Default AMDs Never Settle Game Bundle; Reloaded & Updated

AMD has updated their Never Settle game bundle. Gone are the previous titles and in their place is a quartet of new games. BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry have been added to new bundles but there is also one major surprise: Crysis 3 is now under the auspices of AMD's Gaming Evolved program.

These games are great incentives. I'd rather see one or two titles and some credit on Valve or some other PC market plac so we can buy games that we want.

I suppose you can't aways win but just a thought.

They are all partner titles from what I remember, but I personally wish they would give the games through steam. The Ubisoft and EA clients feel clunky as hell to me, and are just another client to run.

I'd take Origin any day over UPlay and Steam....

I'd take a cash INSTANT rebate (none of this MIR nonsense) over two games any day. BUT if it has to be two games...those are two damn good choices! Hope this works well for AMD.

Those seem like solid choces. Should help bring in some business.

The trick is to promote "friendly" titles while also giving customers incentive to buy the cards. That's exactly what's happening and I certainly don't have an issue with that.

Great choice of games to bundle their cards with. Too bad I'm not in the market for a new GPU.

Ditto. But I have been waiting for long time for Infinite to come out. And Tomb Raider? Yes Please. I've played just about every one of them since the first. Way...waayy back.

I got my second 7970 from NCIX today, but no coupon for the Reloaded bundle.
The card was an open box item.... but the never settle bundle was automatically added to the cart and it's there on the invoice.

What gives? Anyone know?
I send a message to customer care. I hope someone just forgot to put a coupon in the box.
