If you're in the market for a new Xbox One, you may want to wait until next week to make your purchase. Microsoft today announced a special Xbox One promotion where anyone who buys a console September 7-13 will get a free retail game of their choice. The promotion is open only in the US and is good at participating retailers, including GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Toys 'R Us, Amazon, and Wal-Mart, among others.

You might be thinking that this deal will only let you get a free Microsoft-published game or is limited in some way. But that's not the case. Microsoft says, "the sky's the limit" regarding your free game options. Pick up Destiny, Titanfall, Watch Dogs, Madden NFL 15, or anything else. Also, the deal is open for all Xbox One console bundles, meaning if you pick up the Madden NFL 15 bundle or the Forza Motorsport 5 bundle, you'll actually be getting two free games.

The only major limitations on the deal is that it's not good for preorder games, and it can't be combined with any other offers. In addition, refurbished Xbox One consoles and used games are not eligible.

The introduction of the Xbox One sales promotion comes as the busy holiday release season kicks off with Destiny next Tuesday. The Xbox One, at potentially around 5 million units sold, is lagging behind Sony's PlayStation 4, which has sold 10 million units to date.
