Microsoft giving away free Xbox Games

Microsoft is giving away free Xbox games when you purchase a new Windows Phone 7 device.  Regardless if you purchase the phone through AT&T, T-Mobile, from or any other Windows Phone retailer you can claim your game.

Eligible models include the Samsung Focus, LG Quantum, HTC Surround, HTC HD7, and Dell Venue Pro.

The offer is valid on purchase made between December 17, 2010 and December 31, 2010. The game titles aren't too shabby and include:

  • Kinectimals
  • Kinect Joy Ride
  • Fable III
  • Halo Reach

To claim your game, you'll need to complete a redemption form that is available at and send it in along with a copy of your purchase reciept and a copy of the UPC code from your Windows Phone packaging.  You can find the full Terms and Conditions here.

It may not match Telus's offer to give you a free Xbox 360 gaming system, but it's still a very good offer on some very entertaining games.

Thanks goes out to Robert for the tip!

  • Oh sure, nothing for us who have been enjoying our phones for over a month. [sigh] ;)
  • Is there anything on the date that you buy it? I looked at the website and didn't see anything, I bought mine when the focus first came out, and i am thinking about trying it.
  • Actually it is there. Look into FAQ section of it.
  • CRAP! Lost my receipt!!!!!!!!!!!
  • re: jonharrell Uh, there is most certainly something on their website about the date. Click on "Terms and Conditions". It specifically states: Customer must purchase a Windows Phone 7 device from December 17th, 2010 through December 31st, 2010 to qualify.
  • this sucks i just bought my surround on the 15!!! damnit!!!!
  • all i have to say is freakin awesome, ill be picking my surround up before the end of the month and a copy of halo reach too
  • what about us unlucky venue pro folks who ordered before the 17th (1st in my case) but still don't have a phone to show for it? Can purchase date mean the date the phone actually arrives in my hands? not too likely eiter given the number of delays the DVP has seen.
  • oh boy....if this had been an XBox system like the Canadian deal, Verizon would be down 2 customers TODAY.
  • Ah this sucks. I bought Focus on Nov. 8th, first in the store, HD7 on Nov. 14th and another Focus on Nov. 26th. This really sucks.
  • I wonder if I can return and repurchase my HD7 at bestbuy to pick this deal up.
  • That's my exact plan. Not sure if Best Buy does it, but the AT&T stores have a 30 day return policy. Unfortunately I think I may have to pay the "restocking" fee, but it's still cheaper than a $60 360 game :)
  • Very good news. Thanks to Microsoft. South Beach Java
  • Only for the US I guess? :( Oh wait, I don't have an xbox I'm a PC gamer!! ;)
