+ - GameStop opening Deus Ex copies, stealing codes ->

Submitted by SethThresher
SethThresher (1958152) writes "Square Enix pleasantly surprised everyone by including free download copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution (for the Onlive service) inside retail copies of the game. However, a leaked memo has uncovered that GameStop employees have been instructed to open and remove and throw away each of the coupons they find inside. They claim that Square Enix put the codes there without their knowledge. Gamers claim, however, that what GameStop is doing is underhanded, and probably illegal."

Well Anonymous Coward, I apologize for not seeing your comment before answering a nearly identical one below yours, so let me just copy paste my response to theirs since it merits the same exact response:

I was going for just a general search of "TF2 wiki", my bad for implying the search was for the official one. Look up that one and see what I mean. Look, I'll even give you the url for that very search: http://www.google.com/search?q=tf2+wiki

As for the windows phone remarks, I say with confidence that I don't like either the iOS or Android interfaces, and the Metro interface is a very attractive design alternative to me. The UI is intuitive, and the keyboard works great with my enormous, manly hands. It does exactly what I want it to, with no extra crap and clutter. I waited until the full NoDo update to pick it up, so I didn't even have to "suffer" through the travesty of not having copy+paste. To me, a smartphone is a smartphone, they all do the same basic functions at this point. The only distinctions are the trappings, and my history with the two main schools of thought leave a bad taste in my mouth. Why should I care the masses want me to buy one phone over the other when I know exactly what I want?

In short, I love my phone, so deal with it.

As far as I'm concerned, Bing works just fine on my WP7, is actually just slightly better at getting me relevant results that I've happened to want while I was on the road away from my desktop, and looks marvelous either way. I'm happy with it.

Incidentally, a search for the Team Fortress 2 official wiki on Bing brings you just that as its first result, whereas on Google you get an old, defunct fake version of the real thing, which I suspect stays at the #1 spot due to SEO abuse. Just throwing that out there.
