that is OEM 8k series I mean the true 8k series
so you want them to bundle a free2play?
Wait wait wait...
UK Exclusive?! Now I have heard of everything.
yeah first Top Gear now this
So newegg isn't offering the bundle where you purchase two 7970/50 card.
Only thing they have going on is the TR/BS or C3/BS bundle.
I never ever looked for game bundles because they never had any when i needed it.
Only time when i got something decent with gfx card was RADEON 9600 PRO from GIGABYTE when i got Will Rock, Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness and Rainbow 6 Raven Shield.
Instead of lowering price, they just keep the games coming. Blah.
Bundling games with certain items "might" sway some people into buying a particular product, but majority of the time other variables are much more important than that; ie. price, performance, features, efficiency, etc..
you can just sell the games if you don't want them
And I just bought a second MSI 7870 from Newegg...
For Asia, replace Tomb Raider with DMC
I got burned with the first Never Settle bundle. Bought a Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X and received a grand total of zero games. AMD Support said they don't care when I contacted them. Apparently worldwide means only a handful of countries to AMD, and also a handful of shops from those countries, to get what everybody is supposed to get according to their press releases (and yes, they were shouting to the skies that it was the first true worldwide campaign).
Don't get me wrong, I love seeing good or great games bundled with graphics cards. However, having to jump through a plethora of hoops to actually get the promotional stuff makes it useless to me (and probably a lot of other buyers, too).
Borderlands 2 and Sleeping Dogs come to mind, not to mention any PC-exclusive. I wouldn't even really consider Witcher 2 a AAA Titles by conventional definition, it was a super niche game made by a somewhat small Polish game dev.
More than likely, or they are seeing sales drop and are afraid the decrease in revenue would look bad for their perspective buyers.
about all of the 6 recent games have some form of driver profile before their release, i think sleeping dogs didnt
times really have been changing since about a year, maybe even 1.5yrs ago, other than bethesda games
console port means different things to different people, 1 problem with borderlands is same assets (i think?), dx9 only, but the in game options are there kinda like batman
So does anyone know who in the USA is doing the full AMD bundle? Itching to pick up two 7970s to mess around with.
+1, if only they provided us with those free bundle games too, i'd be happy for sure to switch my current card with 7970 (just for gaming) and play the games with heavily AAA titles (let say with 8x MSAA)
DX9 only doesn't immediately mean it's a lesser game. Not all games have to push hardware to the extreme. Crysis 2 didn't launch supporting DX11, but they still had a dedicated team for the PC version. The same is true of Sleeping Dogs and Borderlands 2. I've heard great things about DMC as well--for a more recent title.
I had similar thoughts. As long as we hear that microstutter plagues crossfire worse than SLI, this promo will be held back.
Yeah gotta watch that shit with newegg.. You might get one with the offers but you find they expired..
After most of the games they are offering but i buy the card i wanted not the games i wanted as in the end those game will be 5-10$ later and the card you be wanting to use that much longer typically..
The final move by AMD to achieve FTW bankruptcy.
I don`t get why people are hating for getting FREE Games? Well, To be honest, the people hating usually hate on anything AMD anyway from my observation lol.
Tomshardware has done a review on XFire+Radeon Pro Vs SLi+inspector etc. Guess which won?
Cheaper, Faster and Free Games, Can`t be bad IMO
it sounds you're more desperate rather than amd
Yep I sold the first bundle to knock $40 off the cost of my 7950. As for those saying they wish NV would do this... stubborn loyalty to one brand simply limits you. This is a perfect example of how.
My issue has been resolved through the actions of an unknown benefactor. I am really grateful, whomever it may be that helped me out.
Never thought that posting here would solve the problem. Thank you TPU.
Looks like the Green team is Reeking of Desperation aswell...
Nvidia own bundle came out today.
