The Rebate and Redemption of The Master Chief Collection

Microsoft Rewards is offering 15,000 Rewards Credits if you buy Halo: The Master Chief Collection or other related add-ons and videos for the month of December through the Xbox Store. This comes as another incentive for fans to further invest in the Halo franchise before Halo 5 drops. However, the gameplay problems associated with The Master Chief Collection remains — valued customers who have already bought the collection are still outraged and reporting issues.

Matchmaking times have been unbearably long, and many also cite low success rates when searching for multiplayer sessions. On November 24th, 343 Industries Head Bonnie Ross released a statement that staff are acknowledging these issues and are working hard to fix them, emphasizing their priority on matchmaking. Ross also went on to say:

While our team works on continual improvements and towards solutions, my commitment to you is that we will take care of all owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  Our primary and continued focus is first on fixing the issues at hand.  Once we’ve done that, we will detail how we will make this right with our fans.

While this rebate only currently helps those who purchased the digital version of the game, it appears that Ross is out to make it right to Halo fans. Meanwhile, some unsatisfied fans are engaged in discussion on the option of refunding digital downloads. Hopefully, it will be sooner rather than later. This is an ongoing series of events, and we’ll update on this as more information surfaces.

Yo! My name is Mike Davies and I'm a 20-something who has been gaming since I could hold a NES ZAPPER and pull on a Power Glove. I just graduated from a CSU with a BA in English: Creative Writing. My passions are writing, entertaining, and video games. Which makes sense as why for a time I went into YouTube. I landed into the niche community of Pokemon and made lots of waves as a Wi-Fi battler under the name FizzyStardust. I don't do much on that channel anymore, but I do hope to expand in the future into more video gaming and entertainment avenues on YouTube.Some of my favorite games are the main Pokemon series (don't come at me with mystery dungeon), Fallout 3, WWF No Mercy, The Force Unleashed series, and the Madden franchise. Right now my interests lie in rekindling my love for the Pokemon TCG, Hearthstone and trying to learn how to play League of Legends.Star Wars, Buffy Summers, and video games are my true loves.

Have your say!
