The dust is just beginning to settle after the announcement of Quantum Break coming to PC. It’s a big move on Microsoft’s part, taking a key Xbox One cornerstone and effectively ridding it of exclusivity. We’ve seen already the terrifyingly huge system requirements, but now we can actually wrap our eyes around a brand new Quantum Break trailer and see what the fuss is all about. Or not, as the case may be.
But that’s not all, because Microsoft is also running a slightly strange promotion that may mean pre-ordering a copy of Quantum Break on PC is a bad move. Firstly Quantum Break looks as if it’s going to be a Windows 10 Store exclusive. And secondly, because anybody who pre-orders a digital copy of Quantum Break on Xbox One, will receive a 25-digit redemption code for a free copy of the PC version.
Why should that affect your pre-order? Well Quantum Break is going to be a huge deal for Xbox One owners. They’ve been looking forward to it for years. It’s going to shift millions of copies. If only a small number, say 500,000, were to buy it digitally, that would mean an additional 500,000 Quantum Break Windows 10 keys could potentially be flooding the market. We all know the result when there’s sky-high supply - rock bottom prices. When Microsoft follows through on this deal there’s going to be thousands upon thousands of cheap Quantum Break keys. That would beat spending the likely $60 on the Windows Store wouldn’t it?
Anyway, enough of that, it's trailer time...
Quantum Break is coming to PC and Xbox One on April 5th. In the meantime be sure to check out those huge system requirements for Quantum Break to make sure your rig is up to the task!
