Gamestop is apparently scrambling to cover their tracks after the whole fiasco with them taking out OnLive codes for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. They are now offering a $50 gift card and a buy two get one free pre-owned offer for those that purchased the PC version of the game at their stores.
This sudden decision came in the form of an e-mail sent out to customers that purchased the game. All you pissed off consumers need to do is bring that e-mail in and your receipt/order confirmation form and you can get your free stuff.
Of course, whether this will actually save them from the scorn of the masses, media, and industry, as well as a potential court case, remains to be seen. But, at least they’re trying, right?
The e-mail reads as so:
"Dear GameStop customer,
Earlier this week, GameStop removed a competitor's coupon from standard edition PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a recent release by Square Enix. We were not aware that the product box would contain this competitor's offer. We regret the events surrounding this title release and that our customers were put in the middle of this issue between GameStop and Square Enix, the publisher of this game. And for this, we are truly sorry.
For your inconvenience, we would like to offer you a free $50 GameStop gift card and a Buy 2 Get 1 Free pre-owned purchase. We want to earn back your trust and confidence in the GameStop experience. Please bring in this email and your store receipt or order confirmation from GameStop.com and present it to a Game Advisor.
