Starving college student here. Dying to play the game, but low on funds. Anyone know where a super cheap place to buy it is?

amazon or steam, or maybe ebay! but buy combined operatios! its better to have the complete package. and there are also 2 DLC's worth buying.

just eat vegetables for 2 weeks and you have saved enough. it is worth it! and healthy too :)

tuna additionally is filling as well! try it. its frickin' awesome ;)

@emeraldelbow: no idea where you are situated but I'm guessing US so, a 5-min check reveals that Combined Operations (Arma2+Operation Arrowhead):
Sprocket (BI's own online store): €25 ($33)
Amazon US: $33
Otherwise try GetGames, Steam, Froogle, FleaBay and all the usual suspects.
Eating more veg is always good (health, budget & environment).

I'd wait for the Sprocket deals to arrive. Normally they do -50% at various times around the year.

If you're a starving college student I assume you would have a relatively shitty computer then? (or was all your food money spend on electronics)

If spec'd properly, Arma2 will run quite well on what passes for a relatively shitty computer these days.

Indeed it seems that you can now grab Combined Operations (A2+OA) for only $15 from Amazon's Digital Services
Unless you're buying direct from the farmer, I'd fast for a few days ;)

So over a month ago I found out about Day-Z but I never ended up buying Arma 2: CO as I didn't want to spend $30. I now really want to play it again and am mad at myself for not buying it on Amazon for $15 when it was on sale the other day... So what I'm asking is does anyone know where I can find Arma II: CO for preferably $15 or below? I really want to play Arma 2/Day-z! :eek:

Hi all :),
I want to buy ARMA X- Anniversary Edition but a Box Pack (collection of DVDs) as I won't be able to afford to download 20+gigs (as I am in India; internet bandwidth here is damn expensive :x ).

so, I am unable to find the best deal.. the one on Bohemia's online store looked as if it is an online download purchase. (which probably it is for sure).
I have also posted 2 emails regarding the same to Bohemia's support also (just to be sure). I would really like to buy the game (after enjoying countless hours on Arma 2: Free. Can somebody please guide me to a link from where I can do the same? I came across this here and this one too but as both of these differ by their "Region" dependent distribution copies so I am unsure which to buy. (I am wondering if I get the "Asia" version then all the good HD stuff would be blocked/stripped out :'( ) Please suggest :)

Also I want to support the devs for providing us with this wonderful game (no doubt I am going to buy ARMA: III also.. infact I am right now looking to pre-order it :D if you guys have come across any legit website doing so then pls tell me now I want to get it before I actually order the ARMA X: Anniversary edition and run out of all greens $$$ :D )

Thanks & Regards,
sky770

I moved your post here as there are numerous existing threads about where to buy.

What about Zest in Thailand? https://www.zest.co..../view/id/10964/

Hi,
wow..thanks for moving my post here :)
regarding Zest.. I guess its a digital download as the discs section in the product description is just having a " - " dash* ? i.e none?
Anyways I have fired n email to their customer support lets see how they respond. Is this merchant legit? O_o

Thanks & Regards,

Hi,
I tried registering an account with ZEST but was unable to login.. the system said wrong password? but i had entered it correct!
I tried resetting my password, tried with it.. but then again wrong password! :/ I guess they don't like/want international customers. I tried creating 2 separate accounts but to no avail :(. Anyone please any alternative to ZEST but with similar price range? (only box pack versions) ?

Yes Zest are legitimate and as far as I'm aware are happy with international customers, I have contacted them in the past and they've responded to my email so maybe just wait a little longer, as far as I could see from the advert that was the boxed version (well I assumed it was!) we shall keep looking ;)
