Second Life Amazon offer & arrival in UK and Germany

The Lab is making a further offer to US residents this weekend, with a three of the Amazon Second Life packs on special promotion until Sunday September 8th.

The three packs in the offer are:

  • The Premium Vehicle Pack –  which includes L$4000, thee hoverboard, premium sailing boat and dune buggy – is now 30% off at $17.49
  • The Hoverboard Bonus Pack – is now 60% off and $5.19
  • The Troobles Pet Pack – is now 60% off at $3.95.

I’ve commented before on why I feel that these packs are potentially a missed opportunity, and the promotional offer would perhaps suggest the packs aren’t proving particularly popular.

Perhaps of greater interest, although only warranted a passing one-liner in the blog post, is the fact that the SL viewer and the above packs, together with the “deluxe” vehicle packs,  are now available through Amazon in the UK and Germany.

While the current offer does not extend to either country, likely as a result of local management boundaries, etc., within Amazon itself, rather than anything on LL’s part to limit things, the announcement that SL is now available through Amazon in the UK and Germany does carry the promise that future promotions may well include both countries.

One thought on “Second Life Amazon offer & arrival in UK and Germany

  1. I very much like the goal that seems to be obvious here: make SL content aka virtual goods available on Amazon BUT it would be so much better to start off with the ABSOLUTE TOP content such as [and I am merely throwing stuff on the page I can think of now – disclaimer: there may be even BETTER stuff out there]: Cyber stuff from Ono Zinner [Neurolab Inc], Dwarfins, Gizza Creations what not….but anyway: I do hope the endgame is to make EVERYTHING purchasable on amazon [if folks wish to connect their accounts which – reminding the paranoids – will BE OPTIONAL I am sure]
