I seem to remember GMT offering games at 50% off if you were a P500 person. Was that at the end of the year?

From the GMT Dec 18th Newsletter:

"Update on the Systems Transition

Last month I told you guys that we might be ready to launch the new website and systems right after Christmas. Well, we've made a ton of progress in the intervening month, but I've decided that it doesn't really make much sense to launch the new site during the holiday season, when our access to key team members and external support is going to be limited.

So, instead, our online teams are all going to get good and rested over the holidays, then work final details in early January, with an eye to launching our new systems shortly thereafter. Thanks for your patience through what has been a very difficult process."

-----
I remember reading a month or two ago that they might have a sale once the system transition is complete, so maybe it will be coming soon.

They normally have a Fall Sale in November, but they didn't this year because of major IT work they were doing. I think the plan is to give credit for 2017 P500s on their 2018 sale, but I could be wrong.

They also didn't do it last year. They said last year that they would give credit for the 2016 P500's. Time will tell how they handle it.

And the lack has kept me in limbo, in terms of buying there games -
directly or otherwise.

Geek Gold to the first poster that can somehow plausibly pin this all on MMP.

And I don't think I've played any of the games I bought in that sale. That is not good.

you guys need to stop buying games, obviously there isn't enough warehouse stock taking up enough room to warrant a sale...

And that's how we traditionally pin this to MMP, don't we? GMT's games are easier and cheaper to acquire and get shipped...

I would be very surprised if they didn't handle it with class.

I usually p500 a couple of titles a year, and then pick up one or two more during the sale. Not having a sale the last 2 years has cut down on my acquisitions a bit, which isn't necessarily a bad thing for my wallet. Ordering from Canada, the dollar is doing a bit better than last year so it makes it a bit more palatable to buy.

I'm hoping they give credit for the 2016 p500s, even if it's only up to a max of one or two. There's a couple of games I'm looking at, but I kinda need a preset limiter on what I buy, as I hate passing up a deal!

I can totally feel their pain with the system upgrade. My department just did the same over the Christmas weekend after a full year gearing up for it. Insanity. Happily, my part went relatively smoothly for this final phase.

Umm...MMP is slick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw MMP hex GMT sales. I guess it's pretty serious.

PLAYING the games I own I find more constructive than PRAYING about games I don't!
