    AMD updated its "Never Settle" game bundles for all graphics card models upwards of Radeon HD 7700 series. The update adds a game to each of the three product families - HD 7700, HD 7800, and HD 7900 series. The offer covers new purchases made after the 15th of May. Buyers of single-GPU HD 7900 series graphics cards no longer have to choose between Crysis and Tomb Raider; while buyers of HD 7800 series get Crysis 3 Hunter Edition. In essence, single-GPU HD 7900 and HD 7800 series buyers get the same bundles.

    You get Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, Bioshock: Infinite, Tomb Raider (2013), and FarCry 3: Blood Dragon; with both single-GPU Radeon HD 7900 series, and Radeon HD 7800 series. Buyers of Radeon HD 7700 series will get an addition, too, Tomb Raider (2013). This is a limited offer that runs while supplies last, covers only new purchases made after May 15, and only targets North America, EMEA, Australia, and New Zealand.

    God Damn It! I just ordered a Powercolor 7870 Myst 12hrs ago :banghead:

    I just contacted NewEgg and damn their efficiency. They already shipped the item and so can not add the extra game :(

    Yep, what bunk. I have had my 7970 for only about a month and get excluded even though I paid the same amount of money just a little before someone else purchasing now. This updated bundle should have been retroactive to some extent.

    "7700 series". That is quite vague, and a bit misleading, because the never settle bundle is not applicable if you buy a 7750. It's from 7770 and up.

    Same. I :roll: at the people complaining about getting free games. Nvidia gives you how many?

    PS: I didn't get a single game with my 7950. BooHoo :rolleyes:

    Well, I tried calling them, but there is a 20min queue, so I sent an E-mail.

    It seems just plain ridiculous that I would have to return the card and re-order it in order to get the extra free game :/

    Has anyone else ever had problem with NewEgg's customer service?

    Edit - Update, I got someone in the US and they sent the card out :rockout:
    I simply pointed out how illogical it would be for me to return the card for a refund and reorder the exact same card with the new bundle.

    Damn - NCIX just put a pormotion on the 7870 Myst that I ordered from Newegg. $220 now with the new Never Settle Bundle.

    Time to e-mail newegg to see if they will retroactively match the price.

    First thing that pops in my mind when I hear "Never Settle" is a suite of driver updates and optimizations.. but in this case, just a bunch of game bundles for specific countries. Perhaps they should rename it to "Free Games".

    PCCaseGear

    Does anyone know if PCCaseGear are participating in the Never Settle bundle? I tried calling but my phone is on the verge of killing itself, and its a weekend so they aren't answering anyway. I just want to know if anyone else has bought items from them. (HIS 7790)
