When we found out that buyers of the Borderlands Game of the Year edition would be getting early access to the Duke Nukem Forever demo, we felt pretty bad for everyone who purchased the game last year on its initial run.
While buyers of boxed copy may still be left out in the cold, if you bought it from Steam, then you're in luck. It turns out that those who bought Borderlands on Steam will also be getting a free early access pass to the Duke Nukem Forever demo whenever it releases.
There's also an interesting angle here for those who are just Duke-crazy. Borderlands is $19.99 on Steam right now, which presents an interesting option for those who just want to play Duke ASAP without enjoying all the greatness that's in Borderlands.
UPDATE: Nevermind that, it seems that only the Game of the Year version gives the early Duke access now for new purchases. Boo.
