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.
Very classy of Microsoft. On the other end(Playstation), I heard that people who were having problems were only given $10 PSN when asking for it and that they had to wait weeks in order to get their replacement sent if not going to Sony directly.
