Steam may be the most popular digital distribution service for PC gamers, but Direct2Drive is doing everything it can to go head to head with the competition.
First up is their price match guarantee. If any price of a game they offer is available lower, Direct2Drive will price match it by giving you store credit for the difference. All you need to do is fill out a form and you'll be contacted if you qualify.
The bigger promotion though is what D2D is calling the 1-in-5 promotion. It's simple - 20% of the purchases on Direct2Drive from now until December 31st will be given away. You'll know immediately if you win just by adding games to your cart and clicking "purchase" with a credit card. Of course the question now is - do you split your orders up into separate items to try to increase your chances, or do you lump them together to try to get more of a discount.
