On Saturday, EA began giving gamers a special promo code if they completed a survey. The promo code was supposed to be good for one free download from the Origin digital download store.
However, as gamers quickly discovered, the code was not secured properly, and was good for as many games as your bandwidth could handle, for free.
Additionally, the code worked for Canadian Origin account holders, as well, and it didn't matter if you ever took the survey or not.
The code was out there for at least a few hours, prompting users to download all they could during the loophole period. One Redditer posted a screenshot of the 90GB worth of games he was able to download and boost his collection.
