Starting with playing VR games today is pricier than it once was. Sadly, with this newest promotion from NVidia, the pricey VR gaming still remains unchanged. The good news however is that you’ll get your hands on a number of free VR games as soon as you invest on an Oculus Rift headset, controllers as well as some of the GeForce GTX GPU’s.
As soon as you spend some cash in purchasing any of these mentioned items from selected stores, you can get your hands on these free VR games. Among the games that are given away are Wilson’s Heart, Superhot VR as well as The Unspoken.
Some of the GPU’s that qualify in this promo bundle include: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, GeForce GTX 1080, GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1060. This will then open door to a number of some Pascal cards which can range from Titan XP, Titan X, GeForce GTX 1050 including GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. These omissions will not be much of a loss seeing that it would be difficult to pay up money for a Titan as well as the others using a GeForce GTX 1050 or perhaps 1050 Ti just for VR games would be too much.
In a recent interview, NVidia says “If you are looking to take advantage of this new bundle, make sure the retailer, e-tailer or system builder you purchase your bundle from is participating in this offer—Nvidia cannot provide download codes and coupons for purchases made at non-participating retailers, e-tailers or system builders,”
For list of the authorized vendors that offer these promotions, click this link and track your region. As an example, if you’re living in the US you can only find Newegg and Amazon as the participating vendors for this promotion. Within UK, you’ll find Scan as the only participating seller for this promotion.
The list is only quite a few for now however NVidia is expected to add more participants to its list seeing that this promo also includes laptops and systems that fall under the qualifying GPU specs.
You can have your hands on an Oculus Rift and an Oculus run for as much as $598. With that amount you can add a GeForce GTX 1060 to your package by adding $200 (can be lesser using mai-in-rebate).
