AMD "Never Settle" Bundle Returns with New AAA Titles

AMD stumped PC gamers last October by announcing its first Never Settle game bundle that sees its various AIB partners bundle 2~4 AAA game titles with their performance-thru-extreme segment graphics cards. In a bid to overcome post-X'mas slump, and build the brand in the run up to summer, the company released its Never Settle Reloaded bundles.

Based around games that launch within Q1, the bundle covers four new AAA titles: Tomb Raider (2013); Bioshock Infinite, DMC: Devil May Cry (2013); and Crysis 3. That's right, one of the biggest PC games of this season will be freely distributed with AMD Radeon graphics cards. Those buying a single Radeon HD 7900 series graphics card get Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite; a single Radeon HD 7800 series card gets you Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider (2013).

Then there are a couple of mega bundles that combines the first Never Settle with Never Settle Reloaded. Buying a pair of Radeon HD 7900 series graphics cards (for CrossFire) gets you a total of six games: Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider (2013), FarCry 3, Hitman Absolution, and Sleeping Dogs. Quite a mouthful? Wait till you hear this - UK buyers get eight titles on purchase of the $1,600 ASUS ROG ARES II dual-GPU graphics card. This crate of games includes Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, DiRT Showdown, FarCry 3, Hitman Absolution, Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex Human Revolution, and Nexuiz. The bundles should go active by the end of February.

Burrrn!

"Burrrn" -well said.

That is a sold deal there. I actually wonder if AMD will have optimized Crossfire drivers for these games on-time and not 2 months later, since it is offering a better "buy two cards" deal....

I wish Nvidia would do this.
Considering the supposed huge profit margin they get on the GK104s... it's actually sad that they don't.
To keep on that same note... -1 nVidia.

Why? AMD just taking console ports selling to the next level.

nVidia's cards have barely budged in price, whilst AMD's have had multiple price drops and the bundles keep getting bigger and bigger. Reeks of desperation to me!

But yeah it's good for everyone, like i said cheap games! ;)

I noticed that almost all 7xxx card from Newegg had the bundles, but other vendors didn't.

Also, I think the bundle deal ended on Nov 31, so you probably missed it.

this is certainly a positive trend for gaming. i hope nvidia adopts this as well. if you want us to pay $350-600 for a graphics card why not throw in some games worth playing on it. Of course, in the end, they are just console ports anyway.
