The perks of being an employee of Microsoft.
How does this benefit us, how bout this I work in game and for free I can take home any console or game. For as long I want. Game Leeds
so this article is saying that if you want discounts on xbox titles you have to look for a job at microsoft 0_o
LMAO.....Pretty much. This is a stupid article cause it doesn't benefit us at all.
BMX..... 8 yeas late bud ;)
@BMX ... It is safe to come out from under the rock. Sony won't bite you.
Or make friends with people who work for MS so they can get you the hook-up.
I wouldn't even buy a Xbox with a discount.
I am tired of microsoft bullshit.
As they should. This makes sense.
I had the pleasure of going to the EA HQ a few years ago, and they had a store at the front of the building with all their games in there for a paltry $5 each. They also had all kinds of EA branded merchandise for crazy cheap. It makes total sense to do this for their employees.
why... why is this even news? Alot of businesses give employees discounts.
lol. Well said. I am not sure why this is even any news as you said.. Smh weird.
Is this for exclusives only, and does this apply to people who work in MS stores? If so, I may know someone :-D
if i remember correctly its only exclusives. i got a uncle that works for Microsoft instead of getting the game for 60$ i got it for 30$ and almost 2 weeks early. i did this with halo odsd, and reach
Doesn't playing a game early get you banned? Were you playing offline or is there something on the disk that lets them know it's an employee copy? Must be nice btw.
I played offline there was no point to play online wouldn't find a match
If I got that discount, I'd buy a ton of games then sell them all on eBay.
They employees get white Xbox one consoles. I think I would want that over anything else. And every Xbox one exclusive dirt cheap.
Frankly they shouldn't have to pay anything. Some people have busted their balls working on the xbone and ps4, but it's the PR that reaps all the rewards. I think free gear is the very least they deserve.
This is for everyone that works for MS. Even people that have nothing to do with the Xbox Division.
"This just in: Employees of a company get a discount, stuns no one. More at 11." That's exactly what this article is.
No surprise here. Getting a Free PS4 and Xbox One for working in the retail games industry. Literally lost my shit when I found out.
GS manager i presume. Not gonna lie that has to be the best gift anyone can get. Both consoles and a ton of extras.
Nothing new I often got 360 games from former colleagues that moved MS for a discounted price. Every company does that.
and if you're a steam employee , you have access to all the games put on steam . woop-t-doo
Interesting. My brothers wife, was given allowance which was 400 a year. $75 for a new system and $15 dollars For a game or controller. I'm not sure what she did for Microsoft. But interesting, wonder if it's changed
They get a discount on the weaker console software, and the regular customer still gets shafted. Awesome!
question is this discount for digital or hardcopy?
A friend of mine works for EA, I pay him 20 bucks a game
