Mafia with Mafia II Preorders

Preordering the Mafia II Digital Deluxe Edition on Direct2Drive now carries an added bonus, as this now comes with a free copy of the original Mafia. The release of the open-world crime sequel is currently expected on August 24, which is when this offer expires. The Mafia II Digital Deluxe Edition of the game includes the Made Man Pack, a digital art book, the game's soundtrack, and a digital map of Empire Bay.

I meant the included version of Mafia 1, not Mafia 2. I know Mafia 2 needs Steam regardless of where you buy it, which I said in my previous post.

I'd guess it does use Steam. They don't actually have Mafia 1 for sale on their site, the page just has the logo for Mafia 2. Also they promise to let you "play Mafia 1 now", which isn't something D2D usually does -- unlike Steam they have no way of disabling the free game if the preorder doesn't pan out.

So I imagine they're just piggybacking on Steam's offer of Mafia 1. Maybe with special pre-order codes, or maybe they provide your Mafia 2 code immediately and any copy activated on Steam before release gets a free copy of Mafia 1.

Seems like handling cancellations of the multi-service pre-order would be a huge pain, but from googling it looks like D2D maybe doesn't accept cancellations on any preorders.
