Microsoft Giving out Xbox Ones, Games via Email


Surprised gamers woke up this morning to find an email in their inbox stating they were set to be recipients of anything ranging from Xbox One consoles (and games!) to free complete copies of the rebooted Killer Instinct. Microsoft states to Game Informer the decision was made based on a variety of factors, from tenure to Gamerscore.

In the interest of full disclosure, my inbox was hit with the full version of Killer Instinct. The image above comes from said email.

In other words, that email which offers you a free Xbox One? Chances are – at least today – it’s 100% real. Follow the instructions (email should be from xbox [at] and claim your system or games!
