It's a good time to be a GameStop general manager! Looks like Microsoft will not allow Sony to steal their thunder in terms of giving these GMs some free hardware and software. Just a few hours after GameStop executives revealed at their expo in Las Vegas that all of its general managers will be getting a free PlayStation 4 and seven games, they have now said those same people will get a free Xbox One console from Microsoft as well.
As with the PS4 freebie reveal, the first word on the Xbox One offer came via social networks such as this Twitter account:
As we did before with the PS4 news, we contacted GameStop and their PR rep Jackie Smith confirmed the news to us via email. Again, the free Xbox One console will be given to all of the general managers of GameStop's over 6,500 retail stores, regardless if they are attending the GameStop Expo this week.
There's no word yet if the free Xbox One will also come with a selection of games, but if so we will update this post with the news and, hopefully, a full list of those titles.
