NVIDIA announced new graphics card+game bundle celebrating the launch of its GeForce RTX 30 Series "Ampere" graphics cards. Each of the three new cards, the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070, will include a copy of "Watch_Dogs: Legion" with the card, along with a 1-year subscription to the GeForce NOW cloud gaming service. "Watch_Dogs: Legion" is the latest chapter in the "Watch_Dogs" franchise of open-world RPGs. The company appears to be building the user base of GeForce NOW with RTX 30 Series sales. Unlike EA's Origin Access, which is game-as-a-service (a form of SaaS), GeForce NOW is a cloud gaming service that streams gameplay across the Internet. The RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 launch around September 17, with prices starting at USD $1,499 and $699, respectively; while the RTX 3070 launches some time in October, at $499. "Watch_Dogs: Legion" releases on October 29.
