Meh not as impressive as Never Settle bundle, I mean they give away a coupon for SHIELD? Not everyone is interested in SHIELD (me for example) AMD's offers 3 games with their most powerful cards. NVIDIA is taking a risk by have 2 not released games in their bundles. They could suffer delays like Watch Dog did and screw up. Example is the PS4 Watch Dog bundle, some retailers honor it, some just straight out cancelled their orders.

Meh,

I just hate the fact that Nvidia's response has been offering free games + a rebate coupon that I can't care less about, instead of dropping the price on GTX770 to really hurt leftover HD7970s/R9-280x sales....

Yea the bundle is good. Unfortunately not retailers have key codes left and its only second day of the sale. In fact at newegg.ca they advertise 3 games while supplies last, when you go to checkout you only get one. At MEMx they are out of key codes for now. I was told they may get some more, when, they are not sure. I thought the incentive was to buy the cards now get the bundle. Later on when the game bundle ends there may be another price cut. If you ask me its shady advertising by Nvidia!!!

Not sure how it works for etailers now, but the last free game I got from NCIX (it was a freebie that came with an Intel CPU)..I received the game code in an email 3 to 5 days AFTER I received the card at my place...

From NCIX customer rep:

The game codes for both promotions are emailed out 3-5 business days after your item is received (in your hands). Please make sure you check your spam/junk folder as the email tends to be filtered.


Are you sure that the NVIDIA game bundle is PHYSICAL cardboard coupons?

I know I said it once, but I will say it again. I miss the FTP bundles they had on the 6XX series of cards. Those were much more useful to a lot of people than the same games over and over again.
