Sweet deal but is this $40 in Canada as well or just in the US?, If its coming to Canada will it be higher due to the difference between US and Canadian GDP? If its the same I'm definitely getting it.

@TheBionicRock Steam's actually pretty mod friendly. I know all the mods for Fallout 3 worked fine on my Steam copy.

the more awesome deal on steam the better, maybe one day eb games will stop charging stupid prices. oblivion goty edition on sales is still more than steam without the dlc. I buy pretty much every game on steam now as it is so much better than the neglected eb games pc retail. if games on demand on x360 takes off and eb games does the same as it has with pc games in a few year, they could be in trouble.

I read that there was going to be a deluxe GoTY edition on steam with all DLC. be cool if that would come to consoles. I refuse to pay for *shivers* horse armor.

Game of the Year editions of Morrowind and Oblivion for $25? That's insane. An insanely good deal that is.

Oh, I thought they were offering both ES games at a great price for a physical copy... I might have to buy another copy of each just because it is cheaper than the DLC price... but alas, it's just a steam 'copy'.

Are these also available for the PS3?Both games were separately.Morrowind wasn't(as i recall)avavilable for the PS2.

I bought the deluxe pack from Steam right away, damn what a deal ! 22€, with all the DLC and shivering isles ! Thanks Bethesda !

This is one of the few deals I would actually go for if I didn't already own both of these games, although I completely agree with Wula that no one should be expected to pay store prices for a digital download copy of a game with no disc, no manual, no packaging and none of the overhead included in the store price. If I have to pay $49.99 for a game, I'm at least getting a disc and a box with some fancy cover art. And a manual to use as a coaster for my coffee cup. :)

The real question is how well the steam version of Oblivion will get along with the mods that make the PC version so superior to begin with.

Even though I think digital downloads are a complete ripoff since your paying the same price but you get nothing else that you would when buying it IRL (no manual, box art, etc.). But for once I gotta say this is a pretty good friggin deal if you prefer buying legit games for cheap over the net. To bad I already got everything they put on sale :/

as good of a deal as this is, it doesnt make me regret buying these games for 60 dollars each.

If anyone hasn't played these games yet (I have no idea why, or even HOW one could not), this is the time to get 'em.

A GameStop employee told me about this about 2 months ago. I've been waiting for it ever since.

40 bucks for 2 great titles? What's not to like about this. Does the bundled games come with the shivering isles?

i was gonna buy bioshock this summer but now seeing it bundled up wit a major hit game like oblivion im sold

omg Morrowind sucked! I don't understand how people enjoyed that game more than Oblivion. The combat system was a disaster, which ruined the gameplay for me. I understand you're not supposed to be strong at the beginning, but at least let me feel like im actually hitting the damn thing!

Other than the graphics factor and more realistic enemies I enjoyed Morrowind more than Oblivion.

Depending on how much Bioshock will be for Games on Demand (I'm expecting $20), I'll probably skip this. Seems like a good deal but I just couldn't get into Oblivion.

Bioshock's a rental, but since it's being bundled with Oblvion, then i guess it's worth the purchase.

Two Great games for a good price ($40) that's a solid deal. only for the ppl that haven't purchased and played either game. Come to think of it Best buy has the same two-for-one game bundle in the form of both rainbow six vegas and Ghost Recon
