Crysis 3 is a AMD title?

People shouldn't be fooled by these promotions. Retailers only have a certain amount of free games they are going to give for free, once that pools runs dry no free game for anyone. Right now there are 100's of people complaining on forums about these deals where the retailers are still advertising the promotions but have no free games left. BUYERS BEWARE!

I don't even know anymore. EA has good ties with both Nvidia and AMD. When Battlefield 3 released, you saw both companies marketing the game. Crysis 3 I guess is the same. Although Crytek and Nvidia are like best of buddies.

That 7900 deal isn't bad if you're looking to upgrade.

I really hate how those guys market games. It's confusing and scary to see a big logo with NVIDIA: THE WAY IT SHOULD BE PLAYED!!! when you have an AMD card :P

True. What I love even more is when a game is Nvidia sponsored, but runs better on AMD cards. LOL

Yeah if I ever lose my job my plan B is sue NVIDIA for misleading logo :D

It's a PC title.

#16 Posted by Sword-Demon (6970 posts) -
that 7900 deal is tempting.. and my 4890 is starting to struggle with more recent games.

I'm not sure "pile of games I already have" constitutes much of a value add, AMD.

You shouldn't be scared of that, you should be happy. Even if it is for a different brand it means that one of the companies provided assistance to the developer to make a better PC version. And it doesn't always work where it runs better on the brand that sponsored it. Recently, Far Cry 3 runs better on Nvidia cards, even though it is AMD.

So, you already have Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Crysis 3, despite none yet being released? :?

How are they, care to fetch me a few copies from the future?

Give these guys some credit, this is some fine advertising... much better than having some video with a GPU "dancing" to dubstep or whatever, which'll happen, eventually!

Because everyone else must have the same exact games you have, right? There is totally no way whatsoever that someone looking to buy a new graphics card doesn't already have these games, right? :roll:

Check my Steam history. Preorders fully paid for. (I don't think Origin has a similar feature.)

Those don't exactly seem like they'd be uncommon parts of one's library, especially if they're dropping $550 on two 79xx cards.

3 of those are not out yet, the other 3 are still relatively new. Not everyone buys every game that looks interesting. All things considered it's a good deal.

For $560 w/out tax. Sounds like a steal :|. I'm sure these are download only too, making the deal even sketchier.

It benefits AMD, software developers and the general x86 PC market. Software developers ussually seeks for OEM deals.

Wait... I thought crysis 3 was nvidia sponsored?

Alright... but still, here, you'd be getting them for free... or at least for cheaper, if this offer adds some price to the original card value...

And obviously, just because you have them all, doesn't mean it applies to others... but wait, something seems off here...

Are you a Nvidia fanboy? :shock:

Because let me tell you, I have more love for consolite fanboys than for GPU fanboys... they're conflicting with the most defining PC platform trait... its open nature where you can pick any hardware combo you want!

I'm still jumping through hoops with AMD and Ubisoft trying to get a working Far Cry 3 code from that 7970 deal...

Crysis 2's DX11 patch was nVidia sponsored.

I wouldn't describe myself as a "fanboy" (and honestly, I don't think any company would want a fan as harshly critical as me), but yes, with the exception of a 9700, a Rendition Verite 2200, and an S3 ViRGE, I've exclusively used Nvidia GPUs for the past 15 years or so.

Cool need to upgrade this just give me the excuse I need
#33 Posted by redskins26rocs (2674 posts) -

After Thanksgiving they gave hitman absolution, far cry 3, and sleeping dogs with hd 7950. Awesome deal, made the $300 i spent even more worth it. Hope they have a combo with bioshock in the future around summer so i can make my rig even more awesome before i go off to college with crossfire and more free games.

#35 Posted by BPoole96 (22802 posts) -
Wow I might have to get a 7970 after all. I was planning on buying Bioshock infinite and Crysis 3 anyway so that would take off the cost. I can also sell each of my 6950s for at least $100 each. Decisions, decisions...
#36 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
No thanks. I own Sleeping Dogs already and the only others I would want is Tomb Raider and Farcry 3.
