Early Xbox One X buyers getting free 4K movie from Microsoft

Microsoft is giving out a free gift to early adopters who were among the first to pick up the new Xbox One X. As first reported by a Reddit user going by the name of ste1ing, Microsoft is messaging Xbox One X owners with a free download code for The Lego Batman Movie in 4K. Says Microsoft:

Congratulations! As one of the first Xbox One X customers you were selected to receive a free download of The Lego Batman Movie to enjoy in 4k UHD, courtesy of Microsoft Movies & TV.

A number of commenters have also reported receiving the message, but there are quite a few who haven't as well. It's likely that codes are rolling out in waves, but, other than being "one of the first Xbox One X customers," it's unclear what the exact criteria are for receiving a code. What is clear is that it doesn't seem to matter where you bought your console.

Still, a free movie is a nice little bonus for anyone willing to pony up for the Xbox One X early. And as a 4K title with HDR, The Lego Batman Movie is a solid way to show off what are two of the console's highlight features.

Have you received the free movie offer from Microsoft yet?
