NVIDIA to respond to AMD’s challenge with real video games
Competition between NVIDIA and AMD has reached new heights with NVIDIA saying it will soon offer certain GeForce models together with Metro: Last Light in an attempt to counter the extremely successful Never Settle: Reloaded campaign by AMD.
Until this moment NVIDIA offered in-game currency for games such as World of Tanks, Hawken and PlanetSide 2 along with its higher-end graphics cards such as GeForce GTX 660 and better – a measure that has proven to be not exactly popular with gamers since AMD bundles its high-end graphics cards with blockbusters such as Far Cry 3.
Starting as soon as tomorrow NVIDIA will bundle its GeForce GTX 660 and faster video cards with Metro: Last Light – a dark post-apocalyptic first-person shooter by 4A Games. The problem is that the game does not launch until May 2013 but even then GeForce cards will surely become a better deal than they are today.
