Why isn't Mafia 1 on sale anymore?
Hi, a few months back I was creating a list of the games I want and can buy from steam, between them was the first volume of the game Mafia. But when I search the store now it dosen't apear anymore... only Mafia II (2). I dont understand why it isn't on sale anymore...

It'd be something to contact the publishers and/or developers about, I'm afraid.
I agree with FrazerJC, you would have to ask on their forums as to why its been removed or try looking on the specific Game Hub for it.
Mafia's been pulled from other distributors too, like Green Man Gaming and Gamers Gate. I wonder if they pulled it off the market completely? That would suck; I should have bought it when I had the chance.

It could be like Stubbs the Zombie, which got pulled because it had problems running in newer PC conditions, meaning it would cause a lot of problems during sale times if it didn't work properly with modern PC's.

I'm pretty sure you can still buy a Steam redeemable code for Mafia 1 from Amazon Digital.

Yes, it works, what gives you the impression that it doesn't?

Additionally, Amazon Digital sales are only for the USA, but you can easily get around that restriction in terms of billing address.

It wouldn't shock me if it were still on there from before and no one sent Amazon the memo. Then again, I don't know how Steam works in regards to keys for games that are no longer in their catalog.

Hence why I asked. Stranger things have happened.

The amazon thing is fine, I noticed this, and then found this, purchased it on amazon, and it activates like a charm, no need to worry about it
