Borderlands 2 pre-order - combine to buy 4-packs?

Postposted on Sat Aug 18, 2012 11:35 am

I remember the last Borderlands L4D2 release, people got together and bought 4-packs so the per-copy cost was cheaper, just pooled money via Paypal for one person to buy.

Any interest in doing this again?

Prepurchase price for one copy: $60
Prepurchase price for 4-pack: $180

That works out to $45 a copy versus $60 a copy.

...as I was writing this, my wife bought a 4-pack already, so at least on my end we gots 2 extra copies to offload to some unsuspec^H^H^H highly respected members of TR. :D

Good guns!? GOOD GUNS?!

You never used more than one gun! When you did it was:

*click*
Scrot: Damn, wrong gun.
*click*
Scrot: Damn, that's not the right gun either.
*click*
Scrot: Oh, I guess I never changed that gun out, huh. It must be in storage.

AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Those were the best times ever.

You know guys here at TR - you should only have ONE ride when you're goin' around places. But not, he had to have his own ride.

So it went like this most of the time.

Me: Get in, we'll get there faster if we're together.
Scrot: No, I want my own.
Me: Fine. *pause* Why the hell do you always choose the pink one?
Then I did my best to push his ride up into a wall so it was stuck. Then I'd pull out a rocket launcher. Then his ride would be little piles of smoking metal.
Me: Get in.
Scrot: Screw you, I'm walking.

I'm in for one (some chucklehead talked me into canning my preorder and then decided to order locally). Also my landlord wants, so I can be +1.

I can also be the Paypal/Steam concentration point for a four pack, if we get two more on board.

Yup! Evil and sluggo were the first two so we'll pop 'em over to them.

I guess Forge is up for the next group of 2? I'll update the first post to reflect this. Mmmm Evil and sluggo, msg me for paypal info and stuff?

So after a long talk, my landlord has reaffirmed his long-standing and illogical devotion to shiny silver coasters filled with encrypted uselessness. I'm dangling, but still interested in getting three more and buying a four pack.

I've already prepurchased on Steam...but let me look when I get home. You might also post in the "Borderlands 2 goes gold" article.

Good thinking, I posted there too. I need to figure out which paypal account is hooked to our bank account then I can let Evil know what's what. And sluggo too!

Amazon has 4-pack pre-orders for $162. This would be a savings of about $5 per person. I'm not in for one, but I just figured I would let you all know.

I don't know if it's Steam activatable or not.

Not to ruin the 4-pack comradery, but greenmangaming.com has it for $40 with promo code DERHE-RRDER-RINGE

FFS. Worst. Preorder. Ever.

Dropping the prices more and more as release day approaches just makes all of us who already ordered feel like morons. :( :(

Naw, it's ok Forge. Word on the street is that the owners of greenmangaming club baby seals while dumping toxic waste into the fragile arctic tundra and I wouldn't want to support a company like that. I wasn't really interested in going to anyone besides Steam, anyway, so the other cheaper prices don't really get me down too much. :D

All kidding aside, they have an amazing bit of SEO going. Two full pages of their website when you look up "greenmangaming.com complaints" or "problems".
