Microsoft hands out freebies to some loyal fans
Yesterday Microsoft started sending out thank you emails to selected Xbox fans with Xbox One rewards inside. There were various rewards on offer from free Forza 5 cars, the full Killer Instinct game unlocks and on rare occasions Xbox One systems with games.
It appears this is linked to Xbox Rewards and in order to be selected you needed to have either/or a high Gamerscore or long Live tenure. Of course, that would return quite a large list of people and not everyone is getting something so it appears to be a simple lottery from the returned list of people.
Good luck and let us know if you get anything, one of the staffers here received a Killer Instinct unlock which you can see after the break.
