Microsoft is offering Xbox Live members with more exciting rewards, and bonus items if they pre-order some of the popular gaming titles through the Microsoft Store ahead of their official launch.
The company announced that Xbox Live Reward members can earn 15,000 credits, which is equal to $15, if they pre-order any game for Xbox 360 or Xbox One, and get it shipped through the online Microsoft Store during the holiday season. It's not just for Xbox Live Rewards members though, anyone who pre-orders a game from Microsoft Store will get a $10 gift card in Store or $10 on Xbox Live; the money can then be used to purchase games, map packs, and other items from the app stores.
The only catch here is that you can only purchase up to three gaming titles, not more than that. For Xbox Live Rewards members, the attractive part is they get 5,000 extra reward credits per game compared to non-rewards members (that's up to $45 in gift cards!).
In addition, the company is offering more exclusive items for those gamers who will pre-order the Halo: Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive. With Halo: Master Chief collection, users will get a "My Other Car is a Warthog” throwback license plate frame, a Master Chief window decal and an exclusive “Boom” Skull that unlocks 2x explosion physics for the Halo 2: Anniversary campaign."
As for Sunset Overdrive, gamers will get "exclusive melee weapons Acordes de la Muerte and The Hangover as an added bonus to the Day One Edition." Additionally, they'll be able to get their hands on the exclusive white controller holder upon Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle pre-order.
Just head over to the Xbox Rewards website to get more information about how to join the new program. Just make sure you're using the login credentials associated with the Xbox account.
This is a great deal, and another catch to attract more gamers towards Xbox Live. If you are still on the fence, Microsoft allows users to trade-in their existing consoles and get the new Xbox One.
