The Xbox One provides much ease to the user when it comes to redeeming a code for add-on or a new game. Once the cover is scratched off, the code on the prepaid card is revealed. The user may also get a square-shaped QR code. All the user is required to do is stand in front of a console that’s Kinect enabled and speak ‘Xbox, use a code’. The console immediately directs any QR code that it sees.
Also, the user can key in letters and numbers that are standard codes. Users of Xbox who do not have Kinect connected in can log on to the Store app and choose Use a Code seen in the menu in the right hand corner.
Redeeming a code on the Xbox 360 console is also quite easy. Take the controller and hit the round-shaped Guide key in the middle. The pop-up menu will surface and then hover the top joystick on the controller to the left side twice to access the My Games & Apps section. Now start moving the top joystick towards the bottom and start hovering over the Redeem Code menu option and then hit A. Make use of the joystick as well as S button to key in numbers and letters on the prepaid code for Xbox live subscription or game content. This can be done by shifting the joystick which enables the on-screen cursor to hover that the specific letter and press A. Once the code is correctly entered, hit Start button on the controller.
