Those with problem Xbox Ones to get free game

Written by David Stellmack

Choose between the Microsoft published launch titles

Microsoft is apparently trying to ease the pain of those who have to send their console in for repair by offering those owners a free game for their trouble. According to what we are hearing through the grape vine, Microsoft will provide these owners a digital copy of the Microsoft published title of their choice.

Owners can choose from Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Zoo Tycoon. It seems that for the moment the ability to pick a free game is limited to those with faulty blu-ray drives, but it is possible that it would be extended to cover more types if issues, should other issues raise their head.

As for the number of Xbox One owners that are experiencing the Blu-ray drive issue, Microsoft claims that it is a very small number of Xbox One onwards who have had this issue.
