Steam code from nvidia promotion on amazon, counts as pre-order or no?
So I received the promotional code this morning a few hours after my order of a gtx 770 has shipped, went on over to the geforce website to redeem it and got the steam code and applied it to my account. As the discussion title states, I'm curious to know if it counts as a preorder and qualifies me for the Deathstroke skin/dlc bonus?

I'm almost positive on a 'yes' because the game isn't out yet and when you buy the game on Steam you get the bonuses. So since you got the code and applied it before release it would make sense. I'd double check on Amazon though.

i should be getting a promo code as well, do you guys know if i can gift it thru activation? or do i have to send the actual code to receiver?

Sometimes they give you a pre order. My buddy usually gets a hundred keys for giving out to people with issues with their cards etc. I have gotten like 10 games likes this and its hit or miss.

You'll need to send the actual code to the reciever, yes :)

I have activated my NVIDIA promotion code on my account as well and it says "Batman Arkham Origins Retail" on my Steam Account so there is no info about pre-order or pre-purchase thing and because of this we won't get pre-purchase DLC I think. I hope they will release (sell it) it as a DLC in future.

Got it as well and Splinter Cell. But Splinter Cell has to be downloaded through Uplay... what a rip-off system is Uplay. 30 days to download a game and after that you can't anymore... lame as duck...

I got the same thing from ordering a EVGA GeForce GTX780 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX. I hope it counts as a pre order, that would be sweeeeeeet.

I'm guessing you will not get the preorder dlc given it just redeems as a retail key. You would need to have a second code to redeem the preorder bonus dlc. Steam preorders bonuses do not carry over to retail keys. Hopefully they offer it for purchase later.

Also on the note of uplay, if you redeem the key into the uplay service you can download as often as you want as long as you want. The 30 day thing is because they use digital river as their store front and when your download comes from digital river they have a 30 day window for good to be downloaded. In the case of Ubi/uplay you just add it to your account and can download it whenever.

There's nothing wrong with uPlay. I guess you, as many others, compare it vs Steam. Uplay and origin is nothing like Steam so when people often call uplay and origin lame I just don't get it... Uplay is a service for Ubisoft games. And origin is a service for EA games. And there's nothing wrong with them imo. And if you somehow didnt manage to download your game, dlc or whatever, you can just contact their support and they will open it up for you again. Simple as that.

Anyone willing to donate a code? lol :p
Mr Snifflez Sep 19, 2013 @ 8:12pm 
lol i might be willing to trade the one i got and you will recieve a discount, but theres no way to activiate it as a gift so it wouldnt be in my inventory and i doubt many people are that trusting. you enter the code at the nvidia website and get your cd key.

in the past it varies by game but when Borderlands 2 was given away with graphic cards it did NOT get the preorder bonuses

Lol, I was just joking (sort've), but if do you have an extra copy and willing to donate it for science, I wouldn't mind lol!
