Most upcoming AAA games available for preorder in the Microsoft store now include a $10 gift card. This effectively brings the price of games down to $49.99

http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...oryID.67154000

Still don't understand why these deals aren't available for digital downloads.

From Major: "Need for Speed Rivals for Xbox One has been added to this week's Deals with Gold, at 50% off http://mjr.mn/XTwvDv "

Shows as $25 for me. I wonder if this is due to go on the EA Access soon??? I'd hate to spend the $25 now and have it go on EAA soon thereafter.

I don't see that and I have a year's subscription to EA Access, which shows clearly in my account's list of subscriptions. It shows up as $25 on the product page and $25 on the purchase dialog.

I can confirm that this deal will apply to the Madden bundle available at Target stores. I'm not sure about Best Buy or on-line sales.

This means that a brand new Xbox One, minus Kinect, will only cost you $280 when you factor in the 2 games (Madden+whatever, including Destiny).

Damn! That's a deal and a frickin' half! $180 worth of desirable stuff rolled in at regular price. It'd be a deal even if you tossed the Kinect.

The Microsoft store has some deals for Xbox Reward members. You can get $15 for pre-ordering through the Microsoft store for at least Sunset Overdrive and the Master chief collection.

If only they offered this deal selling the games via codes for digital download buyers. It'd be even more cost effective not having to ship anything.

Thank you.


I'm was unwillingly considering going digital only for Halo MCC (no sales anywhere) but this deal creates a buy 4 get one free scenario. I have exactly 8 must have retail games in queue.


Halo MCC
Sunset Overdrive
Dragon Age...
Etc.


Not a big fan of relying on the internet (guessing) on day 1 new game deliveries. Does MS ship early?

I can't get the 1500 points ($15 savings per game) when trying to purchase.


I assume you get notice of the $15 credit later, in the form of digital (boo, lame) currency only?

I was looking at picking another one up and was looking for a deal as well. How much cash back are they offering? I just looked at the site really quick and didn't see a mention of it.

If it's like what they've done lately, you'll get an email with the Xbox Live credit about 1 week after you receive the order.

So with Forza Horizon 2, for example, I got my $10 code about 1 week after receiving it in the mail that I then registered on the Xbox. I guess this is to prevent people from ordering, getting the code, then canceling the order?

I'm not sure how this $15 thing is working. But I prefer the $10 Xbox Live credit versus the microsoftstore.com credit since I don't shop that often at the website and the problem with the website credit (from what I remember) is that you can only apply one credit per order. so if you have a bunch of $10 codes, you can't apply them all.

The $15 is only if you are registered in the xbox rewards program. What they do is give you 15000 points which you can redeem for $15 on your xbox live account. According to the site you get 15000 points for each game you preorder. Tried looking for any fine print and didn't see any so it seems you get it for as many games as you preorder. If you are not registered in the rewards program you will get a $10 xbox gift card. It seems as they want more people to sign up for the rewards program so they are throwing an extra $5.


I was on the fence for Sunset Drive but I think I am going to take advantage of this. Assassins Creed is the other. The rest I plan on going digital with.
