NVIDIA StarCraft II Trial

NVIDIA's nZone has details on the availability of a trial version of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty with select graphics cards. Here's word on the sample of Blizzard's RTS sequel: "For a limited time only, buy any qualifying NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics card and get a key code for a free trial of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, good for 7 hours of game time or 14 days from activation (whichever comes first)." Thanks Big Download.

Meanwhile, in sanity land, people with confidence in their product continue to host free demos for anyone to download anytime. sigh....

Word. A demo as an incentive to buy hbardware? That's the craziest thing I've seen in a while. With my last 2 videocard purchases, I got Arkham Asylum and Resident Evil 5 for free. This deal sucks monkey ass by comparison.

It's no worse than Nvidia's other bullshit to be honest. Their total misuse of PhysX, years of buying up splash screens, paying developers to disable features for competitors and so on. I mean I think its lame too but honestly, how it is worse than any of that?

In my opinion, nVidia has stooped quite low with this type of promotion. Anyone who thinks there is "value" in this specific marketing pitch is too stupid and undeserving to participate as a true PC gamer. I think this is one of the worst promos I have ever witnessed in the sixteen years I have been buying and playing computer games.

Offering a trial of this game with a video card is a good way to not sell your video card... I think there was a link to this on fatwallet.com but it said SC2 with purchase of video card and I'm was like, hmmm, well I am not against buying a video card, and getting that game free doesn't seem too bad...but then the linked product made clear it was a trial....who the fuck wants a trial included with a video card?!

Someone will offer this game with a video card at some point.

The last free game I got with an Nvidia card was with the Evga 275gtx. When I registered it at there site I got a copy of Cryostasis for free. That was not an Nvidia promo it was Evga's. I think I played it for a whopping 15min and stored it on a hard drive. I still have UT99 that I got with my Voodoo3 back in the days when they gave away real games with cards. I also remember walking in the snow to school both ways up hill ... wow I must be old

Last week I noticed Newegg offering SC2 trial codes w/ select Geforce cards and though it was a promo run by them. Now I know it's nVidia offering the deal.

FYI, Newegg is offering the trial codes with cards other than only the GTX 460. http://bit.ly/cbnyNS

This depresses me. I went to check out an indie game on steam today and there was no demo. I am now expected to even buy indie games based on screenshots?

Why am I supposed to be PLEASED to get 'the chance' to geta demo?
Demos are free marketing. You should do EVERYTHING you can to get people to try your demo.
assuming....
that the game is good.

Meanwhile, in sanity land, people with confidence in their product continue to host free demos for anyone to download anytime. sigh....
