Oh hai, the key you have used has been accepted. You can now start downloading the game and using all of your months bandwith.

Download game during the night.

Oh hi, we Nvidia made some green magic and made your game disappear. You mad ?

i dont think anyone here is stupid enough to sue nvidia over this. I am sure though, that people here are smart enough to not use nvidia store anymore. if you figure 100 people got the game for free here on overclock.net. I usually buy 2-3 games a year from nvidia when they have sales. lets just say the 100 people did too. thats $15K a year from us 100 people. Because of what nvidia did, im betting atleast 3/4 of the 100 would stop buying from nvidia. Thats a loss of $11.5K, compared to the loss of $5k they would have had if they let the people keep the game. Will i recommend nvidia to any of my friends/family/customers, not a one.

saw that after i posted...shows nvidia is a douche-bag company already...meaning this isnt the first time they screwed over people on a massive scale. dam i know horrible huge companies that still have c ratings. thats usually how they keep a somewhat decent raiting. dont care about people unless they make a complaint, then they fix it. nvidia says, "screw em, there sheep, they will still buy are crap"

Seriously you have to ask why people are getting upset over this?

You entice people with a free copy of a fairly high profile game, and then take it away from them with no notice at all and youre going to get people angry, especially during a crumby economy like this.

Just because someone accidentally left a door unlocked doesn't mean you're allowed to go in the door and take the stuff behind it. Even though you technically did pay something, you weren't supposed to have access to the item, making it theft in the first place.
I know I've already responded to this, but I thought about it some more, in particular your comment about theft. I'll quote my earlier response as it builds upon that

Kristian's right, but I disagree with that being what happened. It is a good analogy, but I personally interpret it as incorrect.
This is why:
In a bricks and mortar store, going into a private access area would be an initial impossibility (common mistake - see my earlier post) because it was sitting in a private room, not to be sold.
But what's happened here with NVidia is that they've accidentally taken all those metaphoric TV's from the stock room and put them on the shelves. Why do I think that? Because it's on the world wide web - they put it in a publicly accessible room. And yes, they made a mistake, but it's their own fault - as I mentioned earlier a contract can only be terminated if it's an impossibility where fault lies on neither party. They did it, and allowed the contract to be formed.
If, however, it was in a password protected area, and somebody left the password blank which allowed everyone to access it (the same as leaving the door open in your analogy), there's still an expectation of privacy and that the products were never meant to be sold. But as I said, they took it out of a private area and put it on the show room floor - even if it's in the back corner where nobody ever visits, it's still part of everything that's on display to the customer, and thus valid.
So in that response, I concluded that by putting the page on a publicly accessible web page, rather than a secure intranet, they are effectively putting the product on their shelves for sale. This conclusion allows my earlier analogy of buying a TV to remain true.

Now, building upon that, Nvidia accepted the offer of personal details and a payment to the value of $0 in exchange for the serial key and download service. They delivered the goods to the customer, meaning they've already gone past the stage at which they reserve the right to cancel or change the terms.

That serial becomes the property of the customer. What Nvidia has done is sold the goods to the customer and then taken it back from them. So who here actually committed the "theft" as you put it? The consumer who made an offer which was accepted by Nvidia, or Nvidia who took the key back without even having the courtesy to knock first?
Again, bricks and mortar example: you go into a game store, walk up to the counter with a hard copy of Metro 2033 and offer to pay $0 for it. For whatever reason, the employee at the counter accepts your offer and you take it home. That night, the employee goes to your house, takes the game back and then sends you a letter a few days later saying "Sorry, we screwed up". Again, who actually committed the theft here?

They wouldn't miss 11.5k. But what they would miss less is having customers who would really expect to get something for nothing. Nor would they miss dumping customers who are unreasonable.

3/4 people wouldn't buy from nVidea because of this?? People wouldn't buy from nVidea because of friends recommendations? No way.

How many people even know who the publisher of a game is? When a good game comes out who cares about whether or not nVidea didn't give selfish people something for free based on an obvious mistake.

After doing some snooping around, I found this. So technically, they are in the wrong for doing something not specifically stated in their TOS. However, I don't know how this works for digital downloads. And I couldn't read the EULA for the downloader/Metro 2033, so that doesn't hold a lot of water.

Just thought I'd give you something to argue about.
