Xbox Live Rewards members to get extra credits for Microsoft Store game pre-orders

Microsoft is making the act of pre-ordering Xbox One and Xbox 360 games via their Microsoft Store website even more inviting for members of Xbox Live Rewards, offering them extra credits.

Microsoft already offers anyone who pre-orders a game on the site before its release a $10 Xbox store gift card on online credit. Now Xbox Live Rewards members can get 15,000 rewards credits if they do the same thing. That's the equivalent of $15 which can then be converted to credits on a Microsoft account to purchase games, movies and more from the Xbox Live store. Not bad. The only catch is that there is a limit of three games that can be pre-ordered to get the extra credits.

In addition, people who pre-order Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive on the Microsoft Store site will get some extra real world and in-game extras. The company said:

"When you pre-order Halo: The Master Chief Collection through the Microsoft Store, you will receive a "My Other Car is a Warthog" throwback license plate frame, a Master Chief window decal and an exclusive "Boom" Skull that unlocks 2x explosion physics for the Halo 2: Anniversary campaign. With Sunset Overdrive pre-orders through Microsoft Store, you'll get exclusive melee weapons Acordes de la Muerte and The Hangover as an added bonus to the Day One Edition. You can also get your hands on an exclusive white controller holder with the pre-order of the Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle."

Will you take advantage of this new deal?
