PostSubject: Xbox Day One Edition Offer!   Tue Jun 11, 2013 6:46 pm



Following the pricing and release window announcement, Microsoft has detailed a limited “Day One Edition” Xbox One.

Available as a reward for pre-ordering the system at participating retailers are a number of physical and digital bonuses, including a special achievement.

Yeah, you read that right. They’re giving away achievements for pre-ordering hardware now.

Anyway, pre-order and you’ll get a limited edition Xbox One Day One branded controller, as well as the following digital goodies:
• Commemorative Day One Achievement
• Exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome multiplayer map and sword with bonus attributes
• Four cars tuned to the top of their class for Forza Motorsport 5
• Exclusive sporting equipment for use in Kinect Sports Rivals
• Exclusive Dead Rising 3 Frank West and Chuck Greene Tribute Packs with bonus attributes

So most of that looks cool, but am I overreacting, or is Microsoft devaluing achievements with stuff like this?

Xbox One is out in November for $499 in North America, €499 in Europe, and £429 in UK

Dead Rising 3 looks out of this world.

They did say that the Achievement system is going to be more "Organic".

I just can't justify $500 for an achievement and digital content for games I may not even play....

There's only one game that will make me go weak at the knees and that's Gears.
But on saying that Dead Rising does look pretty frikkin awesome! Very Happy
Why are people moaning and bitching that they are giving away an achievement for pre-ordering?!
So what?! It's just a little novelty gift thing like a set of playing cards, it doesnt devalue the achievements you already have cause lets face it some of the achievements in some games are stupidly easy to get but you still got them. I think it's a cute idea Very Happy
