Remember those select people who brought home their shiny new Xbox Ones, only to find out that their consoles made crunching noises and don't read discs? I'd be pissed if it happened to me, but it appears as if Microsoft is making amends for those who are affected.

According to Polygon, not only is Microsoft offering to replace the console, but they're also offering up a free digital game, with the choice of Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome or Zoo Tycoon. Since this hardware failure only messes with the disc drive, people can play these digital games without delay. So if this is happening to you, check or email or file a report as soon as possible.

If I may make a suggestion -- go for Dead Rising 3, unless you really like racing games, in which case go for Forza.

The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Microsoft might be delusional about Xbox One

Microsoft doesn't necessarily claim Xbox One has the best exclusives, but a recently deleted tweet from the company did seem to suggest as much. Apparently "everyone else says so" -- which is, um, an interesting statemen...more
