Buy an Xbox One Next Week Choose a Game for Free

For one week only – from September 7 through September 13 – when you buy an Xbox One at participating retailers in the U.S., you’ll get a free Xbox One game of your choice.

BXGG

And it really is your choice: Whether you want to lock-and-load with your friends in Destiny  or Titanfall, face the legions of hell in Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, hack the planet in Watch Dogs, or hit the sports arena of your choice in Madden NFL 15 or NHL 15.

This offer is valid for any retail Xbox One game, and the offer is good for our Xbox One system bundles, too – so if you want to pick up the Xbox One Madden NFL 15 Bundle or Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle, you’re getting another free game of your choice priced at $59.99 or lower on top of the bundled game.

Here’s the fine print: Offer valid September 7-September 13, 2014 at participating U.S. retailers with purchase of Xbox One, Xbox One with Kinect, Xbox One Madden NFL 15 bundle, or Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 bundle. Free game must be a new, disc-based game for Xbox One, maximum retail value $59.99. Not valid for pre-order games. Limit one free game per eligible Xbox One purchase. Cannot be combined with other offers. Refurbished consoles or used games not included. See your local retailer for details.

    In 3 months, Destiny is gonna be In the 10 dollar bin used.

    • Professor Oak

      doubt it

    • evilfangs .

      Good luck, it’s publisher is Activision. A publish which is still selling cod4 for £15 even though the game is over 5 years old.

      • GamerResentment

        Activision has no say over the price of used disks which is what Jimmy was referring to.

  • kingcrusher

    People need to quit their whining. I mean really, anytime you buy technology right out of the gate you pay more and get less. It’s always been that way, always will be. I bought mine and got no game with it, no incentive, but I”m not complaining because I knew exactly what I was buying, and wanted it right then, not later.

    I think it’s great they are offering free games, the more systems they sell, the more companies will want to make games for it. Besides, the games we get for being Gold have been really good, and those are free. I like it.

    • sony :-(

      Agree with you.
      I brought the Titanfall bundle, which I thought was great, but then literally 4 weeks later the Titanfall bundle was being offered with Forza5 for free, then another 4 weeks later it was COD:Ghosts + Forza5 with the Titanfall bundle for the same price. Felt gutted, but that’s just the nature of buying something, you pick ya moment and go for it… there’s usually going to be a better deal at some point.
      Could I ask people out there this question… now we have free games every month do you have a backlog of games you haven’t played? I can’t grumble about not having games anymore… it’s rapidly getting like my Steam collection… loads of games I’ve played for 30 minutes or haven’t even looked at!
      Although having said that… would be nice to get some credit on me account, cheeky though that is ;)

  • Pearson Smith

    Don’t mind being an early adopter. The box has improved my entertainment system. Soon, I’ll get rid of my 360 and have less clutter once Halo releases.

    • Praytoseedeath

      Rid of 360? Blaspheme.

  • random2win

    They could’ve offered this to everyone if they really wanted to. Like download one of these games from the marketplace for free or something.

  • DerpieDutch

    Ah finally something for the europeans that stuck with MS trough this difficult times. What? US only like always? Ok. Back to my ps4 again.

    • CoD Master

      Yeah, go back to your indies.

      • DerpieDutch

        Yes this months games are a bit dissapointing. But i am still having fun with Road not Taken. Driveclub is up next month i think. Still, if you are european there is absolutely no reason to choose MS. Unless you like being mocked by the company that takes your money. Pay more get less and à free slap in the face is MS motto in europe it seems.

        • CoD Master

          Yeah, go enjoy your demo.

          • DerpieDutch

            Thanks mate. Normally CoD fans say horrible things about my mother. But you seem ok. Cheers.

          • CoD Master

            Lol.

  • GamerResentment

    Does anyone know if this deal is good if I preorder the COD console? I just like the design.

    • CoD Master

      Its pretty good, if you can, go go go go for it, mate! What the hell questions are you doing? (in a friendly way).

