Free Game for Silent Hunter V Owners

Ubisoft is offering owners of Silent Hunter V a free copy of either Shaun White Snowboarding or Prince of Persia to compensate for server outages. Long-time reader Jim passes along the email he received, which offers the following explanation: "Following the recent temporary game server outages which may have caused disruption to some Silent Hunter 5 players on PC only, we would like to reward your patience if you have experienced any problems by offerring [sic] you a full downloadable game from the list provided below, completely free of charge."

So is this method of compensating players with free games more cost effective/profitable than having a single player game not require internet access?
For sure it is, see quote from Sepharo:
Yeah there is tons overlap in SH5 fans and Shaun White/Prince of Persia fans.
With virtually zero overlap, you can probably count the lost sales on one hand and besides, both titles are well into the bargain bin $10-20 range by now anyway. This isn't really costing them anything.
