Can I Buy this game for Xbox One without a CC?

Hi, I'm pretty much brand new to the Xbox, Xbox One is my first system and I have already achieved full gamerscore for Alan Wake (loved that game). I have bought credit on the Xbox store and for some reason I cannot buy AWAN as I want more Alan Wake. I've had identity theft happen to me in the past and will not post credit card info on the Xbox, and was wondering why I'm not allowed to spend Xbox currency on an Xbox game? Is there a workaround? Of some of the people I asked I was told that I have to get it through an Xbox 360 and it should be crossplay. That sounds really weird.

Is this true?

Note: I did call Microsoft and the 2 people I spoke to did not know why that was happening and said it should have accepted the points.

Yes, it should allow you to spend that currency.

Since you are posting here, you have access to an internet browser so go to xbox.com, search the game, and purchase it there. Then, go to the My Games & Apps section of your Xbox One, scroll to the right, and you will see the game available for download.

i know you cant buy xbox 360 games on xbox one without a debit/credit card. at least not yet.

i tried to buy south park stick of truth while it was on sale but i couldnt use my microsoft account money. pay by card was the only option. kinda sucks and i hope they let you use microsoft account money at somepoint.

Will this be fixed in the future? It makes no sense to me. Also, I tried the xbox website mentioned by Floyd and it also only accepted CC's.

I just found this issue online at the Xbox feedback website and thousands appear to be complaining about not being able to spend their currency on BC games. Didn't know this and completely surprised Xbox support did not know about this.

Really hope this does get fixed because they're losing a lot of sales by cutting off customers who don't use credit/debit.

No worries, it's all new to me, as I've never owned any Xbox before and I love horror games so Alan Wake was a must for me seeing as they canceled Silent Hills which is part of my favorite horror series. I wish I had known before spending money on Xbox currency as the only way it seems you can find out is going through the transaction itself and finding it out the hard way.

It wouldn't be hard for them to allow Xbox currency would it?

Actually you can, if you buy them on the 360 console. A CC just verifies payment. I would suggest contacting xbox support to be sure.

I know this thread is from last month, but who cares?

Ahhh maybe I am posting this in the wrong location, but yeah I am referring to Xbox One or the website. I don't own a 360 and don't see why I need to go through another console to buy it.

Anyhow, there is another "workaround" which I finally ended up doing today. You can buy a Visa gift card and do it that way without putting in your personal info. Really hope they fix payment options for Xbox One. Just bought the game with it.

Anyways, thanks for all the responses, hope this thread helps people who are uncomfortable with putting personal information online.
