'Gears of War 4' News: Nvidia To Revoke Digital Codes for Gears of War Freebies at Amazon
Nvidia seemed to have found out that the freebies they've been giving on Amazon in relation with the Gears of War release. However, the promotion became out of hand because of an exploit in Amazon's digital delivery system. As a result, Nvidia announced that it would be revoking its digital codes for the said game.
In order to utilize the popularity of Gears of War 4, the semiconductor company has offered the game for free if they purchased their GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 Graphics Processing Units, which they consider as their flagship GPU. When consumers purchase either of these GPUs, they will be given a free Gears of War 4 redeem code which they can use in Nvidia's website.
Amazon's digital delivery system is used as part of the site's delayed release solution; however, a glitch in the system delivered the free codes instantly to the consumers. When news about the keys being sold became viral, a lot of users posted warnings to be careful about buying cheap digital codes which became widespread on eBay and other gaming forums. According to the warnings, the codes can be bought for as low as $10.
Amazon has already stopped issuing the codes but Nvidia also made their own announcement saying that there has been illegal activity detected on the release of the Gears of War Windows 10 keys.
"If you believe your key was incorrectly revoked, we highly recommend you contact NVIDIA support with proof of purchase to help out with this," the announcement further advised its customers.
After Nvidia released the announcement, there are questions what would Nvidia do to customers who got their GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 as a gift or really bought the code through legal means. So far, Nvidia hasn't adressed this issue yet but costumers are expecting that the company will make further clarifications soon.
Gears of War 4 is set for release on October 11 for $59.99 but they can get copies earlier for $99.99. Gears of War 4 is available on both XBox One and PlayStation 4.
