Microsoft is offering a free digital download to consumers whose Xbox One's have defective optical drives. Those offered a game can choose from Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon. Hopefully that'll hold you over until your new console arrives.

According to their latest reports, Microsoft has spent $2.1 billion on the Xbox division, but only made $1.7 billion, putting the department at a $400 million dollar loss, attributed to the Xbox One. Many are using this as an opportunity to call the Xbox One a failure, but there's still time; it's too early to expect a new console to be entirely profitable.

There have been some developments from Microsoft, since yesterday when we shared news of a woman winning $10,000 after suing the company for its 'shady upgrade system.'

Specifically, Microsoft told The Verge that it’s tinkered more with the upgrade prompt due to “feedback that some of our valued customers found it confusing.” The new prompt, coming out this week, will have “clear options to upgrade now, schedule a time, or decline the free offer.”



Your last chance for a free upgrade is July 29th, after that it'll cost you $119.
