    I'm seeing a fourth category, ruby rewards. I'm assuming this is for people who wanna get their hands on the R9 295X2? or maybe they're going to start selling cards in twin 'crossfire ready' packs with this reward, who knows...

    If you are spending £1100+ on a card I don't think a handful of free games will be an issue

    How dependant is this on retailers honouring the promo/having enough codes?

    Bronze pack is a disappointment with so many old games being offered for free!

    IIRC, the 7990 came with every game which was offered through Never Settle at the time, which was eight. If the 295X2 comes with a fair few games bundled, it would go some way to offset the initial cost.

    What's wrong with it? Did you get less than you were expecting?

    To be honest, graphics cards are so expensive, and games so cheap, these kind of offers don't do anything for me - I know what games I like, and I'll buy them at the right price if I want them. If for some reason I haven't got a game that I want, and it came up in these bundles then great. It wouldn't sway my choice of card though - maybe choice of retailer.

    It's a pity that they took out some of the higher profile games. Still, when I buy a graphics card I don't really need I enjoy getting some games that I probably will never play.

    Re: News - AMD Never Settle Forever promo welcomes entry level GPUs

    Of all the retailers i buy a gpu from i always seem to miss out on these deals I'm sure some people will have fun with these games though! The silver and gold rewards look not bad too. Tbh alot of the indie games i'm sure i got from some indie bundles (guacamelee etc...)

    Still got a Bronze code which I've been waiting for new games to be added... looks like I'll have to wait longer.
