Christmas is here, and so are the holiday season deals. Gamers, both Xbox and PS4 players, have seen wonderful deals and discounts since Thanksgiving. Microsoft has since then announced a number of deals on consoles and game discounts for Xbox One and Xbox 360 players. There have always been special offers for Xbox Live Gold members.


As Microsoft claims, its biggest-ever sale for the Xbox Store is starting December 22. Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has also given out details in a post published on his official blog. He wrote, “The sale will offer 17 days of great deals on hundreds of games, movies & TV shows and apps, including daily and weekly offers counting down to the New Year and continuing through Jan. 7.”

Xbox One players can enjoy deals on the following games:

  1. Halo 5: Guardians,
  2. Rise of the Tomb Raider,
  3. Forza Motorsport 6,
  4. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition,
  5. Rare Replay
  6. Fallout 4,
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops III,
  8. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Other than the deals listed above, Xbox One players can also “take advantage of discounts on more than 10 Backward Compatibility games offered during the sale,” says Hryb. The deals are for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 players. Microsoft is offering discounts between 40% to 60% off. Xbox Live Gold subscribers will enjoy additional benefits as usual: they can save 10% extra compared to other players.
