Where was there any news of Doom 3 shipping with the NV40's?

FUDo from the Inkwell speculated a few months ago that the nv40 would ship with Doom3.

Since Doom3 will not be released this month, don't expect to find a copy of D3 in your 6800 box.

Aug 3rd is the release day of DOOM3. Not likely any card sold before that date will have DOOM3 bundle.

I wish I could've gotten a free copy of Doom 3 with my card. August 3rd is an "official date" now, still not confirmed by Id. If you hear anything, which I have heard this from the Inquiror, IT'S A LIE!!!

I guess nVidia could of included a voucher for Doom 3 like ATI did with HL 2. ATI marketed their 9800XT/9600XT's using HL2 to help in sales and here they are a year later and still no copy of HL2 yet lol.

It is possible Nvidia will sign a deal with Doom 3 that it will be shipped with future NV40 cards.

But currently no, No reciept or anything like that.

That would be sweet if later on when it comes out they ship a voucher or hell even the game inside.

Actually I'd rather not see another voucher type deal. You saw how well that went over with ATI and Half Life 2.

Well that was because HL2 didn't get released on time. Or even within 6 months of when it was suppost to lol.

I'm sure Doom 3 will be out the first part of August. And even after Doom 3 is released i would still like to see a voucher used for it because i would rather have the full boxed version instead of an OEM style with just the CD's.

They were pretty sure HL2 was gonna be released, I dont like the idea of vouchers. If the game is available. Sure Bundle it. But nothing is a said deal until its in your hands. Not a piece of paper.

i agree... they shouldn't include vouchers for games unless the games have been released, to ensure that there is no confusion or angry people.

I'm with Chris...vouchers are just a bad idea. No reason to give people more hastle than they need to. I'd rather have it in the box of the card that I buy than have to drive out to Best Buy or whoever, then have salesmen not know what it is. Might not accept them for a few weeks after release. Some might require the receipt of the card and what-not....just not worth the potential problems.