      • GamerResentment

        I don’t get what your question was asking, haven’t been sleeping much and have probably lost brain cells haha sorry!

    • Michael Burden

      No since the console has to be purchased next week to be eligible, not in November.

      • GamerResentment

        Ok. Was kinda hoping if I paid for it all or something before hand. Darn :/
        I’m sure a promotion will pop up again at it’s launch anyways.

  • Mikael Soltaniha

    I understand that Microsoft is a US-based company, but it’s got like.. divisions in almost all countries. Why limit such things as US only? I mean, what was so important to do that you delayed the Xbox One in many European countries? Localization? What?! This is quite the opposite of the work you told people you were doing!!!

    • DerpieDutch

      Xbox one is released in tier 2 country’s today. Not even a tweet is spent on the dirty peasants.

      • Mikael Soltaniha

        I’ll say this much, I’m a PC gamer because of the whole 1080p/60FPS fiasco.. I’m sorry, but a game HAS to be 60FPS and above for me to be able to play it and enjoy it. The input lag becomes too obvious, but consoles have their good exclusives which makes them still relevant.. so “peasants”.. let’s try to avoid that word, yeah?

      • evilfangs .

        Go look at pictures of their Japan, launch. Killed it lmao.

  • NastySplitter

    Best Buy has Titanfall on sail for $49.99. All you suckers got screwed for paying $59.99 day 1.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Yep got screwed paying $10 more to play the game for 6 months. Hell can’t even rent it for one month for that price. SMH Some people.

      • CoD Master

        Oh snap! :)

    • Digiadam

      Turn in your humanity card. You apparently are lower than human. Lol

    • Praytoseedeath

      Umm I’d rather of had it the last 6 months then Of waited this long like a hobo…

  • Gazmaster3D

    I bought a multipack of Walkers the other day for £3. Today I see you can get 3 for the price of 1!!! I’m writing a strongly worded email to Gary Liniker about this “slap in the face” to us loyal customers!!!

  • De Go

    At Target you can get this bundle with any game, EXCEPT DESTINY! I just checked at the store by my house. The lady behind the electronics counter showed me the Target ad from corporate. *valid for all games except Destiny

  • red2k

    Puerto Rico qualify as state o USA in this promotion?

    • Professor Oak

      Puerto Rico isn’t a State…. It is A US Territory if I am correct. So unless the deal includes the US AND its territories, no, you will not receive the deal

      • red2k

        I know Puerto Rico isn’t a state by the constitution but in the promotions in many cases is calificated as USA. I will try figth this deal in the local store’s.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      It actually doesn’t state that it has to be a USA state but rather it says “at participating US retailers”. Check your local stores and see if they are participating.

  • Daniel Gaines Jr

    Free Madden to early adopters would be nice. I Do not feel screwed over, but a free game for early Adopting, helping xbox support trouble shoot issues, and basically being a beta tester is not a lot to ask. At least let me in the preview program, was in it on the 360 so do not know why they did not transfer to new system.

    • Moritz Aschenbrenner

      Give me your GT and I’ll invite you.

      • Daniel Gaines Jr

        FamedDanThaMan

        • Daniel Gaines Jr

          and thanks.

    • Brad

      That’s the least Microsoft SHOULD do. When Nintendo had to lower the price of 3DS due to poor sales (Just like XB1). They gave existing customers a FREE game. Instead of coming up with deals that don’t sell, they should reward those that were stup… I mean loyal enough to overpay for XB1.

      That goes a long way towards rebuilding their damaged brand with consumers who have yet to move to next gen. Why would anyone spend money on a MS console when chances are in 30 days (or less) it will be even less.

      • Professor Oak

        Actually, they gave us 20 games. 10 NES and 10 GBA. Also, there was no price drop on the Xbox One. They just made a new bundle without the Kinect. Microsoft owes you nothing, you got exactly what you paid for. The 3DS however, actually had a price drop, from $250 to $170 I believe

  • Digiadam

    Hmm…let’s see here…Destiny for the xb1 is 69.99…..yet the promotion limits you to a max price of 59.99.

