If you were thinking about getting an Xbox One soon, you might find this upcoming deal pretty enticing.
Microsoft has announced a new promotion that will allow any US customer who buys an Xbox One from “participating retailers” (no real specificity regarding what those retailers are) during the week of September 7th-13th to also get a free retail game of their choice. Whether you want to start with a launch title like Ryse: Son of Rome, or Destiny which comes out next week.
The deal applies to both Xbox One with or without Kinect, the Madden NFL 15 bundle and the Forza Motorsport 5 bundle. In order to get your free game, it must be brand new (not pre-owned or refurbished) and cannot be used for a pre-order.
Given the timing, the deal will likely be used by most to get a copy of Destiny so they can join in with friends on the MMO-shooter. For more on that, check out our impressions of the game’s beta and our thoughts on how the game’s story could make or break the game.
