Just a heads up, PC Gamer is handing out 25% vouchers for Green Man Gaming.

Confirmed to work for Guild Wars 2 purchase Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

edit: being able to buy GW2 from the GMG site may apply to EU-based customers only or some other IP-based trickery

Can't find it either but I did get Borderlands 2 for $37.50.

Not sure, i posted that right after buying mine and it worked then. It still seems to work: i ran search for guild wars 2, clicked digital edition, from there "buy now" and entered the voucher code in the field on right side. It reduced the price and from then it was just matter of normal checkout.

So is the 25% cheaper the reason why they are charging $70 instead of the $60 bucks it costs everywhere else?

Don't know about "everywhere else" -- Arena's own GW2 site offers me the basic edition at 55 EUR which equals $68. Wonders of living in europe, no doubt.

In any case with 25% off that amounts to 50-odd so still quite a bit cheaper than $60?

It's 60 US for me on the GW2 site.  I was just wondering why it was priced differently on that site.  Seemed weird to me.

I'm guessing the pricing and availability may be IP-based; i've used US-based proxy to connect to their page instead and the search would no longer show Guild Wars 2, but on the other hand i could buy Secret Wars which wouldn't show when using my regular connection.

So perhaps it's showing you the price intended for EU market (and also explains why it doesn't show at all for some), though it's weird you wouldn't get the same treatment on the Arena site.

FYI that coupon is working for US now but you don't get the 3 day head start.

Really? How weird, the EU edition lists both the 3 day headstart and beta access as part of the package.
