Hey guys, i'm looking to buy some games off eBay and one witch has caught my eye was Damnation

But it says it's a promotional copy? but is the complete game, i'm not too sure about it, and was wondering what a promotional copy is?

Im sure its just a copy given out to certain people early, like game reviewers.
I got a promo copy of something once and it was fine :)
Oh I forgot my copy didnt have instructions, so maybe that aswell.

I had promotional copies of the darkness, motorstorm and resistance for ps3. All came in a paper case without instruction manual, but all were totally playable. And they were around half the retail price...if you ignore the 1000 "Do not sell" and "No retail copy" messages it's absolutely fine :).

I have a few games i got free from games reps. Im a games buyer for a shop, and the reps tend to give out free copies to keep us sweet. I dont complain. Its nice getting the chance to play the game without wasting money on it.

By ignore the 1000? do you mean you can't get any gamerscore off it?
