Awesome, now I have two golden keys. Guess I can use one now and then save the other for when I beat the game.

#102 Posted by golguin (3842 posts) -

Got it. Now I can redeem another in the next few levels.

Jesus the 360 ones were gone quick.

#106 Edited by Chtasm (445 posts) -

The 360 code seemed to fail, but I kept hitting enter and it popped up two Golden Keys for moi. @laserbolts

edit: and it never actually said it succeeded in going through

These don't have a limit on the number used, just a 2 hour window to use them.

Couldn't login for a while on PS3, finally did it and now I have 11 keys to play with.

No more golden keys?

Don't worry dude, more to come -and if you ask me, Golden Keys are the least interesting thing that is possible with SHIFT code redemptions. Combine SHIFT with the fact that every item in Borderlands 2 has a "serial number" of sorts that allows it to be replicated - and distributed - and that makes for some very interesting possibilities coming out of Gearbox as we look forward to the Mechromancer and DLC.

So, not only can they grant keys, but I'm positive that they can give items as well. The possibilites could be limitless.

Never thought about it but yeah, that could be really interesting if they start doing codes for items in game. From what Pitchford has been saying about SHIFT on twitter and how they're just testing the waters with the service, I could totally see something like that now that you bring it up.

That's good because I've only used one golden key (currently have 5) at level 28 and I got a crappy shotgun that shoots a blob of slag that's simply an upgraded version of the same eridium shotgun I found at level 21, but I did get an amazing SMG that shoots balls of lightning that I still use at level 32 and it's my most damaging weapon I have.

Thanks, got mine!

#115 Posted by DarknessMyOldFriend (203 posts) -

There should really be a way to activate these through your shift page without needing to be on your system. Who the hell is at home in the middle of the day? People with jobs like to get bonus content too.

People with jobs can afford more games...

How does this effect the codes and keys? Also I have a job and can not afford ALL the games that come out. So stop making mass assumptions.

Missed 'em by 15 minutes. Fuck.

#120 Posted by mosespippy (4031 posts) -

I missed the most recent code. As I was about to enter the code when someone joined my game and offered me a better version of The Bee than what I had and a Critical Conference Call so we did an exchange and farmed Terra for a bit. By the time we finished the code had expired.

Where did I say you can afford ALL the games? I just said more. You are also making assumptions that the people claiming the DLC before you do, do not have jobs. I'd take a job over sitting all day on my ass waiting for a DLC code, if that makes you feel any better.

#123 Posted by Capum15 (4807 posts) -

I managed to get this last one, after missing a few. Got some okay guns, though I'm still saving the rest I have.

Ok, let's walk through this from the beginning. The codes went from being count limited to time limited. Now there's an unlimited number of activations per code as long as it's within a specified time period. Those time periods have been very inconvenient for those of us who are not at home in the middle of the day. If we could activate those codes over the Shift service itself it would be both more convenient for us and a more effective way of driving use and awareness of the Shift service.
 
I, someone who very much enjoys Borderlands and have purchased all available Borderlands 2 content, would very much like to have the same access to the golden keys that anyone else with the same interest level in the Borderlands franchise has.
 
The fact that I could go buy another game instead of playing Borderlands does nothing to help me play more borderlands.
 
Thank you though for filtering my post through your consciousness so that my little remark about wanting equal access to a virtual key in a game to access a virtual item that is a fun little bonus became instead an attack on the unemployed. I didn't realize that admitting to having a job on the internet made me a de facto member of the 1%. Having been thus informed I will go find a peasant to wipe my €1800 bespoke quarter-brogued cap toe oxfords upon. They were made by hand in Spain, a country you probably have never heard of, considering your no doubt public school education.

My public school education? Hay una panaderia por aqui? Look, I don't understand how I offended you and I apologize.

Calm down, boss. These are primarily tests for Gearbox themselves. The fact that we get something out of it is not really the issue in this instance. This post will now follow a branching path...

[ * If you're in the USA... The code test that was posted during your work day was actually specifically targeted at we European users' "Prime Time". ]

[* If you're in Europe... The code tests that have been posted during your work day and in the middle of the night have been targeted at a convenient time for users in the USA. ]

But, yes, the ability to redeem codes via your PC would be handy.

Your statement still makes no sense what so ever.
#128 Posted by morrelloman (606 posts) -

Some of these times has been convinient for me, so I've been able to get most of them. Got 2 keys when I pre-ordered and signed up for shift, up to 11 keys now. Think I should use at least one when I hit lvl 20.

Check out my thread on golden key use results at Level 50...if I had it to do all over again, I would have used a key every 5 levels all the way up through the leveling process. Once you hit 50, there are purple and eridium weapons dropping literally everywhere...I saved all of my keys until 50, used all six or seven at once and ended up with nothing but vendor trash. I just finally got something useful yesterday, an E-Tech Sniper Rifle.

I'm pleading with all of my friends not to save their keys until 50. It seems like the opposite of what is intended.

#138 Posted by golguin (3842 posts) -

Got it. I now currently have 7 keys and I've used one about 10 levels ago. I think I'll use another key once I hit level 40.
