After Microsoft kind of dominated the news about their backward compatibility during E3 last week, they will try to continue capitalizing on that news with a new Xbox One special. Starting this past Sunday, Microsoft will be offering a limited-time promotion that will allow you to get a free game with any purchase of an Xbox One.
On Sunday, June 21st, which runs through June 27th, everyone who buys either the 500GB or 1TB model of the Xbox One will get a free Xbox One game. Now, this does include the free game bundles, the newest one for the 1TB bundle includes Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The other caveat for the deal is that the game has to be a physical copy, does not apply to digital copies or upcoming releases. So no putting it toward a pre-order, which is a bummer but I get the point. Microsoft will be running this promotion for a week, so if you have been holding out now is a good time to pick one up.
Microsoft has received a bit a positive praise from their E3 presentation last week and is intending to ride that wave with this current promotion. Microsoft is offering backward compatibility, a permanent $350 price and a new 1TB model shows that Microsoft is pushing the market to see their value. We shall see how it plays out.
