Heads Up to Everyone Getting HW2 via Amazon Prime

OP Guardian Hope

Just a heads up as I did not notice this until I was about to pre-order but the discounted 20% off version doesn't appear to include a copy for Windows 10.

Take a look here (20% discount "Box" Copy: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013GZ67Y8/ref=s9_acsd_bw_wf_a_e3hubwf_cc_38?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-5&pf_rd_r=V734AHWAJTWJ85Q9JE3W&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=2528535082&pf_rd_i=468642

Versus the Digital Copy: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013GZ67Y8/ref=s9_acsd_bw_wf_a_e3hubwf_cc_38?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-5&pf_rd_r=V734AHWAJTWJ85Q9JE3W&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=2528535082&pf_rd_i=468642

Notice how it says "Xbox One" "Windows 10" in the main product description "from the Manufacture?"

So, if you want to take advantage of "Play Anywhere" be sure to pick up the "Digital Copy" which is fully priced. If you want it just for Xbox One, well, it's 20% off.
I think only digital copies qualify for the Play Anywhere, no matter the title.
Pretty sure the "Play Anywhere" only applies to digital copies sold through the official xbox/microsoft store.

Well, Amazon's digital store is not exactly the "Xbox/Microsoft Store" but the digital copy comes as "Play Anywhere."

Digital it is it seems; at least for me. I'd rather get what feels like two copies (since XB1 and Win10 are two different platforms) for the price of one.

But just a heads up for those taking advantage of the Prime offer: you won't be getting "Play Anywhere"
Only digital copies of games can be used with Play Anywhere. Says so right on xbox.com
