because no one replied on SW... how do these bundles even work anyway?BrunoBRS

Well, back whenI got my gtx 570, I got a 2 game-cards (almost like cardboard cd inserts) that each had a Game key on them.

One was for Mafia II, the other for Just Cause II.   I redeemed them on Steams Redeem game code option.

 

That is how it worked for me then. I am sure these are somewhat similar.

Looks like a slide has been leaked. It shows AMD's plans for game bundles when you buy one of their graphics cards over a Nvidia card.

And I must say, it's PRETTY GOOD!

That's awesome. Not to go off-topic but, Nvidia is offering Metro Last Light right now. I kinda wish I didn't buy my gtx 670 two months ago :-(

Aren't there new NVIDIA cards coming out relatively soon?

They ususally have on the site you order from if it comes with any games, or not.

I knew mine was coming with those games before I ordered it. That, and EVGA's warranty options were the reason I went with EVGA's offer.

I don't think all 8 of those games will be one bundle

No hehe. It'll probably be distributed the same way it was with the first Never Settle promotion. I reckon Watch Dogs will go along with the 8000 series. O.o

Yup. Rumored to come out within 1-2 months or so.

the problem is, if you already have a gtx 670, I don't think any new card will be worth it, no matter what game is in the bundle.

forget about Titan, that's for epeeny enhancement.

Hahaha AMD must be so despaired.....giving out free games if you buy their cards....and then you can't play those games properly on these cards xD

Well okay, probably they're clever enough to pick games wich run smooth with AMD Cards....just don't expect anything else than that to run smooth on AMD ;P

And yeah, this comes from a passionate AMD Hater who had a comp for years that used an AMD Graphics card and made nothing but trouble out most of my games, ever since I switched to NVIDIA never had the slightest problem...only if I didn't update drivers when all new games came out, but well, that's no big deal.

So, yeah, call me AMD hater or NVIDIA Fanboy, I don't care, I just know what I still would be better off with ;)

I'm a blind fanboy and love telling people how they made bad choices in life to make my choices feel superior.

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Well I just built my PC a few weeks ago and got Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite with my GPU. I got a postcard size card with the GPU that had a code I entered at their site. When I did that, I got two emails. One five minutes after entering the code for Crysis 3 off origin and a week later when Bioshock released, I got an email with the cd key for Bioshock on Steam.

People like you crack me up. So because years ago you had issues with a AMD card and have never used one again after, you actually think it's okay to continue bashing years later and it won't make you look ignorant? NEW FLASH: I never used an AMD card before now and ALL my games run great on my AMD card. Thanks for entertaining me. You remind me of a 70+ year old man. Set in his ways and ignorant to the advancements of the world (or AMD in this case).

You are a special kind of stupid.  But Nvidia does this same crap, except their game bundles are crappier

i ordered an XFX 7870 (same brand as my 5770, which has yet to fail me), and it wasn't directly from the manufacturer because, you know, the manufacturer is on the other side of the equator. i'd love to get some games with it, especially if bioshock infinite is one of them :P

Minus Watch Dogs, and BF4 that list looks like crap tbqh.

What's the game between Battlefail and Watch Dogs?

Total War: Rome 2, CoH 2, and Grid 2 look like crap? Not sure if serious.....

I ordered my GTX570 from Newegg I want to say. 

We have a XFX6870 in my gf's rig.  Card seems to do just fine, haven't had any issues out of it other than some crap drivers from time to time. Same could be said for the GTX570 though, especially for the first 4 months or so of its launch. (thats when it finally got some good drivers)

i... can't tell :| but it seems to be either about zombies, pirates, or both.

Would rather get a NVidia card and Metro to be honest.

Raven Cry. I never heard of it until now. Most of these games aren't appealing but they're basically free. I'm only interested in Watch Dogs, Company of Heroes 2, and maybe.. Blacklist just to see how it turns out. I just hope game publishers don't complain by blaming bad sales and lack of profit due to promotional deals.
#31 Posted by flipin_jackass (9729 posts) -
Not bad. I bought my 7850 back in December and it came with FC3, Hitman and a discount code for MoH or something. Had I bought it a couple of weeks before, I would have got Sleeping Dogs too. I`m not sure though if that was XFX, AMD or a Newegg promo though.
