AMD has come out with some amazing game bundles with the Never Settle games bundling promotion. Just when you don’t think they could top the previous promotion, they come up with an offer that is crazier. This time, AMD will be doing the Never Settle Forever promotion, which is different than what they have done in the past. This time around they are letting gamers pick and choose the games the game titles that they want!
We think it is great that AMD is moving away from a fixed game model to a pick-your-game model that lets buyers redeem games off of an constantly updated list of. This should help keep things ‘fresh’ and ensure that you get game titles that you don’t already own. AMD is announcing ‘Radeon Rewards’ and it is currently split into three tiers: bronze, silver and gold.
It depends on what video card you buy to figure out what AMD Radeon Rewards tier you’ll be placed in. Right now AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards are the only ones eligible for Radeon Rewards. MD Radeon HD 7770 and 7790 video card purchases will get you in the bronze level, which you will be able to choose one game from the bronze list above. The Radeon HD 7800 video card series are in the silver category and you get two game titles from that offering. To get into the gold rewards you need to purchase an AMD Radeon 7950 or 7970 graphics cards and you get three game titles. The AMD Radeon HD 7990 will not be part of the new reward program, but will still come with the previous Never Settle: Ultimate Reload bundle. This means you get eight game titles with the Radeon HD 7990: BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3, Hitman Absolution, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Far Cry 3 and Deus X Human Revolution.
Compared to Never Settle Reloaded, the game titles in the new Never Settle Forever game bundle are a bit weaker. Notice that Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite are no longer options. We don’t think this is a big deal as we have a feeling Battlefield 4 and other AAA game titles will soon be added.
This appears to be a positive change and shows that AMD is committed to the gaming community. Maybe next time AMD will allow you to save your redemption credit for future use with the next bundle revamp! If they do that, they will have perfected best game bundling system that the world has ever seen! Then it might really last forever!
