    Amazon Prime 20% no longer applies to "remasters" and re-releases

    Probably because they are a < $60 price tag.

    It's a complete joke at this point. With GCU going under I am not surprised though. No need to compete.

    I suspect that margins for games in general have to be going flat. Release game prices have been mostly the same for over 30 years or more, though the money is made more by volume today. Lots of releases are bargain-bin games anyway and revenue is being made in add-on content.

    Amazon Prime has been increasingly sucky though. "Two Day Shipping" going to 3, 4, or more now.

    Fortunately, I haven't had shipping delays in 4-5 months now, but when they do happen, it's noticeable and frustrating.

    I harldy care when something arrives. The free part is nice, but that tends to suck on the packing side.

    Seems they're really pushing for the food delivery type stuff, atleast in my area. Something I'll never use.

    Video game economics are the new hollywood economics.
