Microsoft will give a free digital game to those whose Xbox One has gone on the blink,, allowing them to get some gaming in even without a functioning optical drive.
The news comes via an email from a Microsoft support representative published by Polygon.
“While a replacement console is on its way, we want to ensure our advance exchange customers can stay in the game. We will provide each of them with a free digital download of one of the launch titles published by Microsoft Studios,” the representative said.
According to Eurogamer, users can choose between Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon.
Microsoft has confirmed that a very small number of Xbox One units are experiencing hardware problems related to the optical drive, and promised to “take care” of those affected.
