    Users With Malfunctioning Xbox Ones Compensated With Free Game

    Select from Ryse, Zoo Tycoon, Forza 5, or Dead Rising 3.

    [​IMG]

    Microsoft is offering a free first-party game to some Xbox One users affected by hardware problems. Microsoft said in a statement, "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."

    A digital copy of the selectable games -- you'd receive one copy of Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, or Zoo Tycoon -- will still play on a machine with a malfunctioning disc drive, of course. In addition, Microsoft is replacing hardware at a faster rate than usual with its advance exchange program; Microsoft is sending replacement units before users mail out their faulty machines for repair.

    If you're having troubles with your Xbox One, consult the Xbox One Problems wiki page, or call 1-800-4-MYXBOX for support.

      its funny you say that, yet you dont like when i quote.

      so what your saying simply is that if you dont like it do one.

      ok so battletard dont like the ps4/xbx1..... does your point apply??

      thats the message here, you and others here are found bashing a system like a darn fanboy and then you say the above.

      i think i just wet my self laughing

      but this place is claiming to be a GAMING SITE, yet its littered with fools like you.

      as darkraven put it perfectly, ill agree on his statement.

      IF YOU DONT LIKE IT THEN SHUT THE FECK UP.... ohhh wait you dont, hence my quoting 99.999% of the fanboys BS.

      look at you on the graphic wagon, i can bet 100% youll soon be changing your story when the xbx1/ps4 get games with better graphics.

      is that a ban hammer, threat, you have a co admin account, yet we see people saying if you dont like it go away.

      but is this not a gaming forum, so why cant the ones be told that are found defending a system, then slating another, claiming sh1t like 500Gb HDD is sh1t, yet make out 32GB + additional drives to be better??

      clear view matey, this forum is littered with fanboys and when the point is made we get the GTFO attitude.

      then you might as well make this a fanboy forum if you dont like gamers pointing out the BS fanboys.

      and then we wonder why this site is stale, dead, 2 generations ago it was stiving, now its like a wounded dog trying to be something its not.

      2 generations ago, you were still here posting the same stuff, and there was still fanboys here trolling away attacking systems and such.

      The only thing that has changed big time is 'pirate' factor, that make forums like this very active, 2 generations ago it was all gamecube, xbox, ps2, psp, we had special forums setup just homebrew developers to post in regard to their projects, the people loved to install.

      There was at least one new homebrew release, update per day, now you lucky to see one in a month, except for webman being updated by dean on ps3, there is nothing happening.

      The scene is not like it used to be, it is not open and free like it used to be either, 2 generations ago you could walk into any flea market, buy a burned game, get a modchip installed, or chat with friends about it openly.

      Now you get raid, arrrest, throw in jail, your paypal funds seized, your goods like r4's, jailbreak devices grabbed at the border, you talk about it online you get banned, you go online with your console it gets banned.

      All the old sites have died off, look at xbox-scene, the forums don't even work anymore, and when they do what do you find on there about maybe dozen users lurking, noone posting.

      Only old site active these days is GBATemp and that is many thanks to the new pirate device Gateway which makes up 90% of their inbound traffic, but that is turning into a whining bunch of idoits as Nintendo blocked it in all new devices and so far no way around it, even the Gateway clones don't offer any hope.

      That is the truth, maybe this new generation will generate some fresh ideas, and ways, but currently the hottest thread in next-gen is the fact a man removed his sleeping wife's clothes online via PS4 Twitch feature.

      That is the current generation, a bunch of 12 year old looking online for some quick cheats or free online access or crappy porn.

      On the download size VS disk version size thing, a trick companies have come up with recently is to put multiple copies of the same data on the disk. This helps with seek times on the drive but at the cost of disk space. Not a problem with BD disks since they can be up to 50GB's and the disk will cost the same either way so might as well use the space to speed up load times.

      A digital download on the other hand wouldn't need this trick since seek times on a hard drive are much faster than an optical drive.

      They could also be down sampling the movies and audio too, but I would hope not... As if I needed yet another reason to never do digital downloads.

      Edit: I shouldn't say I never buy digital downloads... I should qualify that with I refuse to spend full price on games (50-60 dollars) for something I may not be able to play in the future, but if something looks good and it's in the 3-10 dollar range sure why not... lol

      Also the whole hard drive thing got me thinking about PC's VS Console's again and one of the advantages consoles had over PC's was that they where cheaper and easier to use. Now with the advent of stuffing hard drives in consoles, digital downloads, tons of patches, it seems like consoles are giving up part of the advantage they enjoyed in the past.

