Buying Left 4 Dead 2 ?
« on: October 04, 2009, 01:57:16 AM »
As with l4d valve is offering 4 packs of this game, the price of which works out to be cheaper per person than if we all purchased it individually.  I propose that those wishing to pre-order the game get together in groups of 4 to take advantage of this.  If you are interested in this idea please sign up bellow


List of who wants game   

Group 1
Ryan
Tirrel
Enef
DbD
(tirrel has bought it enef and ryan have paid him)

Group 2
Carth
Zeus - has bought it
Zofo
ekay

Gruop 3

It'll work out as £20.-- per person this way. Rather than £27 (pre-order price).
I'd also like to point out that the Steam pre-order price is the same as Amazon/Play.com, which is a first as Steam is usually over priced.

So going for the 4 pack would work out as very cheap indeed.

I'm interested in going halves (quarts?), although I can never find the time to play L4D1 anyway. So might need to think about it. Anybody know when the pre-purchase finishes/ (ie, deadline to decide if I want to get it).

@Zofo, if you order off Steam, it'll be Steam automatic steam download when it's released (and demo download before that). Very hassle free - as with all valve games.

Steam is usually over priced.

Steam is usually slightly more expensive when buying 3rd party games. In my experience, Steam is often the cheapest place to pick up Valve titles.

It costs €45 here which is £40. >:(

How does this deal work? Do you all have to buy it each or does one person pay? It would be awesome if I can get it for £20 (and an English version instead of the censored German one!) and someone gifts it to me. And then I will pay you for it. :)

Edit: disregard that. I forgot that I got my account unlocked, so I can buy as if I was in Britain

i'm in. The way the 4 pack works is one person pays and gifts it to everyone else. So everyone would have to give their money to one person!

Well, I'm guessing you can't gift your own copy (ie, you gift 3 copies).
I am gona guess that more than 4 people will want to get this and participate in the split, so there will probably be a need for more than one instigator.

Well, I'm defo in. Whoever buys the pack, post/email/PM/IM/TS/mumble your preferred way of receiving payment. I'm guessing this would be paypal?
