    Ubisoft's garbage to sell graphics cards? lol. EA or Crytek would make better sense.

    Indeed.

    The bile that Ubisoft put out recenty isn't good for NVIDIAs reputation.

    So people who bought a card earlier or on day 1 are f´d up?
    ...and with "people", i mean those beta testers.

    Real nice dick move from Nvidia.
    Should i return my card and order a new one, cause i´m still in time?

    Yes, unfortunately. But you could try speaking with your retailer.

    Great! That means I'll be able to buy a code cheaply off someone who's bought one of those cards.

    They said that isn´t possible. I bought my card 2 weeks ago and i could still return it if i want and buy another one, but it´s not worth it.
    It´s ok though, i´ll still play those games anyway....somehow....

    Couldn't really care for The Crew, but Far Cry 4 and AC Unity are games I'm looking forward to.

    I don't care about Unity or Crew, and i will buy Far Cry 4 on some Steam sale, for a ridiculously low price. With all DLCs and stuff. And only if it's any good of course.

    No one forced any of you to buy any of those cards at release or before this deal. Next time should they say "Cards are for sale starting to day but if you wait 3 or 4 months to purchase one, you might get a free game!"? It's possible they didn't even know they were going to do a bundle with Ubi. I know the conspiracy theorist here would say otherwise "oh they knew they were going to do this, their sole purpose on earth is to rip us off! blah blah blah" This stuff happens with other products and has been going on year after year. Too bad for bad timing, but don't blame the companies for it.

    ^ this and
    as our fellow Spets said earlier, farcry 4 is the only game i care about but thats not the reason i will get 970/980.
    These are fairly famous cards now a days and once deal starts rolling, we will see super cheap game bundle codes on ebay, like we did for AMD cards.
    no big deal :/

    How about if you buy something, and I mean any product, and they say 'Hey guys! Wait three months for the product to be on sale and save!'. Who knows, you could buy mouthwash and a week later they could be selling it with an extra 10 percent bonus ;). What about on the larger scale of things? A revised model of car comes out in three months, maybe with a free bonus pack of better rims, body pack, etc. Free bonuses worth $6000. There's so many examples someone can use.

    Let's face it though, as others have mentioned teaming up with the 30 framers isn't the best association. However, away from Guru3D it's probable the majority will fall for their tripe, it's still a win for NVIDIA.

    Well i was interested in this bundle because i´m planning to get a GTX970 and i wouldn´t mind getting Far Cry 4 for free but apparently Nvidia doesn´t consider Portugal a country, so it seems i´m out of luck...

    Unless i can redeem the code through another country, does anyone knows if that´s possible...

    Still it´s a nice offer for anyone who buys a card from them.
