Microsoft Free Game to Defective Xbox One Owners


Not every Xbox One worked on day one – many people were complaining about disc drive failures and DOA issues. Microsoft wants to make things right though for anyone that is experiencing the disc drive issue by giving them a new digital copy of one of the launch titles so they can get to gaming despite the disc failure.

“While a replacement console is on its way, we want to ensure our advance exchange customers can stay in the game. We will provide each of them with a free digital download of one of the launch titles published by Microsoft Studios.”

The games they are allowing defective Xbox One owners to download are Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome or Zoo Tycoon. This is actually a nice gesture by Microsoft and it would be nice if Sony did something similar for people experiencing the line of death.
