Received my large email with lots of used game codes but haven't gotten my follow up Tomb Raider. Entered my code on Saturday. Are they still dolling them out?


Buddy of mine had the exact same thing happen. He even sent them an email asking them what's going on and has had no reply for a few days now.

And there is an admin from AMD looking into it:

Here is the update I think everyone has been waiting for:

*****
After thorough investigation, the "fatal error" message that occured two days ago has been identified as the root cause to a server error that then sent a number of customers the exact same game-keys.

An e-mail is being sent to those affected customers updating them on the issue. I suspect the vast majority of people that posted to this thread are among those affected. I have been told that within the next 24-48 hours, new game-keys will be sent out.

I appreciate the update man! I was curious if they were ever going to get around to fixing their mistake. :)

It looks like a bunch of people are still waiting for their Tomb Raider and Bioshock codes as well from various places. I can only assume that they have just been buried under emails and stuff because of the "fatal error" listed previously. Hopefully they get everything sorted out and at least get out the TR codes by Tuesday.

I ironically got my TR code fine, but every other code I received was used (and or didn't appear in my e-mail correctly).

Got my TR code the other day and used it without a problem. Haven't gotten BioShock yet, but I assume that'll be sent out a few days before release like TR was.

I also got a huge Email from them with no codes for Tomb Raider and Bioshock, but bunch of codes for other games that I was not frankly expecting. Surprisingly, Crysis 3 was able to successfully register on Origin. All other game codes were invalid.
Since my card (7850) was not even part of Crysis promotion, I wonder if it was just added by AMD later or was it simply their mistake/my gain? Same for rest of the games in the Email (Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution, Far Cry 3).
Sent them Email and so far got no response, whatsoever.

I'm still waiting on my Tomb Raider code as well. Figure I won't panic until the 5th but it makes me jealous seeing all these people with it at least sitting in their games list.

Well to update my situation, I received an email right after signing up that had no code in the box for Tomb Raider and immediately panicked. Emailed support and didn't hear back (wan't really planning on hearing back since it is the weekend and I signed up Friday). But last night, which was only a day after I signed up, I got a second email which was just text and it had my Tomb Raider key in it.

i currently have a hd 6770 card in my desktop atm and although it runs decent. i could still use a lil boost in modern games these days. i am wondering if the sapphire hd 7850 1gb overclock version is a decent upgrade to my current card. i play on 1440x900 resolution with 1 screen if that matters

It is absolutely a much stronger card, and I doubt you'll really be cpu limited(unless your processor is like 5 years old, I'm assuming it isn't). However connection types and power supply could be a limiting factor for what you could upgrade to.

What games you get depends on which Graphics Card you buy. There is a bundle for Crysis + Bioshock, Tomb Raider + Bioshock, or Crysis + Bioshock + Tomb Raider + previous Never Settle Games if you buy two HD 7900 Series cards.

More details here.

It would be a pretty solid upgrade depending on what games u play. You won't be maxing anything out at that resolution. But if you want to have most games run well at medium or high settings that is a good buy if u wanted the games.

You'll be fine. The code doesn't expire until January 2014.

Still haven't gotten my TR code. Sucks, but I'll keep waiting, what else am I going to do!

People over at the AMD forum linked blearily are loosing their shit over this whole thing. I've tweeted/emailed and posted on their Facebook to no avail. I agree it lame, but I'm more upset over the lack of response from AMD. I know eventually the codes will come in, it's the some what poor customer support that's worrisome. Again, I get they are trying to fix a pretty big issue so stuff takes time but total bummer right now.

Same boat. Would I have liked to have the code now so I could preload? Yes. But i'm not going to lose my shit over it. I'll get it eventually. And I can't complain for getting this game and Bioshock for $39.

How does this redemption for the games work. Am I suppose to get something from Newegg or AMD to submit to Steam and then Steam gives you another Code?
I ordered my Card last Thursday, and other then the invoice from newegg. i haven't received anything.

In my case (I bought from Amazon) it was an Email from Amazon on the same day the card shipped with the code to submit to AMD.
