    Bonus about todays is, they are only $3.74, so not that bad even if you don't have a ton to spare.

    Pandora Tomorrow isnt in there. Ill rebuy the first 3 games when they arent 9.99. I miss Chaos Theory. I already own it but it doesnt work in 64 bit windows and i dont want to dual boot just for that game.

    Was just about to post that. :)

    Pandora Tomorrow was more like an expansion anyway. Chaos Theory worked fine on Vista Home Premium X64 for me.

    Doesnt matter if it was an expansion it was still a part of the series and it should be included in the deal. :)

    I coudlnt get it to install on x64 at ALL. It would just tell me that it could not run with this version of Windows.

    cross-platform support? if you buy the PS3 version you get a second copy on PC for free and a $20 credit at Amazon for $54.99.

    some people find that getting it on three platforms for the one purchase to be quite fantastic for their money. (PC, Mac, PS3)

    I hate free things!

    Then don't buy it for PS3, problem solved? Because one person likes cheeseburgers doesn't mean everyone else will. Just sayin

    I was really pissed when i made the original post for an unrelated reason but I still stand by what i said. I wont buy it for the PS3 because i dont own one and I never will own one or a Sony product. Ever.

    Well if you don't own a PS3, there is no reason to buy it for one, I wouldn't either if I don't own one. But for us that do, it's a great deal, I'll be picking it up for PS3, I won't be playing it on PS3, but I want to toy around with Steam on it.

    Just nabbed the GTA package, that's the whole set for me. I wish Rockstar would port Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire.

    What bumblebee said, got it for basically $35, plus it allows me to tinker with Steam on my PS3, and I still get it on PC. So if I wanted to show some friends I don't have to drag my comp to their place, or any other tricks, just bring PS3 disc as almost all of my friends have one.

    No reason to buy it on Steam as I will have it on Steam and get a fee other copy and a $20 gift card.
