Microsoft offer free game for Xbox One Faulty Disc Drives

Microsoft has said that Xbox One owners who have experienced faulty hardware will be offered a free digital copy to choose from out of four titles. Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome or Zoo Tycoon will all be made available as compensation for the issues users have experienced.

Microsoft provided a statement to Polygon, stating the following,  “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.”

The faults were acknowledges by Microsoft yesterday where they claimed only a very small number of customers had received faulty units. This gesture by Microsoft will at least allow users who received a faulty console something to play while they await their replacement console.
