Nvidia E-mail?

Hello,

Recently, NVIDIA participated in a promotion that gave our customers access to a free digital download of the game "Metro 2033" when they pre-ordered
THQ's soon to be released game "Homefront".

Unfortunately, our online systems allowed access to the free download without pre-ordering "Homefront". Instructions and links to work around the
promotion were posted online, and before we realized the issue and closed the loophole, some customers were able to download and install "Metro 2033"
without the required pre-order. After closing the loophole, customers who had downloaded the game were no longer able to play it.

We realize that this resulted in a poor experience for some customers and we sincerely apologize for the confusion.

In response to this situation, we would like to re-extend our original offer, along with an additional discount for those who were inconvenienced.
For a limited time, we will give an additional 10% off your total purchase of "Homefront" (which includes the free download of "Metro 2033"), or
anything else in our store. Simply use the coupon code below when checking out. This is a single-use code and expires February 25, 2011 at 2am
CST/Midnight PST.

Homefront + Metro 2033: http://store.nvidia.com/promo/86464300

10% Off Coupon Code - xxxx#xx#x

Thanks and best regards,

The NVIDIA Team
I didnt participate in any "free" download of Metro 2033, involving Homefront that is

Any1 else get this?

Just got it, and to be honest I give props for NV for doing this, even if it is only $5. People abused a loophole and NV said ya you did it, but heres 10% off. I was shocked when I read the e-mail, props to them.

Funny, I seem to remember people installing it and having it removed from their steam account. Maybe Nvidia should be more careful with their store in the first place. On another note Nvidia is the only time I have ever heard of the transactions being completed and then the store deactivating the keys.

Note this is just my point of view, not taking sides here because it Nvidia, I have owned their cards too
