#4 Edited by kerse (2114 posts) -

#5 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Anybody think they'll actually honor this?

#6 Edited by believer258 (11949 posts) -

Oh God, I hope I can get an account made and everything before it's no longer a penny. They are so slow right now

EDIT: Woohoo! I got it! EDIT: By "got it", I mean that I processed the order. It said that it would take about half an hour or so to get a key.

Won't work in Canada, unfortunately. Apparently they're Steam keys and people have received some.

#8 Edited by RedRoach (1192 posts) -

You might as well pirate it.

Hit me up via PM.

People are now getting their orders cancelled, so seems like things have been fixed.

Never mind, it might be happening for some but I don't think it's fixed yet.

#12 Posted by allgrinzz (161 posts) -

Order is in process, we'll see..

#13 Posted by StarFoxA (5158 posts) -

@fluxwavez: I just put one in, it's still processing. Fingers crossed!

I'm in for a quite a few, if they go through I'll gift them to some and maybe even trade one or two on Steam...

Yeah, I'm that guy that takes advantage of shit like this.

Someone should just spend $1 and have a massive giveaway lol

#18 Edited by jiggajoe14 (696 posts) -

It works. I entered the best buy code on nvidia's website to get the steam code.

#19 Posted by Akyho (1658 posts) -

Dudes. if you used your best buy card you can get 5% as a reward!

#20 Posted by Kaiserreich (705 posts) -

Waiting on that e-mail

I will do, thanks for the authorisation!

I already have the first Metro, so I'll give that copy away if I get a free code for it with Last Light.

#23 Edited by Karmum (11519 posts) -

@lego_my_eggo:

I'm seriously considering it. My first one was canceled for some reason, apparently due to "verifying my information"

Ok, try my credit card then. I'm going out guns blazing. Deny my debit card? K.

#24 Edited by ottoman673 (521 posts) -

Maybe it's Best Buy's tribute to Ryan Davis and his hatred for pennies, proving that they are indeed good for something.

Edit: It actually appears to be a giveaway game with the purchase of a GTX 660, and isn't a page that we should be seeing. Regardless, their mistake = cheap games!

#25 Edited by Karmum (11519 posts) -

@ottoman673:

Well, they were also good for recently hiring me. This totally looks good for me.

#26 Posted by AnotherSomebody (154 posts) -

Sucks being Canadian sometimes.

#27 Posted by Breadfan (6590 posts) -

I'll pay a penny for a game I probably won't ever play.

#28 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

I've placed nine orders and three have been canceled so far. Might be cracking down on the amount I've placed or they've finally caught the omission.

#29 Posted by Damax (68 posts) -

Even though its digital it won't work in Canada, this sucks haha. Good deal for those who can get it though.

#30 Posted by SlashDance (1818 posts) -

Is the developer getting screwed with this or just Best Buy? If it's just Best Buy that's fine I guess but this game deserves more than a penny.

#31 Posted by StarFoxA (5158 posts) -

Confirmed: Just got a code. Looks like it's supposed to be free if you buy certain Nvidia cards, but they screwed up somehow.

#32 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

My card has been charged for them so far but no email. I am not sure if they can take back the order once they take my money...

#33 Edited by StarFoxA (5158 posts) -

Also, double check your spam folder, duders. That's where my code for the Nvidia site was (then Nvidia emails you the Steam code).

In this instance where it's a promotional free game that's [supposed to be] with the purchase of a video card, Deep Silver already got their money when nVidia paid them for the promotional packin, etc.

#36 Posted by CornBREDX (5383 posts) -

wow that's amazing. Thanks for the heads up!

I don't have to wait for a steam sale then I guess.

#37 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (424 posts) -

My order got cancelled. I expected as much, but can't help but be slightly disappointed that I didn't a chance to fuck over Best Buy.

#38 Posted by TruthTellah (9153 posts) -

I got the code, and got the steam key. The game is downloading now.

Very nice of them to run this little promotion. Give away a few copies and remind people about the game. Hope it means they'll sell even more. :)

#39 Posted by Breadfan (6590 posts) -

Still waiting on a key. Hopefully I get one. I had no interest in actually playing this game, but now I do.

#40 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

I just bought it in the UK, apparently I live at a Delaware brewery. ;)

I read his post as Best Buy being good for something, but it was meant to be for the pennies.

It could make sense, unless everyone loves Best Buy!

#44 Posted by TruthTellah (9153 posts) -

Looks like Best Buy was only sending out codes for 5-10 minutes. I got in right away, but most people just have confirmed orders and no code. Nothing to see here anymore.

How do you get it internationally? Won't accept paypal or credit card with international address

#46 Posted by ShaggE (6478 posts) -

@karmum: Awwww, I was hoping pennies had gained sentience and decided they needed employees... :(

#47 Posted by Malarkain (105 posts) -

So now that I have this...should I have played metro 2033 first or does it just not matter?

But we get maple syrup and a free stag to ride when we turn 16.
