He's fine. He used to play and visit these forums. I think he sold Starhawk at some point in the past but never deleted the data from his HDD. He recently bought the game again and is giving away the codes.
You are correct. When I sold it that day, I did said that I will pick it up again before the end of the year. Keep in mind that this is a pre-owned used copy because sometimes the codes are never used.