    Proof read Larry. Do it. Lol

    • Professor Oak

      Destiny for Xbox One is $60, same price as Xbox 360…

      • Digiadam

        According to my local EBGAMES and walmart…..it’s 69.99.

        Edit: you are wrong. I just double checked both stores…..it’s 69.99.

        • Jeff Threat

          its $59.99

          • Digiadam

            No it is not. Go to EBGAMES dot ca and walmart dot ca they clearly say 69.99.

            Again I am right, you guys are wrong.

          • Jeff Threat

            Nope. you are wrong, this is for US retailers. Destiny in US is 59.99

          • Digiadam

            And yet my canadian retailers say otherwise. Sry but I would take their word over some unknown on the web.

          • Jeff Threat

            yes, CANADA! this is for US, a price for US game is $59.99, check your sources. maybe if you goto gamestop, walmart dot com, you sill see a price difference.

          • Reece Hunt

            They’re not saying the US price dumbass, digiadam clearly states that it is the Canadian price. So why are you saying that digiadam is wrong?

          • Professor Oak

            I’m not saying Digiadam is wrong, I’m saying Canada is wrong

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Digiadam is stating that the deal does not include Destiny because the deal states for game up to $59.99 but Destiny in Canada is $69.99. BUT the deal is in the US Only so the price of tea in China has nothing to do with this deal.

            There is that spelled out for you well enough?

          • CoD Master

            And still this promotion is not for you, since its US only.

        • Professor Oak

          EB Games, that means you are from Canada, I don’t know why your local stores would charge an extra $10, Here in the US, they have to same price, as should everywhere else….

          • Digiadam

            If thats the case trust me I will raise holy hell on them.

          • Professor Oak

            Go ahead. Here in the US, they are the same price

        • PANDA PUNISHER

          Ok, it’s $59.99 in the U.S. It’s $69.99 in Canada. Can we move past this now?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      What part of “at participating US retailers” did you not understand?

  • Miroku Asakura

    Only USA sucks xD i will buy my xbox one tomorrow and i am not from US -.-

    • Matt

      Its also in Canada if by any chance you are here.

      • Miroku Asakura

        sadly no, i am from Mèxico =(

  • Michelle Lee (angelsimaren)

    Does this work for Amazon?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      AT (where it will be)
      PARTICIPATING (companies can choose to partake or not)
      RETAILERS (companies that sell to the public)

  • CoD Master

    Hey guys, do you think that they will do a Back to School sale?

    • Brad

      At this rate Microsoft will do a back to school sale, a because it’s raining sale… a hey it’s Thursday sale… anything they can in order to come close to Wii-U sales.

    • http://www.kevin-fell.co.uk/ Kevin Fell

      I’m pretty sure they’ll be a back to school sale starting tonight / tomorrow.

      • CoD Master

        I hope so too. :)

  • Fingleberries

    This is to catch the Destiny rush … They can’t officially bundle Destiny with Xbox one.

    But, hey, if you just happen to use this offer and pick up Destiny (the game, not the fragrance) then what a coinkydink. :-)

  • http://3guys1movie.com/ 3guys1movie

    Adopt Day One pay an extra $100 for Kinect that 50% of the people don’t want and get no game. #SuckeredAgain Thanks MSFT :-)

    • Professor Oak

      You could have waited…

  • Brondey Tang

    Should give all xbox one Day One edition owner a free $59.99 digital game download

    • Professor Oak

      Why, you got what you paid for

      • Brondey Tang

        This is the promotion and marketing tactics to get more market share on future product to show that we do care any of our customers no matter when you support us. Cause as a company is not good for customers “wait” for your products until price drop or special promotion to give you the money.

      • Brondey Tang

        It’s call Loyal Customers Appreciation

        • Professor Oak

          Actually, it’s called Entitlement

  • Praytoseedeath

    Choose Diablo 3 or Titanfall.
