Note: Apparently we are not supposed to have any more DNF threads; so this is just a "Thank You" thread to GBX/2k/3DR. Keep it civil, I hope this is okay w/ the mods, if not, please lock.


That said, I preordered this game 10 years ago. You might remember seeing my "patient man" receipt.


As a "Thank You" from Gearbox, they sent me a package which I opened today, here is what was inside:

I must say that my favorite stuff is the signed Duke picture and especially the signed Ball of Steel Edition.

That's amazing. Never thought I'd have a copy of DNF signed by 3DR and Gearbox guys.


==================








Also I gotta post this here:

The Balls of Steel Edition, there were only 136,000 copies of this edition produced world wide.


Gearbox gave me the 10th one produced, the earliest production copy of the game verified:
