Pre-Order or buy Xbox One and get FIFA 14, 3 months Xbox Live Gold membership and a €20 gift card code for your Xbox Live account. Customers will receive an email from Microsoft containing promotional codes and usage instructions.
How about US?
I can't say that I'm not more than moderately annoyed that Europe is getting a full real title with their system launch.
I suspect the Xbox One's preorders in Europe are not very good because Microsoft has quite a few offerings with the X1 in Europe. Microsoft normally does not offer anything for free.
The US gets a whole different experience with the Xbox One then we get it Europe (if it is anything close to what it was with the Xbox 360). I would gladly switch Fifa to get that same experience.
F U Microsoft. I want a free game too.
Hang on I thought you get 12 months of live when you buy and Xbox one?
Yes your right, you do, just like you get 12 months of ps plus when you buy a PS4
Unfortunately you do not get a free year of xbox live gold with the purchase of the Day One or standard edition pre-ordered Xbox One. I thought the same at one point due to an article on this site, but researched a bit and this is not the case. The nail in the coffin that you don't get a free year was a response from Xbox Support on Twitter where some one asked this very question only to be told it does not in fact come with a free year of xbox live gold.
I know it doesnt, you should have taken my post with a healthy dose of sarcasm.
Wtf Im in the u.s. , NYC specifically I want free stuff. I payed almost 50$ in tax . give us forza at least for the day one purchasers.
You do realise that tax is collected by the government not Microsoft?
Lol.... It is?
Did I say Ms charges the tax lol
even at $550, europeans are still paying on average 90 euro ($121) more than you for your console... could be why europeans are getting the extra stuff... also just to point out this offer isn't for everyone just those lucky ones who receive an email
MS must really be feeling pressured by ps4 in EU.
I think this is begging, People know the EU pre-orders of the XBONE are low but with M$ trying to beg people to buy it... I'm not going to say anything...
This had to be done, otherwise the Xbox One doesn't look like a good value proposition when compared to the PS4 Mega Bundle, which is the same price in Europe. Both included the console, camera and one game, but the PS4 included an additional controller and more powerful hardware inside. I think the €20 and free Gold membership is an attempt to counter this clear advantage that the PS4 had.
How can I get this email?
