Found a weird Xbox 360 game I can't find anywhere online

Recommended Posts

Hey! I normally don't post on forums, but while I was at my local thrift store yesterday I picked up an Xbox 360 game I can't seem to find online.

 

The game is titled: "Games on Demand - NO DISC REQUIRED". I live in the Redmond Washington area where Microsoft is based and it looks like a game that was given out to Microsoft employees on the distribution team. Inside the case there is no disc, it is just a piece of paper with a code (that I scribbled out). Based off the front of the box the code just gives you some generic 360 titles, nothing too special.

 

It's not anything super special, but something that I find interesting enough to make a quick post about!

 

I'm just curious if anyone knows anything about this and what games it may consist of?

Thank you!

The absence of a barcode or UPC on the back of the case strongly suggests that this item was never intended for retail.

 

Have you tried the code? Does it work?

Just tried out the code right now. Xbox detected it, but unfortunately the code has been used. :(

I was going to say maybe an official Xbox magazine disc, but I'm pretty sure that stopped WAY before 2009 (the included demodisc I mean, not sure about the magazine)

 

Maybe a pack in with certain runs of 360? Though I doubt it that was the case, it would have a disc box, they usually just put the code card in by itself.

I managed to figure out what it is! I got in contact with someone who worked at Xbox and supposedly they put together 20-40 of these game codes and gave them to some employees at Microsoft along with a drinking glass and one other thing they couldn't quite remember. So it seems to be a code with a few games on it given to the Employees at Xbox.
