Microsoft Giving Xbox One Early Adapters Free Gifts

/ Nov 20th, 2014 No Comments

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

The Xbox One is set to turn one on Nov. 22, and Microsoft is celebrating by giving away content to early adapters. Anyone who purchased an Xbox One in any form before Nov. 11 will automatically be rewarded, and random winners will receive physical prizes.

According to a post on Xbox Wire, those who qualify will receive a Year One gamer picture, a Day One and Year One dashboard background, a Year One web background, and free rentals of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods. Content is expected to be delivered via email by Nov. 21.

Microsoft will also be giving out physical games and other prizes to random fans. Prizes include:

  • Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle
  • Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle
  • One month membership to Xbox One-exclusive EA Access service
  • Tiger Shark cash card for Grand Theft Auto V worth $200,000 in-game GTA Online dollars
  • Forza Horizon 2 Limited Edition Casio G-Shock sports watch
  • Xbox Live Gold 12-month membership digital code

Additional prizes will also be given out. Microsoft did not announce when to expect winners to be announced.

Quick Take

Microsoft is doing a nice job rewarding Xbox One owners with some extra goodies. However, those who purchased the console on launch date should still feel jilted given the price cut and bundling of the system. Microsoft should reward day one purchasers with a free game.
