In a "It's only funny when it does not happen to you" new story yesterday we reported that many people who rushed out to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on PC got home to find that disc 2 contained Mass Effect 2. ME2 maker Bioware found out and is making the most of it.
In a burst of what must be seen as good humoured owning Activision and Treyarch up the back doorstep, Bioware has stated that:
"Rumor has it that about a thousand customers who purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops II for PC today were also treated to a surprise copy of Mass Effect 2. If you were one of the affected, chances are you thought it was a mistake, but we prefer to think that it was an omen, and when the universe talks, you should listen.
"If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue? In fact, we want to help! The first fifty fans affected by this phenomenon to send us a picture holding their special disc 2 will receive a code for a FREE PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy."
