I ordered GTA from Gameplay.co.uk, and got an email from Game.co.uk saying :

Dear Customer,

I wasn't expecting anything extra - have they sent this out by mistake, or are the two companies related ??

I can't find anything on the subject so I'd assume gameplay ordered the game for you from GAME

It was a joke between two users to convince everyone that one had given away his 12 month code for 'testing'

Hilarious.

IIRC GAME own Gameplay as well (the other being Gamestation).
