Microsoft Removes Mistakenly Free Fallout 4 Copies, But Gives $10 As an Apology

If you were one of the many that got Fallout 4 while it was mistakenly made available for free yesterday night, the bad news is that your copy is no longer valid. Microsoft fixted the issue by removing the license, so even if you downloaded it, it won’t work.

The good news is that to apologize for the “inconvenience” the house of Xbox is offering $10 to those affected, to be deposited in their Microsoft account by the end of the month.

You can read the full message below. If you’re eligible, you should have received it, or you should be receiving it soon.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
