are regional? I know games are released in different regions on different dates but I assumed that was just a shop thing?

If anyone has bought it and knows they got a Steam key(s) I can refund a payment by PayPal if you grab me a copy!

(PS Seems to be online again)

It's back up, and it is a good deal, however I think most of the games are downloadable through Amazon only, and only 3 have online keys (Steam).

Thanks - I won't bother pursuing it then. I have a number of the games anyway.

I was incorrect.  You can do both.  Once you purchase the bundle, go to your amazon downloads and there is a button to "view code".  All of the games have it and they are Steam redeemable!   :Thmbsup:

Is anyone in the US willing to help me get this? Since all games have steam codes, and that is all I need.
