How would 2 copies of a game be any consolation to those affected? Choice of any one game mabye, but 2 of a game chances are they already have just to be forced to gift them away doesn't do anything for them.

This happened a month or two ago and we had a thread about it then when an ATer was banned because of it.

There is one good thing about this there will be more Left 4 Dead 2 players :)

Obviously that was the intent. Why else give each of them 2 copies? Hence the reason why some in the industry didn't like the idea of Valve controlling Steam for distribution. It just happened to be the most popular non-Valve game that was affected, and the most recent Valve game that was given away.

Or it was an accident.

Eh the fact that you got something for a mistake that was corrected is great in of itself. Usually you get a "sorry" if that...

The bonus of having 1 or 2 copies of a game to either trade of play is a nice touch.
