How To Redeem A Call Of Duty: Ghosts Xbox 360/Xbox One Combo Pack Code

Here at GamePointsNow we’ve had a few customers who have had trouble redeeming the Call of Duty: Ghosts Xbox 360/Xbox One combo pack codes.

As the codes aren’t quite like your average Xbox game digital code we thought we’d put up a handy guide for anyone having trouble accessing their games on either platform.

call_of_duty_ghosts-HD

First of all there are a couple of things to bear in mind when redeeming the codes:

i) The Call of Duty: Ghosts codes CANNOT be redeemed on an Xbox One console. You will require access to your Gamertag on an Xbox 360 console or Xbox.com on a PC

ii) It is a single code that grants you a copy Call of Duty: Ghosts for BOTH systems which will be tied to the Gamertag used to redeem the code. You cannot gift one version to someone else. you will however be able to play both versions whenever you want

iii) The code grants you access to the Call of Duty: Ghosts Gold edition which comes with some added extras which will be available to you in game

Here’s how to redeem your code and access both versions:

1) The easiest way is to redeem the code via Xbox.com. Load it up in your browser of choice and sign into your account

1

2) Once signed in highlight your Gamertag in the top right corner and a drop down menu with “Redeem Code” should appear. Click Redeem Code

2

3) Once on this page simply click Redeem

3

4) Here just enter your 25 digit code exactly as it appears in your email from us. If you’re having trouble reading it let us know and we can type it out again for you. Once you’ve entered your code hit Confirm

5

5) You will then see a screen confirming the product you have redeemed a code for. Hit Confirm again to continue

6

6) You’ll then be notified that the code has redeemed successfully

Now to download your games

For the Xbox 360 version all you need to do is boot up your console and press the guide button once signed in

To access it via Xbox.com simply navigate to the Xbox One game marketplace on the website and select Call of Duty: Ghosts. You should notice that the price has changed to 0.00. Simply click Buy Now for Xbox One and the game will be sat waiting for you in the ” My games and apps section” next time you turn on your system. If your console is set correctly it will even download itself for you

capture-20140829-121425

To access it via the Xbox One console simply scroll right on the Xbox One dashboard and select the Games tab for the store

Then use the search function to find Call of Duty: Ghosts. It should then display as FREE so simply hit Buy and confirm your purchase and the download will start (it’s a hefty one though)

The Buyers Guide To May

After a couple of quiet weeks, it seems the games industry has gone mad again and decided to release a whole host of big hitting games in the few short weeks that make up the month of May.

So here’s a brief round up of some of the biggest games trying to tempt those precious pennies from your bank account.

2nd May 2014

Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS/2DS)

mario-golf-world-tour-goes-under-the-sea-L-w2jA08

Mario is back and this time, he’s brought his Golf clubs as Mario Golf: World Tour makes its way onto the 3DS. Play as a whole host of characters from all over the Mushroom Kingdom across a set of traditional and Mario themed courses. Mario Golf: World Tour offer a surprisingly deep golfing experience while also catering for players after a more casual golf game.

The Amazing Spiderman 2 (360/Xbox One/PS3/PS4/WiiU/PC/3DS)

The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2013-PS-Vita-Too-Late

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a good Spiderman game (which, incidentally, was also the last good movie tie-in game). Perennial Spiderman team Beenox are hoping their movie-based game can capture some of the elements that made the PS2 Spiderman 2 game so good. With improved web swinging and combat systems, things do look promising.

7th May 2014

Peggle 2 (360)

peggle2_update_ss5

Finally Xbox 360 owners can get their Peggle on as Peggle 2 makes its way onto the Microsoft’s older console. Featuring more Peggle Masters with brand new skills, Peggle 2 offers up more of the insanely addictive and joy inducing gameplay the series has become known for. Expect it to release on more platforms soon.

The God of War Collection (Vita)

original

Didn’t this come out already several times? This God of War collection brings Greece’s angriest man’s first two PS2 adventures to Sony’s portable handheld for the first time. Complete with enhanced visuals and full trophy support, this latest Kratos compilation allows you to do your angry shouting wherever you travel.

9th May 2014

Bound By Flame (PS4/PS3/360/PC)

070760a2-1789-4737-bced-1a47cbf08387

Bound By Flame is an action RPG that promises everything you’d expect from – well, an action RPG. Developer Spiders (this is the company name; it wasn’t actually developed by arachnids) is promising an epic 30 hour story , with player choices that affect the storyline. While it’s yet to be seen exactly what Bound By Flame offers that other titles haven’t, the game certainly does look interesting to genre fans so far.

16th May 2014

Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS)

Kirby-3DS-Dated-JP

Ever since its release in Japan earlier this year, this 2.5D platformer has received much praise – especially for it’s gorgeous art style and playability. Alongside the core games side scrolling platforming, Triple Deluxe also features a Smash Bros style 4 player fighting game and a rhythm action mini game featuring classic music from the Kirby series.

20th May 2014

Wolfenstein: The New Order (360/Xbox One/PS3/PS4/PC)

wolfenstein-the-new-order-download1

The granddaddy of the modern FPS returns this month, with MachineGames’ take on an alternative history where the Nazi’s triumphed in World War II. Wolfenstein: The New Order attempts to take shooters back to a time when everything was less grimy and serious and reintroduces straight out balls to the wall fun and explosions. While the decision to leave out online multiplayer may erk some, The New Order could hopefully inject some much needed fun into the single player FPS landscape.

Transistor (PS4,PC)

2458505-3592149661-trans

The studio that brought you the excellent Bastion returns with another action RPG. While comparisons with its predecessor are likely to be made, developer Super Giant Games is keen to stress that Transistor is very much its own game – though expect a familiar mix of careful strategy and planning with action heavy combat. With a typical gorgeous art style and a soundtrack that would make much bigger titles blush, Transistor is shaping up to be one of 2014′s most standout downloadable title.

27th May 2014

Watch_Dogs (PS3/PS4/360/Xbox One/PC)

maxresdefault

Finally the game that has wowed the last TWO E3′s is actually getting released. While it’s fair to say that some of the excitement for Ubisoft’s open world hacking title has died down since it’s initial reveal, there is still a lot of attention on this one. Recent trailers have posed questions as to the game’s true graphical quality, but we’re hoping the the fully hackable open city offers up enough unique gameplay opportunities to keep it interesting.

30th May 2014

Mario Kart 8 (Wii-U)

MK8_201403_11

The overworked portly plumber makes two appearances this month. Mario Kart brings all the favourite aspects of the previous games (and ahem…that blue shell) into the HD era, complete with all new anti gravity gameplay. With full local and online co-op and the ability to share your races on the Mii Verse via Mario Kart TV, Mario Kart 8 looks set to continue the series trend as the perfect multiplayer game for Nintendo systems. You can also snag a FREE Wii-U game if you register a copy after launch