      Reminds me of that saying... You can pick 2 out of 3.

      1. Fast
      2. Reliable
      3. Cheap

      Speaking about MISINFORMED information you should see some of Diztructor's posts.... lol I have one favorited where he claims that some PSP games outsold DS hardware.... Please note that this was late in the PSP's and DS's life cycle, so yeah it never happened...

      But don't worry I am sure if you stick around long enough you will see exactly who is agreeing with you, sometimes he is right but largely he is around for entertainment purposes.

      As for download sizes, i doubt that much is downscaled.

      Look at PS3.

      Download sizes on PS3:
      - Metal Gear Risng.. Nearly 20.GB
      - Battlefield 3 on PS3.. Nearly 20.GB.
      And many others at 15-20.GB etc..

      No wonder why my 750.GB gets filled up fast, and that i recently had to delete 200.GB.
      When i struggle with 750.GB on PS3, 500.GB is nothing on Xbone and PS4.. for me.

      I'm a big time game purchaser deluxe, and buy new retail games almost every day of the week on average. This make 500.GB with install be nothing.
      When i switch a game, i wont sit 5 hours and wait for a game to install.

      This is why the majority have to be installed at the same time. Just insert a disc, and boot.
      Xbone is useless for me until MS release a 2.TB version. Same for PS4 since i buy so much.

      I do not really care how you or anyone else feels about any console, in fact talk all the shit you want about any console this is a discussion forum after all. I said what I said to whatever his name is due to the fact he seemed to hate it here.

      If you or anyone else has issues with the way this site is right now write up a list of everything that you think needs improvement and PM it to me and I will see what I can do.

      To be clear what console is this site supposedly fanboys of?

      I'm pretty sure Dizzy's list will read like this:

      Eliminate ads.
      No posting bad or negative news about anything.
      Ban all Nintendo talk.
      Ban all users except for himself and Miller420, PieMan, xTone, kcvfr400, mattias800, hotd34me, wrathchild.

      Well damn that's pretty shitty... I mean OK if a person has an issue and gets the console fixed or replaced that's cool.

      But if on the other hand they release a press statement like this and say "Hey where going the extra mile here! You get a free game for the issue!" and then do not actually do it... That part is bad.

      That sounds like a you problem...

      Joining a gaming forum or reading a gaming forum and saying "full of fanboys!!!" is kind of like saying "OMG FIRE HOT!!!"

      If you wanted a non fanboy discussion there are litterally thousands of forums on the internet... None of them gaming related though, you wont find a gaming web page with no fanboys, that's like looking for a porn site with no porn.

      Dizzzy have quite a past on CD32 console. (The Big 6) Collection.

      Damn he looks fat in these games.

      Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk
      Crystal Kingdom Dizzy
      Fantastic Dizzy (in an enhanced AGA version)
      Treasure Island Dizzy
      Spellbound Dizzy
      Magicland Dizzy

      Here is a review of the Dizzy collection.

      http://amr.abime.net/review_48328

      I own this on CD32 myself, but didn't recognise Dizzy back then due to his body shape, which clearly was not in shape. ;)

      feel free to check out my profiles (from my sig), i have every single game that is listed in them many of them special / limited editions and i have collections just as large for all previous gens so i certainly dont come into the fanboy category, no matter what our resident troll might claim.

      oh and the reason for bad news on ps4 and xbone recently is because they just launched, look back to when wii u launched and there was bad news about that too, same for vita / 3ds.

      The first year of sales on the 3DS sucked big time, that was back when I thought the Vita was going to be doing pretty good in the market. I honestly thought Sony had a real chance capture 50%+ of the market at that time. 2 years down the line and I can't really see the Vita doing anything but doing a great imitation of a zombie.

      Shows how things can change over time.

      I still am kinda shocked over the Vita, it fixes almost every complaint I had about the PSP in the hardware. More software support is probably the only thing keeping it from selling.

      Speaking about weird sales, the local Walmart near me had a giant display of those $99 2DS systems... They where half gone at 11AM Thanksgiving (yesterday) so they probably sold 100 of the things in a few hours. I suspect you will see some crazy 2DS sales numbers soon. I didn't think the 2DS would sell like that at all. I knew there would be a market but damn!
