    On D2D, i just did it and got it for nothing haha.

    EDIT: I have Mafia on disk some were and was thinking of pre ordering it to play again because i cannot be assed look though the piles of disks. So thought i'd check how much it was on D2D ( in hoping that i don't have to run steam ). And there it was $0.00 and actually downloading it now.

    Maybe it's a mistake maybe not i have no idea.

    Nice. Downloading now. Thanks. :) Kinda lame that their download manager doesn't work in Firefox, though.

    "Hey, Bob. Sales for Mafia just went through the roof."
    "Hey, that's cool. Oh, wait. GOD, NO!"

    Either that or this is deliberately to 1) Advertise the upcoming sequel and 2) Get people to make D2D accounts.

    You can just download it without using the download manager. Download managers are pretty crappy in general anyway.

    Damn.. When I hit "Continue Checkout" it just refreshes the screen.



    Why am I the only one this isn't working for? Tried with both Chrome and IE8:(

    Haha. Awesome find. Downloading this now, is the game actually any good though? I've seen Mafia 2 advertised on Steam.
