New Xbox One Promotion: Console and Any Free Game
Looking to buy an Xbox One? Well, next week is your week.
Yesterday Microsoft announced that for the week of September 7th (through the 13th) that with the purchase of any Xbox One console, the buyer can choose any of the illustrious titles that are available for the Xbox One including but not limited to Titanfall, Destiny, Madden 15, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition or Dead Rising 3, just to name a few.
However, this promotion will only be available in the United States during this time. It is currently unclear if this promotion will make its way to any other markets in the near or distant future.
There are upsides and downsides of the Xbox One promotion though.
The upside being that you can really get more bang for your buck when you purchase one of Xbox One’s Madden 15 bundle or Forza Motorsport 5 bundle, because on top of that purchase you can choose another free game! That would be 2 free games for the price of just the system itself.
Nonetheless there is a slight downside. That being that the promotion cannot be combined with any other promotions. In short, pre-orders are not included with the deal Microsoft is offering. Also refurbished Xbox One systems and used games are not eligible for the promotion.
As the Xbox One launches in 29 new markets throughout September, this will be a ploy by Microsoft to even the playing field with the Sony PlayStation 4.
