The Xbox One Celebrates Its First Birthday, Microsoft Gives Out Free Games, Movies
Henry Reeve / 3 years ago
It’s hard to believe that the Xbox One has been here for an entire year so far, but here we are.
Microsoft is celebrating the first birthday of its now current generation console by providing early adopters with some free stuff, including movies, themes, games and much more. The Xbox One turns one on November 22, with Microsoft giving away the following digital goods:
- A Year One Gamer Picture
- New Xbox One backgrounds: A special Year One background as well as an exclusive Day One background for those who unlocked the Day One achievement
- A Year One background image
- A free rental of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
- A free rental of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Godsmovie and a sampler pack of Dragon Ball Z TV episodes (U.S. and Canada only)
In order to get those free goods, you’ll have to have purchased your Xbox One before November 11, 2014, in one of the Xbox One’s 13 launch markets. You’ll also need to be at least 17 years old, and have over 10 hours of Xbox One usage, which shouldn’t be too hard.
The company is also giving out some other physical goods to Xbox One fans, including Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Sunset Overdrive Xbox One bundles, a Forza Horizon 2 Limited Edition Casio G-Shock watch and retail copies of Killer Instinct Season 1. More digital goods are being given away too, with Xbox Live subscriptions, copies of Dance Central Spotlight and in-game goods for games like Grand Theft Auto 5, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Peggle 2 and more.
