It's all about public relations. As someone else pointed out, Make the consumer happy today and they will buy from you in the future. It's moves like these that will get some of the more jaded gamers back into good graces. An extremely well thought marketing strategy, really.

Sec B) If the company wishes to trade these prizes in for cold hard cash, that would be alright.

Sec C) Sec B is non negotiable.

Sec D) If in the months after the bad ass has been done, the company does not collect their prize, they must release moar free things.
