Amazon are now selling cross platform digital downloads, including quite a few bundles (where have we seen that before?).
Most of the game seem to be Steam downloads, not sure how that'll work out in the long term for repeat business.

I love Amazon. I can get everything shipped to me and reasonably expect it to arrive within two days, without paying shipping. (Yeah, there's that $79 annual membership fee for free 2-day shipping, but based on the kinds of things I order -- and the fact that many things I need ASAP in order to keep my clients running -- it pays for itself well within a year).

I'm not a huge fan of their digital services (other than Amazon MP3, which I think beats the pants off iTunes and Google Play Music). Their Android store, and Amazon's version of Android that ships on their tablets, are a disappointment in my opinion. Amazon Instant Video is nice, and with Prime you get unlimited streaming of certain videos for free ("The Hunger Games" was available to watch free not long after the DVD release). I wish you could stream them in HD on a PC or non-Kindle tablet, though I can understand why they have it set up that way. (You can always of course buy/rent the video to see it in HD if you don't have a Kindle Fire or certain devices like a Roku.)

This idea might work, and it might not. Judging by their track record, I don't have quite as much faith in this stuff as I do in their customer service and physical merchandising/shipping.

I don't believe in luck. What I do believe in is that s*** happens.
