. Some Xbox One consoles have damaged game discs inserted into the drive slot, while the PS4 console has suffered from what is being called the
Blue Light of Death
Microsoft is trying to make it up to gamers who purchased Xbox One consoles that had hardware issues by giving them a free download code for a game. Anyone who purchased a faulty Xbox One console will be able to get a free game from four choices according to
The four choices include
Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome
. The games are being offered as a free download, so even machines suffering from a defective optical drive will be able to play the games.
"While a replacement console is on its way, we want to ensure our advance exchange customers can stay in the game," a statement from Microsoft said. "We will provide each of them with a free digital download of one of the launch titles published by Microsoft Studios."
Microsoft continues to maintain that there were issues with a very small number of consoles so far. Microsoft has also promised to "take care" of customers that purchase faulty consoles.

Do you know what cross shipping is?
It requires you to put up a security deposit equivalent to the cost of a brand new console.
Sure they will ship you a refurbished console to replace your brand new one (be sure the replacement comes with the same warranty as the new one - refurbs usually get a 90 day warranty) IF you have ANOTHER $500 to tie up as a security deposit.

Its thick with the BS of DT lately isnt it.
I find it funny the people complaining are ones that aren't buying the console.
