AMD's offer is more attractive to me, personally.

Their page only lists the "selected retailers" for four countries: UK, Sweden, Finland and Norway.
Those hardly cover the EMEA region, or even Europe. Are they going to add more?

Also, when will this campaign start?

Pass: Nvidia's official press release states the areas mentioned in the article, but doesn't provide a link to anywhere but the US claim page. The page you've linked to, meanwhile, is on GeForce.co.uk - so I'm surprised it has *anything* other than UK and IE retailers on it.

The campaign started on Monday in the US, so any purchases from today onwards internationally are valid.

In order to claim the in-game bonuses, you have to have a code. That code you get from a coupon that supposedly comes with the graphics card. But that's not guaranteed, so not every single purchase from tomorrow morning onwards till April 30th is eligible.

Even on their site they say: "Please check the product description of the graphics card you are purchasing to confirm that the coupon is included."

So people, don't rush to the stores to get any GeForce 650 and up card thinking you'll automatically get the bonuses. Look for the coupon, or ask for one.

Bundling games with GFX cards will not make me buy from either Nvidia or ATi. The quality of the card, drivers and performance and positive reviews here of course help me choose which card to buy. That has often than not guided me to a Nvidia card. The rest is just filler.

This does actually tempt me, but only because I was looking at getting a 650 or 660 and I play PS2 & WOT pretty much exclusively these days.

I might have to save a bit of cash after my NY trip this week.

Since yesterday, another retailer from Denmark has been listed on the promotion's page.

There's another issue that hasn't been clarified: whether buying two cards for an SLI setup grants you twice the bonuses. It would only be fair, since you're paying double the money and the second card, had it been bought by another person would be eligible for a bonus too.
Their terms and conditions page only says: "Limit one offer per person per transaction." Is this legalese for: you only get the bonus one, no matter how many cards you buy?
