    Much appreciated XacTactX!

    Does anyone think there is a possibility of your steam account being banned for using this key?

    You people sadden me. You have a "few" keys that you got for nothing, and already you're trying to "trade" them for games? Seriously? Especially given that certain people have given away what, 50, 60 keys already, free?

    Not to be flamey or anything, but if you're just looking to profit, Ebay, or Craigslist, or other classifieds site.

    I've been wondering about this as well.

    I don't think they'll ban your account. Probably lock it until the key is removed or something, if the keys do get deactivated.

    Are you saying not asking for something in return for a trade is a necessary condition for when someone gives away the same item for free?

    I dont think so, it's their error. Worst case scenario (in my mind) would be them invalidating your key.

    Well, depends on your definition of "wrong" from a moral or technical standpoint. I'm hesitant to call it immoral, so I'll just say I find it distasteful for people to attempt to make a free buck at the expense of [H] Members. I mean, if we all were trying to get the absolute best price, we wouldn't try to sell our stuff here, at least, I wouldn't. I'd turn to Ebay or Craigslist or some sort of classified service, since it gets more eyeballs.

    I think it's fine for people to ask for something in exchange. I just don't agree with the practice, that's all.

    Wouldn't an invalidation of key also mean a retraction of payment, thus, locked account?

    What did I learn from this? "Free" is a very, very enticing word. I have three left, and would like to keep them for my cousin and a friend. Whoever got a key, enjoy the game or the profit earned through its sale/barter, and whoever did not, eBay has I imagine thousands for $5.

    If anyone would like to show appreciation through a donation or a gift, no matter how large or small, it would be appreciated. My paypal is at maritabay@yahoo.com PM me for my address if you are so inclined.

    Good day to you all.

    For anyone who missed out, people are selling keys on ebay for as little as $2.50.

    Well, my friend got a download manager link, but no key. Does the key come afterwards? He's downloading the installer file or something now.

    Just remember that that somebody out there today probably lost their job.

    Given that it was an nvidia error I don't think anything will happen with steam

    I am guessing the keys cost nvidia about $1 piece so I don't think anyone got fired. Probably just talked to. Nvidia kept their CEO when he screwed up Fermi's communication between departments and caused a late release. He probably caused a minimum of a couple million loss in revenue by showing up empty handed against the new AMD GPU generation for six months.

    I'm glad you're doing your share. :)

    Probably nobody. You don't go around firing your top engineers just because they screwed up. Good engineering is somewhat different from mistyping a number into an inventory system.

    I highly doubt it too. I mean they can't shut down my steam account which I have many games because of their fault?

    I've made mistakes in life.

    I've also paid for *every* one of them.

    I have no sympathy, it's just a tough break for them.

    I don't feel bad for NVidia. They can certainly afford to toss $100,000 down the drain, no problem. I don't think anyone ought to lose their job because of it.

    Same, went to resume my dl, and it wouldn't go. Went to the product page and it didn't say I owned the game, like it would for something you already own, and it wasn't in my games list.

    LMAO. No one has to send me anything, you can't appreciate something you didn't get. Well, those are three hours of my life I'll never get back :p.

    I tried to register the remaining codes I had left, all three said duplicate product code has already been activated. Well, that sucked.

    Ouch. Painful. :/

    I wonder if the people with the download manager version are suffering the same fate?

    I wouldn't doubt it, since the game requires Steam in order to run anyway.
