    i did the same thing, mtommi... steam said it would be free for those that pre-ordered gtr evolution...

    when it came out last night, it wasn't free... so i just bought it...
    now this morning, people are getting it for free....

    i've mailed steam support and am waiting to hear back from them... :thumb:

    And if you bought GTR-E in the shop, you won't get it for free? -.-

    nope - it's just for people who pre-ordered thru steam... something about wrong price or some such... i stopped paying attention after the bit where they said "free"... :D

    Indeed. GTR Evo was cheaper on steam compared to any other shop here in the UK. So not to sure how we get it free due to a pricing mismatch but hey. No complaints here :peace:

    ok, steams reply:

    right, this is bs, correct?

    the majority of you guys that got it free just got the expansion back, didn't you?

    And I payed $20 for it last night, even though I didn't even play it. What a smart move by me!

    Personally, I feel a little bitter about how this all panned out...

    I bought STCC through Megastore Sweden for £31, as I got sick of waiting for Steam to release it digitally, since the official launch date of 19th September.

    I ordered GTR Evo through Play on Wednesday just gone, as I could get the RACE/Evo bundle for £18, rather than paying $36 (~£22) through Steam for just the expansion.

    I've bought every Simbin associated sim since the original GTR.

    Yet those of you who found that prices lowered a little (<£5?) at release of Evo, compared to pre-order, get something I paid £21 for free!:nono:

    Normal market forces dictate that something in demand, or is new technology, tends to cost more initially and the price is gradually lowered so that a retailer can sell stock that might otherwise gather virtual dust. So in in Evo situation, there is nothing fundamentally wrong in the price lowering post-release.

    But then Steam is selling a digital download, not a burnt DVD with a paper manual and a protective case. So how the heck do they justify charging more for an expansion than a physical disc containing a bundle?

    I don't begrudge parting with cash to help the future of of Simbin, but I will be damned if I will let Steam take any "slice of the pie" through me for the near future i.e. If I can get a product through other means than Steam, I will!
