Nvidia has been hyping the special VR sauce baked into its Pascal graphics cards since the GeForce 1080 launch day event in early May of 2016. Since then, the company has put its money where its mouth is with its VR Funhouse experience-game-demo hybrid, game bundles with HTC's Vive, and the FCAT VR benchmarking tool. The green team's latest VR-related promotion is meant to entice prospective buyers to take the plunge into Oculus' Rift ecosystem.
Buyers in North America, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France can receive a VR game bundle containing The Unspoken, Superhot VR, and Wilson's Heart with a qualifying purchase. Nvidia will bundle the set of games to those that acquire an Oculus Rift headset, its accompanying Touch controllers, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, or 1080 Ti graphics card or a laptop containing one of those cards.
I don't have a lot of personal experience with The Unspoken or Wilson's Heart, but I loved my time with the non-VR version of Superhot, the bullet-time first person shooter-brawler released in February last year. I cannot think of a game that is thematically better-suited for VR than the black, white, and red time shifter. Superhot was the most innovative shooter I've played in years. All three games in the bundle are Oculus-exclusives. The offer requires a little bit of hoop-jumping, including logging into GeForce Experience, so gerbils are encouraged to read the requirements before buying.
