I already have AW:AN, is the only way to get a digital copy of the original Alan Wake with a physical copy of QB?

^ You get the original Alan Wake and AW:AN with the digital pre-order of QB. Not sure if both come with the physical pre-order.

Or you can pay $20 on Xbox Marketplace just for AW.

Well, I have the disc of AW already so I'm just looking for a free upgrade. I didn't see AW listed on the Xbox Marketplace as a bonus with QB, just AW:AN.

Re: Quantum Break (REMEDY, Apr. 5, 2016, Xbox One) - Time lords need not apply

^ yeah, it's badly worded on store.xbox.com

"Game Description: Pre-order Quantum Break and receive Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the Xbox 360 game playable on Xbox One. The code for this item will be delivered to your Xbox message center in 7-10 days. You can redeem the code on your Xbox One console or at xbox.com/redeemcode.

In the aftermath of a split second of destruction that fractures time itself, two people find they have changed and gained extraordinary abilities. One of them travels through time and becomes hell-bent on controlling this power. The other uses these new abilities to attempt to defeat him – and fix time before it tears itself irreparably apart. Both face overwhelming odds and make dramatic choices that will determine the shape of the future. Quantum Break is a unique experience; one part hard-hitting video game, one part thrilling live action show, featuring a stellar cast, including Shawn Ashmore as the hero Jack Joyce, Aidan Gillen as his nemesis Paul Serene and Dominic Monaghan as Jack’s genius brother William. Quantum Break is full of the vivid storytelling, rich characters and dramatic twists Remedy Entertainment are renowned for. Your choices in-game will affect the outcome of this fast-paced fusion between game and show giving the player a completely unique entertainment experience.

Quantum Break includes full game download of Alan Wake, the Xbox 360 game playable on Xbox One, as well as The Signal and The Writer add-ons. The code for these items will be delivered to your Xbox Message center within 7-10 days of Quantum Break’s release.
So yeah... it includes both AW and AW:AN along with the AW add-ons. But it looks like AW won't show up in your message center until after QB is released, whereas AW:AN should show up 7-10 days after you pre-order.

Ah, thanks. I didn't read to the end of the description because the first paragraph talks about AW:AN. Good lookin' out!

that's BS on MS.

i wanted to play the original because i jumped into AN and it's tough and i think a lot has to do with not playing the original and learning the mechanics. this one just throws you into the bizarre world...

Oh man, sexy cover. Very James Bond-ish. Looks like Booger from Revenge of the Nerds though.

Unfortunately GCU trumps steelbook.

Probably worth mentioning that this bundle is part of the $50 temporary price cut, $299 on Amazon

Wait, this game is only 720P on the Xbox One? Yeah, I guess if I get it, it'll be on the PC.

Supposedly, according to what Digital Foundry saw in the last demo.

That said, PC version is locked to Windows Store which has it's own issues and limitations

I think the limitations of Windows Store games (I forget what they are calling this) are a bit blown out of proportion. I guess the biggest one is not being able to disable VSync, but I don't care about that as I always play with VSync since tearing makes it unplayable for me. It's also very much still work in progress and I'm sure we'll be seeing improvements as time passes.

No FreeSync for you? As a new GSync monitor owner, it would be a big deal to me with PC games going forward.

Nope, and that will be resolved... soon. I play on a 65" TV, and I don't think any TV's support that tech, yet.

I pre-ordered on Xbox One, so I'll give the PC version a go (which is included in the pre-order) after I get my gaming PC up and running. The Windows Store issues will get worked out over time, right?

The game looks great, but I'm still not sure about the live-action stuff.
