Microsoft giving away free Xbox One bundle to those with high Gamerscores

Microsoft giving away free Xbox One bundle to those with high Gamerscores

Do you want a free Xbox One? Microsoft is apparently sending out the Xbox One consoles for free. With the console, lucky winners are getting Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse Son of Rome, Zoo Tycoon, and Killer Instinct. On top of that, 12 month subscriptions for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Music also come with the package.

Here’s the catch though, not everyone will be able to get one. Of course you should know that by now, nothing is free in this life, well, except this. Some fans have been reporting that they have received emails from Microsoft stating they won an Xbox One and some games to go along with it.

So why is Microsoft doing this? It turns out that Microsoft is hand picking these lucky winners because of their loyalty to Xbox. According to the official Xbox Live twitter account, these lucky winners are selected because of certain factors, which is the number of Gamerscore a user has, Xbox Live tenure, and how many years the user has had an Xbox account for (in some instances).

Game Informer has apparently cracked Microsoft’s code, and they state, “…it seems that the prizes started kicking in if you are “Master” level in the Xbox Rewards program. This requires 75,000 Gamerscore and doesn’t consider length of Xbox Live membership.”

Did you get an email regarding this? Comment below if you won anything!
