    Christ, it'll be "Buy One, Get One Free!" soon. Surely these must be selling. However, the second hand market is flooded with AMD's. Can't get an Nvidia card secondhand for love nor money!

    Think thats the problem Snips they are not selling. Otherwise these bundles would not exist.

    You're right but the way some go on about them, you would expect them to be flying out.

    People are waiting for the GTX780 and AMD next gen, or next gen consoles. Given that a 480 and above is still very capable, I don't blame them.

    Do people really decide on what card to buy based on what games are bundled with it, Wouldn't AMD do better investing the money spent on promotions on there R&D ?

    I can only assume all these deals means AMD's next gen of cards have been delayed yet again..

    Never ceases to amaze professional marketing....price is what counts these days.
    Want to add 100pounds worth of software? try reducing your price by half that and see what happens.

    Small reminder costs them basically nothing to add these games to bundles as they already helped develop them. Cutting prices would reduce there profit which is bad for them.

    Sounds like the Rumours that AMD are delaying the next Series release until they have emptied the product channel of existing stock, seem to be true. If they want this product sold asap, then it makes sense to start throwing in incentives.

    Great deal if you already want a Radeon and/or were planning on getting Crysis or Bioshock.

    I wouldn't say it costs them nothing, other wise why not bundle games with there cards all the time ? maybe it costs them very little but it still costs them something.

    the problem isn't just with AMD, it's with the consumer. Nobody has money to spend on anything. All businesses are hurting. ( except the local gas station..... where consumers spend the income they would have spent on non essentials. )
