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.

Yeah...I was shopping for cards last week and I kept seeing NVIDIA cards that had offers that included Starcraft II. You had to get to the fine print to find out that it was a free trial. It was very irritating and I quickly lost the desire to even consider an upgrade.

This definitely should be a marketing 101 lesson. Anyone with the desire / skill set to upgrade their own video card likely does some research first. No computer enthusiast likes to be mislead. I'd even say it's a safe bet that someone who is considering an upgrade to one of the newer NVIDIA cards is already well aware of Starcraft II and has decided whether or not he/she wants it.

Where is the incentive here? A 10% discount is worth way more than a 7 hour trial.
