If you want to play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon or the latest SimCity game, AMD's processors just got a little more attractive. Newegg is bundling those games with a bunch of FX and A-series processors. The deal extends from the $200 FX-8350 down to the $65 A6-5600K. Purchased separately, the games are worth $50.
This is a limited-time offer; the deal expires just before midnight on December 2. It also appears to be a Newegg exclusive. I don't see similar bundles at other vendors.
AMD tweeted the deal, so it's clearly in the loop. I wonder if we could see games included with AMD processors on a more widespread basis moving forward. The company did plenty of bundling with its last-gen Radeons, and Kaveri is just around the corner. Hmmm.
