It is confirmed that the new owners of Xonar Phoebus sound card and Vulcan Pro headset under the “Republic of Gamers” branding in Asia Pacific can be eligible to get 1 PC game for free- well… at least for those who have made the purchase in Asia Pacific. The choices are out of 5 games: Splinter Cell ‘Conviction’, I am Alive, Assassin’s Creed III, Ruse and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. As of now, Asus ROG seems to be limiting this offer to Asia Pacific regions.
There’s no information about it yet, but Xonar Phoebus is currently sold for $198.99 and Vulcan Pro is sold for $185.99 in the United States via Amazon, so that should give you some idea of the approximate pricing around here. It is not clear if and/or when will this be in India, but since India is a part of Asia Pacific, it should be a matter of “when” rather than matter of “if”.
Do note, that this is available only in Asia Pacific regions and since they’ve clearly indicated the offer in the packaging, it is easy for you to know that you’re picking the one with the free game. It is a good attraction for those who buy premium audio hardware. Personally, I would like to see this as a trend with any gaming-oriented hardware. Just like premium graphics cards, such hardware commands a high price. So having some incentive with it will make this a good deal.
