Valve has teamed up with Nvidia to bundle a copy of Portal with future Nvidia graphics cards. Isn’t that awesome? The catch? It’s an “extended” demo not a full free game. The game promotion also applies to current owners of Nvidia cards and the offer will be hooked (you will see an advertisement saying this offer is available) with future driver updates (if you happen not to know. But you do know because you are reading it here).
If I was Nvidia, I would rather have my name plastered on a $15 dollar off coupon deal instead of this crap Valve tries to push on us. Or give us the full game for free. If you haven’t noticed, people love free (which applies to mostly everything). Free = more potential customers. Think about it Valve.
