It was a gaffe that they are trying to turn into a gesture of goodwill. None of my friends even knew about this buy and play deal.

What happened is, that in the rush to quickly get the free pack out the door to impatient LE/Season Pass holders, they accidentally made it so that anyone who redeemed a priority alpha specialization also got it free.

Apparently, the alpha specialization code is the same as the limited edition people code internally.

Lol at all the butthurt filling up the board today.

"You will be banned!"

"You will be charged the ms points!"

v

"Uhh okay, then at least you will lose access to the maps by the end of today!"

Does this mean the people who got it free only have access through the 18th? Its obviously a lame cover up from a technical problem but the way I read it it looks like they might take it away after a week.

I love the people who think this will actually hurt Microsoft.

They survived Vista, this isn't even a hiccup to them.

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

This still screws the value of their season pass though.
