If you're planning to buy some of these Xbox One launch titles, you might as well get extra cash into your Xbox account for your trouble.

Friday, November 22nd marks the beginning of the Xbox One (and the start of real competition for your next-gen dollars). While pre-orders for the console are sold out everywhere, the games are pretty well-stocked. Discounts are nigh impossible to find, but if you buy before the Friday release date, Microsoft Store is throwing in a $10 Xbox Gift Code incentive, redeemable on Xbox LIVE.

Only a few games qualify, but among those that do are the "Day One Editions" of Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, and Forza Motorsport 5. All of these "Day One Editions" come with a special collectable case and each its own unique in-game bonus. Ryse: Son of Rome gets an exclusive sword and multiplayer co-op map. Dead Rising 3 gets two unique outfits and weapons with special attributes. Forza Motorsport 5's Day One Edition includes 3 extra/exclusive cars.

This week also marks the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Need for Speed: Rivals on PC. While there are no outright price breaks, digital retailer Green Man Gaming has a decent credit/cash back offer. Need for Speed: Rivals will yield you either a $10 credit or $8 cash back. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag gets either an $8 credit or $6 cash back - your choice. If you happen to live in the UK or EU, GMG has a 20% off coupon for AC IV instead of a credit/cash back offer.
