If you were on the fence about getting Far Cry 3 or a new solid-state drive, here’s a deal that might knock you off. During the Black Friday weekend, through the following Cyber Monday, anyone who purchases a Samsung SSD 840 (not Pro) internal solid-state drive will receive a free digital download of Far Cry 3, along with a discount on the drive itself.
Because the Samsung SSD 840 drive will actually replace the one you have in your computer, Samsung includes SmartMigration software to facilitate moving your operating system and data to your new solid-state drive, taking some of the guesswork out of the installation. You can buy the drive by itself, or with an installation kit if you don’t have the tools available at home, for a $30 premium. The drive is a low-to-mid range solid-state drive, but if you’re replacing a hard disk drive, it should make a huge difference in boot-up speeds and overall performance. The SSD 840 comes with a three-year warranty, as well.
The Samsung SSD 840 drives will be available online and in retail stores, in 120 GB, 250 GB, and 500 GB models. If you want to take advantage of the Far Cry 3 deal, you’ll need to purchase the 250 GB model, which will be selling for about $170, down from its usual $190. A code for a digital download of Far Cry 3 will be included for free.
