Just received 10 keys for Borderlands 2. I did not preorder the game. I own Borderlands, but I don't think that has any correlation to the golden keys in game.

Where did these keys come from?

How exactly did that happen? Btw, even preorder wasn't worth 10 keys... – Orc JMR Nov 29 '12 at 13:20
Er, count yourself lucky I guess. Haven't heard of anyone getting that many without modifying some files (naughty naughty) – Alex Nov 29 '12 at 14:48
I haven't modded any files. All I know is: I bought the game Sunday, two days letter, message saying: You have received 10 golden keys! I was suprised, but I'm not sure if others have been getting this or not. – waifu Nov 29 '12 at 17:05
I also got 10 keys after signing up with Shift from their website. – badp Nov 30 '12 at 11:00
@badp: Now I feel cheated! I had to work to get the 3 keys from a Shift Code weekend. – MBraedley Nov 30 '12 at 11:59

After their fix for this issue they gave 10 golden keys to everyone that was affected.

It also affected XBOX and PS3 players, although that particular link only discusses PC.

If you sign up at Gearbox Shift you will receive golden keys as a reward. If you use Shift codes you can unlock even more golden keys.
