It's a free (upcoming!) feature in a free software they include in their drivers for your convenience.
Release dates for software are theirs to set and/or change and/or postpone, it's not like you paid a lot of money for a pre-order, so stop acting like Nvidia has greatly wronged you. Never did it say on the box that your GPU would come with Shadowplay. At most, it said it would come with GE, of which Shadowplay is an upcoming feature. That got delayed.
I get it, it's unfortunate, but that's the reality of trying to push out software sometimes. I'm 100% sure you wouldn't want to have the software in it's current state, since Nvidia obviously don't deem it ready for release yet.
Please, just take a breather for a second, and think about how silly these demands you are making really are.
Demands are not silly. Even Nvidia rep officialy gave me the response above telling me that they had a piss poor job on communication.
It doesn't matter if the feature is free. A free feature can be critisized as well. Here most of us are critisizing the lack of communication and action from Nvidia about Shadowplay, and ManuelG from Nvidia admitted that they handled it wrongly.
Nvidia admits it, their main rep in the official forums told me directly how they handled some stuff poorly about 2 hours ago and you still say its a silly demand?
Also please do not forget that some people just bought a Kepler GPU over their preferred ATI GPU just because they believed Shadowplay would have released in June 25th.
