Serious video game buffs will be pleased to know that pre-orders for the upcoming Xbox One will come pre-packaged with FIFA 14. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) confirmed this on Tuesday morning. With this game, players will be able to create their dream soccer team with a mix of legendary stars and today’s favorites.
Xbox working with Infinity Ward and Activision
Xbox is also working with Inifinity Ward and Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) to make an exclusive version of Call of Duty: Ghosts which will come bundled in different European markets. This particular bundle will also include exclusive content.
If FIFA 14 isn’t a game you’re interested in, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) offers a deal you may be into. Their new promotion allows users to trade up select Xbox 360 games and get the Xbox One version for just $10. This promotion ends on December 31 and is good for the following eight titles Call of Duty: Ghosts; NBA 2K14; Battlefield 4; Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag; FIFA 14; Madden NFL 25; Watch Dogs; and Need For Speed Rivals.
Xbox one title for $10
Since Xbox One titles start at $60, Amazon will offer a $25 bonus credit and a trade-in value of $25, this means users will purchase the new title for just $10. PCMag explained it best, “It works like this: Head over to Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and select a qualifying Xbox 360 game, then submit your trade-in. You’ll need to send the game in for processing and wait for it to be received and graded. When your trade is accepted, you can add a qualifying Xbox One game to your cart and the bonus credit will be applied automatically to your purchase.”
This offer is only valid on Xbox One same title purchases originally from the 360. And users who purchased their games from a store other than Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) can still take advantage of this offer. Surprisingly their isn’t a similar deal for PlayStation 4 games but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the near future.
