GeForce Holiday Bundle looks like a better deal than a new console

If you haven’t already pre-ordered a PS4 or Xbox One, Nvidia might be able to save you the rigmarole of cancelling one or the other when you discover that either a) a couple of launch titles have been pushed back or b) controversial Terms and Conditions have signed your blood type over to advertising companies.

Their recommendation? Get an £800 Titan instead, along with the new Batman, new Assassin’s Creed, and new Splinter Cell. Sorted.

The deal runs from October 28 till November 26, and covers the marginally more affordable GTX 770 and 780 as well as the Titan. Buyers of any three of the GPUs (from participating retailers, note) will receive free downloadable copies of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. 

“Each of the three games has been extensively optimized to make the most of NVIDIA graphics cards, and PCs in general,” say the manufacturers. “Batman: Arkham Origins, launching October 25th, exemplifies this with half a dozen PC-exclusive enhancements.”

In the US only, you can also get $100 off the Shield - Nvidia’s handheld PC-streaming console that everybody kinda wants to try but couldn’t possibly justify buying at $349 a pop.

There’s a slightly lesser version of the bundle too, which cuts Batman from the bag o’ games and $50 from the Shield deal. To take advantage of that, you’ll want to buy a GeForce GTX 660, 670, 680, 690, or 760 during the same period.

If you like, you can call them your ‘launch titles’. And make a low whirring noise with your lips when turning your upgraded PC on. Next-gen, schmext-gen. Tempted?

The shield is a piece of crap. And while I have to admit this is a good bundle (Origins + AC4) it's probably not going to be as good as what you can get with AMD (Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider)

Those are all old games you can get for 10-15 bucks on Steam during a sale. I'd rather take the 3 brand new games that go for $60.

I bought a 780 a couple weeks ago so I only got Batman. While I'm a tad disappointed it's no big deal and because the card is unbelievable and Batman is good enough for me.
