Xbox One with free game bonus returns at Microsoft (Elite back in stock)


For those who missed Black Friday…

If you missed buying an Xbox One over the Black Friday weekend because you were busy cooking up a meal for 40 of your clan members, a new offer has turned up at the Microsoft Store. It’s a today-only deal, where Microsoft will give you a free game of your choice (along with a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity).

Black Friday saw the Xbox One Elite fly off the shelves within the first few hours of it being offered, but now the Elite is back in stock and the same bonus offer applies which makes this a very good deal if you’ve been holding out for that particular console.

The games included for free are of a wider variety vs. the four older freebie offered on Black Friday. Once you’ve hit “Add to Cart” at the Microsoft Store, you’ll be prompted for a full price three-month Xbox Live Membership. After you inevitably click “no thanks” you’ll get a list of 24 options. For the most part, they’re decent games, but we think these are the best titles to get:

  • Rainbow Six: Siege (released Tuesday)
  • Just Cause 3 (released Tuesday)
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Fallout 4
  • Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
  • CoD Black Ops III
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Forza Motorsport 6

Accompanying these recent releases includes AC Unity, which Microsoft has a seemingly endless supply of (yes, it’s a digital download).

This deal is valid only on December 3 during Microsoft’s 12 days of Xmas sale. The offer is not as strong as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but we can safely assume that kind of deal won’t get repeated until much later in 2016.
