Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Giving Free Game To Xbox One Owners With Hardware Issues

Posted Nov 26, 2013

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced that the Xbox One owners that suffered hardware issues on the new console will be getting a free game.  The issue seems to be that the optical drive on the console does not work for some users. The games for the Xbox One can be downloaded so they do not have to wait for new hardware to show up.

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

It’s great to see Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) make things right for hardware issues.  If my Xbox One was having issues, I would be delighted to get a free game out of the ordeal.
