EDIT: Editing because desktop SD isn't allowing me to post a deal. Slickdealers, if you are having trouble posting on SD through your PC/Desktop/Laptop, try posting from a smartphone first and then come back and edit it. Only way I could post a thread this morning. Confused

Reading this off of the Verge and also noticed it on Amazon when looking at a GTX 1070.

Microsoft is teaming up with Nvidia to give away free copies of Gears of War 4. If you purchase a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 as a graphics card, part of a system, or inside a laptop then you'll get a free copy of Gears of War 4. The promotion runs from today until October 30th, and as the game is Xbox Play Anywhere you'll get a copy of the PC version and Xbox One variant for free.

I apologize in advance if this was posted already. Searched "Gears of War" and got nothing similar. Mod request a merge if it is a repost. Thanks in advance.

Still aren't good prices (imho) on most of the cards at this point. For the GTX 1070's, it still seems the Gigabytes are consistently the cheapest barring stuff like the Jet deals.

So if I am an Xbox only player and I get a PC key, how will I be able to use the on my Xbox? I'm not sure the process.

They haven't said specifically as of yet but I would imagine you would get a key for the digitial version on the Xbox as well or that your accounts may be linked in some aspect and you'll be able to download to your Xbox with no extra key.

Has there been an instance of this between Windows/Xbox as of yet?

EDIT: Apparently it started recently. Here's is what I have read do far.

How to make it work

You will need an Xbox One, its latest update, and the Windows 10 Anniversary Update installed on your PC. Without these services, you won't be able to use the functionality. Purchase your favorite games on one platform, than log into your account on the other platform and you can resume playing. It's that simple.

Where to get the games?

You can purchase your favorite games through the Xbox app on Windows 10. Or, you can purchase games from the Windows Store, Xbox.com, or with a digital game code sold in stores. Again, you won't have to pay any additional charges to play it on a console or a PC.
Looks like it's tied to an account used on both PC/Xbox.

Another way to think about it is that the key is not PC/Xbox specific, but rather a Microsoft key, so you can redeem it with the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox gamertag. This gives you access to it on both Xbox and PC (provided the PC is signed into the same Microsoft account and on Windows 10).

This key will be linked to your xbox account - similar to how Halo Forge has you login using your xbox account.

Yes. You don't need both in order to play GoW4. You can play on either PC or on XBox One...but you have the option to play on both, if you have both systems and an account used on both.

Fail reading comprehension? Your question is answered above in the details. SMH

I'm feeling generous in your lack of an education though:

Offer only applies to orders placed after 06:00 a.m. (PT) September 20, 2016.wave
